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.
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.
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.
Mirrors - Mirrors are also a nice complimentary feature for modern sideboards. This can be especially handy in bedrooms or foyers. Mirrors can contribute an feeling of open space to a room. Contemporary sideboards with mirrors work well next to the front door, as you can double check your hair or makeup as you walk out of the house. Convenient Location - The beauty of contemporary console tables is that they can be used anywhere since they hardly take up any space. Some people even place them behind sofas, as the small space makes this convenient. This way, you can use modern sideboards to hold lights or decorations anywhere, since they fit easily into any location.
