It is important that you get a bedroom dresser that will match the rest of your bedroom decor. Purchasing your furniture in a set will ensure that you have matching colors for the bed frame, night stands, dresser, and armoire. If you choose to make your own or buy each piece separately, be sure to get the same shades of wood. For example, you would not want to purchase a cherry dresser to go with an oak bed. Likewise, you want to make sure that each are made with a similar design and materials. It can be a good idea to build your own bedroom dresser. This will allow you to have one that will be most beneficial to you. Money can also be saved by constructing your own furniture. Consider the purposes you want your dresser to have. Determine how much clothing you wish to fold and place into the piece of furniture. Do you want to store all foldable clothing in the dresser, or just undergarments, socks, and pajamas? The amount of items you want to put inside a dresser will help decide what shape to give the piece.
There are a variety of types of bedroom furniture dressers available on the market. The one you choose for your room may be based on your needs, as well as your budget. If you have a history with woodworking, you may want to consider building your own dresser. The advantages of dressers are many, the main thing is that they will allow you to have a piece of furniture that will allow you to effectively store your clothing and other items. A particularly popular dresser is the long dresser. These are larger in width than in height, and typically offer 2-3 drawers on each side. This is beneficial if you and your spouse will be sharing drawer space. Another popular style is the tall bedroom furniture dressers, also known as a chest of drawers (these are slimmer in width). They can offer 4-6 drawers, all stacked on top of each other.
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.
Among the many styles of handmade wooden furniture that are still favored today is the Queen Anne style. The Queen Anne style of handmade wooden furniture was first made popular in America between 1720 to 1760 and can be distinguished from other styles by the signature cyma, or S-curve, that is seen in the feet of a dresser or chair, and may also be worked into other parts of a piece of furniture. These S-curves blend well with modern styles of decorating by softening the look of a heavy piece of furniture with the gentle curves. The Queen Anne style of furniture is historically made from walnut, which is definitely a Colonial American tradition. Handmade dressers today are made from all kinds of wood, like butternut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Like walnut, butternut wood is prized for its soft, light yellow highlights and darker grains.
The dresser for the bedroom as an essential piece of furniture has been much in demand for centuries. Traditionally, a gentlemans dresser for his bedroom was made of oak or mahogany, usually with two top drawers for stockings, gloves, cravats handkerchiefs and other accouterments. On the top would be placed lace covers and a mirror, that should ideally match the wood of the dresser. The remaining three drawers would be single and capacious enough to carry shirts, woollens and breeches. Ladies dressers for bedroom were normally made of cherry or walnut and often featured only single drawers. The defining feature of a ladies dresser is the larger bottom drawer which was specifically designed for her to store linens and fine clothes for the day she became wed. Most dressers contain four drawers but they can have as many as eight or even twelve. Among the most famous cabinet makers of quality English dressers was Thomas Chippendale, whose fine cabinets are still much sought after.
