Turning the Box Room to a Dressing Room
Will it add value? That is usually the first question, probably because homeowners are taught that to ‘remove’ a bedroom is to remove value from a property.
But there is another school of thought. If you have a box room, a room that is simply too small for it to practically called a bedroom, would turning it into a space that is usable, versatile and practical be a bad thing?
We think not! And we think that turning a box room into a dressing room is ideal. And that fitted furniture is the best way of getting the most from the space.
Proximity to the Master Bedroom
The closer the box room/dressing room is to the master bedroom, the better. But keep your robe handy for dashes to and from the dressing room but we guarantee, once you have created this space, you will wonder how you ever managed without it.
Creating the Perfect Dressing Room Space
In many respects, when it comes to a dressing room, a box room has ample space for you to use. So much so, that it can be difficult to determine the right kind of design for the space.
- When looking at design solutions, including drawer, hanging and shelf space, consider which of these solutions will best keep your clothes, shoes and accessories in order.
- You will also need to decide how much of each storage solution you will need. For example, if you enjoy collecting designer shoes, it pays to have the best shoe racking…
- With rail consider having them fitted at various heights – this is great for hanging a few full-length items and then having a half hanging space for other things.
- Consider a secure unit or small safe for jewellery. This is a great way to keep those extra special things and financially valuable items secure.
- The recommended minimum walkway width is 1 metre – this way, you will be able to access drawers without blocking off the walkway etc.
- ‘His and Her’ areas or sides in the dressing room work really well as this stops certain areas being congested at busy times, such as the morning rush to get ready for work.
- Don’t forget lighting as this is important in any dressing space. Consider different lighting solutions too – sometimes, you need a fairly bright light to be able to see the finer details of an outfit etc. and sometimes calmer, warmer lighting to appreciate colours.
Why opt for Fitted Furniture?
Fitted furniture in a dressing room implies that it is meant to be seen and used as a dressing space. Non-fitted furniture means you are just using the space on an ad hoc basis.
Well-designed and installed, fitted furniture can turn the box room into a functional, but stylish dressing room. Take a look at your box room – what can it offer?
