Ladies dressers for bedroom were normally made of cherry or walnut and often featured only single drawers. The defining feature of a ladies dresser is the larger bottom drawer which was specifically designed for her to store linens and fine clothes for the day she became wed. Most dressers contain four drawers but they can have as many as eight or even twelve. Among the most famous cabinet makers of quality English dressers was Thomas Chippendale whose fine cabinets are still much sought after.
The more expensive long dresser may be made from mahogany or maple while the lower priced ones are built from pine or oak wood. There is no limit on the type of design you can go for and you can stain the wood in any color to match your overall bedroom theme.
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.
Regency Victorian and Edwardian dressers for bedroom are all made of wood with a quality French polish on the front. The back was usually left unvarnished. Often the drawers would have locks. Today dressers come in a wide variety of materials including the modern favourite MDF - micro density fibreboard - with a woodstain veneer on the top and sides. This hardwearing easy care engineered wood product can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes.
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.
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.
