Dear All,

Cupboard. Closet. Cabinet. Chest. Case.
I always get confused, especially in speaking, when I want to use one of these words to describe pieces of furniture.
Really need your help in pointing out the differences between them.

Thanks!

    Welcome!
    This is a complex subject without an easy, succinct answer :( . If you get familiar with the search box at the top of each page, you will be able to delve deeply. Here is a list of threads when you type cupboard and you begin to see some of the other words. Type each one separately and you'll likely find more information on the overlaps (a chest can have drawers but not necessarily etc. ).

    Many thanks, sdgraham and JulianStuart!

    Yeah. It is my mistake. I should have browsed first.

    Anyway, your efforts are appreciated
