10 Beautiful Bedroom Dressers Under $500

Store your stuff and save your money, too.

If you don’t have a ton of closet space in your bedroom, a good dresser can save the day. I actually have a dresser in my closet for additional storage.

Unfortunately, dressers can be quite pricey. Luckily, we found 10 gorgeous dressers that will work in almost any bedroom, and every single one is less than $500 bucks.

If you have a space that's more of a modern, rustic vibe, this wooden dresser might be the perfect addition. It has the look of reclaimed wood with simple hardware on each drawer. If you wanted to update the look, you could easily switch out the pulls for different hardware.

$187, walmart.com

2: White + Walnut Dresser

This pretty white and walnut dresser has a Scandanavian feel. It’s a great choice for a modern bedroom or if you want to match with a bolder color palette to provide balance in your space.

3: Six-Drawer Double Dresser

With a ring pattern on each drawer, this dresser fits right in with Art Deco style. The design is paired with a wooden body, giving it a modern feel. Since it’s only 36 inches wide, this piece would also work great in a smaller bedroom.

$283, wayfair.com

4: Industrial Storage Dresser

This industrial-style dresser has a unique look. The piece appears vintage, like an old locker storage chest. With 15 drawers, you’ll have a lot of extra storage space to play with.

With five drawers, this piece is a great choice if you’re looking for something that's narrow but has a bit more height. It features subtle gold detail on each drawers modern-style legs.

This dresser has a bit of a vintage vibe to it. The wood color works with most palettes, and the variation of the top two drawers adds visual interest. With six side-by-side drawers, this would be a great choice for a couple: one person could take one side and one person could take the other.

8: Lacquered Blue Chest

This tiny dresser would be perfect for a tiny bedroom. It comes in a gorgeous, deep blue hue and would work well with a neutral palette. You could easily add a bit of extra bling by putting some metallic pulls on the drawers.

The sleek shape and beautiful color really makes this dresser a showstopper. Since the dresser is on the wider side, you would need some free wall space in your bedroom, but this one is so pretty it might even be worth moving some things around.

10: Three-Drawer Chest

In a tiny bedroom, you’ll want to look for a narrow dresser like this one. The gold legs and hardware pair beautifully with the gray wood. If you’re super short on space, consider putting your dresser next to your bed, instead of using a traditional nightstand.
