“A place for everything and everything in its place”. Whether at work or home, creating a system of order for your possessions will create numerous benefits in your life.

“A place for everything and everything in its place”. Whether at work or home, creating a system of order for your possessions will create numerous benefits in your life. When you have a fixed place for all of your possessions and keep organised, you can easily grab them and go. You’ll never be late for a job interview, date, or other important event again, held back by not being able to find something you need while you’re rushing out of the house. Second only to the bed, the dresser and chest of drawers is surprisingly the most important, highly used and diverse piece of a furniture in your bedroom. Frequently used as a vanity, display area for photos, trophies and other sentimental elements, or storage facility for clothing, knick-knacks, jewellery, or even paperwork, the dresser is a vital part of your bedroom that should not be chosen in haste.

Choosing the Right Storage Unit

Choosing the right chest-of-drawers depends on the material, colour and size. You might also need to pay attention to several subtle details that make an overall difference, such as the handles, leg design, and whether the storage unit fits within the theme of your home. Here are three key considerations:

  1. Decide what kind of items you’d like to store, and your own storage habits before purchasing a chest-of-drawers. This is so that you can choose something with the appropriate drawer depth and width.
  2. Before purchasing, do pay attention to how smooth the movement of each drawer is when you pull it out and push it back, it should be something suited to your comfort level.
  3. Avoid selecting drawers with fluted pilasters to prevent dust from entering. The best thing is, items placed in drawers are also less likely to be affected by moisture.

The Bowen 5-drawer Chest

When you find yourself in a conundrum as to which chest-of-drawers is right for you, you might want to consider Commune’s dark wood Bowen 5-drawer chest.  Its rounded edges and friendly curves help to create a convivial ambience for the mid-century modern or modern retro home. Made of premium American walnut wood, the chest-of-drawers’ sophisticated craftsmanship requires skill in working with solid timber, because edges have to be perfectly shaped, sanded and curved to echo the softness of vintage mid-century designs. It can be easily used as additional bedroom storage or as a multi-purpose storage cabinet equally at home in the living or dining room. The understated, yet rich texture of black walnut is also sure to bring the atmosphere of woody warmth and nature right into your home.
