Dressers & Armoires

Give your children a head start on organization skills by helping them keep their bedrooms neat and tidy. Dressers and armoires are essential furniture pieces for keeping clothing sorted and organized, and you can designate a different drawer for each type of clothing, such as socks, T-shirts, sweaters or leggings. Smaller dressers work well for younger children, whereas larger and extra wide options are good choices for older kids who might have sports uniforms or bulkier clothing items to store away. If your child’s room lacks space, you can also choose an option with shelves and use this extra shelf space to keep toys and accessories in bins or baskets. If the room does not have a built-in closet or closet space is limited, add an armoire for additional storage for items such as pants, coats and dresses.

Although dressers are great pieces of furniture for storing clothing, they are also useful for organizing other items. Use extra drawers to keep arts and crafts supplies, gadgets or toys out of the way. Pottery Barn Kids also offers a large selection of accessories to maximize drawer space. Add canvas storage bins, boxes or wicker baskets to drawers to divide space for smaller items. Add desk accessories such as bookends to sort books, journals or odds and ends. Install hooks and knobs at the sides for hanging scarves, hats and jackets for a one-stop portable closet.
