stor­age should be the first thing that is in­stalled. Or­gan­i­sa­tion is es­sen­tial as a dress­ing room is likely to be home to a range of clothes and ac­ces­sories. Take note of ev­ery­thing that will be kept in the room be­fore or­der­ing new fur­ni­ture or stor­age items.

Be­spoke fur­ni­ture can be de­signed to suit your needs, so if you’re a shoe fa­natic, for ex­am­ple, you can have a rack made to your spec­i­fi­ca­tions. While some don’t like the idea of open rails, th­ese are bud­get-friendly and are ideal for those who tend to for­get about clothes hid­den away in the wardrobe.

if work­ing with a be­spoke fur­ni­ture spe­cial­ist, you can cre­ate a dress­ing ta­ble in any style; some might like the idea of a chic, mod­ern glass ta­ble, while oth­ers may pre­fer a French-style de­sign with or­nate carv­ings.

In­vest in full-length mir­rors, which have the added ben­e­fit of mak­ing the room seem big­ger. In terms of light­ing, many peo­ple favour a Hol­ly­wood-style mir­ror, with lights all around the frame. Make sure light­ing for the rest of the space is soft and prefer­ably in­stalled with a dim­mer.
