Firstly, you will need to decide whether you would like a traditional or a more contemporary style piece and ensure that whichever style you choose will suit the look of your room and fit in with the rest of your dining room furniture. Sideboards and dressers can sometimes be fairly bulky, so its important to choose one which doesnt make your dining room look smaller or darker. Although some people avoid buying wooden furniture for this reason, you can buy sideboards and dressers in many different types of wood, and you may find that furniture made from a light coloured wood looks perfect. Alternatively, if you want to make your dining room look warm and cozy, try choosing a sideboard or dresser made from a darker wood.
The Hepplewhite sideboard would have been used to store silver ware, dinnerware and other dining accoutrements. Modern Sideboards can be used in exactly the same way as the grand Hepplewhite and Chippendale (he also got in on the act) pieces. In the years from 1770, no dining room would have been considered complete without Sideboards. We may not have the grand dining style of the Hepplewhite and Chippendale era, but there is absolutely no reason why we shouldnt have one in modern homes today. 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.
Besides making sure that the sideboard fits perfectly into your dinning room and that it matches the existing furniture, you are also highly recommended to pay attention to quality of material and workmanship when looking for the perfect piece. Both quality material and high quality workmanship standards increase the price of the sideboard but a well made solid wood sideboard looks gives the dining room a touch of luxury and prestige. In addition, quality sideboards are more durable and resistant to wear and tear than the cheap and poorly versions. As a result, the investment in a quality sideboard pays off in the long term.

Oak sideboards, if you say the words quickly they mean very little but the reality of such an item of furniture is it can be invaluable in your dining space. Storage is at a premium in dining spaces and rooms, as we tend not to have a lot of furniture other than the table and chairs. However, good-sized oak sideboards can give you all of the storage space you need for your dining cutlery, dishes, candles, dining linens and any other items you use whilst entertaining. You not only have the storage inside the sideboard but space on top to put a music system, your iPod docking station or even a TV and DVD player.
