An Unexpected Accent with a Unique Chest of Drawers

A chest of drawers can add versatility and functionality to the décor of any room in your house. Or any space in your house – foyer, entryways, hallways, and breakfast nooks are great places to put a chest of drawers. Wherever you decide to put your chest of drawers, the conveniences it gives you lets you keep everything out of site but still within in easy reach. Below are some ways you can add the unexpected to your décor with a chest of drawers.

Bedroom Storage

Even if you have plenty of closet space and don’t need extra clothing storage, there is still a place for a chest of drawers in a bedroom. A small chest of drawers next to the bed, such as the elegant paneled piece above, makes a lovely nightstand. Create visual contrast by using a different, leggy style on the other side of the bed. Place a reading lamp and a small grouping of family photos or cherished collectibles.

Living Room Style

You can also use a chest of drawers to add a little eclectic flair to your living room. Place a small chest parallel with your sofa or chair’s arm. This will work best if there is just a few inches difference between the top edge of the chair or sofa’s arm and the top of the chest. With such a small piece, you don’t have to make a commitment to one particular style, as long as it goes with the current style of your living room.

Home Office

Every home office needs a place to put the printer, why not make yours stylish? A sturdy chest of drawers not only supports your printer but provides plenty of storage for printer paper and other office supplies. A chest like the one above lets you keep files and paperwork handy in the lower drawers, all neatly labeled.

Entry Hall

A small chest adds charm and functionality to your entry way. You can hang a mirror on the wall above it for last minute hair and make checks and use the drawers to stash extra car keys, sunglasses, and other necessities. Add a table lamp on top, a tray for mail, and some decorative items that will make your entryway a practical and welcoming space for guests and family members.

Breakfast Nook

If you have walls of windows in your breakfast nook that make using a baker’s rack or china cupboard impractical, try a chest of drawers instead. The drawers are great for storing tablecloths, napkins, and place mats. You can set up a mini buffet, tea tray, or coffee service on the top.
