What Is the Right Chest of Drawers for You?

Drawer chests and dressers are essential bedroom furnishings in homes of any size. After all, you don’t need to be a fashionista to require a place for your pants, tops, and underwear.

Drawer chests add style and functionality to any room, so why not get something you’re excited about? With so many options in the market, it can be tough to figure out what makes one drawer chest better than the next.

Your friends at Q Living Furniture want to help you take the guesswork out of your purchasing decision!

It all comes down to the materials used in the unit’s construction, the durability of the piece itself, its size and capacity, and even its design and style.

Fear not; we’ve got you covered!

What Makes a Good Quality Bedroom Furniture Chest?

The construction techniques used in manufacturing a drawer chest greatly impact its overall quality and durability. Material choice matters.

Opting for high-quality wood, like acacia, ensures a sturdy and long-lasting piece of furniture.
Take the Gia 5-Drawer Chest, for example.

This piece has a solid acacia top, drawer fronts, and legs. You get an authentic wood furnishing with a pleasing wood grain, plus the added strength that comes from implementing the material into such a smart design.

Plywood or particleboard products may compromise the overall durability of a drawer unit. By selecting a better material, you can ensure that your drawer chest stands the test of time.

Drawer Chest Construction and Durability

There are a few key factors to consider when it comes to the construction and durability of a set of drawers.

One important aspect is the use of dovetail joints, which provide superior strength and durability. Additionally, reinforced corners and sturdy hardware enhance the overall longevity of a drawer chest.

It’s crucial to avoid drawer chests with weak or flimsy construction, as they may lead to premature wear and tear.

If it’s top-tier quality you seek (and you should), you’re invited to check out the Remix 4-Drawer Chest sold at Q Living Furniture. The solid rubber wood construction and Estelle brown wood finish create an elegant set of drawers that will serve you well.

Opting for drawer chests with metal glides (like the Remix) ensures bedroom furniture with smooth and durable drawer operation. Lastly, look for drawer chests with reinforced bottoms that can withstand heavy use.

When it comes to something as important as your bedroom storage, it pays to shop in person. If the floor model doesn’t knock your socks off, it will not likely get any better when you get the product home.

Size and Capacity

When choosing a drawer chest, it is vital to consider its size and capacity. Consider the available space you have in your room and opt for a chest that fits accordingly.

Additionally, check the depth and width of each drawer to ensure they can accommodate your storage needs. You’ll want a taller drawer chest if you require more vertical storage space.

Finally, don’t forget to consider the height of the chest to ensure easy access to the top drawers. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget about these considerations when you spot a good deal or fall in love with a specific look.

Design and Style

When choosing a drawer chest, thinking about the design and style that will complement your existing room decor is essential. Even a beautiful 3-drawer chest will look out of place if it clashes with the look of the bed frame or some other aspect of the room.

Different drawer chest designs, such as contemporary or traditional, cater to different aesthetic preferences. Look for decorative accents or details that enhance the overall visual appeal of the drawer chest. Consider the colour or finish of the chest to match your desired tastes.

What’s nice about modern West Coast furniture stores like Q Living is that they carry products that combine a natural aesthetic with the latest design trends.

The West 5-Drawer Chest perfectly encapsulates this sensibility.

Remember to choose a chest design that speaks to your personal taste and enhances the overall ambiance of your living room or bedroom.

Budget and Affordability

When shopping for a drawer chest, it’s wise to consider your budget and affordability. Start by determining a budget range you’re comfortable with, as this will help guide your selection process.

While it may be tempting to go for the cheapest option, consider the long-term investment of a quality drawer chest that may be pricier initially but provides more years of enjoyment. Avoid compromising on quality for affordability, as a poorly made drawer chest may require replacement sooner.
