Sideboards & Cabinets
What exactly is a Sideboard?
More than just a storage cupboard, the decision to buy a sideboard or drinks cabinet is a considered purchase. This is a type of furniture typically used in the dining room or living room. It is often handmade from wood, and it usually has multiple drawers and cabinets for storage. For example a 3 door sideboard or a 3 drawer sideboard or a 2 door storage cupboard. Primarily a neat and tidy solution to hiding away any number of items from toy storage to glassware and crockery, these sideboards and cabinets allow you to keep your storage organised and your space neaty and presentable. From the glamorous drinks cbinet where you can host your cocktail evenings to the solid mango wood 3 drawer sideboard, if you are looking at sideboards and display cabinets then take a look at the range at MalletandPlane.com. Here you'll find the Miso 3 door sideboard which is made from solid mango wood with a beautiful relief pattern on the doors, or the gorgeous Muna 3 drawer sideboard with its distinctive solid wood door pattern also provides an excellent way to add to your storage space. This particular piece looks great in your home office, providing a great stylish alternative to standard functional office furniture. You might want your new furniture to match other pieces in the home so choosing aunifying material such as mango wood or light oak will help. Sideboards are often used to store dishes, silverware, linens, and other items used in the dining room. Normally placed next to the dining table and dining benches with a piece of wall art above, it helps to create the perfect room where you'll love entertaining your guests. Sideboards can also be used to store blankets, games, books, and other items in the living room. Or as a piece of bedroom furniture or kids furniture where you can hide away the kids bedding and toys. In reality, a sideboard or cabinet is a piece of storage furniture so you can use them in many situations around the home. Beyond their primary purpose of storage, sideboards can also be used as a surface for serving food or as a decorative piece of furniture or even an alternative tv unit - just add a couple of bean bags and a floor lamp and you've created a den. When shopping for a sideboard, it is important to consider the size of the room, the style of the furniture, and the amount of storage needed. Here at MalletandPlane.com we have a good selection of sideboards available and each item will display it's delivery information in the product details.
Can you paint wood cabinets?
Whether or not you can paint wooden sideboards or storage cabinets depends on the type of wood and the natural grain. If the wood is very smooth with no grain, then painting should be no problem. However, if the wood has a natural grain, the paint may not adhere well and could end up looking uneven. In addition, the natural oils in some types of wood can also make it difficult for paint to stick. Some argue that the beauty of natural mango wood or other natural wood such as light oak is infinitely preferable to a bland white high gloss sideboard, but of course this is personal choice. If you're unsure whether your cabinets are made of a paintable wood, it's always best to consult with a professional before proceeding. With the right preparation, however, it is possible to achieve a beautiful finish thatwill brighten up your home. Of course you can always choose the hand painted gradient 3 drawer sideboard which is made from solid mango wood and comes pre-built with the only assembly required from you is to attach the legs. Then theres the 4 door 4 drawer raw mango and reclaimed metal Loft XL Sideboard for a distinctive Industrial Vintage look.
Are dark wood cabinets out of style?
Much more than just a storage cupboard, natural wood cabinets are definitely not out of style! In fact, they've been making a comeback in recent years as more and more people are looking for ways to add a natural touch to their homes. Whilst white gloss and gloss sideboards in general remain popular, matte finish and coloured matte has started to trend as seen in the Evissa range. Chestnut finished cabinets are particularly popular right now, as they offer a beautiful rich colour that is perfect for creating a warm and inviting space. Whilst mixing a light oak looking natural mango with brass elements as seen in the Clift Drinks Cabinet can create a stunning feature of your bar furniture. Here you might consider if you need bar stools or cocktail chairs to accompany the look. Mid-century style cabinetry is also seeing a resurgence in popularity, as it offers a clean and timeless look that can easily be incorporated into any home. So if you're thinking about updating your interior, don't rule out dark wood sideboards or cabinets - they may just be the perfect option for you! Take a look at the magnificent Verdi Sideboars featuring sliding doors and a lovely and distinctive brass inlaid pattern on the door. Handmde from solid mango wood in a deep chetnut finish, it is th perfect mid-century sideboard.
How to clean wood cabinets and sideboards
When it comes to cleaning your wood display cabinets and storage space, the best approach is to use natural methods and materials. Start by dusting the surface with a soft cloth or brush. If there is any built-up dirt or grease,
you can make a paste of baking soda and water to gently scrub it away. Once the surface is clean, you can use a natural oil to help protect the wood. Light olive oil is a good option, but you can also use coconut oil or beeswax. Simply apply a small amount to a clean cloth and rub it into the wood in a circular motion. This will help to moisturize the wood and prevent future damage. The same approach can be applied to other pieces of real wood furniture around the home from your console tables, dining benches, or dining table and other kitchen furniture. With regular care, your wood cabinets and sideboards will remain looking beautiful for years to come.
Where to buy wood cabinets
When shopping for sideboards and display cabinets and wooden sideboards in particular, you might look for a store specialising in storage cabinets where you may find them placed along side coffee tables, console tables, chests of drawers, sofa sets or other kitchen furniture or bedroom furniture. This might be a time consuming excercise so an online portal such as Malletand Plane.com can help to research your options. These days we are all looking for a low price but do bear in mind that high quality solid wood sideboards and cabinets will command a premium, and factor in the delivery information as this will add to the overall convenience of online shopping.
