Once the dishes were washed and dried, the oak sideboard would also be the storage place between meals. The structure of the sideboard was generally five to six-feet in length by eighteen inches deep by thirty-eight to forty-one inches tall. The height was configured to the waist height of the hostess, for the top of the sideboard had to coincide with her ability to carry platters of food to and from the furniture piece. The sideboard had cabinets in the main trunk of the piece with at least one and generally two drawers. The top had to be completely flat without any interruption of its surface as it was the main staging area for serving.
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.
Everything assumes that the only place for sideboards is in the dining room. The thing is, these furnishings would actually be great choices for putting in other rooms throughout your home as well. The reasoning behind why sideboards can be used throughout your entire home is the fact that they are an extremely versatile furnishing. They have both a pleasing look and can be used to store, display, and set down any number of items.
A sideboard that was once used exclusively in the dining room is now also being used in other rooms of the house. Sideboards look great in a living room or the family room. A contemporary sideboard, as long as you have the room, also looks fantastic in the entry way. You also have the option of purchasing the sideboard with other pieces of matching furniture.
