You can't go wrong with stocubo sideboards
Always by your side – stocubo sideboards
The forerunner of the sideboard as we know it today is the chest-of-drawers. This mostly rather low-set box furniture, often equipped with drawers, already existed in the Middle Ages. Its higher and more representative counterpart was the display case.
Less splendid than the old chests-of-drawers and showcases, but all the more refined and flexible, sideboards can nowadays be found almost everywhere.
Sideboards are amongst the most practical and versatile pieces of furniture. Modern sideboards are often very wide. This creates a lot of storage space, even if it is a lowboard. This of course also applies to highboards. This also makes them an ideal piece of furniture for narrow passageways or a narrow hallway.
A correspondingly stacked lowboard can be used, for example, to store shoes, and also as a seat for putting shoes on.
The flexibility increases again when the sideboard is a shelf system Our boards and shelves consist of individual cubes that can be put together and dismantled again in a flash. If your living requirements change, you can expand your sideboard or divide it into several smaller pieces of furniture.

Sideboards allow for versatility
A sideboard becomes really versatile only with drawers and slide-in modules. The whole board doesn't have to be closed like a cabinet. With stocubo it is possible to fit individual parts of a sideboard with doors, slide-in modules or drawers, while leaving others open. Open cubes are also recommended as an indirect light source, with LED lighting on the inside to create a cosy atmosphere.
The plain design is in white. But that doesn't have to be the case with stocubo: doors and drawers are available in an extensive range of pastel shades, and are increasingly outstripping white in popularity.
Used as an distinctive feature, they are eye-catching and, to a certain extent, also reflect the personality of the sideboard owner. Here are some tips for the most common areas of application of our all-rounder:
Crumple zone in the hallway
Furniture in the hallway has to withstand special requirements and meet various (organizational) interests. As with the classic chest of drawers, drawers are required to provide the right storage space for keys and all kinds of odds and ends.
In addition, our desk set (under accessories in the online shop) can be used to remind those who are less tidy. There is space for everyday items such as hats or scarves in open compartments. There is also the option of cut edges in black instead of the natural tone, which creates perspective, especially in a long hallway.
Variable in the living room
A mix of open and closed elements is recommended in the living room. This allows a conscious presentation of things that one likes to show, such as the vinyl collection that has been put together with a lot of love. At the same time, private items can be stowed away from prying eyes. A combination of highboard and lowboard is particularly conceivable here in order to create space for a TV board. A TV lowboard can be framed by two highboards, for example.
More than a sideboard in the dining room
A sideboard can also do more than just an inconspicuous wall shelf in the dining room. As a free-standing sideboard, it divides the room with style and lets the buffet speak for itself. Or as a modern synthesis of wall cupboard or showcase: A free wall area is created above a lowboard that can be used creatively - for example for individual cubes as hanging elements Carafe a skilful appearance). Cubes can be included in a highboard at eye and handle height with the Wine slide-in module- or the Champagne slide-in module .
Frequently asked questions about our sideboards
How are stocubo record shelves set up?
As for all of our shelves, the same applies to our sideboards: You only need the included spirit level and the Allen key to align the base plates correctly. Then simply stack the shelf cubes on top of each other and fix them with the connecting clamps and anti-slip pads. It really couldn't be easier!
Do I have to anchor the sideboard in the wall?
At this point we can give you the answer you want: No, it is usually not necessary to attach standing sideboards to the wall! Exception: very high highboards that stand on extremely uneven floors. Here you should stabilize the top row with L-brackets from the hardware store.
How resilient are the stocubo boards?
Our shelves are made of break-proof and bend-resistant wood - common shelf contents can be placed in or on top of them as you wish. Lowboards therefore generally stabilize themselves through the load. When highboards are loaded, our connecting brackets should definitely come into play, either as a visible design element on the front or invisible on the back. For heavier objects, it is advisable to distribute the load over several cubes standing next to each other. For that extra portion of hold, we also recommend our anti-slip pads made from Yupo-Tako suction cup film. The new anti-slip pads are available in a set of 4 per cube and the application is very easy: peel off the protective film on the back, put a pad on each corner, put the next cube on it, clip and that's it!
Do the cubes have a soft close function?
With the innovative soft-close doors for our modular shelf cubes, we meet many (customer) requests. We promise a controlled braking of the door when closing - without banging, noise and trapped fingers.
What is the difference between a sideboard and a chest of drawers?
Traditionally, a chest of drawers consists of drawers, whereas a sideboard usually has shelves. Nevertheless, the two terms are often used synonymously, since a sideboard is ultimately a modern form of chest of drawers. With the shelves from stocubo, such boundaries are blurred anyway - through the modularity of the system and the creativity of our customers!
Which cubes are suitable for a lowboard, which for a highboard?
Here you have to find the right solution for yourself: The sides of the 1: 1 classic cube are each 35.6 centimeters long. The 2: 1 Cube: has a width (or height, whatever you want) of 71.2 centimeters. The 2: 3 cube has a height of 23.7 centimeters. All cubes are available in full and half depth and can also be placed on end. So that you can enjoy your new stocubo sideboard for a long time, we do not recommend using 2: 1 cubes in the lower row of your shelf, as these modules can sag over time due to the long, cantilevered shelves above.
What delivery times do I have to expect?
Our delivery time is currently around 6 weeks. We produce all modules by hand in a small space. For this reason, we have to bundle certain orders, such as the modules with black and white edges and our children's kitchens, which can lead to longer delivery times (6-8 weeks). Fast delivery is important to us. However, we ask you to bear in mind that we do not have a warehouse and that the cubes still have to be manufactured after receiving your order - centimeter by centimeter!
Are stocubo sideboards sustainable?
We rely on high-quality material, more precisely: on wood from PEFC-certified German forests. From this we build shelves in a very detail-oriented and low-emission manufacturing process. We also work with climate-neutral shipping companies.
