If youd like to get away from flimsy flat pack furniture but still find furniture thats affordable, up-cycled or pre-loved pieces are definitely the way to go. If youre looking for a dresser or sideboard in particular your choice may also be quite limited to older furniture, as while these items are definitely back in fashion they are quite traditional pieces. Many companies now make reproduction French dressers and shabby chic sideboards but they somehow lack the character of original vintage pieces. They are also mass-produced so if youd like something unique in your kitchen that none of your friends or neighbours will have, go for a second-hand or antique piece of furniture.
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.
The last thing you want to do is find a dresser that you really like, purchase it, and bring it home only to discover that it wont fit in your bedroom. For that reason, its an absolute must that you take room measurements before you go shopping for your dresser. Measure the space you have available to store a dresser and only look at dressers that will accommodate those measurements. One final thing you need to take into consideration when shopping for a great dresser is quality. While it great to find an amazing deal you should never go for any piece of furniture thats really cheap. That can only mean one thing. The dresser was not made of quality material and it most likely will not last very long. If you do your homework and shop around you should be able to find a great dresser at an affordable price.
Most baby dressers come as part of a nursery furniture set in all designs and sizes. Choose a dresser with smooth rounded edges to keep your baby or toddler safe. Hand carved and hand painted dressers provide a unique personalized touch. Also, a dresser with more utility drawers is preferable because it can store more items. Make sure the drawers are easy to open and close. A growing trend today is to purchase a dresser combined with another piece of nursery furniture. One unusual set is the combination baby bath and dresser set. A baby bath tub fits on top of the dresser, making it easy to give baby a bath. Another popular combination is the baby changing dresser that has a changing table on top of the dresser.
