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.
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.
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.
