A great-looking dressing room is truly a wonderful sight. Every celebrity takes great care of their dressing room and there’s a reason for this – it tells a story about you as a person – if you pay great attention to it, it is a sign that you are deeply involved with becoming a better version of you. A tidy dressing room means that you are tidy and organized. Here are some ideas on how to design a perfect dressing room.
Now, what’s a dressing room without a mirror? If you are unable to see how you look without getting out of your dressing room, then your dressing room isn’t really complete, now is it? However, there’s more to a dressing room mirror than simply installing one. Depending on the size of your dressing room (is it a whole room, or only a pantry-sized storage space?) You can place your mirror in different spots. If you don’t have enough space, you can use the door for it, if you do, you can buy several mirrors for a variety of angles.
The most important factor to take into account when buying a dressing room mirror is that it displays the true representation of yourself – it shouldn’t make you thinner, fatter, shorter or taller – it should give you a clear picture of how you look.
The color of your dressing room plays a vital role in your dressing routine. If you’re lucky enough to have a spare, large room, make sure that you paint the walls completely white and get a black bed. Now, complement this with some black furniture and, finally a black closet – black makes for easy distinction between pieces of clothing and gives of a generally luxurious vibe.
If you have a pantry-sized dressing room, think about not painting it completely black. Black does give off a feeling of prestige, but the only feel that it will evoke in a space this small is that of dark and a dingy place. Instead, go with neutral colors, such as white, light blue, etc.
Regardless of how good a mirror you’ve bought, it won’t do you much good if you don’t provide have lighting for your dressing room – without quality lighting stains are easy to miss, colors easy to mismatch, as well as socks. In addition to this, a badly-lit dressing room will make finding clothes difficult, not just when it comes to color, but also the type.
Proper lighting will go a long way in making it easy for you to find what you need, without ending up with your entire closet on the floor.
Natural lighting is always the best, but distributing it to your dressing room is somewhat difficult and often impossible. Either opt for skylights or artificial light source. When it comes to lighting, LED downlights are always the best choice – even if they are a tad more expensive than your regular lights, they pay off in the long run and are extremely environmentally friendly.
Clothing storage and assignment
Arrange your clothing from top to bottom, as you wear clothes. In this way you’ll get to imagine how pieces of clothing will work with one another and makes for easy comparison. Keep your ties on your closet doors, if possible, if not, find a separate solution, you’ll often be comparing the ties independently from other pieces of clothing using your hands. Finally, having a drawer in which to store your watches looks fantastic – you’ll get to feel like James Bond, regardless of your gender!
Now, if you have the luxury of an entire dressing room, you might want to consider adding some furniture. The central island can serve as a place to store accessories, toiletries and jewelry. You should get at least one backless chair, for you to sit on when trying stuff out and at least one more for setting aside potential outfits for the day.
Organizing your dressing room might sound easy, but it does require dedication. The whole point of storing items is having some sort of organization, so make sure not to leave your stuff everywhere – make staying in your dressing room an enjoyable experience. Buy a good mirror, quality lighting and follow the advice provided and you’re good to go!
