As one of the most versatile pieces of storage-type furniture, white dressers are a great choice for any room. With so many different white dresser shapes and sizes available, you can use white dressers to suit almost any room's style and design – from bedrooms to living rooms to basement rec rooms and beyond. Dressers in general are perfect for storing clothes, linens, and extra blankets, but they're also great for displaying collectibles, jewelry, or knick-knacks. Since white works in pretty much any space, a white dresser is a great simple addition.
For example, if you have an old record collection that you want to show off in your den or music room, white dressers will be the perfect complement to those vinyls! They also work great for holding TVs in the living room alongside media.
There are many different styles of white dressers available:
These dressers often feature minimalist, contemporary designs throughout, with the same principles applying to the legs and pulls.
There’s also a wide variety of shapes and sizes of white dressers that work for different rooms and areas of your home, depending on your needs and personal taste.
Here are common sizes and types of white dressers that you’re likely to find in your search.
|Type of Dressers||Description|
|Horizontal Dresser||Long and low to the ground, these pieces are often used in combination with an attached mirror, but can also stand on their own. They can have as few as four drawers and as many as eight.|
|Vertical Dresser||For those short on space but seeking effective storage options, a vertical dresser offers a smaller footprint and plenty of drawer space.|
|Double Dresser||Also acting as a great dressing table or area for a tabletop mirror, these long and low dressers are designed for couples to share, with each getting a row or column of drawers, making them large versions of horizontal dressers.|
|Lingerie Chest||In this type of dresser, smaller and lighter items of clothing such as lingerie, undergarments, handkerchiefs, bathing suits, and socks are stored. These dressers can be horizontal or vertical in design and typically offer great storage for compact spaces or closets.|
|Bachelor’s Dresser||As the name might suggest, a bachelor's chest is designed for one person short on space. It is essentially a chest of drawers featuring one tall free space on one side to hang suits, jackets, and other clothes in addition to dresser drawers. These are also practical options for kids and teenagers.|
No matter which style you’re after, there’s an option that works for you on this list of white dressers.
