The oak sideboard today is a highly sought after piece of furniture. It is still used as a convenient storage cabinet, but it is now found in several other rooms of the house other than the dining room. Some sideboards are being used as decorative furniture pieces in living rooms and even in the foyer of larger houses. Bedrooms are converting sideboards into dressing tables and the location of the bedroom TV set. The modern office now also features a sideboard as a convenient and handsome credenza to augment lack of storage not found in the desk.
Smaller kitchen spaces, remodeling, receiving antiques: all reasons for having hutches. Contemporary hutches are generally made in two pieces and then placed together prior to delivery or shipping, depending on the brand and prices. The prices will vary, but the most expensive models of dining room hutches are made of cherry or oak, and are one piece and very heavy where weight is concerned. If you purchase a model that requires assembly, it is advisable that help be sought due to the weight of the finished product. Although there are some models that come in simple pressboard that have a laminate covering, these are few and far between and are not as reliable as wood or metal models.
The design of eighteenth and nineteenth century houses usually did not include much space for storage. Because of that furniture makers were called upon to solve the problem of where to keep things when they were not being used everyday. The dining room generally had one of those solutions in the form of the oak sideboard. The sideboard of most northeastern homes was made of oak due to its plenteous supply throughout the woodlands from Maine to Pennsylvania.
Some contemporary sideboards can be purchased with shelving or cabinets to be able to store those things that are not used all the time. There are even contemporary sideboards that have wine racks or barware racks. In addition to the clean lines, contemporary sideboards may come in different shades of wood grain. There are those that can also be found in the black laminate style. Normally very simple handles are used. You will not see the intricate designs on the handles, but you will see straight or more modern shapes. The handles may be made from chrome or brushed metals to give it that modern feel.
