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.
This piece of furniture is a cross between a bed end chest and a dresser. These dressers are the smallest yet as they only reach a height of a foot and a half. They are specifically placed at the foot of the bed. They resemble bed end chests only that instead of a big opening on top you find drawers. These kinds of dressers are perfect for kids rooms and play areas. You can use them to store small pieces of clothes like underwear socks or towels and also store small toys books and coloring materials.
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 final thing to remember when you purchasing a new dresser for your bedroom is always check for quality and style. Be sure to look at the materials the dresser is made of and test the dresser for overall durability. If you take your time do your research and comparison shop youre sure to find a quality dresser for your bedroom at a great price.
Adding a dresser to your bedroom can be just the right solution to your need for additional storage space. If you find that youre running out of closet space a dresser can give you the extra storage that you need while also giving you a place to put a mirror and other personal items. However what one person needs in a dresser can be very different from the next person. For example you may need a dresser strictly for storage or you may need one to double as a bedroom vanity. Therefore before you go shopping its very important to know exactly what you need in a dresser. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect dresser for your bedroom.
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.
