So, what do you need? There are a five key elements to consider when setting up a dressing area in your home:
- A dressing table
- A chair or stool
- A large mirror
- Good lighting
- Storage for clothes & accessories
Choosing a dressing room table and chair
A dressing table is the key piece of furniture when you’re getting ready for the day ahead - giving you a place to sit and get ready in style, with all of your essentials close to hand. They come in a range of styles, from sleek and modern, to vintage and ornate.
Once you’ve decided on your dressing table, you’ll need a creative chair to match. Whether it’s a cute vanity stool, button-tufted seat or an elegant wingback style, having a comfortable spot to sit will make your space more enticing.
Dressing table ideas - three different styles
Modern dressing table
Bring your look bang up to date with a table in a contemporary style. This type has all the features of a traditional dressing table but with a subtler, less flashy design.
Through the looking glass
Find the right mirror to match your dressing room design.
Triple dressing table mirror
The tri-fold design of this mirror lets you see your face and profile at the same time. This makes it a lot easier to apply make-up and style your hair.
Dressing room storage
Having a well-organised space makes getting dressed in the mornings a whole lot easier. Not only will it make your space feel less cluttered but you'll also be able to find things quicker.
Need somewhere to stash your shoes? A cabinet just for shoes makes it easier to keep track of your footwear. Organise them by style, colour or occasion, so you can quickly pick out the ones you want to wear for the day.
Hanging rails and canvas wardrobes
Keep your outfits organised with a hanging rail or canvas wardrobe. As well as being a smart way to store clothes, they often include space for fashion accessories as well.
Both practical and fashionable, ottomans can be used to store everything from hats and scarves to bags and belts. What's more, they also provide a quick seat to put your shoes on before heading out.
Jewellery boxes and holders
Rather than hiding it away in a dressing table drawer, why not make a feature of your jewellery. From boxes and dishes to holders and stands, there are lots of creative ways you can display your favourite jewellery pieces.
Dressing room lighting
Dressing areas are often closed off or windowless spaces, so having good lighting is essential.
