The Tudor furniture and styles are the final period of style within the medieval period between 1485–1603.

At this time, King Henry VII held the throne in 1485.  Many believe that this marked the end of the Middle Ages in Britain and the beginning of the English Renaissance. The Tudor era continues the reign of King Henry VIII and finally comes to an end in 1558, with the crowning of Queen Elizabeth I.

Tudor furniture of the sixteenth century England was made of oak, was imposing, heavy and strong.  This style of furniture was often decorated with elaborate fabrics such as tapestries and embroidery. Early Tudor furniture can look identical to medieval furniture and Gothic furniture which came before it.   Poor people though this time, had very little furniture.  Wealthy people didn’t have much furniture either.  Often times, wealthy individuals often only had the very basic of furniture consisting of beds, benches, stools, tables, and chests.  Of all the furniture pieces, the bench was used to sit at a dinner table, and often chairs were reserved for the owner of the home.

Bring Together Your Dining Room with Style and Storage

Sideboard, Buffet and Dining Room Storage

The dining room is the place where your family gathers, enjoy food and have fun. Dining rooms are well used, and often lacks extra storage. Here are some tips that will help you to create storage along with style in your dining room.

Create A Focal Point With Dishes:

Dining room can look great even with the simple pieces of furniture. Place the shelf on the top of the buffet or serving surface.  Shelves, buffets, and sideboards can store extra cutlery and dishware. Invest in dishware that you can use for guests, but also use to display on your walls.

Add Functional Baskets In Your Dining Room:

If you want to make your dining room child friendly use the functional baskets in the area. Place the baskets on a sideboard, or within a buffet to hold your desired cutlery.  Baskets are easy for kids to handle as well.  If you have small kids in the house, baskets can be a practical choice.  Kids can easily get the dishes and glasses placed in the basket without the danger of breaking them. Use the baskets as decorative accents too by embellishing them with paint that matches existing painted furniture in the room.  Often baskets in their raw form can add a lot of vintage element into the room.  Consider adding a vintage touch by stenciling French numbers or old world insignia on them.

Built in storage:

The built in storage is the good option for small dining rooms. Keep all the dishware and glassware in the built in cabinetry and decorate the door of the cabinets with beautiful paintings, canvas printings and printed photos. The addition of these artistic items will give style to your dining room. Inside the cabinets install shelves and drawers to get rid of all the items scattered on your kitchen’s countertops. The built in cabinets occupy less space and looks beautiful.

Stylish and Efficient Shelving:

The best storage idea for the small spaces is the display shelves. They are easy to install and can grab many items for storage and for decorative purposes.  The wall mounted cabinets are great because they keep the heavy furniture off the floor making the room appear larger and open. Narrow spaces, coupled with narrow shelving can make your room appear big and spacious.

Use the bookshelves for multifunction dining:

The bookshelves can be a fantastic choice for dining rooms.  You can create multifunctional space for your entire family. Line the bookcases with plates, display bowls, picture frames, and decorate elements that work with your overall theme.  This will be pleasant décor and storage for the dining room.

This is how you can bring the style and storage in high traffic room in your home.

Gustav Stickley (March 9, 1858 – April 21, 1942) was a furniture manufacturer and design leader for the American Craftsman style, an extension of the British Arts and Crafts movement In America. His furniture was massive and often featured hammered metal hardware, dyed leather, canvas, terry cloth and other upholstery materials complemented the designs. In the 1900’s Stickley’s furniture evolved from the solid furniture he was known for, to lighter shapes. It is particularly his early furniture, produced between 1901 and 1904 that is considered rare and ultra collectible. In 1988, Barbra Streisand paid $363,000 for a Stickley sideboard from Craftsman Farms
