Designing a Walk-In Wardrobe

Walk-in wardrobes and dressing rooms are becoming more popular in homes, as people are beginning to favour them over guest bedrooms. Why not create a little space for yourself? The idea of a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room may seem a little indulgent to some, but if you have a lot of clothes and accessories it’s a great way of decluttering so that your bedroom can be used just for sleeping and relaxing. If you don’t even know where to start with designing your dressing room, this blog will teach you the most important things to remember.

Mix and Match Your Storage Types

It’s good to have a mix of both open and closed storage. Closed storage options, like drawers and wardrobes, are great for your clothes as they keeps them neat and dust free. Open storage is a good option for accessories such as shoes and bags. It gives you the ability to see all of your options at once, perfect for those mornings when you’re dashing out of the door. It creates a more aesthetically pleasing effect if you create a symmetrical design, with wardrobes in the middle and open storage either side, or vice versa.

Fit in a Dressing Table

If it’s possible for you to fit in a dressing table then you really should. It’s often thought of as a piece of furniture exclusively for women, however a dressing table is suitable for all genders. It’s a great place to start and end your morning routine, collect your thoughts and do one last appearance check before you head out to start your day.

Make It Your Own

A dressing room is such a personal space – it’s where you prepare yourself for heading out into the world. Bear this in mind when designing your space and make sure it suits your needs. The Sliding Door Wardrobe Company provides made-to-measure wardrobes which can be fitted to any shape of room.

A free design consultation is the perfect time to discuss your requirements and how they can be incorporated into the overall room design. It’s important to make the most of your space in smaller rooms like this, so made-to-measure wardrobes are the perfect answer. Any awkward ceiling shape or recess can be filled with useful storage. Make sure you add your personal touch to the room’s décor and it will be your own private haven.

Walk-in Wardrobe Vs. Dressing Room

Depending on your space, you may not have a full room to dedicate to being your dressing room. If you have a large bedroom or a recess at one end, a walk-in wardrobe is the best option for you. Fitted wardrobes along one or two walls can create a little enclosure that gives the illusion of a separate room.
