Help Choosing Sideboard/Buffet Table

November 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hey guys! I need help choosing a sideboard/buffet table for my narrow dining room. I recently purchased these six chairs and I have a simple dark brown table with a greyish-colored stone top that will soon be delivered. However, I cannot figure out where to store my china. I like the ones in the photos below but I don't know if they will clash. What do you think?

Here are the sideboard/buffet tables I was referring to earlier:

I really don't think you have enough room for a buffet from what the photo's show. How much room do you have once you pull the chair out like someone would be sitting in it?

Margo, you're right. Since the room is so narrow I was thinking about putting the sideboard/buffet table on the right side of the room (see the picture with deeper corner).

I see, what is the clearance with the chair pulled out and will there be any issue with the door?

Get Eco disposable plates and put a big fish tank instead. Dining room eating can be so boring!

I would wait until you got the table. Then you will know exactly how much room you have. Your choices are lovely

Both are attractive, and Margo has a good point; this comes down to dimensions. Tape out your table, allow 42" around, and if there is still room, go for whichever you like. Happy Houzzing.

Have you thought about a built-in in the space you have?? You could then make it just wide enough to put your china, but yet still kinda hug the wall. I think an oversized piece of artwork on the long wall would be fab!!

It's a bit difficult to see the overall size of the room. From the photos, it seems that you would have enough space in that nook to have a cabinet. That would have to have the same depth as the nook itself (no larger than that). Another thing is the chandelier...it seems to be off-centered...centered relative to the widest part of your room, which is from the nook wall to the opposite wall (hope that makes sense). If that is the case, you might want to re-center that chandelier. If you want to have some kind of cabinet in that nook, you do need to move the table a bit more towards that long wall.

Also make sure you lower the chandelier, it's way too high. :) Hanging it 30 to 36 inches above the dining table is ideal!
