In addition to space savings within the room, a plentiful space within the drawers themselves, the chest of drawers options is also stylish and durable. You will not be embarrassed to have a chest of drawers in your bedroom. Rather than being unsightly, they actually add a nice feel and look to the room. The chest of drawers also are well constructed and are built truly to stand the test of time.
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 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.
Matching European style living room furniture pieces like a mirror with a pretty carving of a basket of flowers and a three-drawer serpentine chest can look great in a country-inspired home or Venetian-inspired residence.
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.
