If Jeopardy had a furniture category, for “Most Functional Furniture Piece” we would answer, “What is ‘a sideboard?’” Any well-organized homeowner will agree that a sideboard is a necessary addition to your dining and living areas. Sideboards combine style and function to give your room a huge – but elegant – storage container that can command any room with its finish and design.Keep silverware, fancy napkins and napkin rings in your sideboard’s drawers. Use the piece’s spacious cabinets to stack plates and bowls and store table runners or tablecloths. Sideboards can also protect fragile china safe from rambunctious kids or pets. Take advantage of your sideboard’s long and wide surface. Set paintings, candles, pictures and flower vases on top to add your personality to the piece. For those hectic times of year when family and friends gather in your dining room for big meals, use the expansive surface to host platters of your favorite holiday meals and create an assembly line. Having trouble narrowing down your choices? Don’t sweat it. We compared drawer-to-cabinet ratio, artistic appeal and storage capability to compile our favorite sideboards. Add one of these 12 to your cottage-style dining and living spaces right now.
