Regency, Victorian and Edwardian dressers for bedroom are all made of wood with a quality French polish on the front. The back was usually left unvarnished. Often the drawers would have locks. Today, dressers come in a wide variety of materials including the modern favourite MDF - micro density fibreboard - with a woodstain veneer on the top and sides. This hardwearing easy care engineered wood product can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes.
This is a less conventional design for dressers. These dressers are big, and are fitted with 1-2 drawers that open up like accordions to reveal a large space that is made especially for shoes. The space is divided into small cubicles that carry one shoe each. Most of these dressers are made with maple as maple wood has deodorizing properties. This is a great way to store, organize and protect your footwear.These types of dressers are great for walk-in closets and big rooms.
The emphasis for modern dressers is to de-clutter bedrooms and create a harmonious themed design scheme within the bedroom, and often, bedroom units, including the wardrobe, overhead cupboards, dressing table and dresser will be made with one design theme and one colour so that everything is colour co-ordinated. Many newer dressers for bedroom have more storage space than dressers of old.
