How To Style A Dresser

How To Style A Dresser

Dressers were primarily used only in bedrooms as a piece of furniture to hold clothing.  Now dressers can be used in any area of the home.

A perfectly placed dresser in a hallway can be used for storing books and holding a table lamp.  Or using a dresser as a small buffet to store plates and silverware.

So, how does one style the top of the dresser appropriately?  The answer is balance and task.  Making sure you balance the pieces on the dresser so one side is not overpowered by the other.  Another purpose is using a medium size plant or vase on one end while the other end holds a smaller stack of books or candles.  Proportions matter so stand back and take a look from all angles.
