Other appliance like ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators are also commonly integrated in kitchen cabinets.

Dining room furniture is almost always separate from the kitchen furniture. Dining room furniture is usually the largest piece of furniture in the entire house and it can become the busiest room if there are lots of people in the family. Dining room furniture may consist of tables, chairs, sideboards, tabletops, or other types of surfaces. Table and chair sets are usually the most common choices for dining room furniture. Table and chair sets usually include a main table for dining and the side tables and seating around that table are for use when the table is not in use.

Buffet furniture is used for extra seating and can add a nice touch to any dining room. Buffet furniture generally consists of benches with surrounding cushions. Side tables are sometimes included with buffet furniture. Some buffets have a variety of ways in which food can be served. Wine racks are popular accessories for buffets. Another accessory for buffets is the dessert server.

Kitchen cabinets provide extra storage space for dishes, utensils, linens, and other kitchen items. Kitchen cabinets generally consist of a main door and several drawers on the side. The side doors can usually be opened to display the contents of the cabinet. Additional storage space is usually provided by the layout of kitchen cabinets. Most kitchen cabinets are traditionally made of wood, although they can be found in other materials, including metal and glass.
