The right dresser is a stylish storage solution. It’s up there with the best space-saving ideas. A dresser should be a natural extension of your wardrobe, storing shoes, accessories, and all those foldable items that can’t be hung. 

There’s a dresser to suit every bedroom, no matter its square footage. But with so many styles and size options, and so many retailers to research, it can be difficult to find the best places to buy bedroom furniture. 

That’s why I’ve done all the hard work for you. I’m a shopping writer, and I’ve spent hours scouring the sites of the top home furniture brands to bring you the very best dressers. 

From tallboys to double dressers, ornate elegance to cutting-edge contemporary design: these top brands have it all. 

Where to buy the best dressers

1. Wayfair

Wayfair’s range of home furniture is unparalleled, and their bedroom furniture collection is no exception. A simple search for ‘dressers and chests’ yields over 16,000 results. Luckily, there are plenty of specialist filters to narrow the selection. You can shop by color, price, and even number of drawers for dressers of every shape and size. Better yet, your dresser will be dispatched within days – the vast majority of Wayfair dressers ship fewer than 72 hours after sale. 

2. West Elm

Although their selection is on the smaller side, every one of West Elm’s deep-drawer dressers provides a whole lot of storage space. They’re timeless, too, painted in neutral colors which will complement most interiors. Style aside, one of West Elm’s biggest selling points is their home delivery and assembly package. For a small extra fee, your dresser can be delivered to your door, carefully carried to the room of your choice, unpacked, and assembled for you. The delivery team will even remove all the packaging and ensure it’s safely recycled. Each of their dressers is made with FSC-certified wood, supporting healthier forests and ecosystems worldwide. 

3. Anthropologie

Unlike lots of contemporary brands, Anthropologie stocks aren’t afraid of a little color. Several of Anthropologie’s dressers are real statement pieces, painted in olive green and sky blue. While their strength is in style, there’s serious storage on offer if you know where to look. However, you really do have to look for it. Where other dresser retailers allow you to shop by number or depth of drawers, there are no such specialist search filters at Anthropologie. Also, you have to assemble the dressers yourself. 

5. Walmart

Walmart is known for its affordable and accessible home furnishing finds, so it’s no surprise that they stock some of the best value dressers on the market. You can search for storage solutions using all the usual filters, but Walmart is the only store I’ve seen that sorts dressers by width. It’s that much easier to find the dresser that suits your space. Walmart dressers have some of the highest drawer counts around – there’s a 16-drawer dresser below which could hold an entire wardrobe. While you’ll have to assemble it yourself, each dresser comes with a detailed written instruction manual and video walkthrough.

6. Apt2B

Beds are their speciality, but Apt2B knows a thing or two about storage solutions. Deep drawers and natural materials characterize these dressers, which have been built to last. While they are on the more expensive side, you can snag yourself a quality dresser for less when you take advantage of Apt2B’s regular clearance sales. They also offer completely free delivery on every order. Consider their hassle-free 100-day return policy, too, and it’s clear that Apt2B are committed to simplifying your shopping search. 

6. Thuma

Thuma specializes in mindfully made furniture to suit bedrooms of all sizes. At first glance, Thuma’s offering seems small. There is only one style of dresser – The Dresser – but it comes in eight different shapes and sizes. The drawers can be stacked to create both vertical and horizontal dressers, so you can create the storage option that suits you. The Dresser comes in soothing shades of walnut, espresso, gray, and natural wood. Each dresser has been handcrafted from 100% upcycled wood, with all its natural variation, to create a piece that’s unique to you. While each low-lift drawer unit comes pre-assembled, you'll have to attach a few screws yourself.

7. CB2

CB2 stocks some of the most affordable dressers on the market, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality for cost. Crate & Barrel’s sister brand is known for its cutting-edge, clean-line designs, and this dresser collection is no exception. Their site has a super helpful related search function, allowing you to quickly navigate from ‘dresser’ to ‘gray dresser’, ‘lacquer dresser’, or even a whole ‘dresser set’. CB2 makes searching for the right dresser easy. They can simplify assembly, too, with an optional setup service: just bear in mind the extra cost.
