In the world of bedroom furniture, the bed almost always overshadows your dresser. Let’s face it, when you walk into a room the first thing you notice is the bed. Perhaps this is because a bed’s large size makes it the focal point of the room, or maybe it is simply a matter that the bed is where we get our rest in preparation for the next day. Whatever the reason, bedroom furniture dressers seem to always just sit there in the background hardly getting noticed at all until one needs them.
The truth is, while in the bedroom the bed may be king, dressers serve several vital and necessary functions. Not only do they keep our clothes neat, clean and in reasonable order. But they also serve as a compartment for make-up, change, and in some rooms televisions and CD players. Their drawers may also hold valuable treasures we don’t want to have out on display and depending on the style can add charm and warmth to any bedroom. That is why it is necessary to choose your bedroom furniture dressers with care.
Many times dressers come as part of a bedroom set that include the bed, the night stands and end tables. While this is a convenient way to purchase furniture it is not always the best way. Many times the dressers in furniture sets look nice but lack the draw space or even size you might actually need to help keep your items in your bedroom organized.
While it is important to match your bedroom furniture in order for your room’s decor to shine through there are times when purchasing your bedroom set, that matching the pieces individually may result in a more charming and more functional bedroom. When buying furniture for the bedroom, make sure that the dresser you purchase is not only well built but that the draws are deep enough to store your clothing and other items you plan in storing in your dresser drawers.
You also need to ensure that your dresser will fit the space it will occupy in your bedroom. Knowing whether you need a short and wide dresser or a tall and narrow dresser will help you to find a dresser that will help balance your room perfectly. You will also want to decide if a dresser with a mirror attached or one without a mirror will work best with your bedroom’s decor.
Most furniture stores have a variety of sizes and shapes of dressers that will match various beds so you need not worry that you won’t be able to find a dresser to match a particular bed. It is simply a matter of knowing what you want and need in a dresser.
So go ahead, allow that bed to be king, because although often overlooked, bedroom furniture dressers can also add to the attractiveness of your room and help keep it organized as well.
