What to Consider When Buying a Buffet Cabinet

Also referred to as a sideboard, buffet cabinets can also serve other uses in the house. This cabinets come of different materials and styles, making it relatively easy to find one that suits your home décor.

Purpose

The kind of buffet cabinet you purchase will largely depend on how you plan to use it. If your intentions are to store pieces of silverware and linens or to display your antique crystal and china, look for a buffet cabinet that has glass doors at the top as well cupboards and drawers at the bottom.

Location

Although buffet cabinets are traditionally located in the dining room, there’s no written rule on where they should be placed. If you are looking for storage in your hallway, a buffet cabinet will do just fine. Go for one with cupboards and shelves to store all your seasonal items like scarves, boots and hats.


Size

Nomatter where you want your buffet cabinet placed, it is important to get one that’s proportionate to the available space. A large, ornate Victorian cabinet may impose in a small room, but enhance a large room. On the other hand, a delicate Chippendale styled cabinet may be lost in a larger room.
