This is a less conventional design for dressers. These dressers are big, and are fitted with 1-2 drawers that open up like accordions to reveal a large space that is made especially for shoes. The space is divided into small cubicles that carry one shoe each. Most of these dressers are made with maple as maple wood has deodorizing properties. This is a great way to store, organize and protect your footwear.These types of dressers are great for walk-in closets and big rooms.
As children grow up, they use furniture that will grow with them. Nearly everyone needs a mirror of some sort in their bedrooms, and dressers for kids are very good at supplying that. Most of the better ones will come with mirrors large enough for kids to see themselves in and make sure that they look nice.
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.
Think about how the dresser will function in the future. Some models are part of a set that allows you to add a hutch on top or a corner shelf unit (also called a "radius shelf"') on either side. Your child's storage needs will only grow, so plan accordingly.
Dressers for kids can be painted, antiqued, and decorated with decals and stenciled drawings. These can be used to follow a theme of the room. As your child grows older, the decals can be removed and paint can be changed. These dressers can become a large part of the decorations in a kid's room. If you choose the right style, it can grow with your child and you will not have to replace it for many years, if ever. In fact, you can start with something a bit plain and decorate it as you need to.
