Sideboard

The sideboard is one of the most common pieces of furniture in the living room and dining room. A cupboard, also known as a "mobile buffet," is a piece of furniture that has historically been found in a kitchen or dining room and has been a place where crockery and cutlery have traditionally been kept. A versatile furniture accessory par excellence, the sideboard today is suitable for a wide variety of applications, proposing itself as a cabinet for many environments. A modern sideboard is not only a multifunctional complement, it is a piece of furniture that contributes to the aesthetic reflection of the interior design. With clean lines, new materials and bold designs, traditional kitchen chests of drawers have been properly interpreted in a contemporary style, becoming a true style statement of the environments in which they are placed.

Which sideboard best suits your needs

< p> A sideboard has a low structure that unfolds in length, unlike a sideboard which unfolds in height instead. Therefore, it is imperative to estimate the available space and especially the length of the sideboard you want to buy. If the height of the sideboard is always less than one meter, the length is very variable: there are cupboards with two, three, four or even six wings. Smaller sideboards are perfect for bedrooms, under stairs or in confined spaces, especially the lower ones are practical for homes with low or sloped ceilings. The sideboard can be placed directly on the floor or on the feet. On the other hand, suspended cupboards give the effect of lightness and are not too bulky because they are not too thick. The cupboards can be configured in endless combinations, depending on the purpose and type of stored items. Sideboards with doors or drawers are very practical: first, they protect the interior from dust; second, they hide the contents from view, especially if the items are stored in a disordered manner. If you have a lot of free space, you can choose a chest of drawers with hinged doors: this type of furniture is suitable for storing many items and keeping your home tidy. In this case, it is necessary to take into account the size of the door that must open without difficulty. Units with sliding doors solve space problems, but unlike hinged doors, they cannot be opened at the same time. For storing small items, cutlery, tablecloths and even documents, you can think of a sideboard with drawers. The latter also work well in studios or offices for the organization of stationery. A chest of drawers without drawers and with large interior compartments is ideal for storing taller items such as bottles or vases. Large compartments with internal shelves are suitable for storing toys, books, CD / DVD holders and for storing AV systems for the TV. Accordingly, in recent years, a chest of drawers with built-in speakers for listening to good music or watching a movie has been launched on the market: the TV in this case will find a place either on the same floor in the kitchen chest of drawers or on the wall. Sideboard speakers can be directly connected to smartphones and can be managed via the app.

Modern sideboard: universal and multifunctional furniture

Cupboards have occupied an important place in the home for hundreds of years and have become a practical solution for storage next to trunks and kitchen cabinets. Some units are equipped with multiple doors and drawers to maximize storage and maintenance potential. The top of a sideboard is useful in such cases for temporarily arranging dishes or bottles of wine during dinner, especially if there are guests and the table surface is full. With the advancement of home technology in recent years and the birth of modular and custom-made kitchens with plenty of storage space, the sideboard has lost its original function as a dining table. Nowadays, however, a sideboard remains the most appropriate solution to keep clutter to a minimum: in fact, it can store a wide variety of items that are not just limited to dishes, glasses and household items. In the living room, a sideboard with hinged doors is perfect for storing drinks, toys and books. Tilt & Turn ™ desks are ideal for storing all kinds of multimedia systems to operate your TV. The upper level of the sideboard is perfect for displaying photographs and family souvenirs and can be decorated with elegant table lamps. What's more, dresser tops are often used as coasters for books, hats, and keys, and when placed near the entrance to your home, they almost act like coin trays. In an office or home study, sideboards can hold stationery, office supplies and electronics, and provide a working surface for printers and document holders. In this case, cupboards often have doors with locks to keep valuables or confidential information safe. Sideboards can also be a welcome addition to a bedroom for storing blankets and sheets, or even in a bathroom where towels, bathroom mats, and toiletries can be neatly stored. To meet many needs and applications, a modular chest of drawers allows you to use all the available space.

Sideboard as a showcase

In the common understanding, a sideboard is always perceived as a piece of furniture suitable for holding various kinds of objects against the wall . Design cupboards presented in recent years are, instead, real showcases, characterized by open compartments, which make it possible to display elegant objects, crystals and art objects. Double-sided cupboards even allow you to separate two spaces between them, becoming a real partition, albeit low, in the environment in which they are located. Open compartments are often replaced with glass or crystal doors, which show the nobility of the interior: a sideboard with integrated lighting allows you to place even more valuable items in them. This furniture is very delicate and fragile and requires special attention, especially if there are very mobile children in the house.

Sideboard: choose the right material

Sideboards were born in the 18th century as indispensable elements for serving dinners. They achieved their popularity in the 19th century, when families were wealthy enough to allocate their room only for lunch. Classic trunks were a complement available in a wide range of decorative styles, made of wood and decorated with expensive veneers and inlays. Versatile in both application and form, the sideboard design is suitable for material and chromatic experiments today, for models capable of meeting any stylistic and design requirement. Among the models on the market, you can actually choose between chests of drawers with clean and square geometry that play with alternating full and empty and interlocking volumes, or traditional kitchen cabinets with doors and drawers. People looking for a sideboard have an endless number of options. Depending on the budget, the material and hence the quality of the sideboards may vary. If you want more solidity and quality, you can choose a wooden sideboard, where damage from scratches and bumps is also easier to remove and paint. Wooden sideboards are a wise investment: in addition to being durable, they acquire character and charm even with the passage of time, giving the interior in which they are placed a vintage touch. Among the most desirable essences are oak, walnut, teak and rosewood for classic-style sideboards. These furniture are made with stronger edges and with special attention to detail and joints that can give them a unique style. If you do not want to leave the wood in sight and want to give the room a bit of color, whether in contrast or in combination with the rest of the furniture, we recommend fully customizable lacquered chests in colors: monochrome, two-color or multicolored, the choice is really wide. A cheaper alternative to solid wood is veneered wood planks, which are characterized by a coating of a thin sheet of real wood glued to the surface. Veneers can be laid on cheaper and lighter materials to save costs, or simply added to achieve a specific grain or color of the wood. If you do not want to give up the warmth of wood, but you do not have a high budget, you can opt for a steel and wood chest of drawers, the structure of which is made of metal, and the panels, drawers or doors are made of wood. For industrial and post-modern styles, we recommend steel or aluminum sideboards characterized by minimalist and clean lines, as well as modern sideboards with a concrete finish. Fans of a more sophisticated style will surely choose a glass sideboard, as elegant as it is extremely delicate. This type of furniture is more suitable for display than for storage: the glass of the door can therefore be transparent, satin or colored, depending on how much you want to show inside. If you are more oriented towards the luxury style, you need sideboards with leather doors or a marble sideboard: characterized by timeless elegance and simple and clean lines, leather or marble sideboards require special care during cleaning and maintenance. You also have to take into account the weight of the marble sideboards, which is certainly greater than that of a traditional piece of furniture. Finally, there are also the most unusual materials, such as synthetic materials (resins and melamines) resistant to scratching, high temperature, steam, water and stains; the latest generation of composite materials such as solid surface and finally ceramic materials such as majolica which give the house a country chic.
