Furniture is expensive, y'all, and if you're going to invest in a new piece for your bedroom, then you wanna make sure it's something that's useful, versatile, and made to last. A few things to consider before you buy that brand new dresser:
Not to state the obvious, but if you're working with limited space, then you need to make sure any dresser you choose will fill that spot *just* right. Nothing's worse than ordering a piece of furniture that's just too damn big for your apartment (or so small that it looks silly), so check out the width, depth, and height to make sure it's a good fit.
Listen: You don't want drawers that suck, and we don't want you to have drawers that suck. In addition to having plenty of depth and storage space, the best dresser drawers tend to include ball-bearing metal drawer slides for easy opening and closing, as well as safety stops that keep the drawer from being pulled out of place.
Other helpful (but not totally necessary) features include a soft-close mechanism, which prevent a drawer from slamming shut on your fingers, and dovetail joints, which give drawers a larger holding capacity.
Storage Dresser The biggest complaint you'll find with most dressers is with the assembly process. Some dressers come fully assembled, but those also tend to come with a steeper price. Some involve minimal assembly, like adding legs or mounting to your wall, while others can take h-o-u-r-s to put together correctly. Be sure to read the reviews and know what you're getting yourself into before buying.
