Safety considerations include the obvious-is it sturdy and free of sharp edges? And the not so obvious-are the drawer knobs or handles easy for small hands to get a grip on? Gliders or center guides will make drawers slide in and out more smoothly, making it easier for preschoolers to dress themselves and put away their clothes. Drawers that are heavy and quick to shut, however, are a recipe for pinched fingers. If your toddler is a climber, put safety locks on the drawers, or they may be used as steps (another reason to anchor the dresser to the wall). Finally, ensure that the drawers can't be removed altogether, or a toddler may end up pulling one out on top of him.
The chest drawers meant for the room of your kids should be smaller in height so that they are easily accessible for the children. Further, these should have more number of chests than drawers so that toys and other larger items of the kids can be easily stuffed into these chests. You can get these drawers painted according to the color scheme of your room, in coordination with the color of the other furniture fitted in the room. In case you are purchasing a second hand furniture chest of drawers, it is important to check it for any major defect. The locks of the drawers should be in working condition and the drawers should be smoothly running over the rollers.
Another furniture chest to choose from is the bedroom furniture chest. Of course bedroom chests are able to add storage to the room but they do while adding a very pretty and unique touch to the bedroom. Bedroom chests come in many wonderful different designs and styles. They are also a great place to store special items like mementos, quilts, blankets, and even photo albums. Do you find that you need extra space in your closet? Try storing your heavy coats and winter clothing in a chest until the seasons change. The key to choosing the perfect bedroom chest is to choose on the fits in with the furniture you already have in your bedroom. Look for a chest made of the same material as the other furnishings.
As children grow up, they use furniture that will grow with them. Nearly everyone needs a mirror of some sort in their bedrooms, and dressers for kids are very good at supplying that. Most of the better ones will come with mirrors large enough for kids to see themselves in and make sure that they look nice.
Dressers with mirrors are usually placed in the bedroom as "vanity stations". Most dressers with mirrors are low, about 2-3 feet tall, with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. These dressers have big tops that function as tables to place cosmetics and other trinkets. The cabinets and drawers usually are not deep and spacious as smaller articles are usually placed in them. Newer designs of dressers with mirrors take out the space for the chair and replace them with cabinets. Furthermore, newer designs are taller and have more spacious cabinets. Newer designs seem to combine the functionalities of a vanity station and a storage space for clothes and bigger articles. These dressers are bigger, and so these are suited for bigger rooms with more space. But there are smaller and more compact dressers with mirrors available in the market today. Although smaller, they still provide the same function.
