With the average woman in the UK owning 21 pairs of shoes and 17 bags at any one time, it's no surprise that a dressing room is high on most people's wish lists! A whole room dedicated to clothing overspill is a luxury, so if you don't have the space, the same boutique feel can be achieved in even the most bijoux of places with some space-saving tricks and a bit of creative thinking!
Shoes are fabulous in themselves, so don't hide them away; display your favourite pairs neatly on open-front shelving. Mounted white frames are a great way of keeping colourful belts, scarves and necklaces looking neat - and double up as original wall features, too!
2. Cupboard love
Give a large wardrobe a bespoke feel with a few creative touches; chalkboard labels and homemade tags, as well as padded hangers and decorative boxes all make for practical yet pretty organisation solutions. A dressed mannequin and oversized mirror are quick and easy ways to bring that high-end feel into a dressing area and essential for keeping precious outfits in shape and seeing what you look like with them on!
A classic roll-top bath takes centre stage in this glamorous dressing room – something to aspire to! Bespoke shelving and breathable storage boxes house accessories and last season's favourites, while a floral print screen creates privacy for changing.
A country-inspired feature wall provides the perfect backdrop for this chic clothes rack; a handy way of getting your outfit ready for the next day and letting it air overnight, while contributing towards that sought-after boudoir look. Place a seat with a cosy throw nearby so you can slip shoes on and off in comfort.
5. Dainty display
Assorted antique furniture and plush textiles give an opulent feel to a dressing room. Choose small table lamps for feel-good lighting and display your favourite perfumes, jewellery and photographs on a traditional dressing table, complete with vintage tri-fold mirror – how very Downton Abbey!
