Dining room storage adds beauty and function. Shown with NewStyle™ hybrid shutters.

Add a storage solution to your dining room, and go from clutter to clean.


Dining room storage furniture has many names, depending on its design, what part of the country you live in and the style of your home, including sideboard, china cabinet, hutch, buffet, breakfront and baker’s rack.

A dining room storage solution is both functional and beautiful. It’s a place to keep needed dining room elements, such as flatware, table linens, china, serving dishes, liquor, candles and more. At the same time, a storage solution can display your most beautiful dining objects. And, as far as practicality is concerned, you can actually use it as a serving place for drinks and appetizers, coffee and dessert, or a whole buffet meal!

A major choice is whether your storage should have open or closed storage or glass fronts to protect items but still keep them on display. Many options include both open and closed storage areas so you can display your most beautiful china, glassware and serving pieces, and, at the same time, hide the less-display worthy pieces!

Some storage solutions are built-in, which can help make a small dining area appear larger. And sometimes storage is disguised and tucked away under a window seat. Think about adding shallow wall-mounted shelves where you can display serving platters and glassware.
 

Dining room storage solutions come in all sizes, finishes, shapes and styles: old or new, traditional or modern, or anything in between. Popular styles include Victorian, craftsman, French provincial, mid century modern and industrial style. You can even repurpose a dresser or armoire meant for the bedroom.

Clear the clutter from your dining room and, at the same time, make your dining room more beautiful by adding a storage solution!
