Do you have a dresser in your bedroom? We swapped in a leaning floor mirror in our bedroom where our dresser used to be and you have questions about the dresser! Where did it go, where is it now? Short story is, we sold it. In it I kept my pajamas, workout clothes, and underwear and I found myself trailing between the bathroom and bedroom to get dressed. I like having those things in drawers however, so I followed Chris’s lead and put a low dresser we already had in my closet. No longer needing the dresser, we listed it for sale on our local FB Marketplace and somebody snatched it up. Happy to give it a new home! It got me thinking though, how many of you keep a dresser in your bedroom, and if so, what do you keep in it??
Sidenote: I’m still not over this new view.
If you have a dresser in your bedroom is it for grounding a TV or to fill a wall? Do you not have room inside your closet to store all your clothes? If you are storing clothes, do you wish you had it in your closet? So many questions haha because I prefer not to! We did have a dresser in our last bedroom below the TV, which actually stored our bed linens. It served a function (other than holding clothes) plus it grounded the TV and filled a space on the wall.
Honestly, now I’m wondering if maybe I should keep a dresser on the wall across from the window because it does need something. Looking at the photo below, it could be against this wall, but scooted closer to the door. The picture looks narrower than it is but I think it could fit. Still unsure if it’s a good idea or not!
Kids rooms seem to be a completely different topic. I want a dresser in all of my girls rooms because their little clothes do so much better folded! This dresser in Greta’s bedroom I originally ordered for our bedroom! However, when it arrived I knew it belonged among the pink painted walls.
Polly’s dresser was a FB Marketplace find and I think it’s so so darling. Since we got it, Faye has now been asking for a dresser in her room but I’m not sure there’s enough space in there for a dresser!
What do you think, are you pro dresser in the bedroom?
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

In case you missed the announcement in our Love Letter, the wallpaper is officially installed in the laundry room, and I could not be ANY MORE IN LOVE! My ultimate goal for the laundry room was to create a space that is fresh, clean, bright, and a little utilitarian (the straight-laid tile floors definitely bring that). With […]
