Dressers. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 13:07:34 PM
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.
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.
The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. 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.
