This piece of furniture is a cross between a bed end chest and a dresser. These dressers are the smallest yet, as they only reach a height of a foot and a half. They are specifically placed at the foot of the bed. They resemble bed end chests only that instead of a big opening on top, you find drawers. These kinds of dressers are perfect for kids' rooms and play areas. You can use them to store small pieces of clothes like underwear, socks or towels, and also store small toys, books and coloring materials.
Various sets of dressers are available in the markets that are not just stylish but also very functional, and it proves effective to keep the things at a place without getting lost. Certain designs are very simple and elegant with very little carving. There is simply no restriction for the placement of your dresser.
While not all kids bedrooms include dressers for kids, that is something that is changing more every day. Typically, when babies are expected and then newly born, dressers are not really needed in their rooms. Their parents generally add a chest of drawers along with a crib, rocking chair, and changing table.
Safety considerations include the obvious-is it sturdy and free of sharp edges? And the not so obvious-are the drawer knobs or handles easy for small hands to get a grip on? Gliders or center guides will make drawers slide in and out more smoothly, making it easier for preschoolers to dress themselves and put away their clothes. Drawers that are heavy and quick to shut, however, are a recipe for pinched fingers. If your toddler is a climber, put safety locks on the drawers, or they may be used as steps (another reason to anchor the dresser to the wall). Finally, ensure that the drawers can't be removed altogether, or a toddler may end up pulling one out on top of him.
A low, double-wide bureau is a wise choice, as all the drawers are easy-access by age three (with the aid of a small step stool), when most kids start wanting to dress themselves. A highboy makes sense only if you are short on floor space and want to store things out of your child's reach; make sure any tall dresser is securely anchored to the wall.
