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.
3. Kitchen - Are you looking for a place to store your fine china and kitchen utensils? Your chest of drawers will do the trick. You can put anything you want and be able to organize your kitchen.
Another nice feature of the chest of drawers is the fact that they are lightweight. On your own you actually will be able to position and then reposition the chest of drawers wherever you might desire from time to time. Like many people, you desire to make adjustments and changes to the layout of the furnishings in your home, including in your bedroom. Once again, you do not need to engage assistance in order to redo furniture your arrangements.
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 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.
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.
