OF SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS: WHAT SIZE OF CHEST OF DRAWERS SHOULD YOU BUY?
Drawers come in a variety of sizes and shapes to choose from, and the right size for everyone depends on what you intend to store in it. If you are unsure, try creating a list of all the things you want to store to help you visualize what size might work best.
As a guide, if you are looking for a place to store all your thick winter woolens or bedding, you will need a dresser with deep and wide drawers, such as our "Nordic 1" dressers. "Nordic 1" o "Elsa". If you have closet space for that purpose and simply want a place to store smaller items like socks and underwear, you may just need smaller, lighter drawers. In this case pay your attention to chest of drawers "Escandi 1 Design".
The height of your dresser is also an important consideration, and not just for practical reasons. It also affects the ambiance within the room. Low-positioned dressers are good choices for children's rooms, but will look out of place in a more modern setting where the rest of the furniture is sleek and tall.
WHAT IS YOUR TYPE?
Chest of drawers come in various configurations and styles. Here are four common options to explore when looking for the perfect dresser.
THE "CHICO ALTO" is one of the most popular dressers, it is a dresser that usually comes with four or more drawers. This means it offers plenty of storage space, but takes up minimal floor space, perfect for those smaller rooms or to keep a minimalist feel to your space.
THE 2 OVER 3 is the style that consists of 2 smaller drawers in the top row and 3 larger drawers underneath, giving you ample storage space while offering two compact drawers for accessories. This is ideal for keeping undergarments separate.
The '4 OVER 3' is a slightly larger version of the 2 over 3. This allows for plenty of storage space with its 3 large bottom drawers, and plenty of room to segregate accessories in its 4 smaller top drawers: an excellent choice for family rooms.
THE "3 Y 3" is a low chest of drawers that offers plenty of space in its large, deep drawers, as well as a large surface area on the top of the chest. This dresser can be used in combination with a mirror to create a dressing table.
WHICH CHEST STYLE OF DRAWERS SHOULD YOU BUY?

Maybe you love the vintage or mid-century feel, or you might be looking for something with a light and airy Scandinavian style to complement the rest of your decor.
