House of Interiors: Sideboard Slideshow

Far from a sideshow, a sideboard or server can offer several decor benefits, including practical storage and display space. See how from House Of Interiors.

These workhorses of the decor world have come a long way from their Victorian roots and, today, fit neatly into any decor scheme, from classic to contemporary. In addition, they’ve also evolved from a dining-room-only furniture item to one that can now be found in all rooms in the home, from bedrooms to study rooms.

Available in a wide range of styles, when it comes to selecting a sideboard or server for your home, it’s best to keep the following in mind:


Choose a sideboard or server that compliments your existing decor style. A dark-wood sideboard like the Vee Server fits well with a retro, rustic or farmhouse style, while a lighter-coloured, glossy sideboard, such as the Dolce Vita Server or New York Sideboard, is a good fit for contemporary homes.

Size and Proportion

Of course, the piece has to fit well in the space you have in mind, so make sure to measure the area before your purchase to ensure the sideboard will fit in length and width. In addition, it is also best to opt for a sideboard that is similar in height or slightly taller than the rest of the furniture in the room for balanced proportions.

Location and Use

Where and for what you use your sideboard will also be a determining factor. For instance, if you are using it for crockery, you may want a sideboard with glass insets to display pretty china. If you use it in a bedroom, a sideboard with drawers will be a practical choice. A slim server for keys and other essentials is ideal in an entrance hall. Try the modern Zanzibar Ash Server.


House of Interiors stocks a wide selection of servers and sideboards in a variety of styles.
