"When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back."
~ Steve Jobs
Storage spaces are important and essential for every home, office and retail space. But choosing the right furniture is vital in order to store your things, and it needs some thought and planning prior to making a purchase.
A chest of drawers is one of the most convenient pieces of furniture. It usually has about four or five drawers, one below the other, allowing you to store your essentials with ease. With a chest of drawers, you can easily compartmentalise your things according to your need. It saves you space, it is easy to reach into, and looks classy too.
A chest of drawers in your room can play a dual role - it keeps your things organised and well-segregated, and also acts as a dressing table, making it easy for you to keep your make-up and other everyday essentials at reach. You could also frame a mirror above it so as to make it more convenient for you.
You may place your neatly folded clothes and daily wear in a chest of drawers for easy reach. It makes for a very convenient mini wardrobe as it makes space for your essentials.
Files and Stationery
For an office or retail space, a chest of drawers is ideal for neatly stacking together important files, folders and stationery. Here, you may choose a chest of drawers with a facility to lock so as to keep it safe, and yet within easy reach. There are several options available in the office range of furniture.
Choosing The Right Chest of Drawers
Ideally, a chest of drawers with two small drawers on the top followed by large single drawers offers more convenience for the user. There are different types of chest of drawers available at furniture stores - wooden, metal, tall, short, antique, etc. However, you may use your discretion to find out which one suits your needs best.
