A bedroom looks incomplete when there is no dresser or chest of drawers. A bedroom without a dressing table, which is nothing but a dresser with an accompanying mirror, always gives you the feeling that something is missing in your room. A dresser or a set of dressers is a very useful piece of furniture. With dressers you can stack all your things in a neat and organized manner. Here are some of the top reasons why people prefer to use dressers- • To add elegance to the bedroom- a dresser always ends up adding value to the appearance of the room. If the dresser matches the color of the bedroom furniture and the style then it completes the overall sophisticated look of the entire room. People go in for beautifully crafted dressers solely for the purpose of adding visual appeal of the room.
Regency, Victorian and Edwardian dressers for bedroom are all made of wood with a quality French polish on the front. The back was usually left unvarnished. Often the drawers would have locks. Today, dressers come in a wide variety of materials including the modern favourite MDF - micro density fibreboard - with a woodstain veneer on the top and sides. This hardwearing easy care engineered wood product can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes. The Swedish firm Ikea has specialised in supplying such dressers for the bedroom in low cost flat pack format for self assembly at home. In days of old you would have to struggle up the stairs with the weighty pre crafted dresser.
The oldest and most traditional forms of dressers are usually smaller, and are used to keep smaller articles and clothing in order. Most of these dressers are used to keep underwear, socks and other trinkets and items like jewelry. Today, many newer designs are larger and have more storage space than usual. These dressers have more drawers and more storage space. Furthermore, many craftsmen are now making dressers with more intricate designs and aesthetic quality and so dressers are valued not just because of their functionality but because of their design value as well. The purposes of your traditional dresser have now been expanded. There are many makes and designs of dressers that are now on sale in the market. Some are already made and ready for pick-up, while some offer personalization services. If you have specific preferences for your dresser, you can now talk to the craftsman and tell him how you want your dresser made. But what designs of dressers are there available that would suit your budget, preferences on design and of course, functionality?
Tall Dresser As indicated by the name, tall dressers are taller and more narrow. They provide a considerable amount of storage capacity without taking up too much bedroom space themselves. These too come in different designs to suit your preference. Wardrobe Armoires Wardrobe armoires are tall and wide dressers that consist of two outward opening panel doors and pull out drawers below. The height of a wardrobe armoire is anywhere between 4 and 6 feet. The upper part of the armoire is usually used for hanging clothes. The Storage Chest Dresser Storage chests are perhaps the oldest type of bedroom furniture that is still in use today. Traditionally made out of thick wood, this is a basic dresser simply made of four wooden walls, a base, and a lid with powerful hinges. These chests vary in type and size and are a useful form of storage in any bedroom, whether a childrens room or a master bed room.
2. Sand and paint your dressers with care Sanding and painting a kitchen dresser is a job which is best done outdoors. It can be a very messy job - and no one wants to breathe paint fumes if they dont have to, so take your dresser outside before you begin. Start by sanding your kitchen dresser thoroughly, since this will help your paint stick to the wood and save you a lot of trouble down the road. Choose the color of paint according to the kitchen paint and kitchen wall tiles you use indoors; the idea is to match or coordinate the color with your existing decor, though it is not necessary to have a precise match.
