Assembly for the Manhattan Dresser is so simple, even a child can set it up without any safety hazards. With user friendly directions and easy to connect parts that do not require heavy amount of tools, the Manhattan can be set up in a manner of 30 minutes or less. Most of the parts are already assembled together, so there are not a lot of necessary parts to put together. The individual drawers are built on a roller glide mechanism, so the drawers wont fall out of the dresser when pulled to its maximum distance. Most people will tell you that this is an improvement over the old way drawers were built. Drawers without the roller glide, especially on 6 dresser drawers, are a safety hazard not just for adults, but children as well. Children can safely open a drawer on this product without adult supervision.
Sometimes, dressers are chosen and made to suit a theme chosen for the room, and sometimes it is purposely designed to stand out in the room because of its aesthetic qualities. The oldest and most traditional forms of dressers are usually smaller, and are used to keep smaller articles and clothing in order. Most of these dressers are used to keep underwear, socks and other trinkets and items like jewelry. Today, many newer designs are larger and have more storage space than usual. These dressers have more drawers and more storage space. Furthermore, many craftsmen are now making dressers with more intricate designs and aesthetic quality and so dressers are valued not just because of their functionality but because of their design value as well. The purposes of your traditional dresser have now been expanded. There are many makes and designs of dressers that are now on sale in the market. Some are already made and ready for pick-up, while some offer personalization services. If you have specific preferences for your dresser, you can now talk to the craftsman and tell him how you want your dresser made. But what designs of dressers are there available that would suit your budget, preferences on design and of course, functionality?
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.
Second-hand dressers and sideboards can also be painted in any colour of your choice to match your kitchen or home interior, and make them even more unique to you. Once they have been painted you can distress them by sanding to make them really shabby chic in style. People often refer to French farmhouse style or English country cottage style dressers but there are many different styles of antique dressers out there, from many periods and many different areas of Europe. French-style shabby chic dressers tend to be very decorative and elaborate, whereas English country cottage dressers are plainer and often heavier in appearance. Whichever style you prefer the choice is endless, as there are very few antique dressers the same out there. Each one differs slightly due to being hand-made rather than mass-produced in the way that reproductions are.
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.
