When we started refreshing our bedroom, I knew I wanted to update some of my bedroom furniture. One of the biggest changes I made is that I swapped out our dressers for something really different. Both of our old pieces were a labor of DIY love and we used them in our previous bedroom for years. The old dresser with the curved front I thrifted and updated, and the tall one I bought from a curbside sale (along with two nightstands and another set of drawers that is now in Attley's room) and gave them a makeover.

I really loved our old chest of drawers, but I was ready for something different with a less traditional look! My new piece is actually two identical six-drawer dressers pushed together to make it one long piece. It looks perfect with our TV and gallery wall. and it is exactly what I was envisioning. Modern and white with clean lines and minimal hardware. Having twelve drawers provides so much storage but the design keeps it from feeling heavy and clunky.

When I was searching for the right thing for my own bedroom, I found TONS of inspiration. Needing a bedroom dresser is pretty unavoidable, we all need a place to put our belongings. The good news is there are so many beautiful dresser designs out there to purchase. I pulled together my favorites and made a list with a wide selection of dressers to share with you. Below I highlighted some of my top picks.

The Best Modern Dressers

Biggest Splurge

This stunning dresser from Anthro makes me swoon. With a textured trellis design and brass accent pieces, it is totally worth the heftier price tag! I would consider this more of an investment piece, but It would a total showstopper in any room.

Best Basic Dresser

Looking for clean lines and a rich wood tone with an affordable price tag? This basic solid wood dresser is perfect! There are no knobs or pulls, which gives it a clean flat front. Bonus, it also comes in a darker finish. I love the design–it is really versatile and can be used anywhere in your home. Not to mention at under $400, this is the top of the list for best affordable dressers.

Perfect for Small Spaces

Have a room that needs a small chest of drawers but still want something interesting? This chest is it! It is upholstered all over–it even has fabric drawers–which is perfect for creating a truly soft and calming bedroom. Also for a six-drawer dresser, it doesn't take up a ton of room.

Mid-Century Modern Dresser

This simple dresser isn't huge, but with a walnut finish and awesome cane fronts, it is seriously big on style. Midcentury is one of my favorite styles since I love clean lines and lack of decorative accents. The design speaks for itself and it is one of the best dressers I found!
