Sideboards. Monday , February 12th , 2018 - 14:52:44 PM
Dont just think of dining rooms when you think of sideboards. You can pretty much use them in any room. They give you a large amount of storage space, which most of us need, yet they look great. A sideboard can be a focal point in your room. You could display pieces of crystal or use it to have a beautiful vase of flowers to brighten up your room. Therefore, you get style, and somewhere to put all those bits and bobs you have lying around that need storing. Style wise there is a huge amount to choose from. If you need to match to other furniture you have, then there are sideboards in a range of wood finishes. As stand alone pieces of furniture, sideboards are perfect. There are some petite ones available if space is at a premium. If however you have a large room, you can indulge in a large one with drawers and three doors. sideboards can be an investment piece of furniture that you will enjoy for many years.
It was round about the 1770s that Sideboards first started appearing in Britain. The earliest type was called slab tables. These early Sideboards often had marble tops as they were used not only to serve food and drink, but also prepare and cut food. The slab tables were no more than a top with legs and there was no storage on them. In 1788, the famous cabinetmaker Hepplewhite showed a sideboard in his illustrated style guide. Hepplewhites piece had moved away from the slab table as it had the addition of storage space.
In addition to making the dining room look less empty, sideboards create an inviting atmosphere which in turn makes everyone at the table feel more relaxed. They are not, however, just an aesthetically appealing addition but very practical too. Sideboards are typically used to keep the tableware at hand which helps save space in kitchen cabinets as well as the kitchen itself, enabling the "chef" to focus exclusively on cooking. In addition, a sideboard in the dining area reduces the risk of burnt food and other cooking accidents because the "chef" is not disturbed by a family member who is in charge for setting the table. 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.
