Contemporary buffets are a must in a dining room or lounge/diner for storing a dinner service and silverware. Some have drop-down doors that serve as a work surface for holding dishes or as a bar for preparing drinks. So today we are going to talk about how to choose the perfect Buffet Design for your modern dining room. Stay tuned!
Once you decide how many you need, be practical and measure the space they will fit in. Measure the height, width, and depth. Shop armed with the facts!
Next, choose the appropriate sized for your buffet. They are available with two, three, four and even five or six doors. The largest make a dramatic addition to any contemporary dining room. Low buffets make a contemporary design statement but are also practical for homes with low or slanted ceilings.
Do you need buffets with a display, others without? Open shelving or glass doors? Storage goods with glass doors often have optional illuminated display shelving. Consider also the option of pull-down or lockable doors. Doors in contrasting materials and decorative handles maximize design impact.
Buffets with drawers are often useful in the breakfast or dining room for storing cutlery, placemats, and napkins.
When it comes to design, it’s a matter of personal taste. Contemporary buffets can make a bold design statement or complement the furniture you already have. If in doubt, go with neutral colors or natural materials. When deciding on materials, consider where the piece will be, how often it will be used, what it will store and therefore how durable it needs to be.
