If there’s an item that serves more than one practical uses of the house, that item would be a dining room buffet. The console offers you space for storage, excellent decorative and a perfect place for cute ornaments above it as well.
When placed in a dining room, a buffet can also be used to put off-duty cutlery. However, you can use more than that to make your dining table an extraordinary item in your dining space. To make the most of it, here are four amazing ideas for you.
1. Table Lamps and Painting
Even if your buffet offers a unique and astonishing design, it is always such a waste to leave it empty. One way to create a decorative spot is by placing two table lamps on each side of the sideboards. Pick lightings with pretty lampshades. Then, between the two fixtures lean a frameless contemporary painting. You can also add two chairs on the side of the buffet and place cushions which are matching with the lampshades.
Pick a theme to define your style. Coastal blue can be a good one.
Dark tones can add drama to the space, especially when it’s illuminated. You can create a dramatic look by pairing the dark painting frame with dark lampshades.
For a modern and luxurious feel, try minimalist black and white with a touch of gold.
2. Wide Mirrors and Buffet Lamps
For a console with expensive-looking design, the best way to elevate the elegance is by placing luxury items as well. Place large-scale mirrors with gold brass frames along with classic, classy table lamps in brass finishes. For a little contrast of the gold domination, place herbs in a tall transparent vase.
Decorating with mirrors can add dimension that makes the room will feel more spacious and airy.
The trick really helps for a narrow space.
To improve the style, you can install sconces instead of placing table lamps.
Or, use white candles to create a romantic ambiance.
3. Small Portraits and Medium Mirrors
Is it weird to hang multiple photos above the dining room buffet? Since decorating the console has no exact limitation, then as long as the decoration pleases your eyes, it will be a great deal. To give you the picture of it, hang several small black-and-white portraits in a different size. Combine them with a vintage mirror with matching borders.
You can create a gallery wall out of your family portraits to make your dining feel more entertaining and nostalgic.
Use round mirror to soften the look.
It really depends on the available space and the proportion you want to form. If you don’t want to disturb the symmetry and balance of the buffet area, the mirror can go on the other wall.
4. Vintage Wall Clock and Small Greeneries
The vintage wall clock will look great with a rustic buffet. Hang a classic wall clock featuring Roman numerals. Then, place some pretty small flower ornaments. If you’re into artificial flowers, it is indeed a brilliant idea to put small living plants above your sideboard.
If you have a vintage side table, you can create this classic look by painting the table gray and refresh it by adding some greenery.

Explore the blank space above your dining room buffet and hollow sight over it. With a little touch or artistic items, cute small ornaments, statement-making mirror, or classic pieces, turn your ordinary console into something extraordinary.
