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.
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.
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.
