We know the bedroom and the living room can often be filled with things that shouldn’t be placed there, but we may forget another part of the home that can experience the same dilemma: the dining room. Here are things you probably have there that you should put back where they belong, or get rid of permanently.

Rarely-used dishes

It’s easy to want to hang on to as much serve ware as we can, because we want to be prepared for occasions when we would need to prepare a lot of food for large numbers of people. However, if you have plenty of dishes and platters inside your home, it is inevitable that there are some you never use at all. Better get rid of them, and just hang on to those pieces you actually use.

Outdated or unused table décor

Do you have some pieces at home that you always intended to use to spruce up your dining table, but have forgotten about and just left to collect dust somewhere else? You may have inherited some of these items, but if you’re not really planning on using them, or if they’re too outdated to fit into your home, don’t hesitate to get rid of them.

Extra tablecloths

Just like table décor, you may also have extra tablecloths stored in a cabinet somewhere that have never seen the light of day, because you never got to use them. It’s likely that these pieces won’t ever be used, so it would be better to donate them instead.

Fancy china

If you haven't used your fancy china since you got married, then these items might be sitting idly in a glass cabinet, taking up space. Why not sell them? Who knows, you might get some good money out of it!

Things you use for work


If you don’t have a home office, you probably turn your dining table into a makeshift desk every now and then. While this is perfectly fine, don’t forget to take your laptop, papers, pens, and other supplies after you’re done working and put them back where they belong. You’ll be doing yourself a favour by ridding your dining area of things that shouldn’t actually be left there.
