Which is Which?
"Practical storage pieces are great if you have a basement or a garage. But when you actually live with them day in and day out, they should be beautiful to look at". Thom Filicia Thanks Thom! But, how many of you really know which is a dresser or a bachelor or a lingerie chest? How many of you out there just read that line and thought what the heck are those other two she is talking about? No fears, these are just fancy names for different kinds of drawers for storage. Let's break them down for you.First up is the Bachelor Chest. It is a low chest of drawers with only a few drawers. Think of it this way: A single guy only has a small space normally and only needs storage for socks, underwear and maybe some ties. He is pretty cute, huh? Next up is the Lingerie Chest. This is a tall drink of water is to hold well...everything we ladies need. Let's face it most of us have a more stuff than we even where more of the time and this was made for the lady in mind. Finally is the Dresser. A dresser can come with or without a mirror. It is lower than a Chest of Drawers which only has drawers in it and no place for a mirror, (I'll spare you the in depth details on that for now). Think of someone standing and looking in the mirror while getting dressed...A Dresser. Now don't get me wrong there are TONs of other names for storage out there. Chest of Drawers , Armoires, Chest and Trunks...oh my! We could go on and on , but for right now let's just stick to those 3. Make sure to impress your friends while out shopping that you know which is which. Check out http://www.bassettfurniture.com
