There comes a time in every child’s life when they grow out of their teeny tiny baby clothes and start dressing like miniature humans. Of course, kids clothes don’t take up nearly as much space as the pieces hanging in your closet or stuffed in your drawers, but they definitely call for more storage space than a pile of onesies made from barely any material. As soon as they start outgrowing their toddler wardrobe, take it as a sign to swap their changing table with built-in compartments for a big kid dresser.
While some parents opt to purchase a larger dresser from the get-go, others stick to changing tables with drawers because of how little space baby clothes actually take up. If you’re looking to upgrade, the best kids dressers are both large and sturdy enough to last your child through grade school. The trick is to find a piece of furniture that’s timeless and goes well with virtually any decor. You can’t go wrong with any of the following kids dressers below.
