A media chest is a great option for the kids room, thanks to their two-in-one design. Designed to be part TV stand and part dresser, the multi-function style is perfect for small spaces like the youth bedroom. CITY Furniture offers many options designed just for kids, and we’ll show you exactly what to keep in mind when shopping for the younger crowd.
Identify your needs: Media chests are designed to hold a TV on the top, with an open top drawer to hold the cable box. On the bottom, you’ll find standard drawers for clothing storage. So, it’s important to decide how you’ll be using the bedroom media chest exactly. For instance, will it be holding a DVR too? Or gaming equipment? Make sure your choice has enough open space for all media needs.
Match the room: Does your child have a coastal room? Or a modern look? We have media chests in all style and finishes, so it’s easy to match the style you already have. Choose a white media chest to keep the room light and bright, or go with a dark tone for a more refined and timeless look.
Fit the space: A media chest, also known as a media dresser, is typically smaller than a standard dresser. This makes it great for a kid’s room, since the smaller scale should fit just about anywhere. However, since it’s typically used as a TV stand too, make sure you have enough space from the foot of the bed to serve the intended purpose.
Choose the storage: A media chest with drawers can vary by size. For example, some media chests have just a few long and wide drawers, while others have many small drawers. The wide drawers are excellent if you’re storing clothes, while the compact drawers are great for loose items like toys.
