“We searched high and low until we found Mennonite Furniture Studios ‘American Heirloom Furniture’ via the internet. Once the maple wood for our table arrived, they mailed us stained samples. There are very few expensive items I have purchased that I felt were of exceptional quality. I would absolutely say this furniture is exceptional. The entire shopping experience with them was enjoyable. They were timely and thorough in answering my questions, went out of their way to earn my trust, charged me a very fair price (in fact, we had enough money left to place an additional order for a coffee table and two candle tables) and delivered a fine product on time. I would shop there again and recommend my friends to do the same.”

Understand which features You should demand and which ones You should avoid in order to get the best value from Your next quality bedroom cabinet purchase:

What To Insist On: – Find out exactly what to look for in a true ‘Heirloom Quality Cabinet’ that will beautifully accommodate Your needs, and be easily maintained to last for generations

What To Avoid: – Find out how to look for, identify, and avoid common cabinet manufacturers cost-cutting steps that will simply not bear the burden of normal use in Your home

Insist On This – What To Look For When Choosing Quality Bedroom Cabinets For Your Home

Bedroom Chest Quality And Value

A true ‘Heirloom Quality’ bedroom chest is always a piece of furniture that is both beautiful and functional. Caringly crafted from selected solid hardwood, it will provide far superior value to any of the mass-produced cabinets that You’ll find in most furniture stores – and the majority of people are pleasantly surprised at just how affordable an Heirloom Quality cabinet can be.

Heirloom Quality bedroom chests must be designed to be functional in their application. As furniture manufacturers, we purposefully provide a broad range of cabinet styles, finishes, and layouts – so that you can choose the optimum combination to suit Your particular requirements! Make sure that Your new cabinets will fit into your bedroom with plenty of space to open drawers and doors. Choose Your drawer and cupboard combination to make the best use of the available space, so that the of hanging space, drawer space and shelf space will fit Your needs.

Beauty: Heirloom Quality cabinets are beautiful pieces of furniture, displaying a balanced sense of proportion. The fine cabinetry design details and the accompanying hardware should intimately compliment each other. Joints should always be clean and uniform, and the finish should be even and smooth – amplifying the natural beauty of the underlying hardwood grain.

Quality Bedroom Chest Construction: A true Heirloom Quality bedroom chest is designed and constructed, using time-tested engineering principles, carefully selected hardwoods, and quality materials, to be both strong and durable. Inspect the top of any cabinet that You are considering – the use of veneers is simply not acceptable for any piece that You mean to use regularly and expect to last as legacy furniture. Insist on a Solid Hardwood Case that will never wear through, and may be sanded down, repaired and refinished – even when subjected to extreme ‘wear and tear’.

Look For Legacy Carpentry Techniques: Solid hardwoods, edge-jointed with care, form a long lasting, smooth top, which with moderate care will never warp or split. Since drawers receive the brunt of wear and tear, drawer boxes should always be constructed with dovetail joints – both front and back!. In particular, make sure that the drawer sides are dovetailed into the drawer front (rather than the front being attached to the drawer box with screws). Dovetail joints are nearly impossible to pull apart. Also look for closely fitting mortise-and-tenon joinery in the doors, and ship-lap joints in solid-wood backs. These superior joinery techniques have been used by craftsmen for generations to produce beautiful yet strong cabinets that retain their beauty and their functionality through time. Carefully check the fit of the drawers and doors. Doors should fit snugly, but not so tightly as to put undo stress on hinges or knobs.

Ask About The Glues Used: Modern technology has allowed the development of tenacious adhesives that allow the wood to move naturally with the seasons while providing joints that are now stronger than the structure of the wood itself.

Look For A Tough Hardened Varnish: Ask about modern catalyzed finishes and clean-room coating techniques. These allow full development of color and luster that emphasize the natural beauty of the wood grain, yet allow full protection against water and spillage of common household chemicals. Today’s Heirloom Quality cabinets are far more durable than the antiques they are modeled on – so they require far less care and maintenance.
