6 Make it match
For small country homes, or ones with a simple, pared-down aesthetic, matching freestanding pieces to existing fitted kitchen cabinets avoids a room looking visually cluttered. ‘When choosing a dresser, it's important to consider the style of the other furniture,’ advises Adam Brown, director of the Painted Furniture Company.
‘You could choose a piece in a similar colour or with a similar handle style, to blend with your current scheme. the millbrook design features an open bottom shelf that adds a feeling of space.’
