Sideboard: combinations and uses

What is a sideboard and why can it be considered one of the most versatile and interesting pieces of furniture for living and sitting rooms? Here a brief guide on its origins, characteristics, possible combinations and many uses.

Sideboards: history and characteristics

Sideboards were originally used in country houses as a surface for kneading, it was strictly made of wood, and the shape was rectangular; the same bread or other bakery products were consequently kept in its internal compartment in order to preserve them better.
In the 21st century sideboards have remained of similar in shape, but evolved a lot. We can now find them in several materials – not only wood – and variants: with or without drawers, with one, two or three doors – also sliding doors.
Some combinations that we recommend for sideboards in a home with a modern look: MINERVA sideboard by Target Point with a classic design but with three drawers and two doors; GIUNONE sideboard with front inserts in very modern porcelain stoneware, featuring dark and full colours, with body in synchro wood-effect laminate; or MODUS sideboard with two simple sliding doors.
