Dining Room Buffet Decor

Dining room buffet décor helps make serving guests with food and drinks easier. Buffets and sideboards, in particular, are stylish furniture pieces that give dining rooms a special charm. With the holidays slowly approaching, now is an excellent time for you to get the best sideboard or buffet to use as your dining room buffet décor. To determine which one suits your home best, check out our buying guide below.

Size

When you are on the lookout for a buffet or sideboard, remember that the unit should be slightly higher compared to your dining table. The common height of sideboards is 36 inches. Depths and widths of dining room buffet décor vary, but you need to ensure that the one you purchase balances with the décor of the room. If you have a huge dining table, accompanying it with a mini or tiny buffet will seem a bit disjointed. The same is true with a small table paired with a large sideboard or buffet table.

Storage

With dining room furniture, people err on the formal side. If you want a traditional or formal buffet or sideboard, then you'd want closed storage or a unit with solid doors. A sideboard with closed storage is also preferred by homeowners as it eliminates the problem of displaying stored items nicely. As for open shelving, it has a lighter and airier feeling compared to heavy, closed sideboards. But, you need to organize the things stored and ensure that they look nice. Since formal china dinnerware and linen already look incredible, organizing and making your sideboard attractive isn't tough. If you are having difficulty deciding between the two, consider a unit with glass doors. They are not as heavy as solid wooden doors (visually), but they still provide covering for stored items.

Style

Sideboards and buffets are terms used interchangeably as they're often the same thing, but they're available in various styles. From classic Georgian and French country to urban contemporary, you'll be able to find the style that you love and one that works best for your home. When you are choosing a certain style, just make sure that the unit fulfills your needs. Now that you are aware of the guidelines you need to follow when buying a dining room buffet décor, take a look at our top picks.
