Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about other bedroom furniture like nightstands, headboards, and storage beds, here we’ve rounded up the best-reviewed dressers under $300 on Amazon for storing and organizing your clothes. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)
Best four-drawer dressers
“I’m so pleasantly surprised by the quality of this dresser given the price! I have been purchasing cheaper particle-board dressers for a few years now, and have always become frustrated by how easily they fall apart. I can already tell by the quality of these materials that this is going to be durable. Oh, and it looks really beautiful and like an expensive piece of furniture. I highly recommend this dresser, especially if you want something that looks nice on a budget.”
“Love this dresser. Solid and easy to put together. Small cracks in a couple pieces of wood, but they ended up on the inside, so it wasn’t a problem for me.”
Best six-drawer dresser
“I’m thoroughly happy with this purchase. It took me a while to find a decent drawer for a decent price with good reviews. Finally, I came upon this and took a chance, hoping it would be worth it. Well, it’s worth it!
It’s really durable, you can tell by how much it weighs. Easy to build with simple instructions. The drawers hold a good amount of clothes, and are really solid. All in all, I love the dresser, I love the quality, and I love the price.”
Best fabric dresser
“I am a mechanical aerospace engineer, so I appreciate quality, and the mDesign dresser is perfect. Easy to assemble and high-quality parts and materials. Very nice product in every way. Probably more storage than most lower-end dressers and chests, and fits in smaller rooms perfectly. Easy to move. Opens up possibilities for different room layouts because of the compact design”
Best kids’ dressers
“Stop searching! This is the one you want! I did a whole lot of research and spent a whole lot of time scouring the interwebs before making this purchase. You can thank me because I’ve done the hard part for you. Pick your color and buy it. Really. Yeah, it took me two hours to put together; but the instructions were easy to follow. I mean, you have to build each drawer — it’s time-consuming. The reward, though, is a piece of quality, solid furniture that you didn’t have to spend a fortune on.”
“This dresser is simply amazing. I’m six months pregnant with twins and the assembly was easy enough that I could manage it on my own. The drawers are also nicely deeper than any I’ve seen on modern dressers, even the ones in my local furniture store are going for three times this price. I also love that they thought about children when making this dresser and the drawers have a stop on them, so they don’t fall out. I’m very happy with this purchase! The look, the size, the construction, the ease of assembly, and the gosh darn amazing price make this piece a true bargain!”
“I just finished putting this together and I’m very happy with the quality of the product. It looks beautiful in our little girl’s room, and the wood is a beautiful color. Feels very solid and also provides a security strap to secure it to the wall, which I appreciated, as we have climbers in our family. Would absolutely recommend this dresser for your kids’ room.”
Best dresser with changing table
“My husband put this together and he said it was easy — no problems and all the parts were there. It works perfectly, just like a dresser should! All the drawers open and close very smoothly. Color is as pictured and matches the espresso crib we bought. The finish looks great, no chips or scratches. Looks great in our daughter’s room! Very happy with this purchase, and we would (and already have) recommend this product to a friend.”
