Size Matters. 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.
Contemporary dressers - These are plain and simple, free from all that ornamentations. Made of light wood, they have accents and knobs made of metal, ceramics and stones. Because of their simplistic design, they give a clean, minimal appearance. Modern dressers - They lay emphasize on form and function rather than decoration. Due to its uncluttered appearance, they give a stylish touch to the bedroom. Quality Matters. 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.
