Sideboards and cabinets can be used to add style, functionality and personality to your living space. Ideal for use as extra storage, or for displaying photos, ornaments and greenery, a cabinet or sideboard will make a great addition to your interior décor.
A sideboard, also known as a buffet, is a piece of furniture that’s traditionally placed in the dining room and used for displaying and serving dishes. These days however, it’s probably more common to find sideboards in living rooms, hallways and kitchen/diners.
If your TV sits comfortably on your sideboard, there’s no reason you can’t use the piece of furniture as a TV stand. If you want to use a sideboard as a TV stand, make sure you check its dimensions against the base of your television before you buy.
There’s no difference at all between a buffet and a sideboard. Sideboards can also be known as buffets because they were originally used in dining rooms for displaying and serving food.
