So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only, but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision, as investing in oak dressers, or any form of oak furniture, is an investment for a life.An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course, your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times, and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving, but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.There are different types of dressers for you to choose from. The smallest of these dressers are called drawer dressers as you only get to see drawers in these dressers. The largest type of dressers is called door dressers, because of the door found in the center of the dresser. This door is used for covering pull out trays and shelves.
If youd like to get away from flimsy flat pack furniture but still find furniture thats affordable, up-cycled or pre-loved pieces are definitely the way to go. If youre looking for a dresser or sideboard in particular your choice may also be quite limited to older furniture, as while these items are definitely back in fashion they are quite traditional pieces. Many companies now make reproduction French dressers and shabby chic sideboards but they somehow lack the character of original vintage pieces. They are also mass-produced so if youd like something unique in your kitchen that none of your friends or neighbours will have, go for a second-hand or antique piece of furniture.
Remember that oak dressers are usually expensive. If you find a piece that is rather cheap, beware as there are many manufacturers who use cheaper quality wood to manufacture the dresser and then coat it with oak veneer. With the help of these veneers, this cheaper dresser looks very much like an oak dresser.Also choose oak dressers that are well built. They have to be fastened without any gaps, its planes should be level and in addition to all this, the dresser should be devoid of any indentations. By keeping all these points in mind, you will be able to make a wise decision in your oak dresser investment that will last you a lifetime.
Long dressers are characterized by big drawers with a mirror at the back. They are some of the easiest to find bedroom furniture dressers in furniture stores.

They provide a considerable amount of storage capacity without taking up too much bedroom space themselves. These too come in different designs to suit your preference.Wardrobe armoires are tall and wide dressers that consist of two outward opening panel doors and pull out drawers below.
