Simple yet functional; stylish yet not ostentatious, when you are looking for a piece of furniture that can be used for storage or serving as well as a decorative piece, you can’t go wrong with a sideboard or buffet.

Whether you are looking for an antique style for your dining area or something more modern for your living space, there is sure to be a sideboard or buffet that will reflect your personality and complement the décor in your home. There is a large selection of sideboards and buffets to suit any budget or taste online on eBay.

What’s the difference between a sideboard and a buffet?

Generally speaking, there is no real distinction between the two pieces of furniture. However, different names are used to describe them when they are in different rooms. For example, in a dining room, it may be referred to as a buffet, while when placed in the living room, it is referred to as a sideboard.

Storage pieces on higher legs are referred to as buffets, while those on shorter (or no) legs are called sideboards.

Bring practicality and style to your home

Once used as a simple plank to put food on whilst serving, drawers and cupboards were soon added below to create a piece of furniture that was used for displaying prized possessions and fine crockery. They’re now the perfect place to keep your plates, wine glasses, table linen, and fine china. 

Available in textured rustic-styled wood, black matte, white vintage or even glass, and in tall and wide designs, they’re the perfect companion to your already existing furnishings.
