Dressers. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 19:12:55 PM
So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only, but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision, as investing in oak dressers, or any form of oak furniture, is an investment for a life.An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course, your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times, and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving, but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.There are different types of dressers for you to choose from. The smallest of these dressers are called drawer dressers as you only get to see drawers in these dressers. The largest type of dressers is called door dressers, because of the door found in the center of the dresser. This door is used for covering pull out trays and shelves.
Shabby chic dressers and sideboards make a fantastic addition to any style kitchen, contemporary or vintage. The shabby chic style seems to have become very popular recently, as many home and design magazines feature this style regularly, and interior designers on TV are all using it for home makeovers! If you like this style of furniture its a great way to add some originality and individuality to your home, as most shabby chic dressers that you can buy are re-used or up-cycled from antiques or second-hand dressers. Dressers were first popular in the seventeenth century in Europe and during this period furniture was handcrafted and generally well-made. Antique or vintage furniture was usually built to last and to be hard-wearing. It is only in recent years that we have become a nation of flat-pack-loving consumers!
French and English dressers were also made from different types of wood, and this can make a difference to their appearance. Some later dressers have glazed panels, and some just have shelves, which were originally for displaying plates and china on. Nowadays dressers are used for many different functions, rather than just being display cabinets. Rather than having a fitted kitchen a painted dresser or shabby chic sideboard can make a wonderful addition to a French farmhouse-style bespoke kitchen with free-standing units. Bespoke kitchens often represent the ultimate in luxury and style, but you too can have one without spending a fortune. Shabby chic is the perfect style to choose to create your own bespoke kitchen with affordable pieces of furniture, including an antique or vintage dresser or sideboard.
