At first glance, a dresser looks to be a pretty simple piece of furniture. The more familiar you become, however, the more you realize the complexities of choosing a dresser for your home. The most important thing to consider when choosing a dresser is size. It needs to fit where you want it to fit with the drawers open and a person standing in front of them. Depth-wise, you should have room for the dresser plus a minimum of a couple feet — and that’s pretty tight. Also, height is a factor if you plan to put it in front of a window. There are other important factors, as well. Does the color work with the rest of the room? Are you looking for a dresser with graduated drawers, or do you prefer the drawers to be the same size? Are you looking for basic hardware or do you prefer a custom look? Other differences have more to do with craftsmanship, and there’s a direct correlation between quality and price.
