Dressers & Chest of Drawers

Colors 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 organized 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. Organize 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. Organize 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 minimize 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.

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.

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.

How do I keep my dresser from tipping over and child-safe?

If there are young children and toddlers in the household, here are a few ways to prevent your dresser from tipping over:

  • Furniture Anchors: Purchase furniture anchors, also called furniture anti-tip devices or restraints, from a safety store or hardware store. Utilize a stud finder to locate wall studs for secure attachment. Anchors screwed into studs provide the strongest hold. Use two anchors per dresser for maximum stability.
  • Drawer Stops and Safety Straps: Install drawer stops or safety straps to prevent drawers from opening all the way. This reduces the risk of your child using open drawers as a climbing platform, which could lead to a tip-over.
  • Avoid Heavy Items on Top: Refrain from placing heavy objects, like TVs, on top of the dresser. This can significantly increase the risk of tipping if your child pulls on the drawers or climbs.
