Many people prefer to buy antiques for their own use, in order to get a good standard of manufacture for a reasonable price. Even furniture from the first half of the 20th century, before the use of particle board became widespread, can be of good quality and good value.
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.
Beyond space savings, a chest of drawers also provides wonderful internal storage options in and of themselves. Overall, these types of storage units come with generous space in which you can stow away a variety of different items, including garments and other clothing pieces of all types and of many different sizes.
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.
2. Childrens room - This is one of the best place to put chest of drawers. Why? Kids tend to be a little cluttered with all their toys, video games and board games lying around. However, with a good set of drawers, easy storage for all these stuff is just within your reach. At the same time, it is also accessible for you to take them out whenever your kids need to play with them again.
Just because there are children or grandchildren in the house does not mean there has to be an unsightly toy box in amongst the carefully chosen furniture. Incorporating a toy chest of drawers into the room will keep the toys neat and orderly (even if it is the adults who end up putting them away) and easy to find when the search begins for that favourite toy. Many chests are designed with very deep drawers, in particular at the bottom of the chest ideal for toys and games, with varying depths of drawers as you move up the chest the top level drawers could be used for crayons and paper.
