In an age when chairs and other furniture pieces are designed with a somewhat otherworldly appeal, a vintage item still stands out. Take for instance a three-tier chest or highboy (which refers to drawers raised on high legs) that looks quite elegant. It will look elegant in a stylish, laid back home or a contemporary house. A drawer in unpainted wood like oak or mahogany, reminiscent of the 18th century, certainly has class and character written all over it. Standing on carved or molded bracket feet and with the original handles still intact, such furniture item which can fit nicely in a bedroom, living room, dining room or even in a spot in a hallway, can add beauty and elegance.
The next thing that you`re going to want to keep in mind is how much money are you willing to spend. Of course, solid oak wood is going to be a little bit expensive for most people. There is such a thing as oak veneer which is available in many stores. This is a great way to get the oak chest of drawers that you are looking for without the hefty price tag. Most people know that the oak has a reputation for being solid beautiful furniture. However there are many other options available and if you are willing to shop around you will definitely get a good deal.
When choosing a bedroom chest choose one that fits with type and style of furniture you already have in the room. Choose a chest made of the same type material as other furnishings in the room. You can find a bedroom chest of high quality at an affordable price. When deciding shop around and compare you are sure to find a bedroom chest you like at the price you can afford.
The next thing that you`re going to want to keep in mind is what exactly will you be storing in this chest of drawers. For instance, if you had an entire closet full of sweaters you would never purchase a small three drawer dresser. Be sure that you are purchasing something that is going to be big enough for your needs.
Bedroom chests can vary in size and style but usually have a combination of smaller drawers sat over larger drawers. Most choices of bedroom chest will be known as, for example a 2 over 4 chest or a 3 over 4 chest. When purchasing a chest keep this in mind as the top layer of drawers will usually be smaller, if you require all of the drawers to be the same size aim towards getting a chest that is just a "4 drawer chest". Smaller drawers can be useful for socks, underwear, rolled up ties and even make-up and accessories. There are also a wide variety of drawer separators on the market now designed specifically for organising smaller items within one drawer.
