When choosing china cabinets and buffets for your dining room, make sure you understand the room available to you. Many people find it difficult to visualize how a piece of showroom furniture will fit into their home, and often overestimate the size of their room. You can avoid this by measuring the dimensions and noting what is still available and already used by other furniture. Even better would be to use an online room planner - you will find that many furniture stores offer a room planner on their website. You can then insert your room dimensions, and place scaled thumbnails of the furniture into the planner to see how it all fits. This is just as important for china cabinets and buffets as it is for any other type of home furniture.
Think about the rooms style when deciding how to best display china in a cabinet. If your china is antique Victorian and your room décor is modern, add a few strategic and low-key Victorian elements to help the styles blend together in an eclectic way. With just a little thought and planning, an attractive display china cabinet is easy for most UK homeowners to accomplish.

Have a plan and dont overcrowd the display. It may sound unusual, but displaying items in odd numbers (3, 5, 7, etc) on shelves makes for a more attractive display. For example, you might want to place 2 large items like a soup tureen with lid and serving platter alone on a shelf. Be sure to leave plenty of space around all items on the shelves on most china display cabinets. Be sure the display cabinet is balanced. A good strategy is to place the largest item on the center of a shelf and then group smaller items to either side. For example, if you put a large platter in the center of a shelf, place dinner plates next to it. Then place smaller salad plates next to the dinner plates. This gives your display an attractive and balanced look.
Before shopping for china cabinet furniture, be sure to address a few important points. Decor is one of these important points and must be addressed before putting your money down on such items. So, before you do anything else, you must first take into account the furniture that is already being used in your dining room. In case your dining table and chairs are of a particular style, then you will want to pick the china cabinet furniture that blends in well with the overall decor, though not necessarily with the dining table and its chairs.
