Styling Your Sideboard

Sideboards are an excellent addition to any home. They can be used in a living room, entrance, the bedroom and add precious storage space. They give a great little (or big) space for things such as CDs, paperwork, hats and scarfs, or table linen, but that isn’t the only thing. They’re also extremely useful for displaying treasured accessories and keeping things handy for quick access.

Here are some pointers on how to style it to achieve different looks. Which look you go for is of course down to your individual taste. I hope they will be helpful.

Hampton Oak Sideboard

A beautiful, large, slightly rustic piece like the Hampton Solid Oak Sideboard just yells for a bohemian style which can be delivered with a display of lots of original and textured accessories. Choose from materials such as wood, stone and coral. The key then is to overlap the elements. Don’t be worried about putting things in front of each other or even on top of each other. Whatever you do, keep them tight together and embrace the natural vibe.

For a sophisticated and somewhat more minimalist look, adhere to some well-chosen and matching pieces. White and black are the classic colours but don’t be scared to liven things up a little with a burst of colour.

Of course, your sideboard might be more used more like a console table like the Bellerose Oak Console Table. This kind of “light design” lends itself to an eclectic look with loads of colourful accessories. This one can be loaded with colours and patterns.

Last but no least, consider what’s around your sideboard. An over scaled piece of artwork can add some drama and give a laid back vibe at the same time. Books stacked onto the sideboard always add interest, make you look intellectual, not that you would need the extra help of course. If you fancy a bit of symmetry, think about adding two lamps or potted plants, one on either end. Symmetry calms the eyes and creates a relaxing environment.

Courant Oak Sideboard

So, these are a few of my tips. Do any of these styles appeals or does your idea of a styled sideboard look totally different?
