Sideboard. Thursday , November 02nd , 2017 - 15:18:35 PM
Sideboards were very popular after the Second World War and a good, solid oak sideboard in a medium stain was de rigueur in many households. In the 1970s, teak ruled supreme, together with a fashion for long, low sideboards with three simple compartments. This was followed by the desire for unstained pine in everything, until folk got tired of the propensity of pale pine wood to turn rather orange on contact with sunlight after a sustained period of time. This is easily solved by buying pine with an "antique" stain already on it to cool it down.
An oak sideboard used in the study or home office will need to double up as a desk and will then be used to contain and hide office supplies like pens, reams of paper for the printer, small desk items like staplers and hole punches and of course a calculator. The top could even have a printer or in-tray adorning it. When selecting your sideboard, you need to think about how much storage space you are going to need. They come with various combinations of drawers, cupboards and open shelving. Some even have concealed lighting inside them, especially if they have glass doors, but these will need to have a nearby power point. A well-made piece may have dovetailed joints and solid oak drawer bottoms and cupboard backs. Solid oak furniture is an investment for your family and will bring pleasure, and admiring glances, for years to come.
There are my types of sideboards as well. You can get a sideboard with drawers, cabinets, or shelves. Your sideboard may be nothing more than an accent table, but that is enough to ensure the overall appearance in your home is one to remember. There are also many different materials involved in making sideboard furniture. You have just about every type of wood, marble, and various metals to select your perfect piece from. Choosing antique sideboard furniture could be more complex than one would think.
