The additional furniture you need would be a good chest of drawers for every room of the house. Take for example these rooms we will discuss in this article. Take a look at how you can maximize your living space just by adding these furniture sets into a specific room in the house:
Many people prefer to buy antiques for their own use, in order to get a good standard of manufacture for a reasonable price. Even furniture from the first half of the 20th century, before the use of particle board became widespread, can be of good quality and good value.
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.
Reasonably well made and expensive pieces have been produced over the years by top name manufacturers using these two types of material. However, when the purchaser tries to resell them, they find they have little resale value, if they can sell them at all.
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.
The Chest of Drawers is one of the most popular pieces of furniture, being able to store all manner of things.
