If you're lucky enough to have a redundant spare room then you might want to consider having a dressing room. In this day and age dressing rooms are not just for the rich and famous. Indeed, if you have a spare bedroom that isn't serving any purpose then it makes sense to convert it to a dressing room. They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but we beg to differ! A room that's dedicated to grooming can be the ultimate indulgent space. Furthermore, it can help to free up space in your other rooms. What's more with the correct storage you can give Marie Kondo a run for a money. In case you were wondering Marie Kondo is considered the most organised person in the world.
Without a doubt one of the most important things in a dressing room has to be the storage. We love the look of free standing furniture. However, built in furniture is the best solution here. This is because it maximises the available space and helps to create a streamlined look. Furthermore, fitted wardrobes are adaptable to suit your needs perfectly. For example you might require internal shelving, drawers or shoe racks. When it comes to fitted wardrobes the only limit is your imagination. The key is to make sure that everything has a designated place so that you can find it with ease.
No dressing room would be complete without a dressing table. When picking a dressing table pick one that will make you feel like a million dollars when you're getting ready. Mirrored dressing tables are particularly popular . Indeed this style of dressing table exudes glamour, which is exactly what you should be looking for. The added advantage of mirrored furniture is it reflects light, helping to create a more inviting space. A dressing table is also a great place for storing you jewelry, make up and hair accessories.
Whether you want a stool or a chair to accompany your dressing table is entirely down to taste. However, if space is at a premium then a stool may work best as it can be tucked neatly under your dressing table. Last but most importantly you should always hang a mirror above your dressing table. We would argue that it is better to go for something larger so you're not squinting whilst trying to do your eyeliner!
If space permits then you may want to consider investing in a bedroom chair. A bedroom chair is a great way to create a relaxed feeling to your dressing room. Furthermore, it is a great way to inject some personality in to a otherwise functional room. What's more a bedroom chair means that you can make this room in to a social space as it allows for more than one person to occupy the space.
