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.
I myself now buy online or from the local auction house in order to get a well made piece of furniture at a good price.
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.
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.
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.
Plastic chest of drawers are a must need for the houses, since it has the potential to store lots of stuff and also it gives a really fine look to the room. Chest Drawers also helps in giving an organized look to the rooms. Generally these are used in bedrooms to store the daily use stuff. one has to make sure that you buy the one which completely satisfies the requirement.
