HOW TO | STYLE A CREDENZA

Credenza’s are a great piece of furniture to display and organize your things. Sometimes referred to as a sideboard cupboard—this item is becoming increasing popular in home decor. I absolutely love that these are multi-functional pieces. Not only are people using them in their dining rooms, they are being used in office spaces, foyers, and even living rooms as tv stands. They are perfect for storage, organization, and a great way to show off your styling skills. Below I will be walking you through 4 steps on How To Style a Credenza.

STEP ONE

start fresh—clear everything off the credenza


STEP TWO

This is the most important part—HANG YOUR ART! Because the above credenza is on an empty wall, I thought it would best to hang the art. (styling tip: You can simply layer 2 or 3 different sizes on the top of a credenza as well. Just lean against the wall and you are good to go)

STEP THREE

Here is where you can added a little contrast. Insert a lamp and add more elements. Because this credenza is located beside the kitchen, We added elements like drinking glasses, barware, and spirits.

STEP FOUR

With all of the elements listed above, this should create a roller coaster effect. I like to use the term roller coaster because the elements should not be the same height. The varying heights pulls everything together, which make a person eyes dance around to see each element being displayed. (styling tip: if everything was the same height, it will look very basic and boring). See below for a more detailed step by step video.

Do you have a credenza? Where are you using it at? If not, do you plan on using one in the future. Let me know, in the comments below.
