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.
Armoires are an increasingly popular choice; in the baby years, the top cupboard is outfitted with a pole to hang small dresses or jackets, while the lower drawers store the rest of the clothes and blankets. Some parents start out with shelves in the top portion, leave the doors open, and use it as a display area for the baby's treasures. Later, the cupboard can store collections, books, or even a television.
For a nice classy chest of drawers for adults with relatively classic tastes, go with a bold, varnished wood like cherry. Certain sets may be stacked shoulder-high with only drawers, whereas others may have several drawers coming up to waist-height or less, and a wardrobe placed on top (either all in one piece or removable, it's up to you). For a classy touch, get one with an elaborate, curvy top piece; most come with flat tops, but if it's so high up that you won't be resting anything on it, why not go for the aesthetic bonus of fine carpentry.
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.
If you are thinking of adding a dresser to your child's bedroom, consider the size of the room and the space available to put the dresser. You may want to get a loft bed for your child. This will allow you to put some furniture underneath the bed, possibly clearing the way for a nice dresser.
