Finding practical storage solutions in a small bedroom can be tricky. Some spaces have limited closet space—some don't even have a closet! Some can make room for long and narrow dressers, others are best suited to tall and narrow ones. In some cases, the best scenario is to flank the bed with small dressers instead of nighstands to create that extra storage space needed to keep clutter at bay.

The first step to shopping for the small dresser that will fit all your needs is to measure the space that you'd like to fill. Once you know the maximum width of the dresser you're looking for, think about the height you'd want—if the piece is going beside a bed, it should be within six inches of the height of your bed. If you want to use it as a vanity and hang a mirror above it, consider an average height of 32 inches. If you just want as much storage as possible in a narrow space, consider a tallboy dresser.

 

Lastly, think about the budget you have and the style you'd like, and get shopping. To help you find the small dresser that's just right for you, we handpicked 15 of our favorites. Time to play Goldilocks for dressers.
