Design a dining scheme around your storage requirements. Take advantage of all the space available with floor-to-ceiling shelving. Fit shelves into unused alcoves and use for books and decorative pieces so you won’t need to provide floorstanding shelves or cupboards. Paint your shelves in a different colour to your walls to provide a neat contrast.
Jazz up a corner of your dining room with a painted dresser – this design has lots of display space for your treasured crockery. Alternatively, make the most of ceiling height by fitting extra-tall cupboards, storing those rarely needed items in the harder-to-reach zones. Line your display cabinets with textured wallpaper for a bespoke touch.
If you have objects that are worthy of showing off then display them along an open shelf. Lay a carefully curated selection of ceramics and pretty trinkets along the top of a false wall, which acts as a shelf. Alternatively, floating shelves keep a dining room neat and clutter-free and are a good way to make use of every inch, especially if you’re short of floor space for freestanding units. They also add personality to a plain wall.
Work in a stylish bank of built-in cabinetry. Bespoke cupboards can be slotted neatly into alcoves and are ideal for display or storage. Remember symmetry is always pleasing so try to achieve a balanced look. If your space is verging on the small side, consider fitting unusual doors with mirrored insets or updating existing ones. Mirrors can have an enormous visual impact on a space.
