Dressers and wardrobes are storage solutions usually found in bedrooms, though they can also be used for living rooms. They are both used for storing clothing, but the most significant difference between them is their ability to hang clothing instead of folding it. A wardrobe will have a combination of drawers as well as long empty spots to hang clothing. Dressers are typically taller and narrower than wardrobes and occupy more horizontal space. Furthermore, the top of dressers offers a considerable space for keeping things like books, which is not there in the case of a wardrobe.
