Sideboards and dressers are incredibly practical pieces of furniture, allowing you to store plates, glasses, cutlery and other tableware in your dining room, leaving your kitchen cupboards free for other things. Weve put together some hints and tips to help you to choose the perfect sideboard or dresser for your dining room. Measure up before shopping Before you start searching for your new furniture, decide where you would like to put it and measure up to see how much space you have available. Remember to make sure that you will have enough room to open the cupboards or drawers. If you are buying a wooden dresser or sideboard, make sure that you dont place it in direct sunlight, as this can cause fading, or next to a direct heat source, such as a fire or a radiator.
Firstly, you will need to decide whether you would like a traditional or a more contemporary style piece and ensure that whichever style you choose will suit the look of your room and fit in with the rest of your dining room furniture. Sideboards and dressers can sometimes be fairly bulky, so its important to choose one which doesnt make your dining room look smaller or darker. Although some people avoid buying wooden furniture for this reason, you can buy sideboards and dressers in many different types of wood, and you may find that furniture made from a light coloured wood looks perfect. Alternatively, if you want to make your dining room look warm and cozy, try choosing a sideboard or dresser made from a darker wood.
