Classic Credenza

Some pieces never go out of style. Elevate your formal dining room and keep special-occasion items safely stored but ready to use by opting for a classic credenza. If your space is more modern or you're working with contemporary furniture, an antique or traditional piece like the credenza above can balance out the clean lines and bring in a lot of character and charm.

Twin Shelves

Add twice as much functionality to your dining room with twin shelves or storage cabinets. In this adorable gathering space from designer Stefani Stein, identical fire engine-red bookcases free up the floors and allow for double the amount of dishes and decor. Taller units like these are also a smart solution in a house with young children, as they help keep fragile items and adult beverages out of reach.

Busy Built-Ins

Floor-to-ceiling shelves can offer a lot of storage, but they can also be pretty tricky to style. You want to fill them out without making the space look messy or overwhelming. So, what's the secret? Add punchy contact paper, like Design 4 Corners did in the dining room above. A lively print like florals or painted dots will help "disguise" your decor and make the built-ins seem clean and cohesive (not to mention chic).
