A chest of drawers, known as (in North American English), a wardrobe or a dresser, is a form of closets (a large multi-purpose furniture item) which has many vertical, horizontal, or two-way drawers usually stacked one above the other, in either a drawer-block style arrangement or in a box style. The chest of drawers is most commonly found in homes where there are several uses of jewelry, antiques, or clothes; however, this piece of furniture can be found in many commercial establishments. They can be made of wood, metal, or plastic, and they can be solid built or semi-solid. This furniture item is also referred to as “cases,” ” chests,” or “wicks,” and they can be placed on a shelf, on a desk, on a bed, in a closet, or any other room where a lot of free space is needed for storage. In addition to their use as furniture storage, they are excellent as display containers and as decorative accents.
While the name “chester drawers” evokes thoughts of traditional dressers of bygone days, modern day Chester furniture manufacturers have designed their products to be much more up to date. Chests of today are available in a wide variety of styles, including fully lined drawers, which are great for displaying garments or collections. They can also be purchased in solid wood or with a wood veneer finish. They are also available in different widths, such as the Small, Medium, and Large drawers.
Chest of drawers is traditionally designed to keep clothing or items of bedroom furniture safe and secure, and dressers can be quite useful in these regards. While dressers in a home are usually used for storing only dresses, today’s dressers come in a variety of styles which allow them to be used for a variety of storage needs. The most common being clothes, hats, shoes, belts, handbags, or anything else which needs to fit into a small space.
When shopping for a chest of drawers there are several things to consider. First and foremost are the amount of space you have available for storing your furniture. If you do not have a large space for a full sized dresser, then smaller dressers will be more than sufficient. Many people opt for a half chest dresser which is quite small but at the same time will still allow for most of the items in the dresser. Finally, if space is limited and you are looking for additional drawer storage, a side table will be an ideal addition to a chest of drawers.
In order to determine the size of the drawers that you need, you should first measure the exact size of the opening where the doors will open. This will ensure that the chest of drawers will fit inside appropriately. Most furniture stores carry a range of different sized drawers and will usually help you determine the correct size directly on their websites. If they are unable to assist you with sizing you should ask the customer care personnel at the store for their assistance.
When selecting a chest of drawers for your bedroom or office, it is important that you take the functionality into consideration. Are you looking for a high chest to store items such as China, children’s clothes, or even office supplies? If so you will need to select a style that compliments the other furniture in the room. While a low chest of drawers can enhance an empty corner by adding a feature wall, it is important to remember that the drawers themselves will probably take up quite a bit of floor space. If the room is small, for example, a medium chest of drawers may be the best option as it will fit well alongside of other pieces of furniture.
