How to Use the Space Around the Dining Room Table

Beyond the dining room table, there is a whole room to be decorated. Some spaces are large enough that they require more than just a table and chairs to fill it. This is where things can get tricky if you aren’t sure what want to add to that extra space. It can be used for storage, functionality, or just some simple decor.

The first question to ask is, what do you need? If storage is an issue, then some form of cabinetry is probably the way to go. Do you need extra seating? How about surface space for entertaining? Or do you just want to add to the ambiance and make the room feel more balanced?
