The Zinc Top Cabinet gives you ample storage for a kitchen or dining room. This is a very clever design because it is actually fitted with doors which are disguised as drawers. The ornate façade gives the appearance of an apothecary’s chest so is full of vintage charm. It even features metal slots for content descriptions. The wood used is a combination of pine and MDF which is topped with zinc. This kitchen chest has been distressed to perfection and will only look better with ageing. The measurements are 91cm high and 160cm wide with a depth of 45cm – £995 from Graham & Green.

The Metal Topped Eight Drawer Storage Unit has real drawers! This gives you bags of room with two fixed and six portable bucket drawers which is a good idea. It’s very versatile and can be used in the kitchen, dining room or conservatory. The wood is untreated fir so it’s advisable to use inside only. The top features a distressed galvanised metal top which is purposefully worn for interest. It comes already assembled, phew! The overall measurements are 81cm high, 90cm wide and 40cm in depth. The drawers are 16cm in depth – £325 from Cox and Cox.
