Ladies dressers for bedroom were normally made of cherry or walnut and often featured only single drawers. The defining feature of a ladies dresser is the larger bottom drawer which was specifically designed for her to store linens and fine clothes for the day she became wed. Most dressers contain four drawers but they can have as many as eight or even twelve. Among the most famous cabinet makers of quality English dressers was Thomas Chippendale, whose fine cabinets are still much sought after.
Another thing that is important to take into consideration when choosing the right dresser for your bedroom is color. What color would you like your dresser to be? While many dressers are made of wood and therefore come in different wood stains like cherry, oak, or mahogany, there are also dressers made of different materials that are available in every color of the rainbow. The important thing to remember with color selection is that you want your dresser to blend in with everything else in your bedroom. You want the dresser to look as though it is a part of a bedroom collection even if it is not. Choose a neutral color that`s not distracting from your overall décor.
It is important that you get a bedroom dresser that will match the rest of your bedroom decor. Purchasing your furniture in a set will ensure that you have matching colors for the bed frame, night stands, dresser, and armoire. If you choose to make your own or buy each piece separately, be sure to get the same shades of wood. For example, you would not want to purchase a cherry dresser to go with an oak bed. Likewise, you want to make sure that each are made with a similar design and materials.
The size of the bedroom dresser will also impact the item you construct. Think about the location where you will be placing the furniture. Measure the area if possible. Knowing how much room you have for the dresser will allow you to determine the best measurements for the woodworking project. Height, width and depth should all be decided when planning to build your bedroom dresser.
