Dining Room Storage Cabinets

The dining room – is a space for laughter, shared meals, and creating memories. But what happens when the space becomes overrun with mess? Dishes pile up, table linens lose their designated spot, and the room's charm fades. This is where dining room storage cabinets come to the rescue.

Hudson Furniture understands the importance of a well-organised and functional dining room. We offer a diverse selection of dining room storage cabinets designed to declutter your space and just make it all about you!

This comprehensive guide will read into the world of dining room storage cabinets, helping you find the perfect solution for your needs.

Why Choose Dining Room Storage Cabinets?

Dining room storage cabinets offer many benefits:

  • Improve Organisation: 

Remove clutter and keep your dining essentials neatly tucked away. Dishes, table linens, candles, serving platters – everything has a designated spot, making it easier to find what you need.

  • Maximised Space: 

Utilise vertical space efficiently. Cabinets come in various heights, allowing you to use unused walls. This is especially beneficial for smaller dining rooms.

  • Sophisticated Style: 

Dining room storage cabinets are not just functional; they can be a beautiful focal point of your space. Choose from various styles, materials, and finishes to complement your dining room furniture.

  • Increased Functionality

Look for cabinets with adjustable shelves, drawers, and compartments. This allows you to customise the storage to fit your specific needs.

  • Display and Storage: 

Some cabinets feature glass doors, allowing you to showcase your prized china or server while keeping them dust-free.

Types of Dining Room Storage Cabinets

Hudson Furniture offers a wide range of dining room storage cabinets to suit your taste and space requirements

A classic choice, sideboards are typically long and low cabinets with drawers and cabinets. They provide ample storage for dishes, tablecloths, and other dining essentials. The top surface can be used for a buffet display or as a serving station. 

Like sideboards, buffets often have a taller profile and may feature additional features like a hutch or display cabinets. This provides even more storage and display space. 

  • China Cabinets: 

Designed specifically to showcase your finest china and glassware, china cabinets typically have glass doors and may be illuminated. Some models have drawers and shelves at the bottom for additional storage.

  • Hutches: 

These are top cabinets that sit on top of buffets or sideboards. Hutches offer additional storage for dishes, glasses, or decorative items. They can add a touch of elegance and visual interest to your dining room.

While not traditionally used for dining storage, bookcases can be versatile. Choose a closed-door bookcase to hide dishes and other dining items, or opt for open shelves to display decorative items and serveware.

Choosing the Right Dining Room Storage Cabinet

When selecting a dining room storage cabinet, consider the following factors:

  • Space: 

Measure your dining room carefully to ensure the cabinet will fit comfortably without overwhelming the space.

  • Storage Needs: 

Evaluate how much storage you require. Consider the number of dishes you own, how often you entertain, and what type of items you need to store.

  • Style

Choose a cabinet that complements your existing dining room furniture. Consider your home's overall style and opt for a cabinet that seamlessly integrates with your décor.

  • Material: 

Dining room storage cabinets come in various materials like wood, glass, metal, or a combination. Wood offers a timeless look, while glass adds a touch of sophistication. Metal can add a modern edge, while a combination allows you to create a unique look.

  • Functionality: 

Look for cabinets with features that suit your needs. Adjustable shelves offer versatility, while drawers are perfect for storing table linens or cutlery. Consider cabinets with glass doors if you want to showcase your finest china.

Organising Your Dining Room with Storage Cabinets

  • Categories: Dishes, glassware, table linens, and serving platters can all be assigned designated shelves or drawers. This makes it easier to find what you need and keeps your cabinet organised.
  • Utilise Dividers and Organisers: Invest in drawer dividers, shelf risers, and clear containers to maximise space and compartmentalise smaller items like napkins, placemats, and cutlery.
  • Label Everything: Label shelves and drawers with clear labels for easy identification. This is particularly helpful if you have multiple people using the cabinets.
  • Rotate Seasonal Items: When not in use, store seasonal dishes and décor in labelled containers. This frees up valuable space in your cabinet for everyday items.
  • Multi-Functional Furniture: Consider a cabinet dining room table. These space-saving tables feature storage compartments underneath the tabletop, perfect for storing dishes, tablecloths, or other essentials.

Styling Your Dining Room Storage Cabinet

Dining room storage cabinets can be more than just functional pieces; they can be a beautiful focal point of your space. Here are some tips for styling your cabinet:

Artwork and Accessories: To add a touch of personality, place artwork, decorative objects, or photographs on top of your cabinet.

  • Greenery: Introduce a touch of life with a small potted plant or a floral arrangement.
  • Tabletop Décor: Use decorative trays, candles, or sculptures to create a visually appealing display on the cabinet surface.
  • Lighting: Highlight your displayed items using strategically placed table lamps or recessed lighting.
  • Coordinate Textiles: Match the table linens you use with the colours or patterns of your cabinet for a cohesive look. 

Material and Finish Considerations

Wood: Wood cabinets offer a timeless and elegant look. Popular wood choices for dining room storage cabinets include solid wood like oak, walnut, or cherry and wood veneers that provide a similar aesthetic at a more affordable price point. Consider the overall colour scheme of your dining room when choosing a wood tone. Light-coloured woods like maple or ash can create a feeling of spaciousness, while darker woods like mahogany or espresso can add a touch of sophistication.

Glass: Cabinets with glass doors allow you to showcase your prized china or server while keeping them dust-free. Consider clear glass for a traditional look or frosted glass for a more modern aesthetic.

Metal: Metal accents or hardware can add a touch of modern edge to your dining room storage cabinets. Brushed nickel or chrome finishes are popular choices for a contemporary look.

Paint: Painted cabinets offer various colour options to complement your décor. Consider bold colours for a statement piece or neutral tones for a timeless look.

Additional Features to Consider:

  • Soft-Close Doors and Drawers: These features prevent slamming and ensure a quieter and more polished experience.
  • Built-in Wine Racks: For the wine enthusiast, cabinets with built-in wine racks offer a convenient and stylish storage solution for your favourite bottles.
  • Hidden Compartments: Some cabinets offer hidden compartments or pull-out drawers, perfect for storing tablecloths, napkins, or other items you don't want on display.
  • Lighting: Cabinets with built-in lighting can showcase your displayed items and create a more inviting atmosphere in your dining room.


Dining room storage cabinets are a valuable asset for any home. They help declutter your space, maximise storage potential, and add a touch of style to your dining room.
