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.
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.
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.
