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.
Chests of drawers are usually broader in comparison to its height. They are of rectangular shape and sometimes contain legs or stand for support. A drawers' chest is generally made of ply or wood but wrought iron made chests are also available. Drawers can be opened by pulling the handle bar located at the front side. To complement the user's style statement, drawers' chests are also available in various designs with decorative carvings on them.
When deciding on a dresser style, think not only about how much space you have but also about what you will put in it and how a child will use it. It will be used much longer than the crib, so choose with an eye to the future. You may even want to buy this piece at an "adult" furniture store. You can also get an inexpensive dresser at an unfinished furniture store, then paint or stain it to match your crib or other furniture you may already have chosen. Spend a little extra on unique knobs, and you'll have a custom piece for a fraction of the price.
Let the chest of drawers conform to the person using it to get the maximum efficiency out of it. If, say, you have one in a young child's room, then keep it low down to the ground, not a double-stack version. If the kid has a lot of toys, then consider having one that is more chest than drawers, with maybe only a few drawers at the bottom, and plenty of trunk space to stow toys and other things, with a light kind of wood to make it easy for the youngster to open the lid. If it's in the room of a young lady obsessed with her physical appearance, than get one that has a mirror and lighting unit built into it. Also, consider colors, as at certain ages kids (and even adults) may choose one dominant color as a central theme in their room, and in general.
Another type of furniture chest for you to consider is a kid's toy chest. As we all know kids have tons and tons of toys that will undoubtedly end up all over the room if there is no proper place to store them. Sure, you could store them in the closet or in a small container in the corner but neither of these options is very attractive or functional. If you store them in the closet, their closet will become messy and unorganized. If you store them in a container, the container will take away from the overall look of the room. By choosing a beautiful toy chest constructed in a design to match the overall theme of your child's room, you will be able to store away many toys as well as add a beautiful addition to the room.
