Dining Room Storage Ideas to Keep Your Space Clutter-Free
Good storage is crucial to keeping a dining room tidy and clutter-free—and it can even give you space to stow away excess kitchen equipment
Dining room storage is really important to keep the room tidy and clutter-free – and it gives you room to store excess kitchen equipment. Few of us have the luxury of a separate dining room these days. For most of us, a dining table is part of an open plan living room or is the centre of all the action in a kitchen. Which means we need to be canny about where we store all the bits and bobs we need to make mealtimes possible.
Well planned fittings make a dining room efficient – and beautiful. Here’s how to utilise storage in your dining room.

Think beyond the dining room
If you have the space, consider incorporatinga larder-style cupboard into your dining room scheme. Storage on this mighty scale means there shouldn’t be anything left cluttering up your dining room. Use a tonal colour palette that is in keeping with the rest of the scheme to provide balance. Alternatively, opt for a glass-fronted display unit. Use the visible shelves for decorative accessories and conceal practical pieces in the drawers below or elsewhere.
Make it multifunctional
Get super-organised with a fitted bench that doubles as a storage unit. Built-in bench seating like this corner design is an incredibly efficient use of space, especially in smaller rooms. Wood is not just practical, it adds texture and warmth to a scheme, too. Include conventional drawers and pull-out baskets under the seat for versatile additional storage that is easy to access and smart and streamlined when not in use.
