Chest of Drawers Buying Guide

Chest of Drawers Buying Guide

A chest of drawers provides valuable additional bedroom storage. It’s the ideal home for bedding and towels, as well as those smaller items that can’t be hung in your wardrobes. To help you find a chest of drawers in the perfect size and style to suit your bedroom décor, we’ve created this handy guide.

Chest of drawer styles

With such a wide variety of drawers to choose from within our collection, consider what style your room is taking shape into. If your home and style reflects a modern and contemporary look, we have a great range to give that distinguished, linear look from high gloss to mirrored. Or for a more traditional look, we have a wide collection from our classic range, explore some style options below. 

Mirrored chest of drawers

To make a statement and to make the space appear bigger, choose a mirrored chest of drawers. Bronze or silver mirrored drawers combined with a sleek pine or walnut finish will create a feeling of luxury. Mix and match this range with gloss drawer and wardrobe fronts. Here our Vigo Light Pine has a curved cupboard door alongside the mirrored chest of drawers.

Tall chest of drawers

A tall and narrow chest of drawers will work well in small rooms, maximising storage without taking up essential floor space. Our 5 drawer chests go up to a height of 1157mm tall in a variety of widths. However, if you have a large bedroom make a statement with a wide chest of drawers. Low styles can even double up as a TV stand, the perfect multi-use of space. 

Oak chest of drawers

If you love the look and feel of real wood then you'll love our Willoughby range of chest of drawers. Sturdy and stylish with an abundance of real wood finishes, from Natural Oak to deep and decadent Espresso Washed. A natural look that is skilfully handcrafted, this oak finished chest of drawers is available in different widths and heights.

Narrow chest of drawers

Our collection of narrow chests of drawers make the most out of available space in smaller bedrooms and are available in our wide selection bedroom ranges. Choose a 5 drawer high chest in a narrow width of 442mm which can fit neatly and snugly providing clever storage.
