When picking the perfect wooden chest of drawers, there's a lot to consider. The most important factor being what you want to store in it.

If you're planning for your drawers to double up as a bedside table, you'll be looking for a slimline chest with a few small drawers for all those bedtime essentials – cashmere socks, a sleep mask, and so on.

Whereas, if you need storing for bedding, extra-wide drawers that won't crumple your freshly laundered sheets are a must.

For clothes storage, you'll value a chest with drawers of varying sizes – perhaps a few smaller compartments at the top for lingerie and hosiery, increasing in size to accommodate t-shirts and camisoles, then chunkier knitwear.

In terms of the tone of your wood, head to either end of the spectrum for a look that's on point. So either a very pale white oak or ash, or a rich and dark walnut. Texture is also key – Andrew Martin's Raffles chest, for example, mimics woven linen through it's unusual grain.

We’ve picked out the very best to give you some sophisticated storage solutions.
