Dresser Decor Tips

Styling your dresser with chic décor is one of the easiest ways to incorporate your unique personality into your bedroom; here’s exactly how to do it – without creating a cluttered feel.

1. Embrace Clean Elegance.

As with all elements of interior design, when styling your dresser, it is better to err on the side of minimalism. Try to resist the urge to display on your dresser surface every trinket, knick-knack or souvenir you can find – no matter how pretty it may be! Choosing, instead, just two or three of your favorite bedroom accents will create an easy center of focus – and clean, refreshed style.
For a calm, relaxing aesthetic, restrict decorative elements to two or three shades of one neutral color.

2. Show Off Your Eclectic Treasures.

Keeping your dresser surface tidy and simple does not have to mean ‘boring.’ Add unique style to your bedroom by incorporating onto your dresser unexpected designs, textures and colors.

3. Add a Stand-Out Backdrop.

The pieces you choose to put on your dresser will mean nothing if they are easy to miss because of a dull or harsh wall; look for attention-grabbing paintings to balance out your dresser with added height and create a crisp backdrop for your décor.
