Chest of Drawers vs Tallboys: Making the Right Choice

Chest of Drawers vs Tallboys: Making the Right Choice

So, you're on the hunt for some storage furniture, and you're wondering about the differences between tallboys and chests of drawers. Don't worry; it's not as tricky as it may seem. Let's break it down.

1. Assess Your Space: Think about where you'll put your new piece of furniture. If you've got a big room with lots of vertical space to spare, tallboys could be a good choice. However, if your room is on the cozier side, a chest of drawers might be more your speed.

2. Embrace the Height: Tallboys are, well, tall! If you're okay with reaching a bit higher to grab your stuff, tallboys could be perfect. They bring a bit of extra height to your room's decor.

3. Space Efficiency: Short on space? Modern tallboys can be a lifesaver. They take up less floor space, which is awesome for small bedrooms or tight living areas. 

4. Versatility: Chests of drawers are like the multitool of furniture. You can store clothes, use them as a surface for your things, and even stash extras on top or inside.

5. Matching Aesthetics: No matter your style—modern, traditional, or something in between—both tallboys and chests of drawers come in various configurations and sizes to suit your taste.

6. Style Variety: There's a wide range of styles for both types of furniture. But remember, tallboys are usually more eye-catching, while chests of drawers tend to blend in easily with your decor.

In the end, it's all about what suits your room, your style, and your storage needs. So, go ahead and make a choice and check out our Lois Tallboy and Clark Solid Timber Chest. Both designs are made by us, in our Cheltenham workshop - let us know if you need a custom size, that’s what we are here for ☺️ There is no one size fits all when it comes to storage!
