Dressers Buying Guide

You will spend your money wisely when you pick a solidly made, well-designed dresser. Dressers are the workhorses of the home. They store clothes in the bedroom, or course, but they can also hold hats and mittens in the entry or extra table linens in the dining room. When you buy a dresser for your bedroom, choose one with timeless style, so that years down the road you can place it wherever you have a storage need.

Types of Dressers

Types of Dressers

Unless you have ample drawer storage in a closet-organizing system, you'll need at least one dresser in your bedroom. Many bedroom sets are sold with dressers, but you can also buy them separately based on your needs. A tall person might prefer a 50-inch-tall chest to avoid stooping to reach all the drawers. A couple might like a dresser with two stacks of drawers. Keep the following types in mind, then choose one -- or more -- with the number of drawers you need.

Chests

Chests are tall pieces of furniture (reaching chest-high on a person, hence the name) with a single stack of drawers. There are typically at least four drawers in the stack, but there can be many more depending on how tall the piece is and how large or small the drawers are. Most chests have drawers that start at floor level, while others, called highboys, have a stack of drawers held aloft on legs.

Dressers

Sometimes the term "dresser" is applied to chests as well, but a dresser is really a low, wide piece of furniture that is typically no more than 35 inches tall. It can have a single stack of drawers or side-by-side columns, and it usually has no more than four drawers in a stack. A dresser often comes with a mirror, which can hang on the wall above or be attached to the dresser itself.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Of course you want a dresser that looks nice, melds with or matches the other furniture in the room, and fits the space you have devoted to it. But beyond its looks, a dresser should be well made. After all, you'll be opening and closing the drawers several times a day for the entire time you own it. Quality dressers can even be handed down through a family's generations, so choose wisely.

Wood Quality & Finish

Check the piece's tags or ask a knowledgeable sales person: What kind of wood is the dresser made from, and was it kiln-dried? A dresser made from a hardwood, such as oak or walnut, will resist dings better than a softwood such as pine. There are also different strengths of particleboard, which is pressed-together chips of wood, so knock on the side of the dresser with your knuckles to listen for a deep, solid sound; this will indicate a hard material. Additionally, wood that is kiln-dried is aged to be strong and hardy. Next, check the overall finish. Does it cover just the drawer fronts, or does it also cover the drawer sides so when you pull them out you see nicely finished wood? Is the finish on the top of the piece, where you’ll rest watches, phones, keys, and other scratchy items, sealed and protected?

Hardware

The hardware on the dresser includes knobs and pulls on the fronts of the drawers, which should be securely attached and attractive. It also includes the mechanisms that let you pull the drawers out, called drawer slides or guides. Check the quality of these by pulling out drawers several times. They should slide easily without derailing or getting stuck. Some drawers on high-end dressers have soft-close mechanisms, which close the drawer for you. Drawer stops are important features for a dresser in a child's room and for deep drawers holding heavy items. The stop prevents the drawer from extending all the way out of the dresser, causing the dresser to tip forward.

Construction & Materials

Quality dressers are finished nicely even in spots you don't always see. For example, the sides of the drawers will be stained to match the rest of the dresser. The back of the dresser will be the same wood as the sides and front; if you are planning to float the dresser at the end of the bed or in a place where the back will be seen, check for this finishing detail. Also, pull the drawers out completely and look at how the corners are constructed. With constant use, the corners of a drawer bear the most strain and can pull apart. Are the corners securely attached? Interlocking dovetail joints are ideal but not always available.

Capacity

Always check the dresser against the items you want to store. A tall man will need drawers deep enough for his large-size sweaters. A woman might want shallow lingerie-size drawers. Think about what you want to store -- even measure a pile of your clothes -- before you go shopping.
