Compare these two pictures of cherry wood dressers. They both look similar, but one is priced cheaper, why?
The style and color of these two dressers is very similar, but if you look closer you will find there are several differences.
Let’s have a look at the drawers!
One easy way to check if a piece is good quality or not is to pull out the drawer and look at the bottom or check the back of the piece. As you can see the first drawer is not all wood. This is a good indication that the overall quality of the piece is not very high.
(Cherry). But after closer inspection it is clear that the one on the right is a much higher quality dresser and will last a lifetime if treated well. The dresser on the left in contrast is made largely of particle board and will begin to break apart over time as it is used.
