However, modern dining rooms will also benefit from the addition of some storage furniture that is suited to the function of the room. Sideboards are great for stowing away your dinner service and cutlery, of course, but they are also useful for your other essential items. Table cloths, serving bowls, napkins and glassware all need a home. The ideal place to store these things is in a sideboard. But don’t make your modern room appear old fashioned by opting for a traditional sideboard. There are plenty of contemporary designs that update the classic look.
