Sideboard, Credenza, or Buffet?


They all have one thing in common - sideboard, credenza, and buffet are a short cabinet-style piece of furniture. A credenza is a sideboard that has no (or very short) legs. A buffet is a sideboard that has longer legs and is taller than credenza and sideboard. Sometimes they are also called "media units." A sideboard is usually taller than credenza and buffet because they have additional space to display decorative pieces.

Where to place a sideboard?


Sideboards are not bulky like other cabinets and dressers. They're usually under 20" inches deep, so they're great also for small spaces. You can place it along a wall, by a window, behind a sofa, or at the end of a bed. They are a great storage unit for a living room, office, dining room, and bedroom!

Should I choose open or closed storage?


If you want to store white porcelain or other decorative pieces, then sideboard with open storage will be the best choice! But if you're going to hide clutter or don't want to display some items, then go for a sideboard with closed storage.

Linen closet in your bedroom


If you have a tall bed, you can place your sideboard at the end of it for extra storage. It won't be as visible as a cabinet or a dresser but will offer a lot of space for your clothes and linen.

Sideboard as a design piece to define your space


Let's not forget that sideboard is not only a storage solution, but it's also a decorative element of your room. Sideboards are a perfect display surface for photos, lamps, and decor items.

If you want to refresh your room, start with a sideboard. It might be a small piece of furniture, but it can make a big difference in any space. See our selection of sideboards, buffets, and credenzas at Grayson Luxury.
