When it comes to organizing the dining room, functional furniture is key.
My Grandparents used to have a hutch and display cabinet on top, many people now use a buffet, or extra cabinet space.
Use the drawers to store smaller items, and glass front cabinets to display your favorite pieces.
HOW TO DIVIDE YOUR STORAGE:
1. Cabinets — Keep seasonal table decor, Holiday dishes, Serving Trays and Bowls
2. Shelves — China, Cake stands, Picture frames or decor, Vintage dishes
3. Drawers — Napkin rings, Cloth napkins, Placemats, Charger plates, Tablecloths/Runners, Extra silverware, Placecards or frames, Candles and lighter/matches.
