Dressers. Saturday , November 04th , 2017 - 16:42:58 PM
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.Staples, glues and nails which are used as dressers joinery are signs of a weak make and bring down the quality. Check the sturdiness, by checking the drawers, door knobs and inner fittings. Look for any creaking sounds or if the drawers are getting stuck and the doors close to a good fit. Also check whether the wood is kiln dried, to prevent it from peeling and splitting.
The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. The body of the dresser, or the carcass, is held together with dovetail joints that add an element of design as well as making it extremely strong. Other dressers employ frame and panel construction that is highlighted by mortise and tenon joinery that is accented with wooden pins. Combining both techniques for any style of handmade dresser is what makes the carcass durable and the drawers move in and out smoothly.
The color you choose for your dresser is just as important as the style you select. The wrong color dresser can totally throw off the look of your bedroom. For example, a bright red dresser would be the wrong choice for a bedroom with a classic, traditional theme and a neutral colored dresser would look all wrong in a modern, contemporary bedroom. Most dressers are available in wood stains like oak, cherry and mahogany. If you find yourself a little unsure about color a wood stain is probably the safest route to choose as they are the easiest to blend in with just about any style of room. No matter what color you choose make sure its not overpowering the rest of the room. Another important thing to take into consideration when purchasing a dresser is the size dresser you need.
