We’ve all been there — faced with an overflowing kitchen, with cabinets stuffed to the brim. There are only so many organizational products you can pick up before you face the facts and realize it’s time for a whole new storage unit (or home). Luckily, many of us aren’t utilizing our eateries, nooks, and dining spaces to their fullest potential and can typically incorporate a new furniture piece … if we dare. That’s why we rounded up the best sideboard cabinets so you can add a functional piece of furniture to your space that’s stylish.

What Is a Sideboard Cabinet?

Sideboards typically come in an assortment of low-profile styles that add an attractive design element to your space. Back in the day (we’re talking about the 18th and 19th centuries), they were used among the wealthy to store extra cutlery, china, and linens in dining rooms. Modern sideboards, however, can be used anywhere — your kitchen, office, dining room, and even your living room (they double as TV consoles!). Basically, sideboards are stylish storage cabinets made to go against the side of your wall. That’s why it’s called a sideboard; you get it?
