Sideboards Design

Choosing the right sideboard can be quite tricky these days, with the vast number of choices available in the market. Here are a few ideas to get just the right one for your home or office.

Sideboards are available in all kinds of materials these days. You can achieve a modern look by investing in something in space-wood or even metal. Some of the options out there can be quite impressive. However, when it comes to picking a sideboard that will lend a classy look to your space-home or office-there’s nothing quite like a solid wood unit to do the trick. It may be a little more expensive, but the sophistication it can offer is unparalleled. Moreover, there’s no limit to the variety you can get with even solid wood. With the options that are available in the types of wood, you could get something in rich, dark tones, as well as something in lighter hues to brighten up your space.


Teak wood and oak wood would be the best among the choices that you have, given the quality that they offer. They would be make for sturdy units, and they would last for years and years, making your choice one that you will not regret. Teak is a little darker than oak, so if you want to try different colours, oak would be a better choice, as it would serve as more of a canvas for you to try out different shades of varnish. With teak, you’d be going in for something more traditional and timeless-something that’ll never really go out of style.


For more vibrant options, turn to mango wood or sheesham, both of which are generally lighter, but offer interesting visual textures, with the tones. In a more modern decor, they would be ideal. With lighter woods, you also have the option of giving it a new look a few years down the line. While redecorating, they can be scrubbed down to form the right base for the varnish of your choice.

In terms of size, it really depends on the space that you have in mind for the sideboard. A longer unit would be more suitable in a drawing room. Smaller units would be more functional, serving as extra space for your things in a bedroom perhaps. If the area of the room that you’re looking to put it in is small, a small sideboard, with taller shelves would be just what you would need in terms of storage. For an office or a study, sideboards with filing drawers are also available, which give you ample storage for important papers, while also eliminating the ugly filing cabinets from your space.

Sideboards also come with interesting detailing that could add certain resplendence to your space. Carved wood, borders on the cupboards, and ornate embellishments and fixtures can make it look fancy, as per your choosing. In order add richness to your room, pick something with handles of the drawers and cupboards made be classic brass, or even in cut-glass or crystal, for a more delicate look. However, if you want a minimal look, a plain sideboard with borderless cupboards and drawers would be the best bet.
