A Guide To Choosing A Chest Of Drawers

Everybody prefers a neat and harmonious bedroom space that oozes calm. Having ample space is key for this to be practical and usually, this involves ridding the room of clutter meaning that clothes should be properly stored. It is, therefore, essential to invest in a chest of drawers. They come in a variety of styles and configurations and so it is important to know what you are looking for when shopping for the perfect one.

Drawer Styles

There are numerous styles to choose from depending on your needs, preferences, or available floor space, Also, depending on your interior design style, either mid-century, vintage, or Feng Shui there are furniture retailers who can customize to tailor it to your specifications. Some of the core factors to consider include:

  • Floor space available
  • Interior design style
  • The material used to make drawers
  • Required storage space

Floor Space Available

Usually, when picking a chest of drawers, one has to take into account the floor space available. The aim is to have a lot of storage while taking up minimal floor space. A compact or narrow-base style might stack more drawers and cover less floor space while a wide-base style might have fewer drawers with more storage space but cover more floor space.

Interior Design Style

If you opt for a vintage style setting as your preferred interior design decor then the drawer style should mirror or compliment this. Otherwise, picking a drawer with an ultramodern look might negatively impact the visual attractiveness of the room.

The Material Used To Make The Drawers

Exotic materials such as mahogany or teak wood have a huge impact on the room space. Drawers made from such wood are pricey and they exude class. A garnished finish on your drawer that has been crafted from such materials will work well in both traditional and contemporary interiors.

Required Storage Space

Some individuals have more garments than others and hence might need more storage space. Such a necessity warrants a different design to make it possible to accommodate the various fashion items in your possession. For instance, a 2 over 3 style of drawers can ensure that two upper deck drawers can be used to store inner garments while the remaining three at the base can hold the cardigans and official wear.
