A dresser is more than just a place to store your clothing and valuables. It is a focal piece of your bedroom that deserves lots of attention. Choose the wrong size and the whole space will look off-kilter and dysfunctional. The wrong material, design and style and, well you get the picture. Determining which type of dresser to buy can be a difficult decision, especially due to the wide variety of options that are available. At Feathers, we carry an enormous selection for our clients, because we know wants and needs vary considerably!
For those in need of a space-saving yet elegant solution, for example, our Linen Fold Cabinet is an ideal choice. Equipped with two front swinging doors and multiple rows inside, it provides more than enough room for placing sheets, blankets and clothing. The Savannah 3-Drawer Chest sports a similar compact-design, but features a rustic finish that complements spaces with traditional themes.
On the other end of the spectrum lies the Salvador Buffet. Due to its length and rectangular shape, it may look more like a table than a dresser. What makes this piece stand out, aside from its grand size of course is its one of a kind, intricately designed leg posts. The dresser is outfitted with four pull-out drawers and a fully functional lower shelf, which offers ample storage space.
When it comes to purchasing any furniture item, from tables to sofas to dressers, the first thing to do is make the appropriate measurements. From the perspective of free space, the length and width dimensions matter most. However, you will need to think about how high you want the dresser to be. Are you shopping for the master, child or guest room? What do you plan on placing on top of the dresser? These are the questions to ask before settling on an option, and we will help you make the right decision.
Once you know what dresser size is going to work best, the next thing to do is select the material, drawer layout and design style. Always go with real wood (the only kind Feathers has) instead of its cheaper particle counterpart. It will last a lifetime and looks so much better. For the color, it is generally a good idea to match the room’s existing theme, unless of course you are looking to re-design. Larger drawers are better for clothing, but do not tend to accommodate jewelry and other valuables well. If you are going to be storing multiple items in the dresser, opt for one that provides different drawer sizes. Last but certainly not least is the style. Each of the pieces we mentioned was made to suit a unique theme, so be sure to speak with one of our associates about their recommendations.
