So Why Solid Oak Sideboards? With a solid oak sideboard, unlike much cheaper made sideboards, they are built to last. Particleboard is commonly used in the manufacture of cheaper sideboards but will not withstand years of use like the tougher, much versatile oak version. Not only that but the oak version looks and feels much stronger, and is very much in Vogue today as they never really ever goes out of fashion, they also tend to add a feel of quality and luxury to a home and can often be a talking point when visitors come over. The sideboard was once a place to store the food, whilst waiting to be served, however they now appear in any room in the house whether that be bedroom or lounge, they can even be used to hold the entertainment system
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.
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.
When looking for the perfect piece to finish off your dining area, a piece of sideboard furniture is usually a great idea. In a small room like most dining areas, you need a piece that will be able to look great at the same time as it is serving other functions like storage or food service. Sideboards handle all of those tasks and definitely look good in the process. In some homes you will find an antique sideboard that has been passed down through many generations of the family. These family treasures are some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture you might ever see in your lifetime, and they still look as good and fill the same functional role as they did perhaps hundreds of years ago when they were first made.
The sideboard is an often overlooked piece of furniture, but it can be the perfect accent to just about any room in your home. An oak sideboard is the preferred choice because the wood itself is durable, while not too expensive. Furniture made of this type of wood is known to last decades, while still retaining its classic look and feel. A sideboard is essentially a piece of cabinetry-slash-shelving-slash-table that goes on the side of a room. While not a prominent piece that sticks out and demands you or your guests attention, it is just as elegant and room-making as any other type of furniture is expected to be - sometimes even more so. it is a good idea to shop around as much as possible to find out what you really need or are truly looking for.
