WHAT STYLES DO CHESTS OF DRAWERS AND BEDSIDE TABLES COME IN?
Providing precious storage space and an optimal perching surface for those bedroom essentials - be it ascented candle or your favourite book - there’s no denying the importance of a bedside table and chest of drawers.
The question is, which style will you go for? A large part of your decision will be down to the size of the room. If you're lucky enough to have a big bedroom you'll be able to get away with a wide chest of drawers and a bedside table on each side of the bed but if your room is on the smaller side you're better off looking for a slim chest of drawers and a tall bedside table with a minimal footprint. Either way, you won't be compromising on style so don't worry.
Of course, a chest of drawers doesn’t need to be limited to the bedroom, but can be used in any room requiring extra storage, including the hallway, bathroom or children’s playroom so it’s also worth considering what your new furniture will be used for. We recommend making a list of everything you’d like to store away as this will help you decide the size, the number of drawers and the configuration of the drawers you require. For example, if you are hoping to hide away your thick winter jumpers then wide, deep drawers will be more suitable, whereas if you are looking for drawers to store smaller accessories and jewellery then multiple small drawers will be useful. Remember, you can always buy handy drawer organisers, baskets and boxes to tailor the drawer space to your needs.
Once this is decided, you can start to think about which style will complement your room best. For example, a vintage chest of drawers with classic styling will suit a more traditional interior scheme whereas a modern chest of drawers with a minimal and uncluttered aesthetic will look great in a Scandinavian-inspired interior.
WHAT MATERIALS AND COLOURS ARE HABITAT'S BEDSIDE TABLES AND CHESTS OF DRAWERS AVAILABLE IN?
The material and colour you opt for will depend on the look and feel of the room. Do you want a statement piece that will stand out or would you prefer something that blends into its surroundings a little better? Either way, you’ll find a plethora of bedroom furniture styles to choose from.
