We all have a vision of that perfect place called our dressing room, adorned in colours of white and pink. My perfect dressing room will have lots of hearts and flowers in it and also fairy lights.
Now you must be think, why I am talking about dressing rooms, well that is because currently I am drawing up a mood board while I’m figuring out the wardrobe design for the dressing room I would like to have very soon. Promise to post the pics as soon as it is done 😉 While doing so, a thought came to my mind that even as we’d all like to live in mansions and mod houses and have a few rooms just for our clothing that may not always be the case. Houses are getting smaller every day and wardrobe design is now all about how best to use limited space instead of being extravagant in terms of size.
So, here is a list of 10 tips to help you all get that dream dressing room, possibly in a more compact space.
- Lights – Make sure your wardrobe or drawers have enough light around so that you can see what is hidden in those dark corners.
- Separators – All of us would love to have a dressing room of our room. But what might work best is a folding screen that you can use as a separator in order to create a dressing area. Such wardrobe design would strike on a very old Hollywood note too.
- Trays – Use beautiful trays to neatly organise your accessories, makeup and perfumes on your vanity table or bathroom shelves.
- Dress up your closet – Use bright paint or wallpapers to dress up your closet and give it a cheerful vibe. If your wardrobe is small, use light colors to create a sense of space. In this situation, less is more, so restrict your creativity to maybe just one wall.
- Keep your space clean – An organized wardrobe and dressing space will do wonders for your physical appearance and how you dress up. Thus, make sure your space is always organised and things that you are not using for a season are tucked away in your storage area so that you have space available for seasonal clothes.
- Sliding doors – If you are tight on space, choose sliding doors over swinging ones. This way, opening the closet won’t require much space.
- Shelving System – This method is your best friend in terms of organising shoes, small clothes and knick–knacks. Invest in a decent shelving system so that your clothes are properly sorted within your wardrobe as well.
- Labelling – Use labels on boxes so that you are aware of what is tucked in which box and finding something isn’t a struggle.
- Folding Techniques – This may take some effort, but get clued up on the fastest, most efficient folding techniques. Store your clothes folded neatly and you’ll thank yourself when getting ready in a hurry!
- Lingerie – Keep one drawer or shelve exclusively for your lingerie. The trick to maintaining hygiene and quality of your underclothing is keeping it separate from your other clothes.
