Create the Perfect Bespoke Dressing Room
Many of us struggle to find enough storage for clothes in our bedrooms, often wardrobes can be too large and bulky or they simply just don’t fit. However, there are several ways to improve storage, one of which is through the use of fitted dressing rooms.
Why install a bespoke dressing room?
For many, dressing rooms may seem unattainable simply because they believe they don’t have the space. However this isn’t the case, it can be possible to get a bespoke, tailored dressing room in your home regardless of size.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits to installing a fitted dressing room, they can increase storage, help you to optimise bedroom space and increase the price of your home.
For many people, versatility is one of the most important things in the home, and a bespoke dressing room can be one of the most versatile rooms in the house if done correctly. While normally intended for clothes, shoes and other fashion accessories, it is easy to tailor fitted wardrobes to other purposes, cupboards can be used to store toys and games or bedroom linen.
You can get creative with storage
Homes in cities are often smaller then those in the country or suburbs and as such it is important for homeowners to maximise every last bit of space they have available and so a bespoke dressing room could be ideal. However, if you don’t have the opportunity to dedicate a whole room then thanks to fitted wardrobes and shelving an alcove can be turned in to an excellent dressing space.
Larger homes offer more opportunity to get creative with storage solutions. Fitted wardrobes can be designed to include pull out draws and shoe racks, hanging rails, sliding doors and much more. Also if you do have a larger space available, it is possible to outfit the dressing room with other furniture such as large dressing tables that can provide a variety of uses, because who doesn’t want to create the Carrie Bradshaw dressing room of their dreams?!
You can finally use up that spare room
Spare rooms are often relegated to being a home office or just used for extra household storage space, despite being the perfect space for a bespoke dressing room.
It is understandable that many now see the home office as a necessity for day to day life, and won’t be any hurry to give it up in favour of a dressing room. However, it’s entirely possible to integrate the two. At Tara Neil, our fitted wardrobes and cupboards can be customized to fit seamlessly fit alongside desks and other home office furnishings.
Bespoke rooms and furniture could increase the price of your home
Could a bespoke dressing room increase the value of your home? Quite possibly, as even smaller projects such as additional bathrooms can add thousands to a houses value, so why not a bespoke dressing room?
They are still seen as a luxury room and as such a certain type of buyer will jump at the chance to own a home that has one, even if that means paying more then they would’ve done if your home was without one.
How to measure and plan for your fitted dressing room
So you’ve decided that a bespoke dressing room is what you want, now it’s time to start planning.
When planning a dressing it is important to work out exactly what size your room is and how big the fitted wardrobes will need to be. To do this, it is a good idea to lay out all the clothes you own and organise them into separate groups, for example, knitwear could be one and shirts another. It is also a good idea to work out which clothes you want to hang or fold, this will help you work out if you need more shelves or hanging rails.
You should also make a list of all the accessories you have so you can work out the amount of space you will need to dedicate to them. While doing this you can also decide how you plan to organise your dressing room. We recommend keeping commonly used items within easy reach whereas rarely worn items or those saved for special occasions should be stored safely out the way until they’re needed.
