Sideboards—also known as a buffet or credenza—are a piece of furniture most typically found in dining rooms and eat-in kitchens. Before fitted cabinets were a standard part of the modern kitchen , sideboards were used to store dishes as well as display food and drink.

The traditional dining room sideboard is a freestanding cabinet that sits along one wall , low to the ground , often with short legs and cabinets that reach to the floor. Some models come with a mixture of cabinets with doors and dressers , which may be deep or shallow depending upon their intended function. Sideboards may include storage space specifically dedicated to storing china , cups , glasses , bottles of wine and decanters , table linens , placemats and napkins. When shopping online for one , it’s important to consider the overall storage you’ll have access to and what you intend to use your sideboard for. Though the shape and function of the sideboard is especially adept at helping a dining room feel like a dining room , they serve an equal number of other functions just as well. The bit of privacy that the hidden storage offers , combined with the large surface area for display has helped transform the versatile sideboard into a dresser in the bedroom , a tv cabinet in the living room , or a minibar.
The amount of storage space within the sideboard should also be considered against the size of the room. Sideboards are made to stand out within a space—choosing one that plays against the style of the rest of the room is a contemporary trend that can help personalise your home—so it’s also important to consider the dimensions of the room and how the sideboard will fit within it. Don’t choose a small two-door sideboard if it will be engulfed by a massive dining room. Likewise , it’s better to avoid a four-door sideboard if your dining room is on the smaller side. There are no design rules for how you must use your sideboard. Use the display space to store a buffet at a party or to hold hot dishes when your dining table is filled to capacity with guests. If you prefer , use the top of the sideboard to display knick knacks and cherished items. Consider adding a beautiful tray or stackable trinket boxes to group small items together and keep the sideboard from looking messy. A mix of low and tall elements adds visual interest as well , for example a plant , a lamp , or a stack of pretty books.
