When planning the layout for any bedroom in your house, there’s one key thing to keep in mind: storage! There’s nothing more unsightly than a pile of clothes on the floor or a closet that’s completely overflowing. That’s where dressers and chests come in, and at Macy’s, we have bedroom furniture in designs and sizes to match any space and lifestyle, whether you’re decorating a small rustic guestroom or a spacious contemporary master bedroom.
The first and most important thing to consider when selecting bedroom dressers and chests is the size of your room. A smaller footprint works better with taller, narrower furniture that doesn’t take up as much floor space, yet still helps you maximize your storage capabilities. This kind of chest furniture lends itself nicely to overflow items like underwear and socks or scarves and accessories. If the bedroom you’re decorating is super spacious, your options are endless. You can invest in one large dresser that meshes well with your home decor or two smaller bedroom chests in different sizes that can be spaced out.
Although typically used in bedrooms, dressers and chests work well as living room furniture, too. A short, wide chest can double as a tv stand or entertainment center, plus these designs usually have plenty of drawer space for accessories you’d like to keep stowed away.
Your aesthetic also plays an important part in the selection process. There’s a big difference between dressers that have been designed for a beach house and chests that would work well in a rural farmhouse. Thankfully, at Macy’s, you can do a quick click and easily sort by lifestyle theme to find designs that fit in with your current decor. We have everything from ornate, carved designs that fit a glamorous bedroom motif to simple mid-century modern styles with clean lines and minimal detail.
The type of furniture finish you prefer is also a key consideration. For those who prefer a more organic vibe, you’ll want to look at natural wood dressers as opposed to a bedroom chest that’s been decorated with mirrors and other flashy details. Gray, white, black and wood dressers are extremely versatile and will typically blend in well with any decor and color scheme.
