So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only, but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision, as investing in oak dressers, or any form of oak furniture, is an investment for a life. An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course, your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times, and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving, but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.
Safety There are some safety concerns when buying dressers for kids especially if you are buying for young children. In these cases, it is often best to avoid those with sharp edges because these can lead to injury and accidents; something that is definitely best avoided wherever possible. Rounded edges and corners mean that if your son or daughter does bang into them then the damage should be minimal. Matching Accessories As well as dressers you can also buy items like nightstands and even beds to match the design and looks of the dresser that you choose. Dressers for kids are typically colourful and fun and ensuring that they are part of a set or that you can find other items to match it is possible to create an equally fun, modern, and stylish finish to your son or daughters bedroom.
3. Bed end dressers This piece of furniture is a cross between a bed end chest and a dresser. These dressers are the smallest yet, as they only reach a height of a foot and a half. They are specifically placed at the foot of the bed. They resemble bed end chests only that instead of a big opening on top, you find drawers. These kinds of dressers are perfect for kids rooms and play areas. You can use them to store small pieces of clothes like underwear, socks or towels, and also store small toys, books and coloring materials.
Originally minimal in embellishments, artisans today will play with the tradition by adding modern touches, like blending types of wood in the paneling. Contrasting natural woods, like maple and walnut, a craftsman can really highlight the beauty of the panel doors and drawers. Intentionally practical, these sideboard Shaker style dressers are perfect for storing dining room china, but the pieces of furniture are elegant enough on their own. Studio craftsmen make Shaker style sideboards look more contemporary by taking different types of natural wood and using the contrasting colors to distinguish subtle features of the piece of furniture. Darker wood might be used to make the knobs stand out, and glass paneling can even be used for the doors, which was not previously done. Studio craftsmen create handmade dressers that are very different than mass-produced dressers because artisans are free to design and build dressers that are unique and special for each and every client. Mass produced dressers cant be that special because they need to appeal to a wider variety of tastes. Working directly with a craftsman will let you create something together that speaks to your specific interests and style.
They are just as beautiful as they are functional, and an artisan can build a variety of unique handmade dressers by using a mixed bag of designs and fashions that were in style over the course of hundreds of years and making them popular still today. Modern handmade bedroom style dressers usually combine styles, as you can see in the Queen Anne, Shaker and Mission styles, to match the theme of the matching bedroom set. Other styles of dressers frequently highlight a mixture of natural woods to highlight the outer frame of the design of the piece of furniture to make a beautiful splash that can go in any style of dining room.
