Lacey Love. Sideboards. February 12th , 2018.
Oak sideboards, if you say the words quickly they mean very little but the reality of such an item of furniture is it can be invaluable in your dining space. Storage is at a premium in dining spaces and rooms, as we tend not to have a lot of furniture other than the table and chairs. However, good-sized oak sideboards can give you all of the storage space you need for your dining cutlery, dishes, candles, dining linens and any other items you use whilst entertaining. You not only have the storage inside the sideboard but space on top to put a music system, your iPod docking station or even a TV and DVD player.
Make sure its practical Make sure that your new sideboard or dresser is practical as well as beautiful. Think about what you want to be able to store in it and make sure that choose one with enough space for your tableware. Do you want to be able to display your crockery or glassware, or would you rather hide it away inside of the unit? Would storing your tableware be easier if the sideboard or dresser had adjustable shelves? Choose the right style There are many different styles of sideboard and dresser on the market, and its important to make sure that you choose one that suits your dining room, particularly as a sideboard or dresser is likely to be a real focal point in the room.
Sideboards were revolutionary in the décor of a dining room. With its elegant simplicity and dynamic appearance, sideboards bring in an air of sophistication into your dining area. Its tasteful, yet practical presence still makes it a favored choice for people who are looking to add in some character to their dining room. Standing a little higher than a dining table, sideboards typically have a flat display top surface supported by a base that can come with options like cabinets, shelves, draws or wine racks. Do Sideboards Make Sense? Sideboards are one of the most useful furnishings you can invest in, and for good reason!
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.
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.
