Additionally, a chest of drawers will help ground your bed in the room visually. This is especially important if you don’t have room besides your bed for bedside tables.

In addition, a chest of drawers is another surface on which to place your belongings. Arrange them beautifully and you’ve got an instant style statement. If you are looking for a perfect chest of drawers for your bedroom then read on as in this article, we will offer some of the tips that should be considered before making a decision on buying a chest of drawers.

Purpose of A Chest of Drawers

In terms of storage, a chest of drawers is a great place to put undergarments, socks, T-shirts and other items that don’t need to hang on hangers. This may also include extra bed linens and towels in harder-to-reach bottom drawers. Before we get started, though, it’s worth understanding the difference between a chest of drawers and a dresser. Both serve similar purposes, but a dresser tends to have a mirror attached to its top surface. Therefore tends to work best in bedrooms. Whereas a low-lying chest of drawers could function as a storage space for table linens and cutlery in a dining room, or for other belongings, in a living room.

But how do you choose the right one for your space, and specifically for your bedroom? Find out with the help of our tips below.

1- Measurements

There’s no one perfect size for a chest of drawers, but the most common width is around 96cm (38 inches), with some extending as far as 116cm (46 inches). Drawers can also range in height from 7.5cm (3 inches) to 30cm (12 inches) each. Make sure your drawers are at least 40cm (16 inches) deep, and up to around 55cm (22 inches) otherwise you won’t be able to store much in them. This is especially important if you’re looking to store jumpers or bed linens here. If your bedroom is small, you might want to go for a tall, slim chest of drawers like Five Drawer Chest. This way, you’re maximizing on storage space, while not taking up a lot of floor space. Whereas a low chest of drawers will work well in a child’s bedroom because it will allow your child to reach the top with ease.

2- Number of drawers

How many drawers should you go for?. It really depends on your storage needs and the amount of space you have. If you have loads of floor space in your room, you might need to go for a wide, low-lying dresser with six drawers split into two segments. The most common format, though, is one column of drawers, and between four and six drawers in total. Odd numbers of drawers do tend to look more striking than even numbers. And many of the chests of drawers on “The Magic Woods” come in a five-drawer format.

3- Placement

Think about where you’re going to place your chest of drawers before you buy it. Ask yourself if it will it sit directly opposite your bed? Or in a corner of the room?. This will determine how deep and wide you can go because you will need to leave enough space to walk around it. Allow at least 60cm (2 feet) between your bed and your chest of drawers.

4- Style

Do you go for something old-fashioned or modern? Something in heavy, strong wood or something in a light, white? It relies upon the style of the remainder of your room and the look you are aiming for. A raw, grainy wood chest of drawers will create a rustic look. This goes well with industrial finishes like concrete, or with breezy white furniture. These would likewise look great in a child’s room in the event that you would prefer not to go for a chest drawer that has been explicitly intended for kids. Gleaming veneers, then, will give a cleaned, urbane look.

If you’re feeling bold, you could mix and match styles in your bedroom: a straightforward, Zen-like white bed would look incredible with a mirrored chest drawer, or a luxurious iron bed frame could look great with a rustic chest drawer.

 Similarly,  you can stick with one look and it will still be wonderful. Keeping your furniture contemporary and clean-lined, in basic, neutral shades can be very effective.
