Bedroom dressers are an important part of any bedroom. Bedroom furniture dressers come in a wide range of designs, sizes, and costs. When shopping for dressers, it is important that you stick to a budget.
You can get a fairly accurate guideline for your budget if you take time to carry out research on the different types of dressers on the market. This way you can see which one is most suitable for you, both in terms of price and functionality. Listed below are a number of types of bedroom dressers. That being said, the dresser types discussed here are not cast in stone – you will often find bedroom dressers that can fall into two or more of the types examined below.
Long dressers are characterized by big drawers with a mirror at the back. They are some of the easiest to find bedroom furniture dressers in furniture stores. They take up a lot of floor and wall space and are thus best suited for spacious bedrooms, and where large storage capacity is required.
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.
As indicated by the name, tall dressers are taller and more narrow. They provide a considerable amount of storage capacity without taking up too much bedroom space themselves. These too come in different designs to suit your preference.
Wardrobe armoires are tall and wide dressers that consist of two outward opening panel doors and pull out drawers below. The height of a wardrobe armoire is anywhere between 4 and 6 feet. The upper part of the armoire is usually used for hanging clothes.
The Storage Chest Dresser
Storage chests are perhaps the oldest type of bedroom furniture that is still in use today. Traditionally made out of thick wood, this is a basic dresser simply made of four wooden walls, a base, and a lid with powerful hinges. These chests vary in type and size and are a useful form of storage in any bedroom, whether a children’s room or a master bed room.
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.
Custom Made Dresser
You might be looking for a specific type of bedroom furniture dresser design that is currently not available on the market. For instance, you have scanned the internet for bedroom furniture dressers designs, found a design you like but could not find a ready made dresser at your local furniture store. Many furniture stores will allow you to place an order for a custom made dresser. This may cost a little more than the “off the shelf” dresser, but at least you will get what you want.
