    5 IDEAS FOR DECORATING YOUR SIDEBOARD 

    We delve into some simple ways you can use your sideboard for more than just storage and instead turn it into a space which elevates the style of your home.

    BEGIN BY SIMPLIFYING

    Whether your sideboard is minimalistic or slightly cluttered, the first step is to simplify the surface area by removing everything and then deciding if you would like to create two or three focal points. How many focal points you style will depend on the length of your sideboard and if you have any artwork hanging above.

    GROUP ITEMS TOGETHER

    A few items you may like to feature on your sideboard include books, candles, greenery, lamps, decorative pieces or artwork. To begin with we recommend creating groups of three and pairing similar items together. An example of this could be three of your favourite interior design books styled neatly or a plant and two crystals.

    MAKE A STATEMENT WITH ART

    If you would like to include an artwork above your sideboard then we recommend keeping your styling simple to let the art do the talking. You may like to include a small plant or a crystal in a colour which complements the artwork to complete the look.

    THINK ABOUT COLOUR

    If you’re feeling unsure about which pieces to choose for your sideboard, then you can begin by analysing the room your sideboard is positioned in and choosing one to two colours which are prominent within the room. Once you’ve identified the colours you would like to use simply select decorative pieces which have the colour included in them. An example of this could be adding a blue crystal if you have blue featured in cushions or a throw within the room.

    MAKE IT PRACTICAL

    It’s essential to take into consideration where your sideboard is placed and to think about the practical elements you need to have it fit effortlessly into your space. You may like to consider adding a lamp for additional light within the room or a bowl to store keys if it’s at the entryway to your home.
