Sideboard. Thursday , October 19th , 2017 - 12:10:23 PM
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.
Sideboards and dressers are incredibly practical pieces of furniture, allowing you to store plates, glasses, cutlery and other tableware in your dining room, leaving your kitchen cupboards free for other things. Weve put together some hints and tips to help you to choose the perfect sideboard or dresser for your dining room. Before you start searching for your new furniture, decide where you would like to put it and measure up to see how much space you have available. Remember to make sure that you will have enough room to open the cupboards or drawers. If you are buying a wooden dresser or sideboard, make sure that you dont place it in direct sunlight, as this can cause fading, or next to a direct heat source, such as a fire or a radiator.
