As the nights are getting cooler and Labor Day becomes a distant memory, fall is now upon us, which means one thing — the holidays are comin’ in hot! If you are hosting your nearest and dearest this year, now is the time to get your dining room's act together. Our dining room is typically used for more formal dinners and holidays, and when it's not in use? Well, it becomes a dumping ground for place mats, decanters, wine glasses and more. Here enters the all versatile sideboard.
While a sideboard can really amp up your decor scheme, it's one of the most practical pieces of furniture you own. Why? Well, for one, I don’t see your couch storing wine, tucking away extra platters and linens or elegantly serving food, all while hosting the candles that perfectly light the room.
And fear not, the sideboard options on the market right now are practically limitless. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and price points, the piece is totally malleable to your room size, aesthetic and budget. I took the liberty of rounding up 10 beauitiful options that each check differnt boxes (Wine rack! Traditional! Bohemian! Gold accents!). Regardless of which one you choose, know that this is the best purchase you're going to make for your dining room ... and your holiday hosting success just may depend on it!
