Tips on Buying a Chest of Drawers Everything you need to know to find the best chest of drawers for your home If youre looking for bedroom storage, a chest of drawers can meet most of your needs - we have put together a list of things to consider before you buy Choosing a chest of drawer design Its a good idea to have a basic idea in mind before you start looking for a chest of drawers, otherwise you could find yourself changing your mind with every model you see and coming home empty handed. Think about whether you want the chest of drawers to be tall and narrow, or short and wide, and whether you need several small drawers at the top, or just a serious of large drawers. Its also worth thinking about how deep the drawers need to be Where will the chest of drawers go If the chest of drawers is going in a particular space, remember to make a note of the measurements to make sure it will fit when you get it home. If you are buying a wooden piece of furniture, remember it will need to be positioned away from any radiators or working fireplaces, as the heat can dry out and warp the wood. Some chest of drawers designs offer adjustable feet, which is worth considering if you have uneven flooring, as it eliminates the need to wedge something under one corner to stop it from wobbling. Chest of drawers design features If you are buying your chest of drawers on the internet, you should still try to visit a showroom and have a good look at them. There are certain design features that you should check, such as whether the drawers open smoothly on their runners and how easy it is to grasp the handles - practicality outweighs style at this stage, so if it seems like the drawers might be difficult to open when they are full, you will probably want to start your search again. Check the quality of the chest of drawers Obviously, the chest of drawers you buy should feel solid and strong, but you can also check that it is made well by looking at the drawers. Familiarise yourself with what dovetail joints look like, and check that they have been used to hold the front and sides of the drawers together. And lastly, run your hands over the insides of the drawers to make sure there are no rough areas that could snag clothing.
A Chest of Drawers in the Home 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. Bedroom chests can vary in size and style but usually have a combination of smaller drawers sat over larger drawers. Most choices of bedroom chest will be known as, for example a 2 over 4 chest or a 3 over 4 chest. When purchasing a chest keep this in mind as the top layer of drawers will usually be smaller, if you require all of the drawers to be the same size aim towards getting a chest that is just a "4 drawer chest". Smaller drawers can be useful for socks, underwear, rolled up ties and even make-up and accessories. There are also a wide variety of drawer separators on the market now designed specifically for organising smaller items within one drawer. In the kitchen, dining room and living room most drawers that are in use are from a sideboard or dresser however with such a huge choice of chests drawers now available there are many that are suitable for these rooms. A chest could be used to store place mats, cutlery, instruction manuals or recipe books. Contemporary designers are now building modern and often quite funky chest suitable for any room of the house. Some of the designs seen include stacking the drawers at an odd angle and incorporating bright colours so that the chest becomes a stand out piece of furniture. Even with the various quirks each chest remains a functional piece of home furniture. 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. The junk drawer can appear in any of the above mentioned types of chest whether it is in the kitchen or bedroom you will often find the same types of items in them from household to household. These may include half used boxes of matches, safety pins, homemade gifts or cards from the kids, pens that no longer work and a deck of playing cards. If none of this sounds familiar you are a much organised person. If it does sound familiar there is a strong chance you have no idea what is currently in your "junk drawer" but you know they are items you simply cannot throw away. Having worked for a furniture company in past life we once had a chest returned and replaced due to some damage only to discover the customer had not emptied out their junk drawer before returning it. When the customer was informed it was decided we had no other choice but to box up the contents of the drawer and return them as they simply could not recall what was in there and if it was important.
