Modern dressers still feature mirrors but they are usually placed as "vanity stations" with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. The spacious work tops of modern dressers are designed for keeping cosmetics and other trinkets on them without appearing messy or cluttered.
Be careful of cheap oak dressers. Remember that oak dressers are usually expensive. If you find a piece that is rather cheap beware as there are many manufacturers who use cheaper quality wood to manufacture the dresser and then coat it with oak veneer. With the help of these veneers this cheaper dresser looks very much like an oak dresser.
Custom Made Dresser. You might be looking for a specific type of bedroom furniture dresser design that is currently not available on the market. For instance you have scanned the internet for bedroom furniture dressers designs found a design you like but could not find a ready made dresser at your local furniture store. Many furniture stores will allow you to place an order for a custom made dresser. This may cost a little more than the "off the shelf" dresser but at least you will get what you want.
Long Dresser. Long dressers are characterized by big drawers with a mirror at the back. They are some of the easiest to find bedroom furniture dressers in furniture stores. They take up a lot of floor and wall space and are thus best suited for spacious bedrooms and where large storage capacity is required.
There are many makes and designs of dressers that are now on sale in the market. Some are already made and ready for pick-up while some offer personalization services. If you have specific preferences for your dresser you can now talk to the craftsman and tell him how you want your dresser made. But what designs of dressers are there available that would suit your budget preferences on design and of course functionality?
An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.
