The next thing you need to consider is size. Its very important to know what size dresser you need for your bedroom. After all you dont want to purchase a dresser that you absolutely love only to get it home and find that it does not fit in your bedroom. While youll probably be able to exchange it thats still a total waste of your time so always be sure to take room measurements before you go shopping and pay close attention to the size of the dresser youre interested in purchasing.
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.
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.
