The chest of drawers is an exotic furniture item that has never gone out of style, thanks to its many benefits. It saves space, offering plenty of storage. Neat freaks also love how different drawers lend themselves to organising items into separate compartments. Dressers can also serve several functions, such as a TV stand, dressing table or bedside table. But, practical considerations aside, they also add a whole lot of character to a room. After the bed, they really can be the focal point of your sleeping quarters. They can be the base for a display of plants, photo frames, ornaments, accessories and candles. For these reasons, a chest of drawers should be at the top of your list when buying your beds and bedroom furniture.
Nowadays, they also come in a variety of styles and are made from many different types of material. So, how to pick the perfect chest of drawers for your bedroom?
First, consider your bedroom décor. In a minimalist space, an understated Scandinavian-style dresser made from wood without any embellishments or patterns will work well. Prefer something more ornate? Go for a standout piece featuring decorative inlays. If you’re going for contemporary chic, why not pick a stainless-steel model, with a smoky mirrored finish?
Next, consider the purpose of the piece. For example, if you need to store bed linen in it, you’ll want a larger model. But if it’ll be your dressing table, having drawers of varying sizes to store your accessories (jewellery, hairclips, cosmetics) separately might be more useful.
