Rustic sideboard buffet are useful for serving a crowd, but when they are empty they look bottom heavy as if only the bottom half of the wall is decorated. A dining room with a low buffet and a tall china cabinet will look very unbalanced if the area above the buffet is simply a blank wall extension. A mirror is a good choice for the wall above the buffet or dresser. It will make the room look bigger and reflect your food and decorations when it entertains.
Hang a mirror or a framed photo above the buffet. Add small pictures as desired. In a formal dining room, make a symmetrical arrangement, placing photographs in coincidence of frames on each side of the mirror. Place a couple of high lamps on each side of the buffet for a balanced and formal look. In a casual room, use a lamp and arrangement with a vase on the other side of the balance.

Add a large bowl to the center of your buffet. This bowl can be the centerpiece on your dining table when you use the buffet for food. Fill the cup with an arrangement of flowers or vegetation to match your color scheme. Add one or two small pieces that serve as a sugar bowl and a small tray.
