How many dressers should I buy?


Even though you want to have plenty of space for clothing and accessories, you also want to be able to move around your bedroom. If you have a furniture set in mind, take measurements and map out where each piece will go; you should consider the opening and closing of cabinets and drawers as well. Typically, most bedrooms include a three-drawer dresser and a six- to eight-drawer chest or large armoire, as well as two nightstands with minimal storage.

What style dresser should I buy?


At many furniture stores, bedroom furniture comes in sets, which is a less expensive option that ensures a consistent asian style. If you dislike the matchy-matchy look, you can always buy individual pieces, but try to avoid clashing wood stains or colors. For a contemporary look, try industrial pieces, which mix both metal and wood materials, or go all metal or mirrored. If you like traditional, try an ornate wood dresser or armoire in darker wood stains, or find some unique antique or vintage pieces.

What’s the difference between a chest and an armoire?


In general, a chest is made up only of drawers and can run both horizontal or vertical. An armoire is a tall furniture piece that includes drawers and a cupboard-like space or cabinet for hanging clothing. One might be better than another, depending on your needs. Is your closet too small to hang all your clothes? If so, then you probably need an armoire for the extra clothing rod it provides. Do you fold most of your clothes? Then the ample drawer space a dresser or chest provides is a better option. Your room size might dictate your preferences too. If you lack floor space, a vertical armoire will take advantage of height.
