Assembled and Flat Packed Chests of Drawers at Archers
At Archers, we have an extensive range of chests of drawers for sale. Our collection includes a full variety of materials, finishes and sizes. Whether you're looking for pine, oak or budget chest of drawers, there's something to suit everyone.
Chests of drawers are specified by their drawer configuration. For example, a 3+2 drawer chest is a chest with 3 wide drawers and 2 small ones at the top. The small drawers are half the width and are often shallower too.
There are often options to have an extra deep drawer at the bottom of the chest – ideal for those big jumpers. If you can't find the option you are looking for, phone us and ask. There may be combinations that are not shown on the website.
There are various features to look out for when choosing your chests of drawers:
1. Easy glide metal runners – very easy drawer opening.
2. Drawer checks – stops drawers being accidentally pulled out of a chest. There may be times that you want to take a drawer out of a chest but a drawer check stops at least one of those childhood accidents just waiting to happen.
3. Solid ply or wooden drawer bases - low cost drawers will use hardboard that will bend with time and may eventually fail. Regarding plywood, it's a common misconception that ply is inferior to traditional tongue and groove wooden drawer bottoms. Good quality ply drawers can take the weight of a fully grown sales consultant. Ask one to show you. Solid ply is OK.
4. Dove-tailed drawer fronts - dovetails are an interwoven wedge arrangement between the drawer front and the drawer side that ensures the drawer front can never be pulled off. Again ask a sales consultant to give it their biggest pull. OK bed consultants are particularly puny.
5. Non stain tops - wet cups, especially if hot, will quickly mark a wooden chest even if the chest has been protected by a lacquer. A melamine or similar finish is better for resting that early morning cup of tea.
Note that if you need a fast delivery, our flatpack chest drawers can be delivered next day. Great savings and they build real easy. Honest! Buy Today.
