So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision as investing in oak dressers or any form of oak furniture is an investment for a life.
The Double Dresser.This is one of the most commonly used bedroom furniture dressers today. Double dressers are short and wide with many drawers - the number of drawers will usually range from six to nine arranged in rows of twos or threes. Some double dressers come with a dressing mirror attached on top or hanging right above. If you are looking for high capacity storage then a double dresser will likely do the trick.
The Swedish firm Ikea has specialised in supplying such dressers for the bedroom in low cost flat pack format for self assembly at home. In days of old you would have to struggle up the stairs with the weighty pre crafted dresser.
Another thing that is important to take into consideration when choosing the right dresser for your bedroom is color. What color would you like your dresser to be? While many dressers are made of wood and therefore come in different wood stains like cherry oak or mahogany there are also dressers made of different materials that are available in every color of the rainbow. The important thing to remember with color selection is that you want your dresser to blend in with everything else in your bedroom. You want the dresser to look as though it is a part of a bedroom collection even if it is not. Choose a neutral color thats not distracting from your overall décor.
This piece of furniture is a cross between a bed end chest and a dresser. These dressers are the smallest yet as they only reach a height of a foot and a half. They are specifically placed at the foot of the bed. They resemble bed end chests only that instead of a big opening on top you find drawers. These kinds of dressers are perfect for kids rooms and play areas. You can use them to store small pieces of clothes like underwear socks or towels and also store small toys books and coloring materials.
The more expensive long dresser may be made from mahogany or maple while the lower priced ones are built from pine or oak wood. There is no limit on the type of design you can go for and you can stain the wood in any color to match your overall bedroom theme.
