Sideboard vs Dresser...

Both sideboards and dressers are ideal for storage and for displaying items such as flowers and ornaments. 

Ideal for storing away cushions, throws, crockery or even books, a sideboard or dresser can complement your kitchen, dining room or living room. Being both beautiful and functional both sideboards and dressers have valuable storage space ideal for when every possible nook and cranny is needing to be utilised (often to capacity). Out of all the storage items of furniture the humble sideboard and Dresser is often overlooked, but why when they are so versatile?

Sideboards are traditionally a rectangular, waist-height unit that (unsurprisingly) sits against the longest wall in the dining room. Traditionally used in the dining room to store wine glasses, serving dishes and the best china, it is also a great place to store vases, napkins, and the like. However, with storage space is at a premium out of all the storage items of furniture the humble sideboard is often overlooked, but why when it is so versatile? The humble sideboard is:

  • An additional serving surface
  • Has lots of hidden storage
  • Somewhere to display your favourite objects
  • Availabe in a variety of widths and depth
