How to style your sideboard

Published on 13 May 2024 at 14:16

Sideboards are a home furnishing must-have, but is there a secret to creating an effortlessly stylish look?

There's an art to making furniture look good, and it's usually down to some simple styling tricks.

Sideboards are ideal for both storage and display use. Usually in a living or dining room, it's traditionally used to store dinnerware, but is also perfect for adding storage to any room without compromising on design.

Available in classic, stylish and contemporary styles, sideboards are a must-have storage solution, but what's on display is just as important as what's stored inside.

The Power of three: Groupings of three work extremely well - it's a magic number and since time began it just works.

  • Colour accents: The colour coordination is perfect here, lots of black to coordinate with the Wenge, and punctuated with metallic accents.
  • Something fresh to soften the look: a pure white hydrangea is a beautiful bold choice.
  • Symmetry: the framed images create a sense of balance to the arrangement.
  • Wood is a wonderful material but the grain can create quite a distraction and is a focal point in its own right.
  • Accentuate the warm tones of the sideboard by choosing some accessories.
  • Soft coloured aubergine and chocolate coloured glass vases are blended with white pots and monochrome prints by using lots of greenery and a copper tray.
