How Dressers Can Enhance a Space
How do I pick a chest of drawers?
Depending on where you plan to place your dresser, you may want to choose a specific style that fits the needs for that space. If you need to decorate a space that doesn't have a practical seating option, you can choose a drawer chest that has a set built into it.

If you plan on using the piece to store makeup or accessories, you may want to opt for a piece with an accompanying mirror.

If you want to place a TV or other items on top of your furniture, opt for a wider piece so that you have space above it.
