Sara Mullen. Sideboards. February 12th , 2018.
One popular style that can be considered an antique, but can also suit modern tastes, is that of the mission oak sideboard. Mission furniture was mostly made with white oak that was stained with ammonia fumes, and this plus the craftsman designs yielded a product with sensible lines and an elegant look. These are dark without being too dark, and can potentially be used both for rooms that look more serious as well as ones which are more casual. This is one design where solid oak was the rule, though it may take a bit of searching to find mission sideboards for which this is still true.
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.
The beauty of natural wood is something we all should have in our homes and with oak, you get just that. Something can be beautiful to look at and be very practical to have, and oak sideboards are certainly that rare combination. If you want the full entertaining dining experience then a matching table, chairs and sideboard are a must. For those wine connoisseurs out there you can even get sideboards with built in wine racks, how cool would that look and how impressed would your guests be! You dont have to match your table to your sideboard or vice versa as mixing and matching styles and colours of wood can work equally well.
The popular sideboard examples include the likes of contemporary lacquered sideboard MAX Paolo Piva, contemporary lacquered sideboard LINK by Carlo Colombo, Contemporary Lacquered sideboard ALL by Bartoli and many others. They all have amazing features which are meant to accommodate customers needs. Some are designed elegantly while others inherit a traditional look which blends quite well. So whether you are attracted to the traditional look or the modern look, dont worry because your needs will be met by the available sideboards in the market.
Sideboards were always part of dining in the grand Victorian houses, and if you want to dine with that kind of style then there are some reproduction pieces that will serve you well. Oak sideboards offer you plenty of storage options and there are some that have drawers and cupboard space so you have a place to store everything. You may have an idea that oak will be difficult to care for and look after or that it only comes in its natural shade, but you would be wrong. Oak sideboards come in so many different hues from the darkest almost ebony to the lightest bleached look. Oak as a wood is very easy to care for. It will take a lot of hard knocks and plenty of everyday wear and tear.
