The Double Dresser.This is one of the most commonly used bedroom furniture dressers today. Double dressers are short and wide with many drawers - the number of drawers will usually range from six to nine arranged in rows of twos or threes. 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.
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.
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.
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.
Extra-tall dressers are dressers that go beyond 4 feet in height. These dressers feature larger storage spaces as they can have as much as 10 drawers. These types of dressers are so versatile because of their large storage space. You can use them to store clothing articles and other items like jewelry cosmetics books and other trinkets. Most of these dressers are made of hardwood and so they are very tough and long lasting. If you need extra shelf and storage space in your bedroom or in your home then an extra-tall dresser is the one for you.
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.
