If you think you can manage just fine without a sideboard you should try living with one for a couple of weeks and you’ll wonder how you ever managed? It’s amazing how much cutlery and crockery you have to handle during a typical week and, it’s fair to say, your current method of storage isn’t going to be so efficient.
Also, if you think you don’t have the room, there are plenty of smaller size, 2 door options that will fit the smallest of dining areas. These units start at just £129 too, so there are plenty of budget options at your disposal.
