Dining Room Storage with Style & Function
A dining room is so much more enjoyable when it’s functional and that means choosing the right kind of storage. Being able to easily access what you need means setting the table quickly and not having to leave your guests often during dinner. While china cabinets and sideboards are a necessity they should also add style to the space. These are some of our favorite pieces that combine style with function to help you make the most of your dining space.
If dinner parties are a common occurrence in your home then consider a sleek sideboard with plenty of storage. Store extra dishes out of sight and use the open surface to keep drinks or sides within reach. You’ll be able to set up for entertaining at even a moment’s notice.
Don’t overwhelm your dining space with a piece that’s too big. You can have storage with a light and airy look by choosing a china cabinet that has open shelving. With this easy-going piece you can casually display dishes by stacking plates and cups while mixing in bigger items such as pitchers and bowls. Everyday items will always be at the ready.
In a small dining space you might think less is more. But adding the right sideboard can make it more functional. This piece is designed to hold bottles and glasses with enclosed storage to boot. This small but mighty sideboard is perfect for stashing linens and placemats. Add color and a casual vibe with leaning artwork and fresh flowers.
A statement piece adds major style. If you prefer the more traditional china cabinet but crave a modern look then opt for a piece with glass doors and angular design such as a fretwork. You can display your prettiest dishes and barware while keeping necessary, but not as pretty items, hidden behind closed doors.
Take advantage of a large dining space with a generously sized china cabinet. Even if you don’t want to display china you can make great use of all the storage a piece like this has to offer. Display everyday dishes while mixing in decorative items for a little personality. This piece is perfect for a modern farmhouse or a home with coastal or cottage style. Use all that space underneath for extras that are only used on special occasions.
