Standard bedroom dressers are usually rectangular in shape and are not that tall. These pieces of furnitures height range from 2-4 feet in height. These are your usual bedroom dressers as they feature drawers and some occasional cabinets, depending on the deisn. These dressers are what are usually used to store small clothing articles and small items. Its top can also function as a place for small display items like vases, photo frames and small figurines. A standard bedroom dresser is usually placed in rooms that have little space as these pieces are not big and bulky. These dressers come in different designs and can be made from different kinds of wood. The usual combinations are oak and maple since these hardwoods are very durable and are good for keeping clothes. Artistic touches of these simple standard dressers are usually noticed with the knobs and the color and grain combination of the wood used in the dresser.
Along with a crib, your baby nursery furniture should include a baby dresser. Baby dressers provide a convenient way to store your babys tiny outfits and other nursery essentials. There are many styles and sizes of dressers available today to fit any nursery decor. Nursery dressers are usually meant to be used for a long time, from the time the child is an infant up to his or her teen years. For this reason, baby dressers that are made of strong wood are much preferred. In addition, dressers with adjustable shelves should be chosen to accommodate the childs growing needs.
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.
Another style of handmade dressers that is still popular today is the Shaker style. Originating in the late 1700s, the Shaker style is revered for its clean lines, durable features and innovative joinery methods. Distinctive features include an arched apron and tapered legs, which looks graceful and unimposing. Originally minimal in embellishments, artisans today will play with the tradition by adding modern touches, like blending types of wood in the paneling. Contrasting natural woods, like maple and walnut, a craftsman can really highlight the beauty of the panel doors and drawers. Intentionally practical, these sideboard Shaker style dressers are perfect for storing dining room china, but the pieces of furniture are elegant enough on their own.
They are just as beautiful as they are functional, and an artisan can build a variety of unique handmade dressers by using a mixed bag of designs and fashions that were in style over the course of hundreds of years and making them popular still today. Modern handmade bedroom style dressers usually combine styles, as you can see in the Queen Anne, Shaker and Mission styles, to match the theme of the matching bedroom set. Other styles of dressers frequently highlight a mixture of natural woods to highlight the outer frame of the design of the piece of furniture to make a beautiful splash that can go in any style of dining room.
