How to create the perfect dressing room

Create the perfect dressing room with these designs and bedroom decorating ideas

A dressing room is the ultimate luxury. After all, who wouldn't want all of their clothes neatly hung up and shoes beautifully stored away, making getting dressed in the morning a whole lot easier.

Let us guide you in all the little extras that will make that space so much more stylish and organised.

Start with your main furniture. A wardrobe is an obvious place to begin when designing the perfect dressing room. Choose carefully to make sure you get the most storage space out of your wardrobe. Make sure there is plenty of shelving in your wardrobe so you can stack up labelled boxes, filled with of all your favourite clothes.

A white dressing table is another pretty place to make the most of smart storage solutions. Slot boxes under your table to keep all of your extra accessories safe and display your favourite jewellery and perfume either in bell jars or on beautiful glass trays on top of the dressing table.

There are so many ways to pack your clothes and accessories away in a dressing room. Choose breathable storage boxes, lined with acid-free tissue paper to protect your favourite knits, or keep lingerie in cotton storage bags, hanging on your door. Padded hangers are a pretty way of protecting your clothes and will mean you can keep your favourite clothes on display, without losing that boudoir aesthetic.
