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.
For example, a chest of drawers truly does maximize the amount of available space that will be available after the placement of that furniture piece.
In addition to space savings within the room, a plentiful space within the drawers themselves, the chest of drawers options is also stylish and durable. You will not be embarrassed to have a chest of drawers in your bedroom. Rather than being unsightly, they actually add a nice feel and look to the room. The chest of drawers also are well constructed and are built truly to stand the test of time.
Just because there are children or grandchildren in the house does not mean there has to be an unsightly toy box in amongst the carefully chosen furniture. Incorporating a toy chest of drawers into the room will keep the toys neat and orderly (even if it is the adults who end up putting them away) and easy to find when the search begins for that favourite toy. Many chests are designed with very deep drawers, in particular at the bottom of the chest ideal for toys and games, with varying depths of drawers as you move up the chest the top level drawers could be used for crayons and paper.
One of the most significant problems when it comes to dealing with limited space in a bedroom is working to find furniture items that expand or maximize the amount of available space rather than causing the room to feel closed and cluttered. In this regard, in order to improve the available space present and available in your bedroom, you will want to take a close look at a practical chest of drawers.
