The 10 Best Dressers
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in July of 2020. Dressers are a popular choice for bedroom furniture due to their practicality. They feature large drawers that are ideal for storing clothes, and have spacious tops, which can serve a variety of purposes, from baby changing stations to TV shelves. As a safety precaution, they should be anchored to the wall to prevent tipping and causing injury, especially to children. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Similar in design to a chest of drawers, a dresser is usually wider and lower in height with multiple, differently sized drawers, as such, they are often chosen for the bedroom due to their versatility. The combination of drawer sizes makes them ideal for clothes, with the smaller, top drawers being ideal for underwear and personal items, and the lower, roomier drawers better for bulky clothing, such as sweaters and jeans. They also have large countertops that can accommodate a mirror or TV, or in some cases can be used as a baby changing station. It should be mentioned that they are heavy items of furniture, and are prone to tipping over, so they should be anchored to the wall, especially if you have young children.
We selected a number of different styles for this ranking, and they are suitable for a variety of purposes. For those with newborn children, the Dream On Me Marcus has an integrated changing station and comes with a changing mat. Similarly, the Storkcraft Moss is available with an additional topper, so that when your child gets a little older it can be removed. For older children and teens, the bright coloring of the Little Seeds Sierra Ridge is a good option for boys, and the feminine styling of the Evolur Aurora is a great choice for girls.
The Songmics Industrial Closet and the Romoon Dresser Tower are both lightweight options with fabric drawers. They are simple to put together and the material accents give them a nice aesthetic, however, they aren't as durable as their all-wood counterparts and have a much lower weight capacity. The Sauder Cottage Road, the Sauder New Grange, and the Ashley Furniture Leahlyn on the other hand, are all robust, well-made pieces of furniture, either built from solid wood or wood composites. The latter of which is constructed from solid birch and is available as a full bedroom set. The Design Mix Furniture Modern Salvaged is a very unique piece of furniture, made from reclaimed timber and iron. However, some might be put off by its high price tag and heavy weight.
