Similarly to armoires, dressers and chests of drawers are pieces meant to expand wardrobe storage. They neatly stow clothing items that are better kept folded, prior to use. Dressers and chests of drawers alike, create a nice tabletop that can be used as a vanity when paired with mirrors, or to keep smaller dressing accessories like jewelry or beauty products at your fingertips.
What is the difference between a dresser and a chest of drawers? Let's explore this:
- A chest of drawers is a unit that stands tall and narrow, typically consisting of a single column of 3 to 6 drawers. They offer a smaller footprint than a typical dresser and can sometimes double as a nightstand depending on height.
- A dresser is a shorter, wider option for wardrobe storage and usually offers two columns of 2 or 3 drawers. A dresser sometimes referred to as a "dressing table" has a larger tabletop area and more capacity for storage. Many of our dressers are paired with mirrors that help them double as vanities and will also add dimension for a more open room feel.
Use one or the other on their own or pair together for a nice his and hers set. Dresser and chests of drawers are essential pieces when it comes to wardrobe storage.
