Credenzas, or sideboards, are wonderful for their versatility in function, as their often narrow, long form provide plenty of options for storage and displaying decor.

Here you’ll find just a few ideas on the many uses for credenzas:

To use as an elegant vanity, pair a credenza with either a matching or contrasting mirror.  You may attach the mirror directly onto the credenza, or simply hang one upon your wall above it.

This charming credenza by Century Furniture with added shelving for storing and displaying treasured mementos, books and artwork, will lend any space a lovely and cozy warmth.

Credenzas with exquisite handcrafted marquetry such as on the Carneros Credenza by Savannah Collections above, makes for an elegant centerpiece within any luxury dining room.

Credenzas may also act as a serving buffet within your dining area, providing the space needed when the dining table is simply not enough.  As a buffet, a credenza can offer extra side surface and cupboard space while providing a beautiful platform for decorations.
