Chest / April 27, 2017 / Roesia Merle
Beyond space savings a chest of drawers also provides wonderful internal storage options in and of themselves. Overall these types of storage units come with generous space in which you can stow away a variety of different items including garments and other clothing pieces of all types and of many different sizes.
The way that a chest of drawers first came about was back in medieval times and Europe. How it was designed was just a box that sat on the floor. Over time someone added a drawer to the bottom and now here we are. It is sometimes common for many homeowners to have an older set of Oak chest of drawers that has been handed down from generation to generation. The reason that this is possible is because the oak is such a strong wood that will last for years if it is properly cared for.
The first point to assess is the type of wood which you prefer to have with the main choices being that of oak or pine due to the vast selection that are available to choose from. Other woods which include the likes of beech and mahogany are also available to purchase but with a far restricted range of options. With pine wood you will find that a sense of simplistic style and homely warmth will be added to a room whereas with oak a timeless classic look is created. Both are highly desirable effects the choice of which depends entirely on personal preference.
