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.
DIY - If you don't find the right contemporary sideboards, you can purchase contemporary console tables that are unfinished so you can create your own custom solution. This is a great way to get affordable modern sideboards. As you likely know, contemporary sideboards aren't cheap. Refinish them yourself, and you've got quite a bargain. You can also get affordable contemporary console tables if you shop online. Often, you can get discounted or wholesale prices on modern sideboards.
For more vibrant options, turn to mango wood or sheesham, both of which are generally lighter, but offer interesting visual textures, with the tones. In a more modern decor, they would be ideal. With lighter woods, you also have the option of giving it a new look a few years down the line. While redecorating, they can be scrubbed down to form the right base for the varnish of your choice.
Roll Desk Styles - Some contemporary console tables come with a roll desk style, a charming way to hide bills, mail and other paperwork during a dinner or cocktail party. Everybody needs an unloading zone, but it's not like you want a landfill of papers sitting in your hallway. Contemporary sideboards with roll desk styles let you hide the mess elegantly.
