Bedroom Dresser Reviews:Are you looking for a dresser or chest of drawers for your bedroom? Perhaps you are redesigning your kids rooms or just buying buying new furniture for your master bedroom. A solid wood bedroom dresser will make a great addition to any room. Keep in mind that chests of drawers are not just for bedrooms. You will often see them in entryways, family rooms, and living rooms. What style works best for your home decor? How much do they cost? There are several factors you need to consider before you buy anything, but if you keep reading below we will help guide you in the right direction.
Choosing a Bedroom Dresser - Picking out furniture can be very difficult if you are not organized and have a general concept of what you are looking for. Size/Dimensions - All rooms have a limited amount of usable space, so be sure to measure your open area and determine what size dresser you can actually fit into that space. No sense in buying something that overwhelms your room or is just too small. Types - Many bedroom dressers come in 1 of 2 types - waist high and shoulder high. The waist high dressers are great if you want to place them in front of windows (or walls). They only come up to your hips and tend to be wider than the shoulder high dressers. The taller bedroom dressers often have more drawers than the bench height models, but they are not so accommodating for things like mirrors or lamps. Many people put things like television (the new flat panels) on top of the waist high dressers or things like picture frames, flowers, or jewelry boxes. Who is it For? - Are you putting it in your childs room, teenagers room, college dormroom, or a master bedroom? The styles will vary dramatically from kids to young adults to adults. We were able to pick up 2 kids bedroom dressers from a local furniture store for roughly $350/each. They had fun designs on them (boy and girl stuff) and were made with solid wood. I didn't have to assemble them at all which was nice. They both featured 6 pull out drawers all similar in size. Perfect for storing pants, shirts, socks, underwear, pajamas, etc. Prices - The basic dressers will cost $150 to $250 and many of those require some assembly. When you get to $500+ we are talking nicer hardwood and some actual design asthetics. Dressers.com has a selection of those priced at $2000 and up. Some are quite large, bordering on armoire status, while others have a classic antique look with beautiful finishes. Rest assured, there is something for everyones budget. What Stores Carry Them - We found bedroom dressers in Ikea, Target, Walmart, Sears, JC Penneys, Pottery Barn, and a host of other local furniture stores. Even Amazon.com has well over 3000 to choose from on their website. Dresser Reviews - Want to read up on what others have to say about the most popular bedroom dressers?
