The Different Types of Bedroom Furniture Dressers Out There





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.

You can get a fairly accurate guideline for your budget if you take time to carry out research on the different types of dressers on the market. This way you can see which one is most suitable for you, both in terms of price and functionality. Listed below are a number of types of bedroom dressers. That being said, the dresser types discussed here are not cast in stone – you will often find bedroom dressers that can fall into two or more of the types examined below.

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.

The more expensive long dresser may be made from mahogany or maple while the lower priced ones are built from pine or oak wood. There is no limit on the type of design you can go for and you can stain the wood in any color to match your overall bedroom theme.

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 children’s room or a master bed room.

The Double Dresser

This is one of the most commonly used bedroom furniture dressers today. Double dressers are short and wide with many drawers – the number of drawers will usually range from six to nine, arranged in rows of twos or threes. Some double dressers come with a dressing mirror attached on top or hanging right above. If you are looking for high capacity storage, then a double dresser will likely do the trick.

Custom Made Dresser

You might be looking for a specific type of bedroom furniture dresser design that is currently not available on the market. For instance, you have scanned the internet for bedroom furniture dressers designs, found a design you like but could not find a ready made dresser at your local furniture store. Many furniture stores will allow you to place an order for a custom made dresser. This may cost a little more than the “off the shelf” dresser, but at least you will get what you want.

Modern apartments are some of the most popular properties today may be because they are affordable to the young adults they are target and are usually in close proximity to what matters most to them. Apartments are also very popular residential options for other target groups for a number of reasons. Unfortunately most come with very small balconies making it hard for some to find the relaxation that should be offered by this area. But with a little creativity, you can still enjoy chilling out on the balcony and have it looking amazing the size notwithstanding. Here are some very simple things you can do to transform that tight space.

Choose few but multipurpose furniture pieces

Chairs, a table or a lounger are some of the items that can be on the balcony considering that is it provided to be your relaxation spot. But with only a small space available in your apartment, it can be hard to even have more than a chair there and still leave some walking space. To counter the size challenge, choose a sitting area or a table that can also serve as a storage area for magazines, books or shoes. You can have a few multifunctional pieces well-organized to make all the difference.

Bring in warmth with hung flowers and plants

Looking at the space you might think that there is nothing much you can do as far as flowers and plants go. The space might be too small for potted plants but you definitely can still enjoy a beautiful with hung flowers so you do not interfere with the small floor space available. The options are numerous but you should ensure that you select ideal sizes and number of plants or flowers so you do not end up overwhelming the tiny space. The point is to make it welcoming and appealing.

Improve whenever possible

The good thing about being creative with your balcony is that you can serve more than one purpose without being too expensive. For instance, if it is too much of a challenge to have a lounger on the balcony or a set of chairs, what about using sturdy wooden crates as your sitting area? They will take up very minimal space and still offer you a comfortable area to relax; you just have to throw a few comfortable cushions and pillows and you are done. The open areas of such crates can serve as storage spaces for other items; you can stack few books or place other items as necessary.

Creativity can transform your small balcony into a peaceful functional haven. Instead of constantly feeling frustrated with what you can not do with the balcony, find out what you can easily do to create a space you will love chilling out in. The options are numerous even for such tiny spaces and you just need to think a little outside the box to have it working to you preferences. You just need to be easy with the number of items otherwise it could end up looking crumped up.
