Sideboard. Thursday , October 19th , 2017 - 12:00:08 PM
Modern sideboards are typically purchased together with the dining set to achieve a perfect match but if your dining room is already furnished that does not mean that you cannot incorporate a sideboard. Finding one that comes in an identical design and colour as the existing furniture is virtually impossible, especially if you have it for quite some time already. There are, however, many sideboards which can easily be combined with just about every existing furniture regardless of its style and colour.
When not used for dining, the top of solid oak sideboards are ideal for the display of favourite ornaments or family photographs, or a vase of flowers. Choose the photograph frames wisely to either compliment the colour of the oak or else to contrast with it. The final item to look good on top of the solid oak sideboard in your dining room might be an elegant table lamp. Small sideboards in the hallway are usually called oak console tables. They look like a miniature sideboard and often have shelves, drawers and/or cupboards to hide away the detritus of everyday life like telephone directories, keys, gloves, pens and message pads. Fine furniture is not always used in a hall, but do remember that it is the first part of ones house that visitors see so it is important to make a good first impression.
Sideboards and dressers were extremely popular in the 1970s, but lost their appeal in later years. However, they have recently been making a come-back and are now seen as stylish, must-have pieces of furniture for the dining room. A dresser is a tall piece of furniture, which usually has a base which has cupboards or drawers, whilst the top section has shelves where you can display your crockery. A sideboard is a piece of furniture which has drawers, cupboards or compartments in which you can store your tableware, and has a flat surface like a table. However, you can also often buy a matching top unit to place on top of the sideboard, making it look like a dresser.
