Smart Storage Solutions

Storage will be vital in this room because you will want to have everything neatly organised and have enough space so that you can comfortably get dressed. Smart storage solutions like fitted wardrobes are a good idea as this allows you to maximise the space while also improving the visual style of the room. You should also have your clothes compartmentalised so that you are able to keep everything neat and organised and so that you can find exactly what you need.

Dressing Table & Mirror

The dressing table will be the focal point of the room so it is important to find the right dresser which will have plenty of space for everything that you need – you will also need a comfortable chair to sit on and a large mirror where you can do your hair and makeup. You may also want another full body mirror in the room so that you can get a complete look at your outfit. When it comes to dressing table placement, you will want to make sure that there are plug sockets nearby so that you can use straighteners etc.

Lighting is important in any room of the home, but particularly here where you will want to clearly be able to see yourself. This means that you need to have good overhead ambient lighting but you may also want task lighting for tasks like putting on your makeup. A vanity mirror with lights is also a good option and can add some glamour to the room.


You will also need to decide what the dressing room will be used for or whether it will solely be a space for getting ready. You might find it a useful area for storing items like towels, laundry and suitcases if space permits but it is important to keep the area clutter-free too.
