We're accustomed to seeing dressers in the bedroom, and sometimes even in the living or dining room. Often antique, dressers are an attractive storage piece for non-clothing items, too, like blankets and table linens. So it shouldn't come as a surprise to see them popping up in kitchens! Whether used as an island, extra counter space, or just to store cookware, freestanding dressers can be an interesting visual element in a kitchen, as well as a practical storage solution.
