The beauty of having a dresser in the dining room or kitchen is that it combines concealed storage with both open and closed display units. This allows for the exhibition of attractive dining items such as glassware or a patterned dinner service with a conveniently placed area for storing table linens, cutlery and other necessary equipment. Having everything in one easy to reach facility within the dining area makes laying the perfect table a far simpler task, and when items are not in use they are either put away out of sight or converted into an eye-catching display which adds to the décor of the room outside of meal times. Large dressers can dominate a space if not correctly placed and allied with a dining table and chairs which are in proportion. A tall, sturdy dresser works well with a larger dining table which seats eight or more, while smaller dressers can be used to great effect in the kitchen for storing cookbooks, crockery and more.
