It is okay to incorporate two-bedroom dressers in different colors since there is no formal rule limiting the shades you can use in a room. I love having diversity in my décor, and using the furniture pieces in different colors helps me achieve this aim. Below are some ways I like to use the two dressers in different hues in a bedroom:
Adding Wooden Hues
Rose Tarlow once stated that furniture must have a personality as well as be beautiful. Dressers in two shades help realize this statement, such as this room with a white dresser by the bed and the larger one by the wall. The bigger dresser comes in a warm undertone featuring red undertones.
I love this wooden look because it can go with almost any room décor and color. Here, it complements the mirror’s thin brown frame, the photo frames, and the brown flower basket. It also matches the brown carpet and grey bed headboard to break the white monotony in the room.
The white dresser is smaller and blends with the room and bed covers. It also matches the wall, making the space appear bigger by almost disappearing into the background. The shade also means the accessory placed in the dresser creates a floating illusion to add a unique touch to your bedroom.
Even though the two dressers are close together, their placement by the window and the bright palette in the room eliminate a bulky feel.
I prefer using a wooden dresser since the shade complements multiple colors, whether in warm or cool tones. Wood typically comes in warm, cool, or neutral styles. The warm wood features yellow, red, or orange undertones, while the cool ones incorporate grey.
These palettes ensure you can adjust your color scheme and get a dresser in a complementary shade. For instance, you can have your second dresser lighter if the wooden one is in warm colors.
Likewise, you can get a dark dresser when your first one has cool undertones in its wood. However, I like to leave it open since the cool shades are primarily grey, complementing more colors. Therefore, I advise choosing any palette that complements the cool undertones, such as a white dresser when the wooden one is in light or dark grey.
For instance, our example shows a large dresser with a grey finish. I would pick the second one in a warm shade with yellow undertones to match the bed frame and create an attractive balance. These colors blend with the rest of the cool themes in the room, such as the grey walls, white window frames, and cream flooring.
I especially like the neutral wooden dressers since they leave room to complement more shades and décor themes. It is my go-to option whenever I cannot find a perfect palette or am too tired to go color hunting. Another advantage is that the neutral shade complements different floor types, including wooden and tiled styles.
Besides the shades, I would consider the size of the second dresser. Looking at our room above, I advise getting a smaller dresser since the present is sizeable and stands out. A second but smaller dresser helps style the room and offers additional storage space without making the room bulky.
You can place two similarly sized dressers in a larger room, but generally, I like to use different sizes to avoid making the bedroom appear smaller.
Mix and Match
Another way I like to use bedroom dressers in two colors is to match them to the primary color scheme. For example, our room features a dark grey and white scheme, with one dresser in the same dark grey. Getting the second dresser in white will complete the look and not make the furniture appear out of place.
The general mix-and-match style in two tones ensures another white dresser will not feel matchy-matchy.
This mixing style can work with any two or three-colored scheme, where you can pick the dressers in any of the two shades available. For example, I would pick a white dresser and a pink dresser for a room with a white and pink scheme. It is one of the easiest means of incorporating different colors into your room since you do not have to consider various aspects.
Tips to make the two colors work
Choose one dresser that matches the primary color of the bedroom and pick the second dresser in a contrasting shade. For instance, let’s say your bedroom features a white bed, doors, window frames, and ceiling with cream walls. I would have one dresser in plain white to complement my room and the other in a neutral wooden finish.
The wooden color would provide a darker hue to create contrast while seamlessly matching the other furniture and themes.
My other tip for making the two-colored dressers work in your bedroom is to place them strategically and at angles. I would not advise you to place your dressers on either side of your bed in different colors since it would not deliver an excellent balance with the bed. Depending on your space architecture, you want to place a dresser by your bed and another by the wall.
Another way I promote using two dressers in varying shades is to pick them in different sizes. As stated earlier, it is better to have them in different dimensions since I do not place them side by side or either side of the bed. As a result, the dissimilar sizes add an interesting look and effect that makes the room comfortable visually.
It is perfectly fine to have two bedroom dressers in different colors. You require getting colors that complement each other by their difference or similarity. It is also vital to ensure they blend with the overall look in your bedroom to create an interesting yet smooth visual balance.
