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.
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.
