If you own an Antique Chest of Drawers you will notice a vast difference between these and modern day produced furniture. The Antique Chest of Drawers will be made either of Mahogany, Oak, Walnut, Pine or some other good quality wood. Even if it is not one of the higher quality woods it will at least be made of real wood.
This particular style of chest of drawers is constructed on legs. Because of this design technique, there ends up being additional space below the chest of drawers itself that otherwise would have gone to waste.
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.
I will personally recommend that you should check on the designs before making a purchase, because a check is required for the performance of the runners and the grasp of the handles and the style.
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.
There are many different benefits that can be realized through the usage and placement of a chest of drawers in your bedroom.
