Can I Convert My Spare Room into a Dressing Room?
And if so, how?
The spare room can often be the smallest room in the house. Just about squeezing in a single bed, a small wardrobe and a chest of drawers means that the floor space is the size of a postage stamp.
No one wants a bedroom so cramped but there is another way you can use the spare room – a dressing room. It makes perfect sense the utilise the space in a spare room which is far more useful and practical for you.
To have a stylish and functional dressing room, just follow this simple step-by-step guide…
Step 1 – Empty and decorate
A dressing room needs to be light and airy, but also easy to keep clean. We suggest that the first thing you do is completely empty the room and take your time decorating the space.
We love the idea of creating a feature or backdrop wall with some delightful wallpaper. Opt for super-feminine wallpaper, or for a man’ dressing room, opt for colours that reflect light rather than absorb it. This way, you can really see the colours and cut of your outfits too.
Step 2 – Upgrade the lighting
As well as natural light, you also want ambient light that affords plenty of light in the room but without being startling or over-bright.
LED lights can be adjusted with an adjustable switch. Opt for a soft, warm white light rather than stark white. Consider lighting around any mirrors too.
Step 3 – Fitted, sliding wardrobes
Next you need to turn your attention to clothes and shoe storage. You could, of course, move your current wardrobe into the space but you have an opportunity to create something simply amazing, so why not take a chance?
Wardrobes with sliding doors are the perfect addition to any dressing room because they are created specifically for you. There are a wide range of options that can form the interior of the wardrobe, such as shoe storage or ample shelving and so on. The combination is entirely down to you.
Step 4 – Choose the wardrobe doors
Sliding wardrobes come in a range of door finishes from the minimalist to the traditional. You can opt for colour or frosted glass doors. A great addition to any dressing room is a full length mirror and with mirrored wardrobe doors, you not only get a useful mirror but also more light bounced about the room.
Step 5 - Accessorise the room
Now that you have the bespoke wardrobe in place, you can finish off the rest of the room. Keep flooring light and simple, add a dressing room chair – typically, a low upholstered seat – or why not opt for a chaise lounge for a touch of luxury and decadence?
Now you have the perfect dressing room – practical and stylish. Need help designing yours?
