Dressing rooms have always been a symbol of luxury, but the days when a dressing room belonged exclusively to a mansion are over. We have some of the most functional and beautiful dressing room ideas to help you create a flawless and organized dressing room.
If your clothes and accessories are works of art for you, it’s time to display them properly. With good design choices, you can have (and enjoy) the wardrobe of your dreams. The first thing to decide when considering dressing room ideas is how to make the most functional space possible.
Start with these three practical steps:
1. Choose a form of Dressing
The ” L ” – shaped cabinets occupy two of the walls of the room, giving you room to move. A ” U ” covers three walls for maximum storage. The design of the right cabinet makes its sides and its own and works well in small spaces. Depending on the size of the closet, all three shapes benefit from an ottoman or a seating area to put on shoes or get dressed.
2. Add Good Storage
Most of us have a lot of accessories, not to mention a wardrobe with seasonal items that need to be stored most of the year. Having dedicated storage space for all clothing and accessories makes it easier and less stressful to find items when you need them. Adding lots of drawers to your closet design is the best way to keep items organized and dust-free.
The right organization Plan consisting of shelves, hangers, drawers and cabinets keep a neat and tidy closet.
3. When considering dressing room ideas, choosing a style is key
Check out the wardrobe ideas and decide on a style for your wardrobe. Contemporary style is best for a clean and uncluttered space to display your clothes beautifully. Keep a defined style in mind to maintain and stick to a consistent dressing room!
Once you have your dressing room bones in order, get inspired and include a few choices from our nine must-have dressing room ideas:
The White Color
No other color in the palette makes a better background in your dressing room to make your clothes shine. The White is contrasting, bright in what is normally a dark room and always looks fresh and New.
A Dressing Island
If you have the luxury of space, a bathroom item is a perfect place to put all your stuff until you use it again. The islands come in different shapes and sizes. Be sure to choose one with lots of drawers and storage shelves to maximize storage. Add trays or boxes at the top of your island to grab smaller items like jewelry, change, or keys.
Innovative Accessories Displays
Create beautiful and unique storage space by using innovative displays, such as the shoe wall above. Be inspired by the most fashionable fashion boutiques to show your fashion items. Here are some display ideas:
A seating area for dressing
To make your dressing room truly functional and a space you want to enjoy, you need seating. An ottoman is a perfect solution. You can arrange outfits on the Ottoman or sit on it to put on your shoes. For more storage, try storage that opens.
Depending on the shape of your closet, round Ottomans work best in large open cabinets, while narrow sofas work best in straight cabinets with one aisle.
The Vanity Section
One of the recent improvements in the world of dressing room design is the built-in Vanity. No matter how much space is available, you can add one to your dressing room. The main elements of a vanity area include:
- Mirror. If there is no wall space available, a portable mirror will also work
- Special lighting. Use a lamp, light bar or any other lighting that works best in your closet vanity space
- Tray. We recommend drawers to easily store all makeup and care tools when not in use
- A stool or a chair. A stool works very well in a small space because it can be used as a chair or a ladder to reach higher places
You can never have too many mirrors in your dressing room. If you are facing space and Wall challenges, consider upgrading your mirrored closet doors. Multipurpose doors keep items organized while reflecting light and other parts of your closet, making your dressing room look bigger.
Have you ever wondered how to achieve the lightbox effect, like the shoe wall in the image below? Mount a fluorescent fixture on the wall and add a white plexiglass stand to the shelf or cabinet for the lamp. The plexiglass will diffuse the fluorescent light and make the lightbox you see the glow.
Once you’ve invested in a dressing room upgrade, it’s time to showcase your items like a pro. Here are some ways to organize your wardrobe smartly:
- Grouping items such as bags or shoes into a section
- The color coordination of all clothes and accessories
- Creation of thumbnails or combinations of your favorite items for display
- Adding favorite framed personal images or inspirational photos to your displays
- Including favorite art and fashion books on your shelves and counters
- Use of a coordinated set of hangers for clothes
In addition to smartly displaying your articles using the tips above, don’t overdo it. Like the image below, keep the screens minimal and let the open space shine through. The saying “less is more” is the secret of beautiful cabinet displays.
The scale of the library
Make the most of your walk-in closet by installing a cool bookcase ladder. The ladder provides easy access to objects stored at height and adds a funky effect to your closet. The best part is that your ladder can be part of your display, where you can hang the next day’s outfit or a few scarves until you need to use it.
