Chests of Drawers

A chest of drawers serves as a crucial household fixture, acting as a practical storage solution and a statement piece, tying a room together. Available in a variety of styles, materials, and sizes, choosing the right one warrants careful consideration. From sturdy oak or mahogany designs to more modern glass or metal versions, the choice entirely depends on your living space and the match with existing décor.

In our careful evaluation, there are four key factors to consider when buying a chest of drawers.

  • The size: Ensure the chest of drawers fits the allocated space in your room. Don’t forget to measure the width, depth, and height, including space for doors and drawers to open comfortably.
  • Build quality: While flat-pack furniture may be cost-effective, consider investing in a solid-wood chest for longevity. Inspect joints and runners for durability.
  • Style: While a shabby chic chest may be perfect for a country-style home, an urban-industrial metal design might be more suited for a metropolitan apartment.
  • Storage: Evaluate the storage capacity. Deeper, wider drawers will hold more clothes whilst choosing a chest with smaller drawers can be useful for organising smaller items.

Once you’ve decided on the building material and style, you’ll find chests come in several unique categories:

  • Tall or slim chests: An ideal choice for rooms with limited floor space.
  • Wide or horizontal chests: They give more surface area for display but take up more floor space.
  • Children’s chests: Often slightly smaller and may feature playful designs.

In short, selecting a chest of drawers requires careful evaluation of not just style and material, but also size, build quality, and storage requirements. With a bit of foresight, you can find a piece that’s both practical and aesthetically pleasing.
