Araceli Mercer. Sideboards. February 12th , 2018.
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.
Sideboards are usually long and slim, and use a minimal amount of floor space, making it easy to fit them in anywhere! The table tops are ideal for you to place your food before serving, or can act as your bar counter or buffet table when you have social engagements! It can also serve as a place to display your favorite photographs, or aesthetically place a few decorative vases and themed knick knacks. With the ample storage space underneath, a plethora of choices are made available for you to store your crockery and china in the cabinets; silverware and linen in the draws, or perhaps a few cookbooks in the shelves. You even place your wine in the wine racks. The options are endless!
