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.
You can tell a lot about the personality & character of the owners of a house by the furniture pieces they choose. When it comes to living room accents, for example, there are pieces that radiate glamour that speak volumes about the taste and interests of the occupants of the house. Take for instance a chest of drawers with convex bow front design and stylized tassel-motif hardware with tapered legs. The person who purchased such a living room accent can surely appreciate beauty and style. On the other hand, individuals who are passionate about art and have eclectic tastes may opt for a maple highboy reminiscent of the Chippendale era or a Greek revival style of chest. A bow front chest of drawers in lustrous mahogany that captures the grandeur of the 18th century master craftsmen is a perfect option for a woman with an eye for superb detailing. Itll also add a look of timeless elegance to a contemporary living room. With a low rectangular coffee table and pediment mirror of similar material in the same room, the look can be fabulous.
Bedroom chests can vary in size and style but usually have a combination of smaller drawers sat over larger drawers. Most choices of bedroom chest will be known as, for example a 2 over 4 chest or a 3 over 4 chest. When purchasing a chest keep this in mind as the top layer of drawers will usually be smaller, if you require all of the drawers to be the same size aim towards getting a chest that is just a 4 drawer chest. Smaller drawers can be useful for socks, underwear, rolled up ties and even make-up and accessories. There are also a wide variety of drawer separators on the market now designed specifically for organising smaller items within one drawer.
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.
2. Childrens room - This is one of the best place to put chest of drawers. Why? Kids tend to be a little cluttered with all their toys, video games and board games lying around. However, with a good set of drawers, easy storage for all these stuff is just within your reach. At the same time, it is also accessible for you to take them out whenever your kids need to play with them again.
The junk drawer can appear in any of the above mentioned types of chest whether it is in the kitchen or bedroom you will often find the same types of items in them from household to household. These may include half used boxes of matches, safety pins, homemade gifts or cards from the kids, pens that no longer work and a deck of playing cards. If none of this sounds familiar you are a much organised person. If it does sound familiar there is a strong chance you have no idea what is currently in your junk drawer but you know they are items you simply cannot throw away. Having worked for a furniture company in past life we once had a chest returned and replaced due to some damage only to discover the customer had not emptied out their junk drawer before returning it. When the customer was informed it was decided we had no other choice but to box up the contents of the drawer and return them as they simply could not recall what was in there and if it was important.
