In the kitchen, dining room and living room most drawers that are in use are from a sideboard or dresser however with such a huge choice of chests drawers now available there are many that are suitable for these rooms. A chest could be used to store place mats, cutlery, instruction manuals or recipe books. Contemporary designers are now building modern and often quite funky chest suitable for any room of the house. Some of the designs seen include stacking the drawers at an odd angle and incorporating bright colours so that the chest becomes a stand out piece of furniture. Even with the various quirks each chest remains a functional piece of home furniture.
The amount of labour required is also very costly, and modern hand made pieces reflect this in their price. The whole way an antique or hand made piece is constructed is totally different from the modern particle board unit with their plastic and metal fixings that keep the thing together. In an antique unit, the joints are accurately hand cut and glued or pegged together which results in a much stronger joint. The whole unit is much stronger, longer lasting and more visually pleasing.
MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) is something the same again, only the particles are smaller. This allows more detail to be machined into the finished product and quite ornate pieces can be produced which are then painted or veneered.
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 remember having problems with a modern made chest of drawers of the particle board construction. The drawers kept sticking and jumping out of the runners, and when I eventually managed to open them they would not close, then the flimsy bottoms fell out of the drawers as well. After that annoying experience I decided to only buy good quality chests of drawers.
If you are like many people, you oftentimes find yourself trying to make the most of a smaller amount of living space. This can particularly be true when it comes to maximizing the available space in your bedroom.
