Pack more storage into a small space or add a complementary piece to go with your existing bedroom chests of drawers. Our small chest of drawers collections offer plenty of pieces that take up little space, so you can store clothing and accessories without overwhelming the room. Choose from styles ranging from mid-century modern to contemporary classic.
When to Choose Small Chest Drawers
A set of small chest of drawers is the obvious choice when you have a small bedroom, but there are a few other reasons to choose this style. If you don’t have much clothing, a larger set of drawers or full wardrobe is probably unnecessary, and you can put the space in your bedroom to better use. Small sets of drawers also complement minimalist decor styles. If your room is filled with mid-century bedroom furniture, this can be the ideal piece to add to your collection. Finally, these pieces are excellent for expanding your existing storage options. If you have ample closet space but find you still lack the room to stow your sweaters and scarves, a smaller piece can find a good home in your space. You can even use these outside the bedroom. Add a set to your spare room to store craft supplies or place one in the living room to serve as a stylish storage sideboard.
Selecting Small Chest Drawers
As with any new piece, always keep your existing furnishings in mind. Wood drawers should match the stain and finish of any other wood pieces in your room. If you cannot find a good match, you should opt for something completely different, such as a slate finish or a piece featuring artful wood inlays. If you are furnishing your bedroom from scratch, keep other items such as bed linen sets in mind. Light textile colours can really stand out next to dark furniture, whereas bolder, brighter sheets and blankets can pop in a room filled with light coloured drawers and closets. If your bed textiles, drapes and rugs include lots of prints, a simple chest of drawers style is a good option for your space.
One of the biggest benefits of low chests of drawers is that they leave plenty of space above them. This gives you ample space to showcase wall art, mirrors or photo prints. When it comes to decorating the top of your chest of drawers, less is more. A couple of small items such as a jewellery box, frame, vase or candle holder can add some personality to your space, but adding fewer items makes your space easier to clean and organise.
