In order to create a more contemporary look for a dresser, an artisan will blend different woods together. Making hardwood knobs out of different woods and materials is an easy way to give any traditional style of furniture a unique look. Darker dovetail details on the top of the dresser or on the paneling also brings a simple accent of elegance to an otherwise simple dresser. Studio furniture designers enjoy the freedom to play with combinations of knobs, joinery methods and natural woods to satisfy each and every clients personality and style. Another style of handmade dressers that is still popular today is the Shaker style. Originating in the late 1700s, the Shaker style is revered for its clean lines, durable features and innovative joinery methods. Distinctive features include an arched apron and tapered legs, which looks graceful and unimposing.
The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. The body of the dresser, or the carcass, is held together with dovetail joints that add an element of design as well as making it extremely strong. Other dressers employ frame and panel construction that is highlighted by mortise and tenon joinery that is accented with wooden pins. Combining both techniques for any style of handmade dresser is what makes the carcass durable and the drawers move in and out smoothly.
For utility purposes- dressers provide storage space for keeping clothes, shoes, linen or children s things. Some things are stored much more easily in a dresser rather than a full cupboard. Things can be kept in a more organized manner when kept in this piece of furniture and when they are kept in a neat way they can also be found with ease. • To fill space in a room- when you have a large bedroom then just the bed and the wardrobe are not enough to take up all the space of the room. The only other piece of furniture which you can logically place in the bedroom is a dresser. The dresser looks just right in the bedroom and it is useful in storing many things as well. When wardrobe space is insufficient- sometimes it makes more sense to put things in a dresser instead of placing an additional cupboard in the room, which invariably takes up a lot of space. To keep things which are needed frequently- people like to store their dressers with things that they use every day or very frequently like shoes, baby stuff, school things and more. These are all very good reasons for adding a dresser to every room in your home.
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.
Choosing The Right Size Modern dressers come in a host of different dimensions and sizes too. Almost all are rectangular because this shape fits easily into the room, resting up against the wall of the room. With modern designed and beautiful looking dressers for kids you can enjoy the greatest quality while finding a dresser that will look at home in any childs bedroom. Shape And Dimensions However, some designs may use slanted or even wavy edges on the sides of the dresser - these can create an even more effectively visual look but you should ensure that this is really what you want before buying them because if youre strapped for space then they may prove to be more difficult to fit in a room than you imagined.
