For storing clothes and shoes, people increasingly prefer dressing rooms, since they are more convenient to use and much more functional than bulky wardrobes or dressers. To organize the wardrobe space and fill it, it is necessary to purchase special furniture, which is presented on the furniture market in a wide range.
To organize a separate dressing room, either a separate room or a small niche or a dedicated space is suitable - in the corridor or in the bedroom. In furniture showrooms and interior chain stores, there are ready-made solutions for wardrobe furniture - a great way to save your time thinking about the plan for a future room and spend money wisely. An alternative would be custom-made modular wardrobe furniture, that is, made according to an individual sketch and created according to your measurements, that is, the parameters of a room or niche.
How to create a dressing room about and what should everyone think about? It is important that the space is as spacious as possible and at the same time compact (if we talk about a small or confined space), if there is no choice left, use our advice.
Chipboard furniture is the most common and affordable option chosen by practical people. Traditionally, built-in wardrobes and chipboard shelves are located around the perimeter of the dressing room and are the functional structure of the room, or its basis. Wardrobes, shelves, side walls and even doors are made of chipboard, but in such a "collection" of furniture you still have to add metal - rods and fittings.
Chipboard furniture can be easily purchased and independently attached to the walls, where an additional room is planned to settle - a dressing room. Furniture made of this material is inexpensive, but its service life is not too long.
The next type is aluminum curtain walls, which are aesthetic and modern. This type of wardrobe furniture "steals" less space (sometimes very valuable), it is ventilated and has a slightly higher cost than chipboard furniture for a wardrobe. It is worth noting that aluminum is a light material, and cheap designs sometimes cannot withstand the heavy weight of clothing, so when choosing this type of wardrobe furniture, you should give preference to proven brands.
Shelves with a mesh are considered a type of hinged structure, which are just as well ventilated and practical, but it is worth calculating their width and depth in accordance with the weight of the clothes so that they do not deform.
There are clothes rails in every wardrobe, and their presence is determined by two or more pieces in order to use the room most functionally. It differs in its length depending on how long clothes will be stored on it.
Solid wood wardrobe furniture is the most expensive type of filling your dream wardrobe. Such furniture is created entirely from hardwood - oak, for example. This filling of the dressing room is like a parade of wardrobes in a separate space of your home and, in terms of practicality, the most optimal option. Solid wood furniture is heavy, cozy and noble.
All kinds of retractable structures will become a piece of furniture in your wardrobe: drawers and shelves that allow you to store personal items and those items of clothing that you use more often.
Separately, it is worth talking about shelves and accessories for storing shoes: everyone will definitely need this furniture and it looks different: inclined hinged shelves, galoshes (vertical storage boxes).
The mirror, like wardrobe furniture, is an important and practical item in every room. It is important to add the right lighting (daylight).
Wardrobe furniture facts:
- Traditionally, cabinet cabinets are mounted along the entire perimeter, which are attached to the floor and ceiling. Cabinets have sections: open or closed shelves, drawers and others, which allows you to arrange clothes and accessories in a convenient order.
- In the corner areas of the dressing room, things are usually placed that are difficult to access, that is, suitable for the past or next season. The same applies to the upper sections of the dressing room, where you can place a suitcase and other "travel" or rarely used items.
- Furniture for a small dressing room is traditionally chosen in the form of hinged structures made of chipboard or aluminum; this allows you not to take up extra space and make the room as functional as possible.
- Furniture fittings in the dressing room are matched to the overall concept of the room: if it is made in a classic style, then the handles, hangers, and opening mechanisms are made of strong metal of a strict form.
