There are many varied types of storage trunks and chests available nowadays. Every furniture store sells different styles of chests and trunks, and the material varies from metal to wood. The wooden chests can be made with pine, oak, walnut or cherry. The really high-end wooden chests are made of mahogany. Cedar, being an insect repellent, is used to line the insides of all the wooden chests. This helps to protect goods such as clothing, woollens and linen.
Steel or aluminium metal trunks are also very durable, and are generally built with wheels. They are lightweight, easy to move around and long-lasting. These can also be painted to match the room dcor. Cane storage chests are also available, but these are generally purchased as part of an entire furniture set made of cane. Wooden and metal trunks are now being built with outer trimmings such as decorative handles, panels, antique look locks and copper hinges and handles.
Cedar is a wood type which has gained great popularity for the creating of hope chests in more recent times. Cedar is a wood with a huge variance in color, going from a light tan to a brownish red. This gives furniture pieces a 'comfortable' look. Of course the wonderful smell of cedar is also an added attraction. Many wood workers choose to line their hope chests with a thin layer of Cedar, or at least add a layer to the bottoms. The wonderful cedar smell can be rejuvenated by gentle sanding with 200 grit sand paper.
Give the items that you use most often prime real estate. Sit in your desk chair and reach for the drawer that feels most natural. You are probably reaching for the top drawer closest to your dominant hand. That should be the drawer you keep your most frequently used supplies in.
