Dresser | Chest

Dressers, also known interchangeably as chests or bureaus, are furniture pieces made up of multiple stacked drawers for storing items. Most commonly used for holding various clothing items within the bedroom, dressers are multi-functional household pieces use for both the storage of items and for showcasing other items via the top surface. Dressers are designed and manufactured with various sizes, storage capacities, and proportions that can either be more vertical (tall) or more horizontal (wide).

How big are dressers?

Dressers come in a large range of sizes to meet varied storage demands, but dressers commonly have overall depths between 18”-24” | (46-61 cm), heights between 30”-50” (76-127 cm), and widths between 30”-74” (76-188 cm).

What is the difference between a dresser and a chest?

Though the terms dresser and chest are often used interchangeably, dressers traditionally include an attached top mirror while chests of drawers only include drawers.


What is stored in a dresser?

Dressers are best suited for storing folded casual clothing, off-season wardrobes, and assorted smaller items such as socks and underwear.
