The chest of drawers is undoubtedly one of the best pieces of bedroom furniture. It isn’t regarded as an essential need in the bedroom, but sometimes it’s hard to do without it. It accommodates clothing, bedding, accessories, and more and provides lots of storage space. It can even serve as a bedside table, dresser, changing table that makes it truly universal and multi-functional.
If you have a chest of drawers in your bedroom but it seems to be sort of messy and unorganized you may want to consider clearing out some of the clutter so you can get a new one that will help you store more efficiently. There are some very easy ways to clear out the old drawers and keep your new one looking great and clean. One of the first things you can do is remove everything from the drawers. Wipe down the surface of the drawers with a soft damp cloth to remove any dust and dirt and then place all of your unused drawers in an old bucket or trash can for much better storage and organization.
There are some cons to having an old-fashioned chest of drawers and one is that it can be rather unsightly. If you have light color or white wood, this can be very easy because the wood tends to stay bright when left unfinished and can add a little character to the room. Having wood veneers on the doors also makes them seem a bit outdated, but if you’re on a budget you can paint over them with white paint. Another disadvantage of wood drawers is they tend to break easily if there’s a strong impact on the bottom or sides. It’s important that you don’t place anything too heavy on the bottom of the drawer since this can cause it to break and shift in its structure which can make it extremely dangerous for your children.
The next popular style of chest of drawers comes in either a sliding drawer dresser or a mirrored one. A sliding dresser is very easy to assemble since all you have to do is attach two long pieces of wood together. They usually come in either three inches wide or five inches wide designs and you’ll need between twenty-five and thirty-five inches of depth for each drawer depending on the size. Mirrored units are available in both three and five inch sizes and they usually come in a choice of three inches or five-inch widths. You may want a combination dresser which features a sliding drawer dresser and a mirrored one in case you’ve got a larger space to work with.
Both of these styles of dressers provide ample storage space for all of your clothes and accessories. You can choose to have a single chest of drawers or double which is ideal if you have a small bedroom or bathroom where you need to have several dressers. Some people, who don’t have a lot of room to spare, even opt for two-person dressers instead of the typical three-person units. Regardless of whether you opt for a single or double chest of drawers, you’ll be able to find dressers of every imaginable size, style, and design so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for.
If you need to save space, but you also want to have the convenience of a chest of drawers, then a furniture combo set is the perfect option for you. A furniture combo set basically consists of two or more pieces of bedroom furniture with one being a chest of drawers. Furniture combo sets are becoming more popular than ever and you won’t have any trouble finding one that’s perfect for your bedroom. Since most furniture combos consist of a bed and a dresser, you can expect to save quite a bit of money by purchasing a bedroom furniture combo set rather than individually purchasing each piece. Additionally, since all of the pieces usually come in similar styles, you can get a great deal on a good piece and then purchase other matching pieces to complete the room.
