Dining Room Storage Ideas

The dining room is a great place to get creative with storage. This is the room where pretty dishes, vases, and candlestick holders are kept. And if you are someone who loves to entertain, then you probably have a lot of dishes and glassware to store. I love to entertain and have a lot of dishes, so I am sharing some dining room storage ideas with you.

My favorite way to store items in the dining room is by displaying them on a pretty piece of furniture. When I buy dishes for entertaining, I like to keep them neutral and stick with white, glass, and gold. When I stick to neutrals it makes it easier to display them and it also means the dishes will match any decor when we entertain.

Here is a closer look at the left side of our dining room cabinet. As you can see, I displayed a variety of dishes and trays. I also found the perfect basket that fits on the bottom shelf and holds lot of goodies! I will give you a closer look into that now.

Let’s take a peek inside of the basket, shall we? This is where I like to store smaller items like cloth napkins, tablecloths, table runners, candle holders, battery operated tea candles, and other items for entertaining. I love having all of these items handy in this basket for parties, dinners, and showers. I have used all of these items multiple times and definitely got my money’s worth!

This is another look at items I store in the basket. I forgot to mention plate holders. Also, you cannot see them very well, but I have several small square mirrors that I bought at Dollar Tree. I love sitting them on the dining room table and you can see what that looks like here.

Now back to the dining room cabinet, let’s take a look at the right side. As you can see, there are more dishes, a cake plate, and some candle holders that were found at the Goodwill. I love how all of these items look together and I love that they are all useful!
