We could peruse through dressing room ideas for hours. For what is more satisfying than rows of shoes all lined up perfectly, clothes hung in color order, zero mess, zero clutter, totally dreamy. And actually, while dressing rooms were once reserved for the Cribs-esque homes, they are fast becoming a must-have for homeowners.
‘Dressing rooms and walk-in style fitted wardrobes are fast becoming one of the most desirable spaces within a bedroom.’ says Rachal Hutcheson of Sharps. ‘Not only offering the ultimate in luxury these spaces help to make the most of every inch of space available and can be designed to suit any room size. Because they are bespoke you can fully customize them to complement the way you dress, for instance, if you have lots of long dresses rails will be integral whereas if you love shoes, pull-out or pigeon hole storage can help you see and gain easy access to your favorite pieces.’
Another reason to love dressing rooms? As a space that is usually quite hidden away you can really indulge in the decor, experimenting with colors, prints, and ideas you wouldn’t dare to use in the more frequented rooms in your home. From bold wallpapers, to neon color schemes there’s plenty here to get you inspired, oh and of course, there are some practical closet organization ideas thrown in there too…
1. ASSESS YOUR DRESSING ROOM STORAGE NEEDS
Before we delve into lots of lovely dressing room ideas that are all about color schemes and elegant wallpaper, first let’s focus on the practical side of designing a dressing room. If you are starting totally from scratch you need to assess how you want to store your clothes and what layout is going to work best for you.
Good closet organization will create a dressing room that’s functional and tailored to your lifestyle. Think about whether you like to fold or hang your clothes? Do you want everything on show and easy to access or hidden behind doors? How much rail space will you need v how many drawers? Factor in shoe and bag storage too, plus space for out-of-season clothes like bulky jumpers, coats and jackets.
2. GO BESPOKE FOR THE PERFECT DRESSING ROOM
To make the most of your space, consider going bespoke with fitted storage that’s designed for your specific space. You can they have say over not only how your cabinetry looks from the outside but also the configuration inside, so you can decide on what layout will be best for your needs.
3. INCORPORATE SEATING INTO A DRESSING ROOM
If you have the space in your dressing room, adding in an ottoman, bench, or window seat not only provides a handy space to perch while you put on shoes or stare at your clothes while deciding what to wear, it can also double up as storage. Ottomans are ideal for keeping bulkier, seasonal clothes that you might still want to have easy access to like jackets and jumpers. They also make for great bag or shoe storage too.
4. PLAN HOW TO LIGHT YOUR DRESSING ROOM
Lighting might not be as thrilling as choosing a color scheme or picking the perfect hardware, but it is key to designing a functional dressing room. Dressing rooms do tend to be darker spaces and are often windowless so ensuring they are well lit is crucial.
You will want a strong overhead light but tone down the harshness by incorporating spotlights or LED strip lights within the wardrobes themselves. This makes it easier to instantly see what’s inside but also adds that glamorous, luxurious feel to a walk-in closet.
5. CHOOSE A GRASSCLOTH WALLPAPER FOR A SOPHISTICATED LOOK
A smokey grey scheme is perfect for giving a dressing room a sophisticated edge. Plus, with all that joinery going on it’s nice to have some soft, subtle pattern to break up the walls of storage. A dressing room is the perfect place to experiment, so go as bold as you like, but we love this blue-toned grasscloth wallcovering with a subtle metallic sheen, it adds texture to the monochrome space and bounces more light around the space.
