Long Dresser. Long dressers are characterized by big drawers with a mirror at the back. They are some of the easiest to find bedroom furniture dressers in furniture stores. They take up a lot of floor and wall space and are thus best suited for spacious bedrooms and where large storage capacity is required.
Bedroom dressers are an important part of any bedroom. Bedroom furniture dressers come in a wide range of designs sizes and costs. When shopping for dressers it is important that you stick to a budget.
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.
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.
When choosing a dresser always bear in mind your needs and the design that you want. It is not impossible to get both at the same time you just need to know where and how to look your choices. Set a budget and try not to go over that budget without sacrificing quality.
The next thing you need to consider is size. Its very important to know what size dresser you need for your bedroom. After all you dont want to purchase a dresser that you absolutely love only to get it home and find that it does not fit in your bedroom. While youll probably be able to exchange it thats still a total waste of your time so always be sure to take room measurements before you go shopping and pay close attention to the size of the dresser youre interested in purchasing.
