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.
Choosing a right kind of plastic chest drawers is really important, as the person should have a clear idea about the space available in the room where these chests will be placed. Another important aspect could be the decision, that whether one would like to buy a large drawer unit or a unit with number of small drawers. It is also important to think over the pattern of drawers that one is looking forward to purchase.
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.
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.
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.
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.
