If you are in the process of adding a custom wardrobe to your home, we are sure that you are doing plenty of research into the different styles and designs available (Pinterest is great, isn’t it?). As such, we are sure that you are aware of the rise in the number of dressing rooms being installed in Australian homes. If you aren’t quite sure about what these spaces actually are or why they’re a great addition for your home, you’ve come to the right place.
What is a dressing room?
Essentially, this is a much larger walk in wardrobe where you are able to get dressed as well as store your clothes. They often include a full-length mirror, a couch or chair of some kind and sometimes even a dressing table where accessories and makeup can be applied. More attention is also paid to lighting – windows and skylights are a popular addition, as they will allow you to see what your outfit will look like in natural lighting.
What are the benefits?
You might actually be surprised to learn that there are a number of benefits associated with the addition of a dressing room to your custom wardrobe. We have outlined some of these below:
- Increased Privacy
One of the best things about these rooms is that you can increase your level of privacy for getting changed. If someone were to inadvertently walk into your bedroom whilst you were getting changed, you would have another barrier between you. This is perfect if you have inquisitive children or even a nosy parent who just likes to walk in unannounced. It is not uncommon for these rooms to have their own door, either.
- Keeps Bedroom Tidy
When you’re in a rush to get ready in the morning, we understand the temptation to just leave discarded garments on your bed or the floor instead of putting them away. We also understand the relief of kicking off your high heels at the end of a long day. The result, however, is a messy bedroom. A dressing room will enable you to keep this mess contained – and you can simply close the door if you have visitors.
- Keep Everything Together
In many other custom wardrobe designs, your clothes and shoes are kept together but your accessories are often kept in your bedroom so that they don’t become lost. A dressing room (particularly one with a table), on the other hand, can ensure that everything you need to get ready in the morning is kept in the one place. This can actually help to decrease the time you take to get ready – couldn’t we all benefit from this?
We hope that you have found this article useful in determining whether a dressing room is a good addition for your custom wardrobe or not. Whilst these spaces are useful for a number of reasons, it is important to remember that they should only be added if you have the available space. There is absolutely nothing wrong with getting dressed in your bedroom or bathroom, so it is important that you don’t see these rooms as the be all and end all.
