Con­sider how many draw­ers you re­ally need and whether you’d pre­fer deep ones or nar­row. Find out if the fur­ni­ture is self-assem­bly or ready-built, as this may in­flu­ence your de­ci­sion.

Check the qual­ity of the run­ners and han­dles – dif­fi­cult when buy­ing on­line, but the small­print should say what ma­te­ri­als they’re made from.

Solid wood may cost more, but is of­ten worth the in­vest­ment as it will last longer.

Rather than throw­ing out an old chest, why not up­cy­cle it with a stain, var­nish or paint and use it in an­other

room, such as the bath­room?
