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.
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.
2. Dressers with mirrors Dressers with mirrors are usually placed in the bedroom as "vanity stations". Most dressers with mirrors are low, about 2-3 feet tall, with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. These dressers have big tops that function as tables to place cosmetics and other trinkets. The cabinets and drawers usually are not deep and spacious as smaller articles are usually placed in them. Newer designs of dressers with mirrors take out the space for the chair and replace them with cabinets. Furthermore, newer designs are taller and have more spacious cabinets. Newer designs seem to combine the functionalities of a vanity station and a storage space for clothes and bigger articles. These dressers are bigger, and so these are suited for bigger rooms with more space. But there are smaller and more compact dressers with mirrors available in the market today. Although smaller, they still provide the same function.
The size of the bedroom dresser will also impact the item you construct. Think about the location where you will be placing the furniture. Measure the area if possible. Knowing how much room you have for the dresser will allow you to determine the best measurements for the woodworking project. Height, width and depth should all be decided when planning to build your bedroom dresser. Bedroom furniture dressers are constructed offering consumers a range of options when it comes to furnishing their bedrooms. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes. It is important that they complement the other furniture in the room for everything to flow appropriately. If you have a tight budget or cannot seem to find the perfect dresser for your home, you can always build your own.
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.
