If there’s one piece of furniture that’s known for its versatility, it’s got to be the buffet. While many are struggling trying to define it in the world of furniture, finding that to be its greatest drawback, I actually consider it to be its greatest quality; a buffet can be anything you want it to be! I’m sure you, reader, have found yourself in a situation of wanting to inject your home with a bit of change yet your budget brought you back to reality you that can’t afford to get a makeover.
Well, you should be happy to know a buffet can be the piece your home was missing to make it feel homely, stylish and functional at the same time and best of all is there are many models of modern buffet furniture to choose from. I don’t only refer to size but materials, ranging from sturdy natural oak to lacquer veneer, design (e.g. short legs or buffet that goes to the floor) and colours too, created to match a home regardless of what the style may be – there’s a little bit of something for everyone’s taste!
One characteristic modern buffet furniture is famous for is storage and it’s thanks to this it can be turned into a multi-purpose piece. Primarily, buffets are used in the kitchen for storing all the utensils, towels, glassware, while the top could serve as a great coutertop for preparing meals, chopping ingredients. In case you’re great with DIY projects, you could easily turn a buffet into your customised island; sounds cool, right? This isn’t all there is to buffets, though! If you ever grow tired of them in the kitchen, they’re perfect as dining room pieces too where apart from storage for drinks they could be used for décor, showcasing your beautiful china, for instance. Depending on the model itself, a buffet can go well with living room design too in which case it would be called a sideboard or cabinet, proving there’s no difference between the terms really.
Other than hiding all the unsightly paperwork, pile of devices, magazines and books, it would be great as an entertainment unit, providing enough space for the TV and even some space left for decorating items. Deciding to add some of its flair in your entryway, you wouldn’t be disappointed by the outcome because a buffet can be the piece you need for grand entrance, appealing with its seamless beauty and the way it helps keep things nice and tidy. Finding out how multifaceted this furniture piece is I wouldn’t be surprised if you already started imagining how it would fit in with your home.
