What to Look for in a Dresser
Perhaps the most important thing to consider when buying a dresser is the size. In addition to carefully measuring your available space, Forehand suggests asking yourself how much storage you need.
Traditional six-drawer models offer ample storage, though they require a bit more wall space. On the other hand, chests can fit in most bedrooms but don’t provide as much room to stash your clothes. Before you choose one, be sure to measure wherever you plan to place it to ensure it’ll fit against the wall without sticking out.
There are traditional double dressers with two rows of drawers, along with taller models featuring a single stack of drawers. Then you’ve got armoires, chests, and cabinet-dresser combos.
The forehand is partial to double dressers and armoires. “I love the long dresser for its storage options and the amount of extra space you get to show off a great lamp or vase,” she says. “The armoire is great for height and to bring curves to your space—nothing like an arched wardrobe with a great textured or patterned front.”
In addition to the type of dresser, consider the aesthetic. Like all furniture, dressers come in a range of styles, including midcentury-modern, industrial, rustic, farmhouse, glam, minimalist, and traditional. If you’re in the market for something you can use for several years, keep an eye out for versatile colors and designs that complement a range of décor schemes.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of A Tall Vs. Wide Dresser?
With double dressers, you typically have the advantage of more drawers and thus more storage space. While they take up more room, Forehand appreciates that wide dressers offer a larger surface on top for lamps, plants, or other decorative pieces.
Tall dressers usually have five drawers, as opposed to six or seven. You’ll have slightly less storage—but not by a lot—and won’t have to sacrifice as much wall or floor space. Additionally, you can still place decorative objects on top, though you won’t have as big a surface.
How Do You Decide Which Size Dresser To Get?
To figure out what size dresser to get, start by carefully measuring (and re-measuring) your space. Whether you plan to put it in your bedroom or a walk-in closet, this is crucial for ensuring it’ll fit with plenty of clearance for opening drawers and walking around it.
Next, Forehand suggests asking yourself how much storage you need. Are you planning to keep most of your clothes in a dresser, or will you hang a majority in your closet? Do you need additional drawers to store other things like bedding or jewelry? Answering these questions will help you hone in on the proper size.
What Else Can You Use A Dresser For?
As noted above, dressers aren’t just for clothes. You can use them to store virtually anything else that’ll fit, from extra bed linens and shoes to jewelry, accessories, and beauty products. The top doubles as a shelf, providing a spot to place a TV, small plants, candles, framed pictures, or a mirror. Outside of bedroom storage, dressers make great bathroom vanities.
If you’re in the market for a dresser, hopefully, our analysis has been helpful. Whether you’re building your first master bedroom closet or refreshing your space with some new furniture, it’s important to find a dresser that you can count on to keep your clothes neat and organized. Sometimes it really is all about what “feels right, looks right, and is right,” as Lefaivre said back in 2015. We hope our analysis and comparison have been helpful in helping you find that perfect dresser.
