Drawers — where would we be without them? Such a simple concept and yet so very essential, it’s hard to imagine what people did before drawers came along. But then I suppose they didn’t have as many clothes to put in them! There probably isn’t a household in the UK that doesn’t have a set of drawers and in children’s rooms they are almost as essential as a bed or cot.
Thankfully the days of white chip-board drawers that fall apart as soon as you touch them have long gone, to be replaced by sturdy, solid sets that should last years. But sturdy and solid doesn’t mean boring, certainly not for children’s rooms! Have a look at some of these examples that range from natural wood to bright and colourful.
Us parents can be very demanding, we don’t just want a chest of drawers for children, we want lots of storage and a high quality finish that will last, whilst children just want it to look good!

Rounded edges and metal drawer stoppers make it a safe choice for little fingers too.

We’ve seen a few examples of children’s furniture which has been described as fun and funky but the Mammut chest from Ikea is the one that gets it just right we think. It’s colourful and whimsical but still a useful and great value furniture piece.
While we are on the subject of colourful and zany furniture the Juicy Fruits chest of drawers from Aspace is certainly both of these. Whether this combination of colours will prove conducive to a restful night’s sleep though is another matter?
