So many lovely options in modern buffet tables make it easy to find something that will change the way you enjoy your favorite rooms in your home.
Where Buffets & Sideboards Work Best
Due to their distinctive nature, modern sideboards and buffets work well in quite a few places in the home. The most obvious choice for many homeowners is the dining room, where a buffet instantly adds serving space as well as bonus storage for wine, china or linens. Modern buffets also shine when employed as a standalone piece along an open wall. Place a dish on top as a key catcher or simply decorate with candles or a lamp and a vase with some flowers. When you decide to entertain, you can use your buffet or sideboard as a cocktail bar or a coffee station no matter where you've decided to incorporate it into your home's décor. And consider providing plenty of light to the tabletop with a buffet lamp.

Modern buffet tables embrace contemporary elements while often paying tribute to the designs of decades ago. The selection of sideboards and buffets available today allows for easy pairing with your existing décor as well as finding a more dramatic piece to set off the look and feel of the room.

From light to dark wood, polished metals and closed to exposed styles, modern sideboards effortlessly enhance the ambiance as well as the functional convenience of your home décor.
Choosing the Best Buffets & Sideboards
The timeless form and function of modern buffets gives these furnishings a pleasant permanent appeal. Finding the right sideboard for your home begins with choosing the best space for the buffet. Once you know where your buffet is going to go, you can take measurements and find the right size and shape for the space. Typically modern sideboards come in just a bit higher than the dining room table, commonly around 36 inches high. As far as length, make sure you leave enough room on either side of the buffet so that your space doesn't feel cramped.
