Finding furniture that fits
One of the joys of having an old house is all of the funny little gaps and nooks - and the lack of storage space. I'm making it my mission to fill up all of our funny little nooks and crannies with shelves and cupboards to keep out stuff organise and out of site. Some of our areas are so unusual I'm getting custom furnture solutions made - like our kitchen which is not really suited to cooking in this century! If you are also dealing with retrofitting furniture to create storage in an old house, then you'll appreciate the hints on my blog.
Moving furniture long distances to a new home is a pretty difficult task, with the size and weight of items usually being the trickiest aspect. When it comes to some furniture, however, the design and nature of the item adds extra difficulties. One of the most troublesome items to move safely is a chest of drawers, with loose moving parts making it a risky endeavour.
To get around the problem and make sure your chest of drawers arrives at your new place safe and sound, it's all about packing and preparing it properly.
