How to Choose a Dresser
The first step to choosing the best dresser for your space is assessing your storage needs. How much clothing do you have? Do you have a closet? Do you have space under your bed to store things? If you don’t have a closet, an armoire or wardrobe might be the best choice, as one of these large dressers can offer you the most storage space for your clothing and accessories out of any of these options. If you do have a closet but it’s small, or if you rotate your wardrobe depending on the season, a large dresser can be a great option for storing your most-worn items where you can reach them easily, leaving space in your closet for out-of-season garments and other items you’d rather keep stored away. If floor space is an issue, consider a chest of drawers rather than a dresser, and pair it with a storage bench placed at the foot of your bed. Storage benches are great storage solutions for extra bedding, but can also conveniently store other things, like shoes, books, toys, and more.
Once you have a dresser type picked out, you have the freedom to choose the dresser styles and materials that speak to you. At Design Within Reach, shop wood dressers with stone tops and sleek mid-century modern dressers that will add a touch of functional mid-century modern design to your space.
