Cupboard designs for your dressing room

A dressing room at home is more than just a space to store your clothes and shoes. With these ideas, you can turn into a place where you enjoy the ‘retail experience’

A dressing room should reflect your personality and style while offering you the possibility to store, organize and view each item individually. It is possible to personalise the space even if it is located in a small corner of your bedroom. Dressing room cupboards or bedroom cupboards with a dressing table come in a variety of budget-friendly and trendy designs.

What Are The Essential Features Of A Cupboard Design For The Dressing Room?

  • It has a mix of drawers, shelves, racks and hanging rods to accommodate different clothes, sizes/types and shoes.
  • It can be designed in different layouts like wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling design on one side or both sides of the room.
  • It may come with or without an attached dressing table but it has to necessarily have a full-size viewing mirror, an ironing board and a medium-size seating space nearby (else, what’s the point!).
  • It needs to be divided into separate zones where you place things according to the frequency of use:
  1. Upper Zone – Store seasonal items and/or less frequently used items like winter clothes and shoes 

2. Middle Zone – Store casual/formal wear and/or most frequently used items like undergarments, belts and bags 

3. Lower Zone – Store shoes and/or other comparatively less hygienic items like shoe cleaning and polishing items 

  • It should preferably have bright modern lighting like LED strip lights or recess lights – either built into the design or outside it which adds to the aesthetics and functionality of the space. 
  • In case you have a dressing table in the space, make sure you add both front and back-lighting to the mirror so that your face is well lit.
  • Pick the right materials for your dressing room cupboard as per your needs and the location of the dressing room (sometimes adverse weather conditions impact the durability and functional efficiency of the room). Wood is the most preferred material for designing cupboards, be it in the dressing room or any other room for that matter.

Now, let’s have a look at some amazing dressing room cupboard design ideas. We’re pretty sure you’ll fall in love and be inspired by them!
