The main difference between chest of drawers and dresser is that the chest of drawers do not have a mirror attached whereas dressers have mirrors.
Dressers and chests of drawers are two pieces of furniture we usually see in many bedrooms. As mentioned above, the main difference between chest of drawers and dresser is the presence of a mirror. Chests of drawers are only used for storage while dressers are multifunctional since dressers have space for a mirror.
A chest of drawers is a piece of furniture that has an upright frame into which drawers are fitted. These are usually used for storage. A chest of drawers usually come with three, four or six drawers. We can use these drawers to store clothing, lingerie, bed linen, table linen, etc. Chests of drawers come in different designs and shapes. You can choose a one that suits you based on your specific needs – what do you plan to store in it, how much space do you have in the room, etc. In modern houses, chests of drawers can not only be seen in the bedroom, but also in the living room. In the living room, the top of the chest of drawers is usually used to place decorative items such as candles, figurines and plant tops.

Welcome Anywhere. Chests of drawers are perfect in the hallway or foyer, setting the décor tone for the rest of your home and providing a drop spot for keys, etc. Bring one into the dining room and it’s a server, housing dishes or display items. Add one to a bedroom and you have a vanity (add a mirror over it) or an extra clothing dresser. In the living room, you can use a chest as a media stand.
Don’t overlook other fantastic places for a chest. Consider a stairway landing, a bathroom or even a kitchen. A chest would add so much warmth and character to a kitchen – and provide another area for storage and display.
What are My Options? Chests of drawers are available in an amazing variety of styles, sizes, colours and finishes. From industrial to country, from modern to eclectic – whatever you can imagine.
