    5 TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR SIDEBOARD WITH EASE 

    Are you struggling to style your sideboard in a way that feels authentic to you? We’ve brought together our top tips to show you how effortlessly you can elevate your sideboard with a few simple steps. Read on if you’re ready to transform that unused space into an inspiring statement within your home. 

    THE RULE OF THREE 

    As sideboards often have spacious surfaces it’s important to divide the space into three distinct focal points. This will help you to avoid cluttering your furniture piece and will create an eye-catching statement without overcrowding your interiors.

    CHOOSE A THEME

    Before selecting the pieces for your focal points consider what interior style is aligned with your personality and home aesthetic. The pieces you choose for your sideboard should harmonise with your interiors so that they can evolve with your style over the years. 

    WEAVE IN COLOUR AND TEXTURE

    The next step is to carefully consider the colours and textures you are pairing together. Are they aligned with your theme? Do they complement each other or create contrast? Take the time to experiment with different colours and textures and always choose pieces that feel authentic to you.

    EXPERIMENT WITH SCALE

    You can also add interest and depth to your sideboard by experimenting with scale. Decorative pieces in a variety of sizes, heights and shapes will enhance your interiors as opposed to feeling flat and uniform.

    ADD PERSONAL TOUCHES  

    One of the easiest ways to add personal touches to your sideboard is by creating a feature with your favourite books. We recommend experimenting with a vertical or horizontal stack and using a piece of decor such as a candle or crystal as a bookend.
