Dressers are often an afterthought when it comes to bedroom furniture. We give most of our attention to selecting a fabulous bed frame and plush mattress. After all, the word bed is in the room’s name, so it’s not surprising that the other furniture isn’t regarded as highly. While the bed is the focal point, the dresser plays a vital role, and without it, enjoying the time you spend in the bedroom would be difficult.
Selecting the wrong dresser can leave your room in disarray with clothes scattered around. The right dresser will provide the storage you need. So, how do you choose the one that best fits your lifestyle and your space? Well, you can start by determining what you’re going to store in the dresser.
The drawers should be deep if you’re storing bulky items. Or, you can opt for a combination of shelves and drawers if you’re storing both bulky and standard clothing. A felt-lined drawer with dividers is perfect if you plan to keep jewelry in the dresser.
Once you know what you’re storing, the next step is to choose a size. A large dresser or bureau works if you have a lot of clothing to put away. A tall, narrow dresser will work if you don’t have a mound of clothes to fold and tuck into drawers. They’re perfect for undergarments and don’t take up much floor space.
You can shop dresser styles on our site as well. Choose from classic, modern, traditional, and more. There is a wide range of different name-brand designs, so you’re sure to find the dresser you want on our site no matter what you prefer.
The piece you choose should make life easier, and a dresser mirror combination can do just that. Most of us get dressed in our bedrooms, and the mirror allows us to adjust our look before leaving home. The extra surface space the dresser provides gives you a space for any hair and beauty products you use regularly. That way, you can also use the mirror to fix your hair and apply make-up as you get ready for work or a night out with friends.
You can also keep decorative accents and framed photos of family events on the dresser’s surface to give the room a more personal feel. Keep your souvenirs from trips you’ve taken within view to remind you of the beautiful places you’ve been.
Have you chosen a color? Be sure to pick a color you love since you will have to look at it every day. The bedroom is one space in the home where you don’t have to consider anyone else’s likes or dislikes. Use a vision board to sort through the styles and colors you prefer. If you’re adding the piece to existing décor, keep the cohesiveness by finding a complementary piece that blends with the color scheme.
The right dresser is waiting for you to choose it, so don’t wait any longer and start shopping today.
