We have all seen some period dramas where a group of people are sitting in a grand dining room at a heavily laden table being served food from the sideboard. Whilst we may not have the servants or the grand dining rooms of yesteryears, we do still dine and need storage space for our cutlery and china. Therefore, Sideboards are pieces of history we can have in our homes today. Versatile and beautiful, they are ideal pieces of furniture for living rooms, dining rooms or indeed kitchens.
Make sure that your new sideboard or dresser is practical as well as beautiful. Think about what you want to be able to store in it and make sure that choose one with enough space for your tableware. Do you want to be able to display your crockery or glassware, or would you rather hide it away inside of the unit? Would storing your tableware be easier if the sideboard or dresser had adjustable shelves? There are many different styles of sideboard and dresser on the market, and its important to make sure that you choose one that suits your dining room, particularly as a sideboard or dresser is likely to be a real focal point in the room.
The sideboard would be the place where food would be placed before the meal. The hostess would serve each item of the menu from the sideboard. The dining table would only hold the plates, cups, and other eating utensils along with the centerpiece only. At the end of the meal the sideboard would be the staging area for any desserts and cordials. Once the dishes were washed and dried, the oak sideboard would also be the storage place between meals. The structure of the sideboard was generally five to six-feet in length by eighteen inches deep by thirty-eight to forty-one inches tall. The height was configured to the waist height of the hostess, for the top of the sideboard had to coincide with her ability to carry platters of food to and from the furniture piece.
Oak sideboards also come in such a variety of sizes and styles that you are sure to find something to suit your room and the dimensions of the space you have. There is such a variety of styles from the ultra modern and boxy to the more ornate and specialist, so something will catch your eye when you start looking. What you will find in many peoples homes is they dont just limit the sideboard to the dining space, I have seen them used for storage under stairs and in lounges. Sideboards are very versatile pieces of furniture because of the range of styles they come in. Some of the more rustic styles of Oak sideboards are very popular because of the look they have and the storage space they offer.
