Do you know that there are many usages of a chest of drawers in your home? You may take it for granted now, but a good set of drawers can take you a long way, from a disorganized and cluttered home, to a more organized, well-preserved and well-designed living space. How do you do this? Of course, this can only be done with a few additions to your home furniture.
There are many uses for chests of drawers in the home including for storing clothing and accessories, keeping toys organised and tidy, storing kitchen, living room and dining room equipment and of course everyone has a junk drawer.
A modern day Chest of Drawers will quite likely be made of something like Chipboard or MDF. Chipboard or particle board (called by different names in different countries), is made up of tiny chips of wood all glued together and pressed by machine into flat boards, usually 12mm or 18mm thick. These wood chips come from unused or unusable sized pieces of wood at the timber mill and also from recycling old wooden furniture. These boards can be veneered and are used in flat pack furniture, where the purchaser buys the furniture and has to assemble it by their self. Even buying ready made furniture from a store, there is a possibility that it has been delivered to the shop as flatpack and has been assembled by the staff.
Beyond space savings, a chest of drawers also provides wonderful internal storage options in and of themselves. Overall, these types of storage units come with generous space in which you can stow away a variety of different items, including garments and other clothing pieces of all types and of many different sizes.
I will personally recommend that you should check on the designs before making a purchase, because a check is required for the performance of the runners and the grasp of the handles and the style.
This particular style of chest of drawers is constructed on legs. Because of this design technique, there ends up being additional space below the chest of drawers itself that otherwise would have gone to waste.
