Best 8 Dressers to Boost Every Style And Space

Dressers. There are so many of them, and we don’t know how to narrow them down. We’ve needed a new dresser or two for the past, oh, five years, and yet, here we are, paralyzed, with options spinning in our heads. We searched Wayfair, Amazon, and Walmart to find the best dressers for every need and are ready to organize our socks.


There are several factors to consider when buying a dresser. Material is an obvious consideration. Would you prefer wood? What about a metallic finish? Cloth? There is no end to the possibilities. The longevity of wood or manufactured wood means a dresser isn’t something you want to replace every year, so it probably pays to invest in a material you like and that matches your home’s interior.

Budgets are also important. We looked at dressers at a variety of price points to fit a wide range of budgets.

Take into account how the drawers are attached as well for ease of use. If you want to avoid playing yank-a-knob every time you grab a new T-shirt, ball-bearing or roller glides are your best bet.

We hate to break it to you, but you’re probably going to have to put together either part of your dresser or the entire dresser. You should scan the assembly section when deciding which to buy so you know what accessories are provided, what tools you’ll need, and if you’ll need more than one adult to do the project.

Finally, a tip-over restraint device or wall anchor is nice to have for larger dressers for safety, especially if you have small children (a light or fabric dresser doesn’t require this), so we scanned descriptions to make sure this was mentioned.


We evaluated dozens of dresser models across a range of price points since we know dressers can range from fairly affordable to jaw-droppingly expensive. (We also assumed that if you have $5,000 to spend on a dresser, you’re probably able to hire an interior designer to do the grunt work or are knee-deep in your own luxury search, so we only considered dressers under $1,200.)

We also consulted professionals from Wayfair, The Novogratz, and elsewhere to find out what their top picks were for the best dressers. We tested for different categories – tall, nightstand, fabric, and drawer sizes – so there would be solid options for different space constraints and preferences.

To make the process as easy as possible, we looked for products with simple, step-by-step instructions and included all parts necessary for assembly. If not otherwise specified, these dressers require assembly upon arrival. Assembly can range from a fairly minimal one-person job to something you might need to outsource on TaskRabbit or that requires a second set of hands.

What about that tip-over restraint device? These have ’em when needed, and they are definitely worth installing to ensure your dresser stays securely in place.

  1. I love this selection of dressers…there truly is something for everyone! The Williams 7 looks very retro to me…something that might have been from the 60s.  The Antique Silver Cain 6 is a very novel piece.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that!  I think I actually like that one best because I can take a look at how my shoes look with the outfit I’m wearing.  I can also imagine that my grandchildren would love to play in front of it!  Thank you for posting!

    1. Hello Cynthia, The Antique silver I loved the look and ordered before Christmas. It’s beautiful in person and my grandkids love looking at themselves in front of it. 

  2. I definitely agree that there are more than a million different options when it comes to dressers. And that’s an understatement I believe. And I think the guide to aspects to consider about a dresser were truly spot on. It’s such a pain wanting to put together a piece of furniture only to realize that you won’t be able to do it alone and you need a second person to help. 

    As for the list, I loved the metallic option. Not sure if my wife will agree with it though. She’s more like the Fabric-Jalyn type of person. We do have some of those at our home already. And so, I think it would only make sense that we keep our dresser approach as far as the style goes consistent.

    I appreciate all the variety and suggestions. Cheers. 🙂

    1. Matiss I appreciate you taking the time to read my review & leaving a comment. When I was picking out dressers to use in each bedroom of my home I had to sort through so many to find one to fit each style was looking for. After purchasing I decided to write the reviews about my experience and test them out. 

  3. I adore your dresser style, which is very fashionable. I really like the silver one because it looks like it will go with everything. Not only that, but I’ve never seen anything like it before. With that said, which is your favorite of the bunch? All of the dressers are one-of-a-kind in some way. They all have their own distinct style that can be incorporated into the space they are in. The teal fabric 5 tear one, on the other hand, is something I would use in my little girl’s room because it is so girly and fun. Thank you for this wonderful review.

    1. My favorite is the Haley Dresser, as it fits into my unique style in my guestroom for visitors. I live close to the beach, so therefore my guest bedroom is styled in a beachy coastal theme. 

  4. I liked your analysis on each of the dressers. You were straight to the point. I visited Wayfair to look at other styles and colors and have to say that the ones you selected resonated with me. I am pleased to see that companies are starting to understand the importance of wall anchors. If you have little ones around, they have no fear and will climb on top of anything. I say that from first-hand knowledge. You have a good range of styles and prices to choose from, it should be interesting for my wife and I to make a decision.


    1. Hello Jerry, 

      Yes, little ones are curious and love to climb up on things. I experienced this with my daughter who climbed up on the dresser to try to turn the TV channel and the TV feel lucky enough the drawer caught the TV. It helps to anchor now to prevent accidents as we experienced with our kids. 

  5. I like the Haley 6-drawer dresser.  It looks nice and would go great with my bedroom furniture I already have.  Has a bit of a beachy vibe which is what I am looking for since I live on the beach 🙂  I also like the Blodgett 4 drawer dresser.  It has a similar look to it and its only $349 on Wayfair which makes it a great buy.  Great selection!  

    1. The Haley Dresser is beautiful and agrees it does give your room a beachy vibe. Wayfair is a great place to buy your furniture, I love that can buy new furniture and pay in payments with the payment options. 

  6. Nice options to choose from. I never like the vintage looking ones. I am more of a modern style type of guy and I also like to have many drawers in order to be able to keep my clothes separately and easier to find. I also like when they are heavy and from thick wood as I had a couple of cheap ones in the past that didn’t last for long.

    1. Stratos when I test dressers I get to match different styles in my home, as each bedroom is styled with a different theme. Dressers usually are equipped with 4 to 6 dresser drawers, not unless you spend a great deal of money for a fancier one that includes small drawers. Some of the vintage style furniture I don’t like, as it mostly falls back on poor design and quality.  

  7. Hi Jannette,

    Your list has a wide variety of styles which I really appreciate! The Antique Silver Cain 6-Drawer is so unique and will make a bold statement for the owner’s space. I’ve never seen anything like that before, so thank you for bringing that up here! For me, I would go with the Hayley 6-Drawer. It matches the vibe of my space! Will definitely check it out!



    1. The Antique style silver dresser is a popular choice by many and is very elegant looking. This is a great choice, and I have this one displayed in the guest bedroom. 

  8. We just moved and we are looking for a dresser, but they are super expensive. Good I came across your post, and I see some that aren’t so expensive at all – I will check it out (but honestly the Owen-4 got my attention). Thanks a lot for sharing this!

  9. Hi Jannette! I really appreciate how clear your website is, thank you for writing this guide! I am currently redoing my bedroom, so this information found me at the perfect time. The Hayley dresser you recommend seems like it would be a really good fit for the decor I’m going for, so I’m going to keep that in mind!

    1. Erica, I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment & am happy to hear that my guide helped you pick out a Dresser for the bedroom you are redoing.
