Minimalistic style that used to be popular only until recently is ideal for smaller dining rooms because it helps save space, creates an illusion of larger space than it really is and is easily combined with modern furniture. However, many home owners have also discovered that it can be very impractical and sort of cold. This may not be as noticeable in small-sized dining rooms which have little space for anything other than a table and a few chairs but it is obvious in generous-sized rooms as it can create an appearance of emptiness and make the room look kind of incomplete.
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.
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.
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.
