The 22 Best Small Dressing Room Ideas We’ve Found

Realistically, only a few enjoy a dressing room of more than 10 m 2 at home. But don’t worry: here are the keys to create one, which takes up little but solves a lo.

1. THERE IS A HOLE BEHIND THE HEADBOARD

Yes, a very valuable space. Your bedroom may be long enough to separate the bed from one of the walls and then create a small, narrow walk-in closet (this is just 1.10 m in total width) behind, like the one in this project. A headboard that combines glass and a low wall separates the wardrobe area distributed in a front with sliding doors.

2. IN A SMALL ROOM

This dressing room has been organized in a small room attached to the bedroom. In this case, the idea was chosen to create the dressing room with open white modules that take advantage of all the walls with a U-shaped distribution. When you are a dresser, you occupy a room that already has a door, it is a good idea to leave everything in plain sight. The plus: it has an entrance of natural light.

3. SMALL WALK-IN CLOSET

Separated by a sliding bedroom door, this small dresser is a design by INAMI Fujiko. If you have a space that is wider than it is long – as here – it allows you to create a short wardrobe front; Take advantage of the hole you have in the center of the room with a pair of drawers or furniture with doors that give you more storage capacity.

4. IDEA TEN FOR A MINI DRESSING ROOM

This is a project by Pipe & Co that gives us an idea to copy when designing a small dressing room in a corner or room: play with the funds of the modules to take advantage of the space. In a corner or L composition, two 60 cm deep modules would create “dead” spaces. So play with the bottoms because if the dressing room is open it doesn’t matter if the garments stand out.

5. TWO FRONTS THAT COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER

This passage space between the bedroom and the bathroom is a perfect place to create a small dressing room. On one front, a floor-to-ceiling closet with several bodies. On the contrary, take note of the idea: a custom design that allows you to organize clothes folded on shelves and drawers as well as accessories. It is a design by the decorator Jean-Pierre Martel.

6. SMALL WALK-IN CLOSET

SMALL WALK-IN CLOSET

This idea to create a small dressing room is also a low cost. The hole is organized with shelves and instead of doors, curtains that rest on the floor have been chosen. What do you think of this idea of ​​lighting for a dressing room? Industrial style spotlights that, being adjustable, can be configured to your liking. Cabinets made by Carpenter Says, Margarita Ventura curtains, Mercantile sconces, and Gray carpet.

7. SMALL DRESSING ROOM BEHIND A LOW WALL

In this case, a partition that does not reach the ceiling defines the dressing room space in the bedroom. Think that you need a free gap between the closet and the facing wall to move at least 50 cm. So you should opt for sliding doors for the cabinets (bearing in mind that the modules are usually somewhat deeper with this type of opening) or without fronts (60 or 40 cm deep module). If you want doors, the 50 means that the gap has to be at least 60 cm.

8. A SMALL ROOM CONVERTED INTO A DRESSING ROOM

You may have one or that in the reform of the house it has gained space to what you thought was a conventional wardrobe. Now you can create a closet type that looks more like a dressing room. Make it independent with sliding doors that are integrated into the partition and so you can take advantage of the interior walls. A good idea!

9. SMALL CLOSETS ARE VERY LARGE

More than you think. Take a look at this small dressing room image (design by the decorator Blanca May). It has been created with two storage modules open and facing each other in a mini space before entering the bathroom from the bedroom. Being in a sheltered place and somewhat independent of the rest area, the idea of ​​not placing doors lightens the whole.

10. ABOVE THE DOOR THERE IS SPACE.

So is! A small distributor -with cabinets designed by Defender Architecture Domestic- that is just at the entrance to the bedroom serves here to create a work area and the dressing room with two cabinets facing each other. The way to expand the warehouse capacity is to take advantage of the gap above the door with closed modules.

11. A DRESSING ROOM IN A LOFT ROOM

DRESSING ROOM

What if the only space left at home to create a dressing room is attic? This image will inspire you to create yours. It will be small but complete because although you cannot place tall modules to hang long clothes, you can create closed or open cabinets with shelves and drawers to store folded clothes, accessories, shoes … Lacquered wood cabinets designed by Elena Jiménez, Wire chair by H. Bertie from Merchants and lamp by Bios ca and Beta.

12. PLAN AND DESIGN TO MEASURE

The modules that they sell ready for purchase do not always fit in that room or small wall that you want to convert into a dressing room. Custom designs have the advantage of taking advantage of every inch and corner as in this dressing room where the end has been reserved to create a tie accessory.

13. A MINIMALIST DRESSING ROOM

Again, this idea to create a small dressing room is low cost. It is about taking advantage of the space that is behind the headboard up to the wall or in another corner of the floor of your bedroom that is protected from looks with bars hung directly from the ceiling or fixed between walls. Without modules. The lower part can be completed with drawers, chest of drawers, baskets, or benches.

14. WITH GLASS DOORS

GLASS DOORS

If you want to save money when creating your dressing room, do without doors. But this is only recommended when left in a small room. This will not add visual noise to the bedroom. To lighten, the access doors can be made of glass, how are you … Does the idea convince you?

15. TAKING ADVANTAGE OF EVERY INCH

The parallel distribution of cabinets is the most common in small dressing rooms. The minimum distance between facing furniture must be one meter, in order to open the doors on both sides (each door usually measures about 50 cm), not hinder the passage and ensure smooth circulation. In this mini-dressing room, the space under the window has been exploited with a bench with storage. The furniture is a GUD design.

16. CLOSE IT WITH STYLE

In small locker rooms, doors can sometimes be an obstacle – as we have already seen. If it becomes impossible to respect the measures to open the doors, put some curtains like here, and solved them. We like the idea that this environment provides an elongated mirror that doubles the space and will help you look full-length with your outfits

17. A DRESSING ROOM-STUDY

In many floors, there is that tiny room that you do not know what to use. As the meters are gold, write this idea down: a small long and narrow room is now a dressing room and study at the same time. The key: floor-to-ceiling cabinets to make the most of the space, with plain fronts in light tones and to the window, a custom ledge as a desk (sash, can also be used as a dressing table). The furniture has been custom-made by Glow Rehabilitate.

18. JUICE THAT CORNER

The right angles are wonderful times to maximize space since its proportions granted the opportunity to store more in less space, thanks to depth. In this small dressing room, we see another key idea: order (more in modules without doors). Play with boxes and baskets to keep her at bay.

19. THE MUST-HAVES IN A SMALL DRESSING ROOM ARE.

SMALL DRESSING ROOM

Shelves and bars! Because they are the essential elements to place T-shirts, on the one hand, and hanging pants, shirts, and dresses on the other. If the dressing room modules are 40 cm deep, discard the drawers because they waste valuable centimeters. Idea: it is important that the hangers are all the same and maintain a minimum distance of one finger from each other.

20. A BATHROOM ADDITIVE

The location of the dressing room is also important. The most common place is the bedroom -in a setback, at the foot of the bed, behind the headboard … – but it can also be an adjoining room that is an office at the same time or the distributor that is between the rest area of ​​a room and the bathroom en suite, as it happens here.

21. CUSTOM L FURNITURE

Another example of a small dressing room in a narrow space that uses tailored furniture to fit perfectly in the available meters. In this elongated dressing room, an L-shaped distribution has been chosen. In which it is free, some hat and scarf racks occupy the minimum and help a lot. It is also important to take advantage of the space at the top. Place what you the least use there and use a sidewalk to access. 

22. INGENIOUS SOLUTIONS

We have always said that lack of space enhances ingenuity. In small dressing rooms, you will have to use solutions like these: hanging fabric compartments to put your shoes on. And it is that, as we have seen in this gallery, there are original ideas to create the perfect wardrobe, that is light and for little money.

Any corner or room, however small, with independent access, can be transformed into a dressing room. It is often tied up in favor of a guest room, study, or even as a storage room. But, think: what will you use the most in your day today? Well organized, as you have seen, a dressing room can be versatile in very little space. Do you dare to create your dressing room in a small room?

TAKE ACTION

It is the first thing you should do before starting. Measure the space available to organize clothes. Here we detail the standard measurements for each area:

  • For long garments, about 160 cm available.
  • For short garments, between 75 and 90 cm high.
  • Shirts need 50 cm wide and 45 cm high.
  • The ideal height of the drawers is 16 cm.
  • The shelves for jerseys must have a distance of 30 cm between them.
  • The pants and skirt modules with hydraulic guides, the telescopic bars, and the removable ones are essential to take advantage of the bottom of the wardrobe, which normally measures about 60 cm.
  • And for difficult corners, with a 90º angle, the shelves at different heights and the removable trays will make the most of it.

If you have a bathroom 3 m wide, you can turn it into a bathroom with a dressing room (it is an idea to create a mini dressing room that you will surely take advantage of). Take advantage of an elongated floor plan to plan a wall-to-wall closet parallel to the sink area. Keep in mind that the depth of the cabinets is 60 cm and that you must have something more than 120 cm in front: to open the doors, pass and get dressed, plus the necessary space for the bathroom elements.

The most common closet layouts in small walk-in closets are L, U, or in-line, as it leaves a central space necessary for circulation and for changing comfortably.

PLAN YOUR INTERIOR VERY WELL

In mini-dressing rooms this aspect is essential. We have seen images that surely have served as an inspiration to imagine what your dressing room would be like in that small hole you have (although you may not believe it, you have a hole). Analyze your clothes first: if shirts and jackets predominate, you will need more bars than if you have more shirts or sweaters. In general, it is better to have clothes hanging than folded if you want to avoid wrinkles. Also, bars are cheaper than shelves.

Keep in mind that for folded clothes you just need shelves that have a height of about 30 cm, although if you want to keep more bulky items calculate about 60 cm. You can also replace the doors with curtains, which reduces the budget of the wardrobe.
