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.
3. Kitchen - Are you looking for a place to store your fine china and kitchen utensils? Your chest of drawers will do the trick. You can put anything you want and be able to organize your kitchen.
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.
Reasonably well made and expensive pieces have been produced over the years by top name manufacturers using these two types of material. However, when the purchaser tries to resell them, they find they have little resale value, if they can sell them at all.
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.
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.
