Lingerie Chest Buying Guide
A lingerie chest is a must for every woman. As the name suggest, this kind of storage chest is meant to keep undergarments, particularly the expensive ones. But though it is mainly created to serve that purpose, it is not to say that a lingerie chest could not assume other roles. Truth of the matter is, it can also be utilized for storing other items as well, aside from lingerie and undergarments. While having this storage chest will definitely be handy, many believe that investing in one is impractical. But is it really? If you think about it, buying a lingerie chest is actually something that will offer good value for your money, that is, if you are able to choose the right one that will best serve your storage needs and requirements. So, how do you choose the right lingerie chest for you? Here’s how:
Consider the main reason why you are buying the chest. If you are one of those women who have a wide collection of underwear, night gowns, and brassieres, then owning a lingerie chest must be seriously considered. Not only will it help you organize all your undergarments but it will also allow you to keep them all in one accessible and convenient location. You can also store other clothing articles in the chest if space is still available.
Determine what kind of lingerie chest you want to acquire. Like other storage units, lingerie chests come in all shapes and sizes. They are also available in a great variety of designs, colors, sizes, storage capacities and styles. Are you looking for mirrored lingerie chests, Covington Chest, Coral Key Chifforobe Chest, Ventura Chest, Chatham Lingerie Chest or a Louis-Philippe Lingerie Chest? If you wish to acquire an eloquent chest that can also boost the visual appeal of your bedroom, then the Louis Philippe Lingerie chest is certainly a great option to consider. This particular model boasts of a 6-drawer design and a quaint cherry finish that can offer a sophisticated look to the room. Cedar lingerie chests are ideal if you want to keep moths away from your clothing. But of course, you can still go for a cherry, pine, oak lingerie chest, which will all make an elegant and beautiful addition to any space, and just throw in some moth balls for added clothing protection.
As for the cost, lingerie chests are sold in varying price ranges, depending on the type wood it is constructed from, number of drawers, complexity of design and manufacturer. You can actually buy a chest under $400, like for instance the Jaycee Naia 5-drawer chest lingerie chest. Or, if money is not issue, you can go for those expensive models that can cost up to $1000 or more. Meanwhile, if money is a bit tight you can browse through furniture shops that are known to offer antique or vintage chests that are still in great shape.
Once you have determined how much you are willing to spend for the chest and the type you need, you now have to consider how big it should be. I highly suggest that you pick one that will perfectly fit in the area where you will be placing the chest. Also, you should take into account the number of garments that it needs to keep and organize. There is no need to buy a big lingerie chest that come with multiple drawers if you only need to store a few undergarments. Not only are you wasting your money if you do so but a big chest can also eat up a lot of floor space.
Finally, if you want to get your money’s worth, it would be smart to invest in a lingerie chest made by a reputable manufacturer, like Lea and Prepac. By doing so, you are sure that you will be getting a durable and high-quality chest. Other buying factors to consider include the style, height, features and overall look. Remember to purchase a lingerie chest that will not only blend well with your room’s theme as well as the existing furnishings in it, but also one that would suit your specific storage demands and personal preference.
