Differences Between a Buffet and a Server

Differences Between a Buffet and a Server

When it comes to furniture, there are plenty of storage and serving options you can purchase for your home. But as great as this selection can be, it can sometimes be confusing when you don’t understand the differences between certain furniture pieces. To help you out, here are a few key things you should know that can help you decide between buffets and servers.   Buffets — Buffets are essentially the dining room version of a sideboard. These storage pieces stand on relatively high legs, leaving the top-level surface at an easily accessible level. Quite often, buffet tops are used for setting out drinks or food while serving, while the lower cabinet area is used for storage. Some buffets use glass doors so the lower area can be utilized as a display case, rather than a typical storage cabinet.   Servers — Servers are very similar to buffets, however, they are usually smaller and more elegant in appearance. Servers have a smaller serving table that rests atop tall legs, with small cabinets or drawers underneath. Servers generally don’t have as much storage or display space as a buffet, but their elegant design makes them quite popular and useful for formal dining rooms.   At Swiss Valley Furniture, we offer a wide range of buffets and servers to match your dining room, which you can check out in our showroom or...

5 Benefits of a Kitchen Island

Of all the features you can add to your kitchen, fewer are more versatile (or flat-out useful) than kitchen islands. But what makes these kitchen features so great? Here’s a quick look at five key benefits of a kitchen island.   1.     Extra Storage Space — If a lack of cabinet space is a problem in your kitchen, an island can be the perfect storage solution. The inclusion of drawers, shelves, and cabinets provides all the storage space you need. 2.     Additional Seating — Whether they serve as an informal place to eat breakfast or provide extra seating space for when you have guests over, the additional seating area provided by kitchen islands is a major plus. 3.     More Amenities — From refrigerator drawers to extra cooking areas, the customization available for wooden islands makes it easy to add new amenities so you can get even more out of your kitchen. 4.     Kid-Friendly — Wooden islands are the perfect place for kids to have an after-school snack or work on homework while you’re preparing dinner—keeping them in sight, but not in the way of your cooking. 5.     A Stylish Center — Kitchen islands aren’t just practical—they’re stylish, too! These areas can further highlight your kitchen design or even serve as a display area for flowers or artwork, helping this room stand out anytime someone comes over to visit.   At Swiss Valley Furniture, we’re proud to offer a lineup of fully customizable wooden islands to perfectly match the needs of your kitchen. Come by our warehouse to check out our practical and stylish designs...

3 Kitchen Accessories That Will Instantly Make Your Life Easier

For many families, the kitchen is one of the busiest parts of the home. Whether you’re packing the kids’ lunches for the next day of school or you’re prepping a family dinner, there’s a lot of work that goes into preparing and serving food in your kitchen! Thankfully, there are a few kitchen accessories that can help ease the burden of these household chores.   Breadbox: There’s nothing worse than finding out your bread has gone stale or moldy just when you’re about to start making a sandwich. Breadboxes are key kitchen accessories that help prolong the life of your bread (especially if you bake your own bread). By keeping your bread at room temperature and allowing for a reasonable flow of air, a breadbox will help bread stay fresh for much longer.   Lazy Susan: Serving food at the dinner table—or even trying to gain access to all your spices and cooking supplies—can sometimes be a cumbersome task. Not so with a Lazy Susan! These wooden kitchen accessories rotate with ease, making it easier than ever to access those hard-to-reach spices or serve dinner, helping you save time and reduce the risk of potential spills.   Paper Towel Shelf: Kitchen cleanup can be a pain, especially if your cleaning supplies are hard to find or keep rolling away! A paper towel shelf provides a sturdy storage location for your kitchen cleaning supplies so you’ll never need to worry about losing track of them during cleanup.   At Swiss Valley Furniture, we’re proud to offer these and other wooden kitchen accessories that can help make your life a little...
Stain Options We Offer

Stain Options We Offer

When it comes to producing great-looking wood furniture, selecting the right stain to accompany your chosen type of wood is key to getting the best results. At Swiss Valley Furniture, our great selection of wood stains ensures that each of our handmade products will look exactly how you want.   While we offer several varieties of natural stains, dark stains, and other finishing options, it is important to note that the type of stain you should apply varies depending on the type of wood that was used to construct the furniture. For example, while a dark stain like Acres is a great choice for covering up color variation in brown maple pieces, white pine is likely to become blotchy if a dark stain is applied. Because of this, our available stain options vary by wood type so as to preserve a quality appearance for your wood.   With multiple stain options available for oak, brown maple, cherry, and other types of wood, we’re confident that each of our wood furniture products will provide a great look for your home. Whether you simply wish to accentuate your wood’s natural appearance or go for a darker, more even tone, our wood stain options will help your furniture look its...
