Versatile Ways to Use a Chest of Drawers
A chest of drawers is a stylish, highly versatile piece of furniture that you can introduce to your home. This elegant storage furniture also comes in a variety of styles and sizes, making it a practical choice for any type of room.
Whether you want it to be a standout feature for your room or work as a supporting piece for your focal point, a chest of drawers can help you create a creative and more organised space.
Here are some easy, creative, and practical ways to design with a chest of drawers anywhere at home.
Towel and Linen Storage
Starting from the basics, you can use your chest of drawers to store small to larger items like towels and linens. If you have a more compact bedroom, you may use a tall and narrow chest of drawers to keep folded items in place. This storage solution is spacious enough for bath towels and bed sheets but is compact enough to fit into tight spaces. Many chests of drawers also come with two smaller top drawers for accessories and other smaller items.
To effectively organise your chest of drawers, arrange your items based on type and frequency of use. Store folded items that you need on the top part of the chest of drawers while you fill the bottom part with linens that you seldom use.
Guest Room Storage
Have frequent overnight visitors? Keep your guest room clean and organised with a flexible chest of drawers. Since the guest room is less furnished and decorated than the main bedroom, select a chest of drawers that is stylish enough to liven up the aesthetics of your area. From modern to more eclectic designs, you can find myriad design options on the market. If you want something more eclectic and adventurous, consider playing with textures and colours to create a unique design statement.
Alternative Bedside Table
If you have a smaller bedroom, choose a multi-purpose chest of drawers that can double as a bedside table. A smaller chest of drawers that is slightly taller than the bed can beautifully anchor your sleeping surface while making your items accessible. Depending on your theme, you may decorate the drawer top with a lamp and vase or create a DIY dressing table by hanging a mirror on top of your chest of drawers.
Entryways are notorious for collecting clutter and messes since this is where your family and guests leave their shoes, umbrellas, and other items that do not belong inside. Many homes in Singapore don’t have the luxury of a large foyer with dedicated storage areas, making the entryways catchalls for clutter. Positioning a tall chest of drawers in your entryway can instantly declutter the area. This can also be used to store keys and seasonal items.
Living Room Display Cabinet
What we love about the chest of drawers is its versatility to organise and spruce up any space in your home. You always find a new way to use a chest of drawers in your home, from the bedroom to the guest room and now to the living room.
The living room is a frequent gathering area that you certainly want to be neat and stylish in. If you want a practical and fuss-free way to add some purpose to your living space, try adding a chest of drawers to your living room setup. Like a bedside table, you can place a small chest of drawers beside the sofa to work as a storage end table. You can also use a low-profile chest of drawers as anchor storage for your TV console, where you store remote controls and other electronic accessories.
Cabinet for Bathroom Essentials
Infuse some style into your bathroom storage by opting for a mini-chest of drawers. You can use this versatile storage for towels and linens or as a makeshift storage solution near your sink or bathroom mirror.
When buying a chest of drawers for your bathroom, choose one that can hold up to some amount of moisture and humidity to prevent warping or water damage.
Stylish Laundry Room Hamper
Ditch a laundry hamper or basket and switch to a more aesthetically pleasing way to keep your dirty clothes out of sight. This can also help you save space, as you can separate clothes by colour or type in each drawer.
Makeshift Home Office Storage
Working from home? You need effective storage to keep your files, equipment, and office essentials in place. Transform an oh-so-formal working space into a personalised and inspiring home office by switching your filing cabinet to an expressive chest of drawers. Luckily, you can craft your own office setup at home with items that reflect your style. Simply place an elegant chest of drawers beside your office desk to instantly create an inviting ambiance.
If the chest of drawers is shared by working parents and studying children, you can designate some drawers for each family member.
Kids’ Room Storage
The chest of drawers is a safe and functional piece, ideal for storing kids’ clothes and toys. You can even create a dedicated storage area for linens so you can easily change your kids' bedding when things get messy. When it comes to toys and crafting materials, a spacious chest of drawers can help you sort out the items by type and prevent toys from getting lost. You can even teach your little one how to put everything back in place after playing by labelling your storage according to purpose.
Charming Buffet Hutch
A chest of drawers also has a place in your kitchen. If you’re short on space or simply want to be creative when it comes to your storage, a chest of drawers can work as an alternative buffet hutch or a storage space for your pantry or kitchen essentials. Easily stash away your kitchen utensils and dishes or create a decorative surface with your purposeful chest of drawers.
A chest of drawers is a convenient and functional must-have for any home in Singapore. Need extra storage? There’s a spacious chest of drawers for you. Adding a statement piece to your space? You can count on a stylish chest of drawers. Whatever storage you need anywhere at home, there is a stylish chest of drawers awaiting you.
