A low chest of drawers can be an attractive option for older children and adults too. They don't take up much wall space so you can place shelves and shelving units above them. They will usually also be much wider than a regular chest, making them perfect for blankets and other larger or bulkier items. Some sit flat on the floor which maximises space and avoids a build-up of dust underneath.Before you buy your drawers, do measure the floor space available to you and make sure there's plenty of room to walk past them without bumping into the corners. Remember that you'll sometimes be walking around your room in the dark, so leave plenty of space. Some chests have extra features that can be really useful in a busy house. For example, rather than legs, they may feature castors which make it easier to move them around when cleaning or rearranging the room. Other chests have a glass top which is an excellent idea to keep them from getting scratched or stained. However, the glass top is rarely fixed so avoid these in a child's room as they could come loose. The glass is also sometimes placed on tiny pads to help keep it in position and these can present a choking hazard for a young child.
Focus on funcion, when choosing a bedside table, ensure there is enough surface area to store or display the things you use regularly. This might include your bedside lamp, a glass of water, a book, candle or a vase of flowers, and a place to rest your reading glasses. If you want a more minimal look, choose a bedside with drawers, then you can store it all out of sight. Most other things that we commonly store on our bedside table – such as medication, spare change and electronic devices – could be easily moved to other places around your house, clearing the clutter and enabling to you sleep better. Try to avoid purchasing the matching bedroom suite if you want to inject personality into your bedroom. When everything looks the same, it can look a bit like a catalogue and it becomes harder to stamp your own style. Think beyond standard bedside table. A chair, ladder shelf, or a stack of vintage suitcases or milk crates can create an interesting look while still providing function. Just pay attention the tips above and experiment with different options.
In a small room, mirrored drawers can look less imposing as they simply reflect what is around them and don't appear to take up any floor space. Avoid them however in a child's room as you will find yourself constantly wiping away smudgy finger marks. A high gloss set of drawers will work far better, offering a wipe clean surface that will still look good even if it's not impeccable. If you're on a tight budget, it's an easier option to go for a low cost chest of drawers or one that is in the sale. Just sort the items on the website you're viewing with the lowest price first and you'll see the cheapest options at the start. Be aware that sale items are often listed in the results by their original price so it's worth scanning through all of the results to make sure you don't miss a bargain.
