English Dining Room Storage


English Mahogany Three-piece Vitrine Cabinet

When you think about a dining room you usually do not think about storage. In fact, though, the dining room is a great place for both decorative and practical storage. A good storage option can make more room, create a beautiful taking piece, and be a great asset to your home. Here are some storage ideas for your dining room.

1. China Cabinet – The classic dining room storage option, a china cabinet is both a place to showcase your good dishes and a convent place to store the, Personally I show off my pretty china in the top part and store things like good silver and tablecloths underneath. Even table accessories like candlesticks and centerpieces can be stored in a large china cabinet.

2. Display Cabinet – This is another great alternative for your dining room. A display cabinet can hold your pretty dishes, knickknacks, or other accessories that you do not have a place to put in your home. A great place to keep delicate items out of children’s hands, a glass display cabinet can be a good storage option for pretty things.

3. Buffet Table –A nice, solid buffet table is a great thing to have on hands for big parties and Thanksgiving dinners. Thankfully, most come with drawers or cabinetry that are great for holding serving dishes and other items you have no where else to store.

4. Angled Shelving –Take lean on me to another level. Angled storage is great in a room that is visually small. The small top and large bottom allows for tons of storage without seeming to take up tons of room.

5. Modern Shelving – Modern shelving in cube shapes and sharp corners can add a touch of newness to a traditional space like a dining room. Bring some modern into your storage!

6. Industrial Shelving – For a truly modern twist, an industrial shelving unit can be a startling but chic way to add storage to your dining room. With exposed metal, piping, and unvarnished wood or metal shelving, it adds visual interest and texture while still holding your stuff.

7. Bookshelves with Taste –If all you have is some bookshelves, then spruce them up with a touch of lace. Adding lace to the back of the bookshelves and filling them with tasteful collections of dishes or knick knacks means adding storage to your dining room without looking cheap or tawdry.

These are just a few of the great storage ideas for your dining room. There are all sorts of options. Take a look at your area and see what would be the best fit for your dining room.
