Lacey Love. Sideboards. February 13th , 2018.
Since contemporary dining rooms typically have a clean, modern and sort of minimalistic look, sideboards are not seen often in modern homes. They remain a standard feature of traditional dining rooms as they emphasise the overall traditional style and give the dining area a touch of warmth which in turn creates a unique atmosphere. But in the recent years, sideboards are getting increasingly sought after for contemporary dining rooms as well. Renewed interest in sideboards can partly be explained with the change in dining room furniture trends which put a greater emphasis on functionality. Minimalistic style that used to be popular only until recently is ideal for smaller dining rooms because it helps save space, creates an illusion of larger space than it really is and is easily combined with modern furniture. However, many home owners have also discovered that it can be very impractical and sort of cold. This may not be as noticeable in small-sized dining rooms which have little space for anything other than a table and a few chairs but it is obvious in generous-sized rooms as it can create an appearance of emptiness and make the room look kind of incomplete.
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.
The size of the sideboard is an important consideration. Do not get a large sideboard if you do not have enough space in the house for it. You should find a sideboard that is not too big or too small. Getting the right sized sideboard will not make your room look too spacious or too crowded. There are some sideboards which are long and slender while there are others which are short and broad. Get the sideboard which will add to your rooms aesthetic value. Many furniture stores sell different kinds of sideboards at different prices.
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. Measure up before shopping 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.
Not only are sideboards functional, but also add a great decorative touch to your dining room. Sideboards come in a variety of styles and designs to suit every kind of taste and budget. For those who prefer a formal setting, finely styled antique and traditional looking sideboards are a perfect choice. Those who prefer a more contemporary style can select from range of sideboards that are combined with different elements such as wood, wicker, metal, steel, or even glass. These types of sideboards can blend in beautifully with any kind of décor, or setting. No matter what style or design you choose, sideboards have a timeless appeal, and can enhance the ambiance of any dining space! What Should You Consider Before Buying Sideboards? As sideboards come in a variety of designs, you need to first determine the purpose of the sideboard and what you would like to use it for. Would you like a place to store your table linen or cutlery? Or perhaps youd prefer a sideboard with a wine rack? Your answer can help you choose the right style and design of a beautiful sideboard that can make a style statement in your dining space.
