Sideboards & Buffet Cabinets

Common sideboard materials

Sideboards most commonly come in wood and metal, but most opt for wooden sideboards that match different design styles more easily. Wooden sideboards also age better with time and can bring a natural element to homes, on top of adding storage space to living rooms.

Finding the right sideboard for your home

Sideboards come in a wide variety of styles. From retro, mid-century modern pieces to contemporary Scandi-style designs, it’s easy to find the piece that will suit your home perfectly. Those looking for a mid-century modern piece to bring out retro chic can consider the Harper Sideboard, a popular Castlery piece that is slowly finding its way into Singaporean living rooms.

If you’re considering adding a sideboard or cabinet to your interior, look for a piece that complements your existing furnishings. If you already have dressers, console tables or coffee tables made from wood, choose a sideboard with a timber finish. Alternatively, if your other pieces of furniture are painted, opt for a more colorful sideboard and help your interior really come together.

Small interiors will benefit from the extra storage provided by sideboards. So, if your home is bijou, choose a piece with lots of cupboards and drawers.

Choosing the ideal size for a sideboard

Choosing the ideal size for a sideboard in your home involves considering factors such as the size of the room, the available space, and the intended use of the sideboard. Measure the area where you plan to place the sideboard, including any clearance space required for opening doors or drawers.

Consider the height of the sideboard as well, as it should be in proportion to the room and any other furniture it will be placed alongside. Think about how you will use the sideboard, and choose a size that accommodates your storage needs without overwhelming the space.


What is a sideboard?

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 kitchens or diners.

Perfect for use as extra storage space, they can also be used to display photos, plants and ornaments in place of shelves and racks.

Can you use a sideboard as a TV console?

There's no reason not to! Low sideboards make good TV consoles, although it’s important to check if your TV will fit on your sideboard before you buy.

What's the difference between a buffet and a sideboard?

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.

How do I clean my sideboard cabinets?

Cleaning a sideboard is relatively easy and can be done with basic cleaning supplies. First, remove all items from the sideboard, and dust the surface with a soft, dry cloth or feather duster.

For stubborn dirt or grime, use a damp microfiber cloth to gently wipe down the surface, being careful not to use too much water or leave the surface wet. Avoid using abrasive or harsh cleaners that may damage the finish of the sideboard. For wooden sideboards, use a wood cleaner or polish to restore the shine and protect the finish.

Can I use sideboards as a wine cabinet?

Although there are storage units purposefully built for storing wines, spirits and other liquors, sideboards can double up as bar cabinets, with ample surface area for mixing drinks.
