Designer Advice

A small drawer cabinet in an apothecary style might seem like it won’t impact your room decor much. But when you choose a cabinet with multiple drawers in various sizes, you get the ideal layout for a unique chic display. Each front panel of the drawers creates the perfect place for decorative imagery.

What we like: Vintage apothecary style

Not great for: A refined, upscale look

This apothecary-style cabinet features multiple small drawers with colorful panels, round knobs, and label boxes that create a vintage industrial flair. The distressed white cabinet finish adds a worn look that accents the neutral tones of the drawers. 

Designer Advice

Apothecary cabinets have the advantage of multiple drawers in various sizes to provide versatile storage. And a worn finish can make your piece feel vintage and aged like it has a long history of stories to tell. Using different colors on the drawers adds an extra layer of decorative accent that can enhance any decor space and room.

What Users Say

I love this piece. It’s so unique with all the different colors I like the distressed look it has. All the drawers provide lots of storage too.

What we like: Multiple style options

Not great for: Storing heavy items

This versatile 8-drawer cabinet has an elegant minimalistic look from the neutral earthy tones of the drawers. The thin, delicate scrollwork of the black metal frame accents the smooth top rack in mahogany with an open bottom wire shelf.

Designer Advice

Cabinets with small drawers come in various materials, sizes, and styles. A slim metal rack with a minimal silhouette can be an amazing alternative to a heavy wood cabinet. You can make a big statement with simple accents like scrollwork, an open frame, and two different-sized drawers - large and small - in yellow, gray, and light brown.

What Users Say

I love these shelves. I was nervous because the drawers are material, but they are very well made and with the base supports you put in each drawer, they hold their shape and move easily.

Yes, wood is the most versatile option, but it’s far from being the only one for your cabinet with lots small drawers. On the contrary, certain materials could help you reinforce your style even further.

For example, choosing a design with a few metal elements is a must in industrial rooms, whereas some basket-style drawers would look delightful in coastal or shabby chic interiors.

A cabinet with lots small drawers will immediately stand out in your home, but this doesn’t mean that it should look out of place.

The easiest way to complement your existing interiors is to opt for a versatile wood finish that’s already present elsewhere in your room. This will also result in an apothecary chest that’s more similar to your traditional pieces of furniture.

When thinking of apothecary chests, you might be picturing a cabinet relying on symmetrical lines of drawers in the same size, but there’s a lot more to them.

In fact, if you’d rather make an even bolder statement, you could look for a model involving drawers in a wide range of shapes and sizes.

This is also handy if you were thinking of storing different types of items in them.

With apothecary chests being used in the 19th century, it won’t come as a surprise that these drawer-based cabinets tend to inspire some antique vibes.

As you know by know, the most streamlined designs in neutral finishes will work in contemporary interiors, too.

However, if you’d rather celebrate their history and already have a few antique pieces of furniture in your home, look for a design in a darker wood finish and with an ornate frame (for example, one featuring wood carvings). Handles in a brass finish will also add to its antique charm.

Opting for carved wooden designs or extremely decorative shapes is another effective idea for a cabinet with lots small drawers that immediately catches your guests’ attention.

While you can still experiment with a quirky showstopping detail or finish, the best thing you can do is choose a cabinet with small drawers that clearly complements your existing decor style.

For example, a quick look at the white-and-light-blue distressed finish of this design with bronze handles is enough to tell us that it’s meant for a coastal home.

If you’re unsure, start by reminding yourself about the three main features of your specific interior style (e.g. certain colors, lack or abundance of details, signature elements…) and scout for them first when browsing new cabinets with small drawers.

Monochrome or bicolor options are the safest and most effective when it comes to matching your interiors and palette, especially if you already have a pretty recognizable pattern in the same room.

But what if you haven’t? What if you sometimes find it a bit bare?

In that case, your new cabinet with small drawers can stand out even more by showcasing some bold patterns on its front.

To keep your interiors consistent, consider introducing them elsewhere in your room, such as on your sofa cushions.

If the main reason why you’re drawn to cabinets with lots small drawers is their intrinsic potential to stand out, just embrace this vision and emphasize it even further with the right finish.

The trick to maintain a cohesive effect in this case is to choose the accent hue of your palette, perhaps for a few drawers.

And don’t forget to reinforce this cohesiveness by sprinkling that color elsewhere within the same area through accessories like cushions or decorative prints.

Another versatile option is to choose a cabinet with lots small drawers in a neutral color like white, black, or gray. This is especially handy in traditional interiors that tend to include at least one of them in their palette, but depending on the actual design, it can work wonders with other décor styles too.

For example, a distressed white finish with ornate details just screams shabby chic, whereas the same color but in a streamlined design and with clean lines would be more contemporary.
