Regardless of whether or not all your clothes fit in your closet, a dresser—especially an affordable dresser—is a must when it comes to bedroom furniture. Not only do they offer extra storage, but they also provide you with a designated space to display everything from family photos to that antique perfume bottle you swiped on your last trip. Plus, it’s our personal belief that a bedroom—no matter how stylish the duvet cover, area rug, and lighting—hardly looks finished without what we consider a key piece of furniture.

From standard horizontal dressers to several feet-high armoires, there are a lot of different types of pieces on the market—some of which can run in the thousands. If you’re not looking to spend more than a couple of hundred bucks on your new case, there’s no need to settle for a life without a six-drawer double or cabinet combo because there are plenty of cheap dressers out there. We’ve rounded up our top finds—in all different shapes and sizes—and put them all in one place, so consider this your cheat sheet for your search.

That said, we’d advise against simply picking your favorite and clicking “purchase” because there are a few factors to consider first. Perhaps the most important is wall space. If you only have a small sliver available, you may not want to try to squeeze a six-drawer into your bedroom. Secondly, pay attention to style because you’ll likely want your new dresser to blend in with the rest of your bedroom. Go ahead, start shopping and get organized!

What is the average cost of a dresser?

Dressers can cost as little as $100 or as much as $5,000, depending on where you get it. So it’s difficult to determine the average cost, but a good dresser that will last at least a few years typically costs anywhere between $150 and $600.

What is the difference between a dresser and an armoire?

The term “dresser” is actually short for “dressing table,” which are typically longer than they are wide and are topped with a flat surface. Armoires, on the other hand, are usually a bit larger and taller than your average dresser.
