Sideboards are a classic piece of storage furniture no home should be without. Our range of designs includes those inspired by more traditional sideboards along with modern takes on this desirable storage option. Our sideboards also come in a wide range of sizes, offering options for small rooms as well as versions that will look proportional to both larger rooms and generous open-plan areas. To create more storage space without taking up more of the floor available in your room, consider, too, our taller sideboards which add extra stash space with their height. When you’re choosing, think about whether you want a sideboard that offers only concealed storage in classic style, or a design that incorporates open shelving, too, in order to get the best option for your room. Whichever style you decide on you won’t miss out on display space because all our sideboard designs have a top surface which can be dressed with decorative accessories, artwork and more to boost the loveliness of any room in which you situate your storage furniture.
Pick the right sideboard design
A sideboard is a traditional piece of dining room furniture, but our range includes designs for all manner of other spaces in your home. You’ll find options suitable for living spaces, hallways, home offices, bedrooms and more among our collection. For small rooms, take a look at our Somersby cupboard, Portland double cupboard, or Evesham double cupboard. Each offers both drawer and cupboard space so you can tidy away everything from table linens and cutlery to documents in your home office, or toys in a kid’s room. They’re each slim enough from side to side to fit into compact rooms and areas, though. For larger rooms, consider the Portland triple cupboard or Bruton sideboard, which provide generous storage. The Bruton sideboard incorporates open shelving as well as cupboards for additional decorative display. Take a look, too, at the Bruton handleless sideboard for a minimalist take on sideboard storage, or go taller with the small or large Somersby dressers which combine cupboards with open shelves to show off books, photographs, tableware and more. And if you want storage for wine along with all you need to dress the dining table, our Portland wine cupboard will give bottles a stylish home.
Personalise your sideboard
When you go for a sideboard from our collection you can individualise the design to make it the perfect piece for your room. Our furniture has a painted finish that makes it easy to combine with the existing wooden pieces you have in your room or other painted furniture, and you can select the paint colour you love from our range of beautiful shades. For fans of neutral tones, we offer both beige-toned and grey-toned versions along with hues of white and cream for maximum light reflection. Alternatively try a pretty mid blue, or a classic dark shade of the colour; or go for a contemporary charcoal or the sophisticated delicacy of blush. It’s also possible to order a sideboard unpainted if you’ve already fallen for a paint colour, and finish the furniture yourself. Your sideboard will also have the look you want because you can choose handles and knobs for drawers and cupboard doors from our wide selection. Some of our sideboard designs also offer the option of a glass top that adds extra protection to your piece of furniture.
Plan sideboard storage
To pick the best sideboard for your room, it’s essential to think about the items you want to store inside. If you’re going to be tidying away items such as plates in the dining room, consider a design such as the Somersby cupboard which has adjustable shelves. With a design like this one you can create the necessary depth for large serving dishes, while setting a lesser depth for plate shelves to accommodate the smaller height piles that keep crockery in best condition. If your sideboard is destined for a home office, tall cupboard areas will allow you to put away files and folders neatly, and a sideboard configured this way could equally suit kids’ toys. Think about drawer space as well. Wide drawers will fit large documents you need to keep flat, while narrower drawers will keep table linens such as napkins and smaller table-setting accessories neat and easily accessible. If you like to put your loveliest tableware on display, a dresser-style sideboard will suit you down to the ground, but they can also be clever choices for the home office to keep books, manuals, and paperwork stored in attractive files immediately to hand.
