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.
An antique oak sideboard is quite a find. Good construction of the nineteenth century sideboard has permitted the opportunity of collecting these excellent pieces of furniture. They are now found from coast-to-coast among thousands of antique dealers. Furniture makers are still making the oak sideboard. It is a popular selling piece among many of the great furniture houses in our country. Some factories are now specializing in reproduction furniture and can provide you with style choices from early American, Victorian, and European designs.
When redesigning your kitchen and dining area, using dining room hutches will free up space in the kitchen and adds another cabinet to the dining area. The hutch area is used to store small cups, dishes or other knick knacks, while the buffet area is used for display or storage for others to see. The contemporary types sold today incorporate a buffet, sideboard and cabinets into one unit for ease of use. These hutches are not only used in the dining room, as many are made with sideboards for cutting or preparing food in the kitchen.
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.
