How To Style Cabinets & Consoles

Your cabinets and consoles deserve a moment to shine - upgrade your empty shelves into statement pieces in no time. In a few easy steps, we’ll walk you through how to style your favorite storage. First step with any styling project is to always start with a blank slate. Begin by removing any existing pieces and setting them aside to create a blank canvas. Now without any distractions, visualize the space you want to create and allow inspiration to lead the way. Follow along to see our tips and tricks on turning your dining room cabinets, large living room consoles, and small bedroom cabinets into artistic decor.

How to Style Cabinets for the Dining Room 

1. Ground the Look

Anchor your shelves and start the largest pieces first. Choose artwork, vases, or vessels like the Coastal Living Wood Bowl that you really want to draw the eye to in order to create instant focal points you love.

2. Display Your Favorite Kitchenware & Decor
Next, fill your shelves with glassware and plateware that make your heart sing. Choosing dishware that compliment each other will help you create a cohesive look. Don’t be afraid of breaking up your selection and displaying the same piece twice. Add in unique decor pieces like the Knotted Marble Decor or Painted Lady Vase to create contrast and mix things up.

3. Add Fresh Blooms and Fruit 
A great way to add a pop of color to your creation and liven up your space is to add fresh blooms and fruits to your vessels!

How to Style a Large Console Table

1. Set the Foundation 

Begin by collecting your favorite artwork, books, and decor. Layer and stack the main pieces to ground your collection and make sure your favorite pieces are in full view.

2. Use the Rules of Three to Mix in Small Pieces 

Groupings of items in odd numbers is the most visually appealing, especially when you pair with varying heights, textures, and color. Place a few pieces like vases, planters, and candles in groups of three and then add visually interesting toppers like beads or dried florals. Examples of modern pieces to style with are the Creative Muse Ceramic Vase and the Wooded Beaded Garland

3. Refine & Refresh for Maximum Inspiration

Once all the decor is set, don’t be afraid to readjust placement and adding finishing touches until you feel inspired every time you look at it. It may take a few days to really make sure you are enjoying the placements. Refresh for each season to keep the energy flowing. 

How to Style a Small Cabinet

1. Start with the Wall 

Have fun with the space around your cabinet and play around with hanging wall art to add visual interest. Choosing pieces with simple designs and colors that fit with your space. When styling a small cabinet, you don’t have much room to play with so utilizing the walls to display pieces is the best place to start.

2. Add Small Touches of Color & Minimal Decor

Simplicity is best when it comes to a smaller cabinet. Avoid crowding the space by choosing 2-3 standout items. Go with pieces like the Small Arch Marble Decor or the Breathe In Ceramic Vase to create a modern minimal look. Add small pops of color with plants and fresh flowers in contrasting colors to elevate the look.

3. Organize Inside

Even though no one else will be able to see, try to avoid stuffing clutter and anything unwanted into the cabinet. Trust us, the temptation will be there. You will feel much better if you know that when you open the cabinet door, you will be greeted with organized shelves and can find exactly what you’re looking for (rather than stuff tumbling out of it at your feet).
