Lamontagne. Dressers. October 01st , 2017.
Before buying a dresser, ensure that you have the measurements of the area you need to place the dresser in. Make a note of the height, depth and width. Also, if you want to keep the dresser in the corner of a wall, then make sure there is enough space for the doors to open. Check the product descriptions closely and check if the dresser can fit in the given size range.You must think about how you are going to use the dresser every day. Think of the smaller details as to how you would keep your clothes, shoes, accessories and other things that you would prefer storing in your dresser. If you are short of hanging space, then you can keep your folded clothes in the deep dresser. Some would prefer dressers with small drawers where they would help store lingerie, hosiery, make-up and other bathroom essentials.
The dresser for the bedroom as an essential piece of furniture has been much in demand for centuries. Traditionally, a gentlemans dresser for his bedroom was made of oak or mahogany, usually with two top drawers for stockings, gloves, cravats handkerchiefs and other accouterments. On the top would be placed lace covers and a mirror, that should ideally match the wood of the dresser. The remaining three drawers would be single and capacious enough to carry shirts, woollens and breeches.Ladies dressers for bedroom were normally made of cherry or walnut and often featured only single drawers. The defining feature of a ladies dresser is the larger bottom drawer which was specifically designed for her to store linens and fine clothes for the day she became wed.
When looking for a dresser, quality must top your list. For a high durability, solid wood is always the best choice; even in the backings and drawers. If leg and foot are made of wood, each foot of the dresser should be carved as a single unit.Staples, glues and nails which are used as dressers joinery are signs of a weak make and bring down the quality. Check the sturdiness, by checking the drawers, door knobs and inner fittings. Look for any creaking sounds or if the drawers are getting stuck and the doors close to a good fit. Also check whether the wood is kiln dried, to prevent it from peeling and splitting.
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.
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.
