Dressing Room Inspiration

Dressing Room Inspiration

You may recall, if you are an avid reader of my blog, that we recently had an extension added to the side of our house which means that we now have a garage with an utility room and shower room behind it, and above a master bedroom with an ensuite and space for a walk in wardrobe/dressing room. 

Despite the build being completed for about 6 months now, we ran out of money to finish the rooms and apart form the garage which is now being used, the other areas are currently redundant until we can save up enough to finish them. There is no rush as such because it was the garage that my OH was keen to have , and we did not have the extension added to allow us more room, because our house was already big enough (it was done as an investment really), but obviously it would be nice to finish it and then we can move into our now bedroom. 

Still, while we wait to raise the money required, we have both been thinking about how we want to decorate our new bedroom, tile our en suite bathroom and design our walk in wardrobe/dressing room.

The latter of these rooms, is an exciting area because I am looking forward to designing a space that can accommodate our clothes, shoes and my dressing table that can be hidden away by closing the door behind it.  Because it is being built around the eaves of the room, it does having sloping walls but then I like this because it makes the room more quirky and unique. 

I would like a simple, minimalist design possibly all white with some whicker hampers included somehow for extra storage, as I have a few kept back from my blogging over the years. I want it open plan, that is to say I do not want a built in walk in wardrobe with doors covering the clothing. So exposed hanging rails and shelving units, a bit like a boutique clothes shop in a way I guess.

This idea could lend itself quite nicely, although my OH might feel it is a little too much like a clothes shop I guess!

I also like the idea of having a few drawers too hide away underwear which  can be stored more neatly making it easier to find what you want and keep the drawers neat and tidy.

Due to the sloping ceiling in our walk in wardrobe room, I really think this kind of layout could work really well too

as it takes into account the odd wall shape and allows for ingenious ways of creating storage. 

Because we have such a great block of natural light coming from our Solstro top hung roofwindow, the room will never feel too small or too dark.

With this in mind, I think I would love to incorporate a small dressing table at the far end wall directly beneath the roofwindow.

I think this would be a lovely little space just for me to style my hair and do my make up. 

I also adore space saving hacks like these using mason jars or similar , which could top on the space surrounding my dressing table. 

I have a lot of ideas and it is very exciting to create this space, and be able to enjoy using it every day.
