Buying Guide

Small wooden cabinets are underrated gems. But with a mind-boggling array of sizes and styles to pick from, selecting the right one for your home can be a tad difficult. Here’s some help.

  • They can fit into the tiniest of spaces and gobble clutter like it’s nobody’s business.
  • They can prevent an avalanche of footwear from encroaching your entryway.
  • They can be a great alternative for frumpy spice cabinets.
  • They can organize your clothing and accessories in your bedroom.
  • They can double up as surfaces that you can put your Knick knacks on.

Make a list of all the things that will be stored in it and you should have a pretty good idea of the number of drawers you need and how deep they must be. Large cowboy boots, for example will need drawers that are taller as compared to clothing, which can be folded and stored in sleek ones as well. Also consider the available floor space and vertical space in the room where you will place the cabinet. Account for the additional space needed to extend the drawers fully.

Small wooden cabinets with drawers come in a variety of styles. Some of the common ones are:

  • The classic small wooden cabinet with drawers has a simple design. A column of vertical stacked drawers offers a roomy yet compact storage solution.
  • The Tallboy can be up to four feet tall and often comes with 4 or more storage drawers. The Tallboy utilizes vertical space and can fit narrow spaces next to the bed. Another possible use for the tallboy is as a television stand/console since it allows the TV to be positioned above eye level when you are lying in bed.
  • The 4 over 3 and 2 over 3 designs give you 3 large bottom drawers and 4/2 smaller top drawers. These cabinets allow you to organize your accessories and segregate them for easy access.
  • The 3 plus 3 is a smaller and basic design that offers two columns of three drawers lined next to each other. The upper surface can be used for storage or you can integrate a vanity mirror on it.

Solid wooden cabinets blend into any décor setting and space. Be it the kitchen, the entryway, the living room or the bedroom, you can find a wooden cabinet that matches the décor or works as a focal point.

  • Oak is everlasting and looks classy with its tight grains. It can be finished in just about any color that you can imagine.
  • If you need something less pricey, then pine is a great alternative. It has a pale yellow appearance and has straighter grains.
  • As much as we love solid wooden cabinets, it may not always be a practical or an affordable choice. MDF and engineered wood offer a cost-effective, durable and attractive option for shoppers on a budget.

Check the type of mount. Is it an under mount, a side mount or a center mount one?

  • Side mounts are considered to be more stable than the rest. The caveat is that it requires some amount of clearance for installation. Also, the mount will be visible when the drawer is pulled out.
  • The under mount and center mount slides will be invisible but may be more prone to jamming in a frequent use setting.

Enquire about the quality of the ball bearings used in the slides as well.
