I would never use a dressing room, what’s the point?” But trust us, having a designated space for getting ready can make getting dressed in the morning a breeze. Not to mention, it can be a haven for your clothing and accessories. Here are a few things to consider when designing your dressing room:
Size: How much space do you have to work with? If you have a large walk-in closet, you’re in luck. But if you’re working with a smaller space, don’t worry! You can still create a functional and beautiful dressing room.
Layout: Once you know how much space you have to work with, you can start planning the layout of your dressing room. Where will your clothing racks go? Where will you put your mirror? Will you have enough space for a makeup table?
Lighting: Lighting is key in any dressing room. You’ll want to make sure you have plenty of light so you can see what you’re doing when getting ready. Natural light is always best, but if that’s not an option, choose light fixtures that will give you a bright, clear light.
Tips for Organizing Your Dressing Room
Here are some tips for organizing your dressing room so that it’s both stylish and functional:
Start by decluttering your space. Get rid of any clothing or accessories that you no longer wear, and donate or sell them.
Next, decide how you want to organize your clothing. You can group them by type (e.g. tops, bottoms, dresses), by season, or by color. Whatever system you choose, make sure it makes sense to you and that you’ll be able to stick to it.
Once you’ve got your clothing sorted, it’s time to tackle the rest of the items in your dressing room. Again, less is more here – only keep out the things that you use regularly. Make sure everything has its designated place so that the space stays tidy.
Add some photos or artwork, and use pretty storage boxes or baskets to hold your items. Choose furniture and fixtures that match your style, and make the space a reflection of who you are.
