The main function of a dark brown dresser remains, of course, the storage function . The most usual thing is to store in it everything related to the table, in the purest traditional style: behind the doors the most colorful, the crockery and glassware; and in the drawers, the tablecloths, the cutlery … Of course if you are going to devote them to these necessities, you will have to place it in the dining room, near the table , this way you will avoid having to be moving this heavy and / or delicate material in long distances saving you effort and possible accidents.
But you can make it even more profitable by giving it other uses; for example, as an element to divide and separate the dining room and the living room, -as it is small you will not reduce the visual amplitude of the space, -and also you can use the countertop as a mini-cabinet or to leave some decorations.
It can also be of great help in the kitchen, next to the office or as support for the cupboards. Can you imagine the relief you would have on the countertop if you use it to store all the mini-appliances (blender, toaster, juicer …)? And why not put it in the hall and use it to store the shoes?
