Size.The first consideration for your chest of drawers is the size that you need. In a tiny room, look for a tall slim chest that won't stick out too far from the wall but will offer you plenty of storage. Slim chests can be quite narrow so check the width and make sure that this is suitable for what you intend to put in the drawers. You also need to look at the depth of the drawers – if for example you're looking to store jumpers, very shallow drawers won't be suitable. In a child's room, consider what height the chest of drawers will need to be for the child to be able to reach the top drawer comfortably. A low set of drawers will be easier to reach and less likely to tumble over if your child decides to climb on it. It is advisable to secure the drawers to the wall with a wall strap anyway, to avoid any accidents. Avoid placing the drawers underneath a window where they could be used to climb up.
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.
Consider mirrored doors for your wardrobe if you want the room to look a little more spacious and open or if you simply want the surface to reflect the beautiful views outside. Here's a design with a symmetrical structure and a mirrored door at the center. All of the variations presented above are nice options for those of you who prefer the usual closet space in the bedroom. But there's also another possibility. Instead of hiding everything behind closed doors, you can opt for open storage. In this case, you'd be displaying all your clothes and accessories on hanging rods and shelves. You can, of course, mix and match designs and styles and also include a few drawers. This type of storage can be an interesting option for a casual bedroom or for a small room where a regular closet would occupy too much space.
