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.
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.
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.
