Are you guilty of stacking clothes or stacks of clothes on the closest surface? Or maybe you're just drowning in too much stuff, with no convenient place to put it? There is no doubt that ample storage space is the key to creating a harmonious and peaceful bedroom space, which means that a dresser is one of the most versatile and practical pieces of furniture in your home.

In addition, the dresser Proper fitting can also add a sense of elegance, style and sophistication to your room, making it not only a functional piece of furniture, but also a statement piece that can truly bring a room together. We've put together a few key things to keep in mind when looking for your perfect dresser.


Drawers come in a variety of sizes and shapes to choose from, and the correct size for everyone depends on what you intend to store in it. If you're not sure, try creating a list of all the things you want to store to help you visualize which size might work best.

As a guide, if you are looking for a place to store all your thick winter wool or bedding, you will need a dresser with deep, wide drawers, such as our chests of drawers "Nordic 1" o "Elsa".  If you have closet space for that purpose and just want a place to store smaller items like socks and underwear, you may just need smaller, lighter drawers. In this case pay your attention to comfortable "Escandi 1 Design".

The height of your dresser is also an important consideration, and not just for practical reasons. It also affects the environment inside the room. Comfortable low-position drawers are good options for children's rooms, but they will look out of place in a more modern setting where the rest of the furnishings are elegant and tall.


Chests of drawers come in various configurations and styles. Here are four common options to explore when looking for the perfect dresser.

EL "TALL BOY" It is one of the most popular dressers, it is a dresser that generally comes with four or more drawers. This means it offers plenty of storage space, but takes up minimal floor space, perfect for those smaller rooms or to maintain a minimalist feel in your space.

THE '2 OVER 3' It's the style consisting of 2 smaller drawers in the top row and 3 larger drawers underneath, giving you ample storage space while offering two compact accessory drawers. This is ideal for keeping underwear separate.

THE '4 OVER 3' is a slightly larger version of the 2 over 3. This allows plenty of storage space with its 3 large bottom drawers, and plenty of space to segregate accessories into its 4 smaller top drawers - an excellent choice for rooms relatives.

THE "3 and 3" It is a low chest of drawers that offers a lot of space in its large and deep drawers, as well as a large surface on the top of the chest. This dresser can be used in combination with a mirror to create a dressing table.

The overall appearance of the dressers can also differ greatly from unit to unit. Maybe you love the vintage or mid-century feel, or you might be looking for something with a light, airy Scandinavian flair to complement the rest of your decor. Take a look at the furniture in your home to find out what will work well. On a similar note, think about whether you want your dresser to have handles or not. If you are buying a dresser for a minimalist setting, without handle it is a popular choice.


Lastly, the materials of which your beautiful chest of drawers is made can have a great impact on the environment and aesthetics not only of your piece, but also of your space in general. Wood is the most common material used in the construction of drawers, it not only works well in contemporary and traditional interiors, but it is also strong and durable.
