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.
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.
Bedroom dressers are an important part of any bedroom. Bedroom furniture dressers come in a wide range of designs sizes and costs. When shopping for dressers it is important that you stick to a budget.
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.
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.
The color you choose for your dresser is just as important as the style you select. The wrong color dresser can totally throw off the look of your bedroom. For example a bright red dresser would be the wrong choice for a bedroom with a classic traditional theme and a neutral colored dresser would look all wrong in a modern contemporary bedroom. Most dressers are available in wood stains like oak cherry and mahogany. If you find yourself a little unsure about color a wood stain is probably the safest route to choose as they are the easiest to blend in with just about any style of room. No matter what color you choose make sure its not overpowering the rest of the room.
