Storage is a precious thing within the home, and more of it is usually a welcome thing for families. As belongings accumulate, finding clever ways to store items so that living spaces can be kept clutter-free is of high importance – and one of the most interesting and reliable solutions of all is a stylish sideboard. Often containing a combination of cupboard space, shelves and drawers, they provide simple organisation for a variety of purposes.
From wooden oak sideboards to stylish white gloss sideboards, the Barker and Stonehouse range has been carefully curated to offer something for every home. Our small and narrow sideboards will work well in a flat, while our large and tall sideboards help maximise available space in more generous living areas. There are endless options to choose from, so let's look at a few aspects you may wish to consider when seeking the perfect sideboard for your home.Choosing a room
Sideboards are often associated with dining rooms and, if you're hoping to find a sideboard to go with your existing dining set or table, we're sure that one of the pieces in our range will work perfectly. However, sideboards can generally be used in any room: perhaps in the living room to provide a place to store children's toys or extra sofa cushions, or maybe in a kitchen to offer an extra storage option for crockery, without needing to refit the entire kitchen itself. Many of our sideboards are also part of a matching dining furniture range, which means you can create a stylish and cohesive look with ease.Selecting a suitable size for the space
When picturing a sideboard, most people would imagine a sizeable piece of furniture that stands out in a room – and there's no doubt that there are plenty of large sideboards and long sideboards on the market that align with this idea. However, the Barker and Stonehouse sideboard range caters to all spaces. If you need a small sideboard to suit your intended room, look no further than our low height options, or our narrow sideboards with 2 doors. You may even find that a space you have once considered unsuitable for a sideboard can actually accommodate one of our designs perfectly.Finding the right material
Our sideboards are available in a wide range of materials, all of which have their own unique benefits and charm. In addition to traditional oak sideboards and dark wood walnut sideboards, we also offer pieces in more modern finishes, such as high gloss, marble and glass. For those seeking something a little different, we’re proud to present our unique reclaimed wood sideboards. Beautifully crafted from recycled pine, mango wood and more, they make a wonderful choice for the environmentally conscious, and often fit the bill if you’re searching for an industrial sideboard or a rustic sideboard.Considering colour and cohesion
At Barker and Stonehouse, we understand that our customers need their sideboard to fit in well with their existing décor. Your colour schemes, as well as furniture pieces such as the dining table or chairs, are important deciding factors when selecting a sideboard that works for you. If you’re looking for something versatile that will stay on-trend throughout the years then it’s worth considering a black, grey or white sideboard, whilst for a vintage or mid-century interior we have numerous brass and gold options on offer. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a statement piece that will stand out against your decor, then a mirrored sideboard will certainly deliver – or perhaps one of our unique geometric designs. There really is something for every style in our vast selection of sideboards.
