Chest of drawers, commonly known as (in North American English), a bedroom dresser or a chest of drawers, is a kind of closet (a functional piece of furniture) which usually has many parallel, high-mounted drawers usually stacked one above the other. These are usually made of wood and are a great addition to any bedroom as they make it easy to keep clothing and linens in place. Most chests of drawers feature either an open design or a closed design. The most popular version of this type of chest of drawers features a sliding door opening which is ideal for use with a dresser. However, the more expensive chests of drawers also feature closable, closed drawers.
When decorating a bedroom for children, it is advisable to use more neutral colors and decorate the chest of drawers in a way that allows children to use it without creating clutter. Alternatively, you could decorate the chest of drawers as part of a larger children’s bedroom featuring all-colored bedrooms. In this case, you would probably want to keep the chest of drawers light in color and also have it include a toy chest that features colorful items. As an alternative, you could choose to use black dressers or even white chest of drawers as an accent piece to the bedroom.
There are several different styles of chest of drawers that you can choose from. Firstly, if you want to go with a traditional style, then you have the option of selecting a chest of drawers that features a top-mounted mirror. A typical chest of drawers will also feature four or five drawer shelves that can be used to store dresses, suits and other similar clothing items. The interior design of these kinds of chests of drawers can either be very intricate or very simplistic. If you opt for one with more complex lines, then you could opt to select a wood that is darker in color such as mahogany or walnut.
On the other hand, if you prefer something that is less bulky, then the contemporary style of the chest of drawers is the perfect choice for you. These types of chests of drawers usually have a flat or even rectangular base and are made of metal. The drawers can either feature one or more vertical shelves or they can be arranged in various directions, depending on the overall size of the chest of drawers.
Another difference between the two styles of chests of drawers is the type of top drawer used. A chest of drawers with a top drawer that is made of solid wood, as opposed to a painted variety, is usually fitted with a hanger bar. Painted types of drawers are commonly fitted with small hooks that hang from the bottom of the top drawer piece. Hooks usually have glass eyes on them in order to allow you to hang clothing of varying sizes from the inside of the drawers. Metal chest of drawers are commonly fitted with a hanger bar that has several bars to hang different types of garments.
The style of chest of drawers you choose depends entirely on the interior decor of your home and the amount of space available to you. If you want a chest of drawers that is both functional and attractive, then you should look for an antique style chest of drawers that is made of wood. You could also choose a metal chest of drawers, if you have a very large piece of furniture to be stored in the space. For a small room that is not spacious at all, then a combination of the two styles of chests of drawers would be the ideal solution.
