Credenzas, Sideboards, Buffet Tables & Wine Bars
Dining room storage is integral to dining areas small and large alike. From credenzas and side boards to buffet tables and wine bars, dining room cabinets offer smart storage for tableware, linens, and more. Though similar in appearance and function, each of these pieces has numerous dining room-friendly storage features that will lend added convenience and functionality to your space.
Of these dining room storage units, credenzas – also called credenza cabinets or credenza tables – are some of the widest pieces, featuring a long, low-slung design with sliding or hinged doors. Wood credenzas are the among the most popular designs. Modern credenzas offer sleek silhouettes and spacious tops ideal for serving cocktails or housing additional glassware, bar tools, garnishes, and more. Inside a credenza, you can store flatware, dinnerware, glassware, table linens, wine, non-perishable foods, and other dining room essentials you’d like to keep within easy reach.
In contrast to credenzas, sideboards are more like console tables. They are taller and more narrow in depth than credenzas, suitable as hallway tables as well as dining room storage. As such, sideboard cabinets are ideal for small dining rooms in need of compact storage.
Though similar to both credenzas and sideboards, buffet tables are a hybrid of the two. They’re tall like sideboards, but are also as wide and spacious as credenzas, able to hold buffet-style spreads of food and beverages.
If you’re looking for dining room storage for drinkware and cocktail essentials, consider a bar table or wine bar. Equipped with cubbies, cabinets, drawers, built-in stemware racks, or bottle racks, these pieces are designed specifically for wine and drinkware. A wine bar makes an excellent addition to a living room, office, dining room, or other area where casual or expert connoisseurs can entertain friends and family.
