Shopping for a sideboard or credenza for your home? If so, this is an exciting part of your home decorating journey! Not only does a sideboard buffet add exceptional style to your home, but it provides unmatched functionality as well. An excellent storage option, it helps you de-clutter your space by providing you with a central location to store whatever you see fit. At City Furniture, we have a vast collection of sideboards and buffets for you to choose from.
What’s the difference between a sideboard and buffet?
Let’s be honest, most people don’t know the difference between servers, sideboards, buffets and credenzas. So, if you happen to be one of those people, there’s no reason for you to be ashamed. In the furniture industry, these words are often used interchangeably. Here are some things that you should know about each to help make your shopping experience easier.
Sideboard: Sideboards typically have short legs and cabinets that extend all the way to the floor.
Buffet: Looks exactly like a sideboard but with higher/longer legs.
Server: Smaller in size, lighter and more formal in appearance than a sideboard/buffet.
Credenza: Previously, credenzas were known as servers with no legs and sliding doors. However, it isn’t rare for a modern credenza to have legs.
Do I really need a sideboard/buffet?
Yes, a buffet table does more than provide you with a stylish add to the room. A spacious dining room buffet gives you a place to store wine glasses, your favorite bottles of liquor and anything you see fit. With the right sized buffet cabinet, you can even display your favorite dishware, silverware and tabletop accessories.
What style sideboard should I get?
When shopping for buffet furniture, just stay true to your unique taste and preference. If you have a modern home, adding a white sideboard or credenza would be an excellent touch. Meanwhile, if your taste is more subtle, a mid century credenza would stun in your space. You can also use the sideboard as a pop of color in an otherwise dull room. Here at City Furniture, we feature buffets in all colors and styles so you can get exactly what you want.
