Vintage sideboards have a high aesthetic appeal no matter where they are used in the home. You can take advantage of that and use them to create a focal point in the living room. Apart from providing the apparent benefits of more extensive storage space, they have mirrors to light up the room. Some of them could be decorated with inlaid wood with carved details, marble tops, or serpentine fonts.

You don’t have to confine an antique sideboard to the living or dining rooms. They can act as great foyer pieces for welcoming visitors into your home. You can use them to hold keys, scarves, mittens, and gloves so that you don’t have to enter with them into the house. On top of the sideboard, you may display flower vases and other pieces of art to create a great welcoming experience. The drawers are also great for storing paper clutter and mail.

Instead of holding the traditional silverware, you can use a vintage sideboard to keep your precious drinkware, snack trays, ice buckets, and serving tools. When party time comes, you can lay an array of drinks and snacks on the top. With that, you’ve got no need to buy separate furniture pieces to host your buffets.

With a vintage sideboard, you have ample space to hold your TV. It doesn’t matter how thin your television set is. Instead of hanging it on a wall, you can place the TV on top of the sideboard. Inside the drawers, you can keep other elements such as remote controls, DVDs, speakers, extension cables, and so on.
