When people look at heirloom hope chest furniture, they look at the wonderful styling and the care that it took to create these fine furniture pieces. They also look at the type of wood that was used for the construction of these blanket chests. The better the quality of wood used equals a longer survival time for these fine wood chests which have battled the elements. Hope chests made a few centuries ago would have endured the year round temperature changes and the many changes in humidity levels since homes back then were not always well insulated. These homes may not have been evenly heated as they are now either.
Hope chests were usually stained a dark brown or painted to enhance the engraving or other embellishments on the outside areas. The name of the person who received the blanket chest along with the date was inscribed on the outside or on the inside of the lid of these heirloom chests. Some blanket chests were made with drawers along the bottom in which to place an extra special item such as a wedding dress. Others were given a tray area in top that could be easily removed in which to place smaller items.
The durability of the trunk is one of the major considerations to keep in mind while choosing a trunk. Most first-time buyers tend to give major importance to the aesthetics of the trunk and overlook the durability aspect of the trunk. The lightweight ones may look good and be easier to move around, but they are likely to get dented and spoilt quite easily. They will also spoil the clothes within them if they are not lined with good quality cedar on the insides. The better quality ones may cost more, but in the long-term scenario, it makes sense to buy a long-lasting and sturdy trunk.
