Oak Sideboards and Buffets
Aside from being attractive and functional, solid wooden sideboards and buffets made from oak and other hardwoods are durable. You can match a sideboard or buffet with furniture styles you already own or blend different styles to create an eclectic decor.
What Styles of Sideboards Are Available?
Oak sideboards are available in lighter-toned woods such as beige or you can paint the furniture white. A contemporary sideboard may have a high-gloss top with cabinets and drawers underneath for storage. Choose an oak sideboard in a rustic design designed with openings for rattan baskets you can transfer easily. If you prefer older furniture, choose antique styled pieces with lockable drawers and turned legs. Many of these sideboards have cupboard doors you can open to use as a storage cabinet for china and other tableware.
What Styles of Buffets Are Available?
You can use an oak buffet in other rooms besides a dining room. Use one in a hallway to store shoes, pet food and other items you use daily. Some buffets have intricately carved designs on corners and along the front of the furniture. Likewise, buffets that feature a built-in wine cabinet or a designated drawer for silver flatware save you time when entertaining guests.
