If you have a metal bed, you're probably wondering what kind of dresser is best for it. The good news is that the answer isn't always as simple as "a wood dresser will look best." As with all furniture, there are many different styles that look great when paired with metal beds. In fact, you might be surprised at just how many options are out there—and how many different rooms they can work in!

Rustic meets romantic

When it comes to rustic furniture, you have quite a few options. Rustic dressers can be made of wood or metal and painted or stained in various colours. They can also come in different styles, such as distressed and hand-painted finishes (like the one pictured above).

To make sure your new piece fits into your bedroom’s overall look and feel, try to match colours or textures throughout the space. For example, if you have any white detailing then this dresser adds a lot of sophistication while accentuating your existing decor.

Shabby chic meets luxurious

You'll find that shabby chic and luxury items are a natural fit. Shabby chic is a style that's very feminine, soft, and romantic. It tends to have lots of lace and ruffles but not much metal in its design. Luxury items, on the other hand, tend to be masculine and hard—think leather seats in cars or hardwood floors in houses. Because they're so different from each other, these two styles can work together beautifully!

Glam meets industrial

Industrial and glam are two different styles. When it comes to furniture, industrial is a little more masculine, while glam can be used in any room of the house. A bedroom with an industrial-style dresser isn’t going to work well as a dining room table or living room coffee table—it just doesn’t make sense. But if you have an industrial-style bed frame and think it would look great with a glam dresser, go for it! You might also try using black-and-white items together in your home instead of just sticking to one colour scheme.

Glam is considered feminine because it has feminine details like slimmer legs, curvy lines, and lighter colours like gold. It also adds an extra level of sophistication to the bedroom, making it an excellent choice if you’re looking to make things feel classier.

Coastal meets eclectic

Eclectic style is a mix of many different styles, from the French country kitchen to the shabby chic living room. The idea is to pull together pieces that wouldn't normally go together but somehow look right when they're put together.

Coastal style can take elements from coastal architecture, such as white columns and shutters, and add them to other eclectic furniture in the same space. You can use metal beds with coastal design accents like rope lights or barn doors for example.

Romantic meets hipster

You can also choose a dresser that has ornate details. Ornate details include floral designs, carved details, and ornate handles. This is a great way to add some romance to your metal bed frame and make it go from modern to classic in one fell swoop.

If you really want to be bold with your metal bed frames, consider using a dresser with ornate legs or feet instead of the standard metal footboards on all four corners of the box spring and mattress set (this is where most people place their pillows). Or if you prefer more subtlety but still want something unique, try selecting a large trunk as your nightstand or side tables instead of standard nightstands made from wood or metal.

Modern can stand alone

Modern can stand alone. If you've got a modern bedroom, then chances are you're going to want a dresser that fits the aesthetic. There's really no need to choose a dresser that's only going to work with one or two pieces in your room, as long as it looks good with everything else. A metal bed can look great paired with an all-metal wardrobe unit or nightstands made of wood and metal. It all depends on how much "metal" there is in your home's decorating scheme and what other items you have around it.

There are different dresser styles that pair well with a metal bed

A metal bed can be paired with a vast array of dressers, due to its minimalistic design. The most important thing to remember is that the bed needs to complement the dresser, not take away from it. A simple wooden chest of drawers looks great alongside a metal frame and vice versa — it just depends on your personal preference!

Here are some examples:

  • If you want something sleek and modern, try an industrial-style dresser made from cement or metal. These are usually simple in shape but come in a variety of sizes and finishes (e.g., black).
  • If you want something more traditional yet modern at the same time, go for wood dressers with matching grain for handles or knobs. This is an excellent example of bringing traditional looks into the modern age.


A metal bed is a great choice for any bedroom. It can be used with many different types of dressers, so you'll have plenty of options when it comes time to choose one.
