Dressing rooms are becoming more and more popular in the UK. Lots of people want to have these spaces in their homes now so they can show off their clothing collection and change in comfort. Some people even want open spaces where they can get ready with friends, making the whole process more social. This is quite similar to the rise in open plan kitchens. With bespoke joinery you can create everything you need to have a luxury experience similar to a high end boutique in your own home.
The key to creating a stunning dressing room is to have the right furniture. You want to make the most of the space while also being able to show things off. The whole room will feel better if you have custom furnishings to hold everything, whether it is shoes and trainers, dresses, belts, or even underwear.
With great designs your furnishings and clothes can become statement pieces. For example you can have cupboards or wardrobes that people can see into so your items are on display. Islands with glass tops are particularly popular. You can also choose the details in the wood, including intricate carving or natural looking joints.
Another thing you cannot underestimate with a dressing room is the quality of the lighting. You need the lights to be bright enough so you can see when you are changing. However, you also need to think about shadows. This means you must consider the placement of the lights too. Natural light is always best but soft spotlights and mood lighting can be great too. You will also want to think about how you illuminate items you want to show off.
His and hers
Men and women want different things from their dressing rooms. With bespoke joinery this is easier because there is a wider selection of timbers to choose from. This gives people the choice of lighter or darker shades to suit their tastes. Some people even go as far as to have a dressing room that is split into two sides – his and hers. They could even opt for retractable screens that can provide more privacy when necessary.
