Choosing the right storage for your room depends on the size of your dining room and the style of your dining set. There are many options to choose from including sideboards, shelves, bookcases and display cabinets.

Sideboards come in different sizes from a 2 door right up to a 4 door depending on the size of your space. Choosing a sideboard will provide excellent amounts of space as well as providing a complimenting look to your dining set.

Bookcases come in a low or tall design depending on your room size or look you are trying to create. Bookshelves can be styled to create a beautiful eye catching piece by turning books sideways and arranging ornaments in unique displays. Your bookcase doesn’t have to be used for displaying books, many people who place bookcases in there dining room place specially decorated china on them to display there beautiful designs to there friends and family.
Display cabinets are used in a similar way to bookcases, they are used to display or store there best champagne or wine glasses with beautiful glass vases or fruit bowls that you accumulate over the years. Display cabinets have different designs; some have grand glass doors that protect the contents of the cabinet where as some have an open top design with storage cupboards underneath.
Choosing storage solutions can be difficult if your dining set doesn’t have matching ranges or if you want to create a contrasting look in your room. Your dining set is always the first piece of furniture that people notice when they walk in; choosing a piece of furniture that matches your table will blend into the surroundings making it less noticeable.
If you prefer your furniture to make a lasting impression then choosing a contrasting piece of furniture will stand out against your dining set and create a visually exciting look in your dining room. Creating your contrasting look needs to be done tastefully, placing a dark wooden table with a white wooden sideboard will create the look beautifully.
You can maximise the storage space in your dining room by mixing storage solutions together. If you have a small dining room than placing a sideboard with storage shelves above it can create a unique compact look that is eye catching.
If you have a larger dining room than you may want to add a sideboard with a bookcase or display cabinet. Placing the storage pieces at different parts of the room will provide a spacious feel without cluttering the room.
