What are sideboards and buffet tables used for?

Typically a sideboard or buffet table is placed in a kitchen or dining room to provide extra space to serve food or store plates and dinnerware. However, it doesn't just stop there. Many people use sideboards and related furniture to display things or as a storage solution for their home.

What the difference between a buffet table and a sideboard?

Usually, sideboards have shorter legs than a buffet table. And while both a sideboard and a buffet table have doors and cabinets, some sideboards will have no doors and might function like a narrow table rather than a dedicated storage area. It's most common to see buffet tables in the dining room, while sideboards can find themselves at home anywhere from the kitchen to the living room and are used for storage when not being used to serve food.

Where should you place your sideboard or buffet table?

Where you place your buffet or sideboard all depends on what role it will be playing. If you need it to store plates or wine, the dining room may be the best location. However, if your plan is to store memorabilia and family heirlooms, you may often find sideboards in the living room or den.

What style sideboard or buffet should you get?

The style of sideboard or buffet table you should get highly depends on your current decorations and the style of your space. If you're having trouble, our design consultants can help you pick the perfect style for your space. However, something to keep in mind is that beyond just the style or form, it's also important to consider the function the piece will serve. For example, the size you need can become more important than the style you want if you have limited space.

Buffet and Server Table Materials

The type of material you pick for your buffet or server table matters as much as the color or pattern. Not only does the material you choose have a huge impact on your table's overall looks, but also, maybe more importantly it changes how your buffet table feels. For example, a metal trimmed or finished table would have a colder and more modern feel when compared to something like wood or stone which can project a warmer feel.

Buffet and Server Colors

How Do You Pick A Buffet Or Server Table Size?

When choosing a buffet or server table for your dining room or kitchen, it’s important to make sure it pairs well with your other furniture pieces in terms of both style and size. For example, for a server table, most often they stand a bit higher than the dining room or kitchen table. So it’s important to take note of your other furniture dimensions when picking a buffet table, even if to ensure there is room for foot-traffic between everything.
