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.
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.
The larger the dresser the more expensive it is. You have to choose your oak dresser depending on whether you want one with smaller and more drawers or one with fewer and bigger drawers. Of course the larger the dresser and the more drawers in the dresser the more expensive it will be.
Standard bedroom dressers are usually rectangular in shape and are not that tall. These pieces of furnitures height range from 2-4 feet in height. These are your usual bedroom dressers as they feature drawers and some occasional cabinets depending on the deisn. These dressers are what are usually used to store small clothing articles and small items. Its top can also function as a place for small display items like vases photo frames and small figurines. A standard bedroom dresser is usually placed in rooms that have little space as these pieces are not big and bulky. These dressers come in different designs and can be made from different kinds of wood. The usual combinations are oak and maple since these hardwoods are very durable and are good for keeping clothes. Artistic touches of these simple standard dressers are usually noticed with the knobs and the color and grain combination of the wood used in the dresser.
The emphasis for modern dressers is to de-clutter bedrooms and create a harmonious themed design scheme within the bedroom and often bedroom units including the wardrobe overhead cupboards dressing table and dresser will be made with one design theme and one colour so that everything is colour co-ordinated. Many newer dressers for bedroom have more storage space than dressers of old.
Another important thing to take into consideration when purchasing a dresser is the size dresser you need. The last thing you want to do is find a dresser that you really like purchase it and bring it home only to discover that it wont fit in your bedroom. For that reason its an absolute must that you take room measurements before you go shopping for your dresser. Measure the space you have available to store a dresser and only look at dressers that will accommodate those measurements.
