Increasingly, clothes storage is being catered for either by permanent built-in units installed by the builder, or by KD linking wall units that arrive in flat boxes ready for DIY assembly. These often replace not only the traditional wardrobe but also the chest of drawers and dressing table as well. For this reason, and because the general public is less willing to spend the equivalent amount of money on bedroom furniture as they do on their sitting room, dining or kitchen requirements, bedroom furniture is an area less frequently undertaken by the craftsman. The exception to this is the chest of drawers, which can have a more general application than strictly bedroom use. However, the following information may still be useful and relevant as small workshops do get involved from time to time in the construction of built-in units, and free-standing bedroom furniture is still a requirement in many older houses.
