Decorating Ideas For A Sideboard
A sideboard is a piece of furniture created to serve foods and store dishes in a dining room setting. Decorating a sideboard so that it remains functional as well as attractive is not difficult if you stay true to the original purpose. Here are several ideas to decorating a sideboard. Look for a matching table runner for the sideboard. Typically, sideboards are very narrow like a cabinet. A whole tablecloth will not fit usually, but a table runner will. Popular fabrics for table runners include brocades, linen and cotton. Put together an arrangement of flowers—dried, fresh or silk will work. This will function as the centrepiece for the display. Flowers and greenery such as roses, gladiolas, fern frond and baby’s breath make elegant displays. Select some candles that would go nicely with your decorating scheme. If you already have candles in the room, choose ones in similar colours or styles. Additionally, if you feel a floral display wouldn’t be right for the space, floating-candle arrangements offer an alternative.
Seek out an appropriate piece of artwork to display above the sideboard. Because this is a traditional piece of furniture, an oil painting of the countryside or a still life of fruit and florals would be appropriate. Choose some sconces to hang above the sideboard and to complement the artwork you’ve chosen. This provides extra light for the area, but also provides a bit of visual balance. Frame some family photographs and arrange them on the sideboard.
