Why We Love Credenzas
Beautiful on the outside, spaciously gifting storage possibilities on the inside--what's not to love about modern credenzas? These stately furnishings offer contemporary form and function to enhance plenty of living spaces in the home. Storage credenzas tackle the age-old problem of clutter, providing hidden storage or at times, even controlled chaos within well-placed nooks and cubbies. Perfect for an office setting as well as a dining area or bare wall, these contemporary credenzas elevate the home's ambiance while also improving its organization and flow. Credenzas tend to be an understated furniture option in most homes, not overdone and certainly not without their own list of benefits.
Where a Credenza Works Best
Imagine your home office having the perfect amount of subtly hidden storage. Enter the credenza. Contemporary credenzas add so much value for their modest footprint on your home's available square footage. These stunning pieces offer the bulk of their storage on the inside, but they also avail themselves with plenty of surface area for books, photo frames and other home accents. Beyond the office, modern credenzas work well in a dining room setting much like a buffet, offering concealed storage and a spacious surface to set out dinner or dessert. Other rooms and spaces can also benefit from a credenza, from the family room to the home's wide hallways.
A Credenza for Every Style
The beauty of the credenza is twofold in its versatile use and its attractive appearance. With so many contemporary credenzas available, it's easy to find just the right piece for different spaces in your home. Designs by BDI Furniture bring the modern charm of the brand's signature slatted style. Meanwhile, IonDesign's stunning wood grain storage credenzas work well alongside many other styles of décor, featuring plenty of drawers and cabinets for exceptional storage use. Styles by Gus Modern include long, sweeping surfaces with roomy storage below, marked by warm wood tones and occasional use of cool stainless steel accents.
Choosing the Best Credenzas
Finding the best modern credenzas may come down to the actual space available in your home. Take measurements and envision where you will set the credenza in relation to your existing furnishings and décor. In most cases, the height of the credenza will land around the same height as your office desk, perhaps around 30 to 32 inches high. The depth is typically less, coming about 18 to 22 inches from the wall in many styles. With all of this in mind, you can choose a credenza that offers the right storage options in a width that works with your floor plan.

Credenzas bring a lot of appeal to the look and feel of your home. If you enjoy the benefits of adding a credenza to your layout, consider the selection of console tables for added storage with a minimalist design and a tiny footprint. Buffets and sideboards offer another appealing way to keep your home organized and attractive, focusing on refining your dining areas or open wall spaces. And don't forget a media cabinet to keep all of your electronics organized and aligned within your home's design scheme.
