Top Tips for Creating the Perfect Dressing Room

Top Tips for Creating the Perfect Dressing Room

Have you just converted a room in your house, or maybe even some attic space, into a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room? If you have the space, you need to make sure that you are managing it just right so you have a room that is functional but a delight to be in. Here are some of the considerations you have to make.


You need to make sure that you have a good environment within the room – especially if you have designer furniture or antique pieces that you wish to take care of. You need to consider the position of the room within the house and the environmental effects that the space might therefore face.

For example, if you have south-facing windows then you are going to have the sun shining in the room for several hours each day. Where does this sunlight fall? If it is where your storage is likely to be, you should invest in some good cupboards or drawer fronts to protect whatever will be inside. You don’t want to accidentally lighten your clothes in the sun over time – it will happen! You also need to consider factors like how likely it will be that the roof will leak or if the room is likely to get humid. You have invested in the wardrobe, so invest in the place in which it will rest.

Add Luxury to the Fittings

You have created this space to store your most gorgeous possessions, so you should take the time to make this room beautiful too. The right fittings could make your personal space into a room that you never want to leave.

The perfect silk wallpaper or a slipper chair from Penny Morrison to complement the decor might be the ideal additions to pull the room together. Try to come up with a colour scheme and some materials that you like the texture of. Make sure that they are spread around the room to create the ideal tactile experience. Don’t forget about scent too – so long as it won’t damage your clothes it might be just the thing to tie everything together!

Build for Longevity

When you are putting in your wardrobes and other cabinetry, make sure that you are building for longevity. You need to make sure that you have more space than you actually need so that you can grow into your wardrobe.

Unless you are the sort of person who goes through their clothes every few months, you might find that you run out of space quite quickly. By being smart and putting in a little more than you might need, you could soon have the perfect space to grow into, no matter how avid a shopper you might be!

Creating the perfect dressing room will be a matter of personal taste, but never skimp on luxury, high end fixtures, fittings, furniture and decor. By combining the right luxurious touches will soon create a room that is sure to be the envy of everyone who crosses its threshold. Start making plans now for how you would like your dressing room to look and impress!
