Containers are used for storing various types of owned items. They are a common requirement for nobles and they are also good for increasing the value of a room. Each container holds a varying number of items. Dwarves may walk through tiles with containers.
If a dwarf does not own a container in his bedroom, he or she will leave any possessions on the floor.
Containers are named differently depending on what they are made of:
Bags are a special type of box. While they can be built as furniture, they are more commonly used by dwarves to store seeds, mill plants at a millstone or quern, or collect sand. Dwarves have a habit of filling bags with seeds whenever possible, so, typically, many of them need to be made if they are going to be used for other purposes.
