When you’ve welcomed one of the Scandinavian interior trends in your abode, you know it’s so much more than just a trend: it’s a lifestyle! Speaking of lifestyle, it’s about accepting more of the philosophy of minimalism, so when you have a Scandinavian interior, you have room only for what really adds comfort, and quality.
In other words, you pay more attention to what you choose to welcome as part of your interior and life, and this way you make better purchasing decisions. One of them is opting for a sideboard buffet because there’s always room for more stylish storage, and the neat outcome one can expect to see from it.
The wide range of these furniture pieces, the variety of design options, materials they are made of, colours, and styles (mid-century, French country, Victorian…) they can be found in, and the affordable prices – you are sure to find something that you love. What can be concluded from this is that the sideboard buffet pieces are purposeful, and just as good with amplifying functionality as they are with aesthetics.
No matter whether you consider sideboards and buffets slightly different (in the height of the legs, for instance, the smaller ones being of the buffets), or one and the same thing, fact is they are used interchangeably nowadays mostly because they practically look the same.
Some sideboards and buffets come with drawers and sliding doors, perfect for closed storage, others come with shelves ideal for displaying open storage. You can make your choice based on whether you like to display items, or allow a bit of a mess with the closed option.
Though usually the pieces one would find in the dining room, things have considerably changed in terms of where and how furniture pieces like these are used, especially since the trend of open space interiors, where the line of dining room and living room isn’t so well defined.
What this means is you can buy these items for other rooms too, any part of your living space that you think could do with some of the charm of a sideboard or buffet. Used in the living room, they’re fit for storing books, magazines, and of course, displaying some decorating pieces. Don’t forget the bedroom too!
And that’s not it: sideboards, and buffets for that matter, are just as good used in the hall too. Not having much of a hall isn’t an excuse not to invite one of these pieces because you can easily find narrow ones that would fit perfectly.
As soon as you add one, you’d wonder why you didn’t do so earlier, providing the storage to hide your shoes, umbrellas, sunglasses, or winter hats. Quite the versatile pieces, aren’t they?
