Shaker Style furniture and hope chests have been crafted in America for the last 200 years. This furniture style is the end result of the strict Shaker religion viewpoint that that all things were to be created for maximum utilitarian efficiency. Added embellishments were thought to be entirely unnecessary and a wrongful expenditure. This is why the Shaker Style form has simple lines and no decorative elements such as inlay work, added raised wood designs or engraved designs that were common among other Early American hope chest styles. Only on a few furniture pieces is there a little bit of beaded work design. The same reasoning went into why the legs were always straight and without any curves. In addition, Shaker furniture is usually stained rather than painted in holding with this viewpoint.
The costs of a total replacement of all the cupboards are justified if you plan on staying in the house for a longer period of time. However, you should consider the cheaper solution (of painting them) if you intend to sell your house,or if your budget is limited.Inlay Design On Blanket Chests
Another option is the sometimes quirky mule chest. The mule chest has no standard set-up, really, but it is often defined by a small square storage area with a door instead of a drawer. This door area can be set in the middle of the piece or in one of the upper corners. This set-up leads to the piece having a few different sized drawers and gives it a bit of an antique or hand-crafted look. Mule chests are usually larger than standard chests and many can work in the living room as well as the bedroom.
From storage to style, a chest of drawers has evolved itself. Most of the chests are of waist height having three to five drawers. Its top surface is made flat so that it can also be used as a table for keeping a flower vase, jewellery box, photo frame, etc. While they come in various options, selection completely depends on the preferences of the person buying it. A chest of drawers also comes with an option of choosing drawers. You can buy a chest with two, three, four or as many drawers you want. You can also get a chest customised as per your requirements. Either shape, size, material or the number of drawers, you can get it done easily.Handcrafted Blanket Chests
