Why Sideboards Are Great and How to Style Them

Bespoke luxury kitchens now make a feature of the antique sideboard, as cabinet makers incorporate a fresh and modern twist in their designs.

Although traditionally placed in the dining room, the modern day sideboard is great when used in the family kitchen. Below we explore five great ways to style your sideboard.

Keep it simple

If your kitchen is styled in a minimalist Scandinavian way, then this should be reflected in the way you style your sideboard. Keep it simple by only displaying five items or less, such as a simple vase, photographs and a cookery book.

Serve your buffet

A sideboard provides the perfect place on which to serve drinks and snacks to any guests when eating in your kitchen. You can display your drinks and arrange those nibbles on decorative plates, alongside napkins and cutlery.

Add lamps

If you have a kitchen diner and relax in there during the evenings, then why not place two decorative lamps either end of the sideboard? Not only will they look aesthetically pleasing, but they will cast a beautiful soft glow when the day grows dark.

Place shelving above

If you have a lot of cookery books then why not showcase them on and above your sideboard, alongside your garden herbs. Place shelving that is of a similar colour and material directly above the sideboard to create functional, yet attractive bookshelves to store all those cookery books.

Display your coffee

Are you a coffee lover? If yes, then the sideboard can display your ground coffees, coffee cups, coffee maker and other coffee-related accessories. It can be your very own personalised coffee station.
