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.
A sideboard is commonly used in a dining room. It is often a narrower piece of furniture that is placed along the wall. Its original purpose was to provide a place for serving food. Today we still see many sideboards in dining rooms. It is a great place to be able to set up a small beverage station or set out for entertaining purposes. Many people also use their sideboards to highlight some of their decorative pieces.
