There are many different benefits that can be realized through the usage and placement of a chest of drawers in your bedroom.
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.
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.
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 additional furniture you need would be a good chest of drawers for every room of the house. Take for example these rooms we will discuss in this article. Take a look at how you can maximize your living space just by adding these furniture sets into a specific room in the house:
