3. Distinctively contemporary – modern dining room storage ideas
Formal dining rooms often have, well, a formal feel. Introduce a contemporary edge with more modern dining room storage solutions. Floating shelves have a cool minimal appearance and are a great way to display pieces of art or even a row of paperbacks with colour-coordinated spines.
Need more display space? Consider a ladder bookcase. Exactly as the name suggests, this is an open plan book shelf that leans against the wall and has broad shelves spaced like the rungs of a ladder. Ladder shelving is very functional as the shelves are graduated in size and are often wide enough to accommodate larger pieces of pottery or framed photos. And because they're open plan they’re an excellent place for a cool and modern display.
If contemporary is most definitely your style, you’ll find plenty to love at Furniture Village. Take a look at dining room storage pieces from ALF, an Italian brand that’s famous for its sleek and precisely-engineered contemporary sideboards, curio cabinets and display units, and Habufa, masters of modern rustic storage solutions.
