The Versatility of Credenza Desks: A Stylish and Functional Workspace Solution

A sideboard desk is perfect to combine with the rest of your   furniture in a home office, but is also a real treat in other work   environments.  It combines traditional   design and modern goods.

Confused about his quirky name?    Derived from the Italian for “belief” or “trust”,   sideboards were used by servants in the 16th century to taste the food and   drink reserved for important people in case they were   poisoned.

With such a crazy origin story, it’s no wonder that sideboards   have retained their fascinating aura despite the different uses (thank God   for that!).

Let’s make sure you choose a sideboard desk that does its modern   practical function and gives you extra storage space while still looking   fabulous.

What   type of sideboard is right for me?

Similar to traditional models, sideboard-desks come in many   different shapes and designs. Think about the space allotted   and the layout of that space to find the right one for   you:

  • A classic rectangular Shape is a   versatile option that easily fits into the smallest of spaces by holding the   desk against the wall and squeezing it in a convenient corner or between   other objects.  In addition, your new   sideboard desk can effortlessly blend in with the rest of the furniture.

  • L-shaped Desks are a functional   solution that offers a wider surface and works particularly well in two main   scenarios: either as space-optimizing corner models to make the most of the   smallest studios, or as larger designs that extend towards the center of the   room, defining a specific work area in one larger area.

  • U-shaped Sideboard-desks are a bulky   but functional solution for the largest of spaces where space is not an issue   and a wide work surface that practically surrounds you is your top   priority.

What   is the best material for a sideboard-desk?

Thats is quite easy Sideboard-desks are mostly made   of wood!  What to think   about is the finish that you should choose.

In addition to making sure that the rest of your existing   furniture is aiming for a cohesive look, keep in mind the   following:

  • Lighter wood like oak is a smart   choice for smaller spaces because of it makes them look   bigger;;

  • Walnut and others darker wood   surfaces Work especially well in large spaces or in   traditional settings and give them a more old-fashioned and intimate   feel.

  • Painted wood This makes it easier to   adapt to the room palette, even if you prefer unusual colors.

If you want to add a more modern element or create a more airy   room illusion, you can consider a wooden model with a Glass   plate.  However, you   need to be prepared for this Dust it and wipe it more   often.  Remember that a   Glass surface is not so strong and durable as a   wooden counterpart, especially if you plan to put very heavy objects on   top.
