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.
When choosing a dresser always bear in mind your needs and the design that you want. It is not impossible to get both at the same time you just need to know where and how to look your choices. Set a budget and try not to go over that budget without sacrificing quality.
The dresser for the bedroom as an essential piece of furniture has been much in demand for centuries. Traditionally a gentlemans dresser for his bedroom was made of oak or mahogany usually with two top drawers for stockings gloves cravats handkerchiefs and other accouterments. On the top would be placed lace covers and a mirror that should ideally match the wood of the dresser. The remaining three drawers would be single and capacious enough to carry shirts woollens and breeches.
Dressers are furniture that is usually found in the bedroom. These pieces of furniture are usually fitted with drawers that parallel one another. The number of drawers that dressers contain depends on its size as some may have as much as 8 drawers. These pieces of furniture usually are used for keeping clothing articles and other items organized but other uses can be brought to mind depending on the design and size of the 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.
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.
