Achest of drawers is the perfect storage solution for many different needs, and provides an essential complement to your wardrobe. You can use it to keep your undies and socks perfectly organised and it's also ideal for keeping leggings, vests, jumpers and anything else that doesn't really need to go on a hanger. A stylish chest of drawers can add a stunning focal point to your bedroom, particularly in a room where there are built in wardrobes and few other furnishings. The top of the drawers is of course a great place to display pictures, or to keep some small dishes for placing your jewellery, coins and keys in at the end of the day. Equally, you might decide to tuck your drawers into a shady corner, helping you to squeeze every last inch of storage out of a small room. Below, we walk you through a number of factors to consider when choosing the perfect chest of drawers to cater for your storage needs.
Don't feel like you need to match your bedside tables. It can work just as well when you choose two different styles, as long as there is a common thread that brings the two together. This might be a matching colour, similar shape or size. For instance one side of the bed may have more room where you can put a larger chest of drawers or console, while the other side has a smaller table in the same wood finish. Or you might choose a more masculine style for his side and a feminine table for her, in a similar size or shape. Again, don't be afraid to try new things and create an area that works for you. Colour and material choice will help dictate the style you create within your bedroom so pay close attention to this. For a coastal and beachy look you may choose natural materials like rattan or white-washed timber, or for a more industrial look, metal and timber may work well. For inspiration you can turn to the Pinterest or design magazines to get an idea about what suits each style, and then gather inspiration to create your own look.

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.
