A Simple Scandinavian Style

This Scandinavian inspired dressing room design with its elegant lines and pristine finish is surely every woman’s dream come true. This type of dressing room furniture is a mix of closed storage, drawers and open shelves providing oodles of wardrobe space. A handsome dressing table with a simple cabinet design is set to the side. The central floor area is left open and clutter-free enhancing the minimalist yet stylish feel that the dressing room has.

Waste Not, Want Not

Space is like gold for an interior designer and it is sheer blasphemy to waste it or not utilise it properly. Precious real estate has been used to the fullest in this wardrobe design with dressing table. Note the clever use of a narrow space between the door and window. A single door wardrobe has been installed along with a mirrored dressing table. Drawers run the length of the dressing cupboard. And that is not all! There is storage space built behind the mirror, giving the small bedroom that extra advantage.

Tuck It Tight Into An Alcove

We firmly believe that space constraints need not dampen your enthusiasm for classy décor. This dressing room design illustrates just that. The small alcove is effectively converted into a dressing room mirror. The dressing cabinet design is quite smart, with the set of drawers mounted on the wall, leaving the floor space empty. Open shelves add to the clean look and a full-length mirror makes dressing easy and convenient. The entire space seems even bigger with a mirror running alongside seemingly doubling its size.

Reflections That Won’t Be In Vain

Our next recommendation for dressing room designs with mirrors is a gorgeous walk in closet. The wall of open shelves filled with shoes, that will make even Imelda Marcos envious, sure grabs your attention. What is also striking is the floor to ceiling mirror that makes this narrow space seem much bigger. Closer inspection will reveal that the mirror is mounted on a sliding wardrobe door making it a wonderful cupboard design for dressing room. The other dressing room furniture is a whimsical rocking chair that adds a lovely pop of colour, and a set of sleek drawers. This dressing room has everything you need to help you get ready for the day or prepare to dazzle at the party.

Lights Make Your Dressing Room Pretty

While you can always install task lighting to aid your dressing, there is nothing quite like natural light to do the job. This wardrobe design with dressing table does exactly that by taking full advantage of light streaming in through the balcony glass doors. One-fourth of the wardrobe is given over to the dresser with a mirror being installed on the door. Discreet drawers are built below ensuring a clean look that is also practical. Flush mount ceiling light right above provides the required light for gloomy days and dressing after daylight hours.

Get That Seating Right

A good wardrobe with dressing table design will give you practical storage solution and a mirror. A great dressing cabinet design also provides seating. The seating in this dressing area is solved by unconventional means, through a pouf. The pouf can magically blend into the wardrobe by being tucked away under the mirror in the space specially designed for this purpose. When required, simply pull it out and convert the area into a mini dressing room.

Slim It Down

This small bedroom has a dressing cabinet design that floors you. Side tables are entirely done away with and instead a dressing cabinet is placed. In keeping with the dimensions of the space, the dressing cabinet and mirror are kept quite slim. The drawers are small but provide enough storage space. The mirror is purposely designed to be tall and narrow to add height to the room. Note how there is empty space left around the dressing cabinet, adding to the open feel of the room. Placing the mirror next to the window also makes for a great dressing room idea.

Integrate The Dressing Cabinet

Make your furniture multi-task with this dressing design. A workspace, a TV panel and a dressing cabinet come together to create a fabulous combo. The dressing cabinet is simple in its elegance with the mirrored closet doing double duty as a cupboard and a mirror.  A floating shelf is a conveniently located flat surface to hold your make-up while you get your mascara on right. An ottoman in the same neutral shade as the rest of the room is a good seating option, while a pair of slim pendants provide task lighting above the mirror.

When Your Dressing Cabinet Is Not A Cabinet

Several floating shelves flank a full-length mirror in an aesthetically pleasing pattern. These are handy for keeping perfumes, make-up and jewellery.

Make Lofty Ideas A Reality

There are times when a wardrobe design with dressing table means that you must cut down on loft space. Not with this space-saving solution. The cupboards in this room begin with a dressing cabinet. Drawers finished with wood and ivory alternate below a deep-set mirror. The top of the drawer closet holds dresser items. The loft stretches above the dresser and across the room. This design element above the dressing table does not compromise on space. Since the dressing cabinet section of this wardrobe is next to the door, the open space is one of the first things that greets you instead of a boring cupboard.
