Be careful of cheap oak dressers. Remember that oak dressers are usually expensive. If you find a piece that is rather cheap beware as there are many manufacturers who use cheaper quality wood to manufacture the dresser and then coat it with oak veneer. With the help of these veneers this cheaper dresser looks very much like an oak dresser.
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.
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.
