It was round about the 1770s that Sideboards first started appearing in Britain. The earliest type was called slab tables. These early Sideboards often had marble tops as they were used not only to serve food and drink, but also prepare and cut food. The slab tables were no more than a top with legs and there was no storage on them. In 1788, the famous cabinetmaker Hepplewhite showed a sideboard in his illustrated style guide. Hepplewhites piece had moved away from the slab table as it had the addition of storage space.
In addition to making the dining room look less empty, sideboards create an inviting atmosphere which in turn makes everyone at the table feel more relaxed. They are not, however, just an aesthetically appealing addition but very practical too. Sideboards are typically used to keep the tableware at hand which helps save space in kitchen cabinets as well as the kitchen itself, enabling the "chef" to focus exclusively on cooking. In addition, a sideboard in the dining area reduces the risk of burnt food and other cooking accidents because the "chef" is not disturbed by a family member who is in charge for setting the table.
Drawers and Cupboards - Apart from being available in a variety of different sizes, Oak Sideboards also come with differing numbers of cupboards and drawers. Many of the medium sideboards are supplied with 2 cupboards and two drawers whilst the larger sideboards often have 3 cupboards and 3 drawers. But there are a great number of choices on the market to match what you are looking for, so if you need more cupboards and less drawers or more drawers and fewer cupboards have a good look around, since there is probably a solid oak sideboard readily available to fulfill your requirements.
The beauty of natural wood is something we all should have in our homes and with oak, you get just that. Something can be beautiful to look at and be very practical to have, and oak sideboards are certainly that rare combination. If you want the full entertaining dining experience then a matching table, chairs and sideboard are a must. For those wine connoisseurs out there you can even get sideboards with built in wine racks, how cool would that look and how impressed would your guests be! You dont have to match your table to your sideboard or vice versa as mixing and matching styles and colours of wood can work equally well.
