I remember having problems with a modern made chest of drawers of the particle board construction. The drawers kept sticking and jumping out of the runners, and when I eventually managed to open them they would not close, then the flimsy bottoms fell out of the drawers as well. After that annoying experience I decided to only buy good quality chests of drawers.
If you are like many people, you oftentimes find yourself trying to make the most of a smaller amount of living space. This can particularly be true when it comes to maximizing the available space in your bedroom.
It is highly important to figure out a place where this plastic chest of drawers will go in your house and thus taking a measurement for the same would be a great idea. It is highly advisable to put the plastic drawers away from the radiator and fireplaces. It is better to go for the designs that have an adjustable feet, which can probably help in getting the right fit on the floor and the wobbling can be easily taken care off, rather than putting a wedge under the table.
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.
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.
2. Childrens room - This is one of the best place to put chest of drawers. Why? Kids tend to be a little cluttered with all their toys, video games and board games lying around. However, with a good set of drawers, easy storage for all these stuff is just within your reach. At the same time, it is also accessible for you to take them out whenever your kids need to play with them again.
