When considering a new home, people often factor ‘storage space’ in their list of what’s most important. However, some may overlook places that have limited built-in cupboards because they forget that other furniture items – a dresser table, in particular – can save the day. These are essential pieces for storing things, whether in the bedroom, living room, hallway or more.
So, what’s the difference between a chest of drawers and a dresser table? While both are used for storage and have drawers, the latter is wider and shorter. Typically, they have six large drawers. Ultimately, which of the two you choose should be based on the size of the space you’re furnishing.
In a large bedroom, a dresser table acts as a focal point, and is a convenient station for storing toiletries and accessories needed when getting dressed. If the room’s big enough, you could get a matching chest set to bring cohesiveness to the space.
When it comes to furniture, nothing makes more of a glam statement more than mirrored surfaces. They offer the perfect look for a room that demands attention. Mirrored furniture is not only stylish but is also a great way to make an interior look larger, thanks to reflection. A mirrored dresser table is ideal for a chic bedroom inspired by the glamorous Hollywood heydays. With reflective pieces like this, it`s best to keep other furniture minimal and pale-hued, although black, purple and royal blue also work well with reflective pieces.
To style your table, add a small vase of fresh or dried flowers. Stack up some favourite books or wedge them between two unique bookends. Finally, use a small tray for displaying personalised décor accessories and keepsakes, such as a jewellery box, collection of shells or crystals, and tea lights for ambience at night.
