But before heading off to pick out a dresser for sale to help organize your space, here is what you need to consider:

Size

Dressers come in different sizes and designs. Some are tall, others short, some narrow, and others wide. Depending on the available space, get a dresser that fits your space without looking out of proportion. Also, consider the drawer designs. Get a dresser with deep drawers if you need to store bulky items like duvets and blankets. Otherwise, shallow drawers will just be okay if storing clothes or accessories. 

Material construction

Oak, pine, ash, and birch are the best types of wood used for making dressers. This is because they are tough and durable. However, in terms of weight, they are heavier than dressers made of aluminum, polypropylene plastic, or particleboard. While the latter is not as durable, they offer more storage space.

The number of drawers

3 drawer chests, 4 drawer chests, 5 drawer chests, or 6 drawer chests, side by side or in a vertical design, the choice you make depends on what you intend to store. Other dressers come with smaller lockable drawers at the top in case you have valuables or items that need to be locked away.

Safety features

Generally, dressers should be placed against the wall. Some manufacturers include an anti-tipping kit, while others design their dressers with curved kickboards. Drawer guides should also be fitted with safety stoppers to keep them from falling out. 

Plus features

Other accessories that would make a difference include mirrors. Still, weigh your options so that you are not drawn to a dresser with a mirror for sale and then overlook other important features.
