Built-in cabinet in dining room has been a part of our home, traditional or modern, since time immemorial. What were niches on the wall or heavy cabinet in our ancestor’s home has now taken the form of stylish built-in storage cabinets. The unconventional designs of side-storage in modern dining rooms by the modern designers have deviated a bit from conventional designs of the past. However, the essence is same, does the same storage job, and solves the same purpose as side-board. Above all as piece of furniture, it adorns the wall to make the dining room sophisticated and stylish. Have a look!    

1. Built-in side-board storage complementing the length of dining space

Complementing the length of the long dining room, a long storage built-in unit covers the side of the space making enough space to store the precious crockery. The top of the cabinet is kept clear to serve to be the side-board and dining buffet of the dining room.

2. An extended side-board with storage in open dining room
