Dressers & Chest of Drawers

Chest of drawers shapes and materials

Have you ever had to find something but just cannot remember where it was placed? There are too many potential surfaces it could be, and looking through each one is such a hassle. What if you could have one organised space for multiple items? Also known as a chest of drawers, dressers offer multiple compact storage spaces for all your knick-knacks in one place. Organise your items easily with a multitude of drawers of various sizes for all your different types of items, be it clothes, cosmetics, or just miscellaneous.

Dressers can come as tall or wide dressers, depending on how many drawers it has or the design style. When deciding on what type of dresser to opt for, it always helps to plan where you would want to place the dresser beforehand and measure the area to have an idea of what size the dresser can fit. Sometimes, tall or wide dressers can have the same number of drawers despite their size differences, so ensure the measurements are correct.

Extra storage for the household

While some furniture pieces have small compartments for item storage, dressers provide more drawers made to provide ample storage space. Organise your extra clothes or books with ease in a multitude of drawers, choosing between 3-drawer dressers or 4-drawer dressers to suit the number of items you need to store. For those with a big wardrobe collection, the clothes dressers should be wider to comfortably fit the collection. A good option for this would be a 6-drawer dresser with more drawers and storage space. However, do keep in mind that 6-drawer dressers can be wider, and would require more space.

While dressers can be placed anywhere in the home for extra storage space, most prefer to keep it in their bedrooms or living rooms for easy access and as decorative or statement furniture. Bedroom dressers are usually 3 drawer dressers to minimise space used in the room but have drawers big enough for your bedroom needs. Given their ample drawer space, dressers can also be used as extra storage for clothes.

Wood dressers

While dressers may come in various materials, Castlery specialises in wood dressers, particularly in mid-century modern designs. Being one of the more durable materials, wood dressers are made to last for many years and are also versatile in design.

These mid-century modern dressers are suitable for all homes and room styles with its easy complementary wood textures and designs, but fitting interior decor with similar wooden design styles best. There are many ways to style your dresser easily; include a mirror on the dresser to create the illusion of more space, or simply adorn it with plants or a designer lamp.

For added stability, consider anchoring the dresser to your walls. Especially if the drawers are filled with heavier items such as books, or if you have children or pets that may attempt to climb the dresser, anchored dressers would be safer as they would not trip and fall.

Aesthetics and Practicality

Dressers or chest of drawers are not only practical storage solutions (particularly for small bedrooms, they can also enhance the look of your home either by matching other furniture pieces to create a cohesive look or styling the dresser to accent the room.
