If you plan on using your dresser highly, use quality hardwood that will be able to withstand the usual wear and tear and will not scratch easily.

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.

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.
