A buffet is a long, low piece of furniture traditionally used in dining rooms. It typically offers storage space with drawers and cabinets, and a flat surface on top for serving food or displaying decorative items.

Buffets are great for storing various dining essentials. You can use the drawers for silverware, tablecloths, and napkins. Cabinets can house your dishes, serving platters, and extra glasses.

The beauty of a buffet table is its versatility. Here are some ideas:

  • Create a stylish tablescape: Arrange decorative items like lamps, candlesticks, artwork, or vases.
  • Showcase your china: If you have a beautiful set of dishes, use the buffet to display them with pride.
  • Themed displays: Match your decor! For a coastal theme, use seashells or coral.

Traditionally, buffets have a slightly higher surface compared to sideboards, making them ideal for serving dishes. Sideboards might have more elaborate detailing and are often used in living rooms or hallways for purely decorative purposes.

The ideal length depends on your space and needs. Standard buffets range from 4 to 6 feet long. If you have a larger dining room, you can opt for an 8-foot buffet for a more grand statement.

Buffet tables are generally between 30 to 36 inches high. This height allows for easy access to food and tableware while creating a cohesive flow with your dining table.
