Keep it simple.
It’s essential to ensure your sideboard isn’t too packed by other items of furniture. Placing a wardrobe immediately beside your sideboard will overshadow it as it’s utterly too tall – but if you are pushed for space and require to maximise storage, then a somewhat taller chest of drawers alongside your sideboard will add an impressive height without being too oppressive.
