A storage dresser is a must-have item in any bedroom, a convenient place to store all kinds of clothing – everything from sweaters and socks to T-shirts and blue jeans. A dresser is important because most often people use the bedroom as a place to dress or change clothes as well as sleep, so having adequate clothing storage there is essential. Another name for a dresser is storage chest, and a modern storage chest can also describe a storage bench, which may have a lid that opens to allow the storing of things like blankets or have cubbies under the seat for use in an entryway or in a bedroom. A modern style dresser is often made of wood and can come in several sizes: tall and narrow, for instance, or short and wide. Oak and walnut are popular wood species for use in the contemporary dresser. Design Within Reach offers a wide variety of dressers and other modern storage furniture that can find uses in the bedroom and beyond.
Home storage dressers and chests for every room
A wooden storage chest is most commonly thought of as a dresser, and indeed the dresser can be used in many places besides just a bedroom, where it is most often found. A low dresser can, for instance, serve well in a walk-in closet, where it’s low enough to fit under clothing hanging on a rod above it. A low dresser can also serve as a living room storage chest with drawers, a place to store games, playing cards, or drink coasters, the trappings of entertaining that can create clutter if not hidden away. Likewise in a dining room, drawers make handy places for table linens, serviceware, or candles. A bathroom storage chest may take a much smaller form and be made of materials resistant to the moisture present there. DWR offers a wide range of modern bedroom dressers that can be useful throughout the house.
