With oak being a durable and heavy wood with beautiful grain oak dressers are basically stronger and more durable than dressers made from other woods such as mahogany. It is better to get yourself an oak dresser if you have a large and active family which will be opening and closing the dresser frequently as these dressers dont damage easily with so much wear and tear.
There are different types of dressers for you to choose from. The smallest of these dressers are called drawer dressers as you only get to see drawers in these dressers. The largest type of dressers is called door dressers because of the door found in the center of the dresser. This door is used for covering pull out trays and shelves.
This is a less conventional design for dressers. These dressers are big and are fitted with 1-2 drawers that open up like accordions to reveal a large space that is made especially for shoes. The space is divided into small cubicles that carry one shoe each. Most of these dressers are made with maple as maple wood has deodorizing properties. This is a great way to store organize and protect your footwear.These types of dressers are great for walk-in closets and big rooms.
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.
One of the most important things you need to do when looking for the perfect dresser is choose a dresser based on your specific type of bedroom. You need to make sure that the dresser you choose fits in with the overall décor of your bedroom. There are lots of really beautiful dressers available in different styles so it shouldnt be difficult to find one to fit in with your bedroom. Does your bedroom have more of a traditional feel? If so you should choose a dresser with a classic traditional look. Does your bedroom have the elegant feel of a Victorian theme? Try a dresser with a romantic feel enhanced with beautiful attention to the detailed carvings.
The Double Dresser.This is one of the most commonly used bedroom furniture dressers today.

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.
