There are many different benefits that can be realized through the usage and placement of a chest of drawers in your bedroom.
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.
You can tell a lot about the personality & character of the owners of a house by the furniture pieces they choose. When it comes to living room accents, for example, there are pieces that radiate glamour that speak volumes about the taste and interests of the occupants of the house. Take for instance a chest of drawers with convex bow front design and stylized tassel-motif hardware with tapered legs. The person who purchased such a living room accent can surely appreciate beauty and style. On the other hand, individuals who are passionate about art and have eclectic tastes may opt for a maple highboy reminiscent of the Chippendale era or a Greek revival style of chest. A bow front chest of drawers in lustrous mahogany that captures the grandeur of the 18th century master craftsmen is a perfect option for a woman with an eye for superb detailing. Itll also add a look of timeless elegance to a contemporary living room. With a low rectangular coffee table and pediment mirror of similar material in the same room, the look can be fabulous.
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.
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.
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.
