Everyone’s dream is a dressing room in the bedroom: how to arrange it correctly and fit it even into a small space
Equipping a storage system is a necessary event. In most cases, a separate dressing room is much more convenient than just a closet, albeit roomy. In the article we understand what to look for in the layout of a bedroom with a dressing room.

Types of systems

Options for small rooms
How to think about storage organization
The arrangement of the dressing room in the bedroom depends on the area and parameters of the room itself. Conventionally, there are several types of storage systems.
This is a large-sized structure that occupies the entire or almost the entire wall. Often the door opening mechanism is made according to the compartment principle to save space.
It is convenient if the room is less than 20 square meters. meters, and at the same time you need to consider storing a large number of clothes. If there is a niche or opening, you can install here. Thus, the wall is «aligned». And this option looks much more harmonious than a separate piece of furniture.
Built-in structures are made to order, so you can think over the height and number of shelves to suit your needs.
Part of the room
Perhaps one of the most popular types. In addition, a good option for rooms of irregular shape, for example, elongated. In this way, you can fence off a part, visually making the space more proportional. If the room is square or not too narrow, the wall is erected opposite the window, along the bed. In the design of the bedroom with dressing room, which is presented below, it was decided to replace the built-in wardrobe with a small pantry. She looks very neat.
If the interior is made in a modern style, you can use more interesting materials and textures. So, the door to the dressing room in this project is supplemented with slats that “lighten” it. In addition, the problem of ventilation is solved in this way.
In our selection, there are two examples of this type of implementation. The first is a dressing room behind the bed in the bedroom. It is separated from the rest of the space by a narrow wall, which is also an accent. In the opening there is a built-in wardrobe, a dressing table and a mirror.
The second project is a checkpoint near the door, more precisely, at the entrance. What is remarkable: the top of the glass wall facilitates the construction and fills the dark room with natural light.
As you can see, this system is also suitable for medium-sized rooms. Walk-through dressing room turns out to be narrow, but with proper organization — functional and roomy.
In medium-sized rooms, you can consider the corner layout of the dressing room in the bedroom. This design often consists of an L-shaped headset.
You can highlight the wardrobe with curtains or partitions. Transparent glass options have been especially relevant lately. This project actually turned out to be a built-in wardrobe with translucent frosted doors.
And here is the whole room.
Space in space
If the bedroom area is more than 20 square meters, you can think about dividing it into a storage system and a place to sleep. The classic zoning option: a full-fledged wall with a doorway. Then there are two separate places.
But you can build a more interesting wall, but in fact it will be one space. The wall, by the way, is made not only of drywall, but also of glass. A more functional option: equip shelves for clothes from the side of the wardrobe.
Sometimes, for the equipment of the wardrobe, it is not the bedroom that is sacrificed, in the event that the area is insufficient, but other rooms.
For example, in this project, they decided to sacrifice one bathroom, as well as part of the sleeping room. As a result, the area of the latter turned out to be 13 square meters, and the wardrobe — 5 square meters. At the same time, the room managed to fit a bed, a bedside table and even a dressing table. There is a bookcase between the door and the wall.
Pay attention to the bed: soft corners here are not only a tribute to fashion. Since the passage is quite narrow, there is a chance of hitting the body when moving quickly. Hitting the upholstery will not hurt.

Dressing room in a small bedroom
In small rooms, there are several tricks for arranging a wardrobe. The simplest is an open system behind a curtain. This is what the owners of the apartment shown in the photo below did.
This is an open pantry, which is located behind mustard-colored curtains. And, by the way, they have become an accent of the Scandinavian-style interior. Shelves and cabinets are the Algot storage system from IKEA (by the way, it is now out of stock and the Swedish brand offers an analogue of Jonaxel.
What to consider when arranging
- Curtains are not suitable for every interior. But they soften the white color, add warmth and comfort.
- Visually, this design looks smaller than solid frame furniture. But more things fit here, because you can actually store them from floor to ceiling.
- If the active bright color gets tired, updating the curtains is much easier than repainting the doors.
- The main disadvantage of such storage is that dust settles on things, so they will have to be washed more often.
- If there is a small child in the house, try to keep an eye on him during the games. Since the high shelves are actually in the accessible area.
Another option for a small apartment is rail. Of course, you can’t hang a huge number of things here, you’ll have to limit yourself to the minimum. But, if you already have a closet where the bulk is stored, why not use a hanger for everyday looks? Cons — all the same dust settling on clothes, and the need to always maintain order. Otherwise, everything will look cluttered.

Design and finishing features
Before implementing the idea of a built-in wardrobe in the bedroom, it is worth determining several important points that relate to its layout and decoration.
- Ventilation is a necessary element of a dark room. Even a small room should be periodically ventilated. Stagnation of air is fraught with the appearance of mold, moths and an unpleasant odor. At the same time, an active strong hood is not needed here; in cabinets, you can generally get by with a ventilation grill at the bottom and at the top near the ceiling.
- Some rooms have small windows. They just open sometimes.
- Experimenting with flooring is not worth it, the most suitable solution is the same coating as in adjacent spaces. Both laminate and parquet are suitable — there is a soft environment without temperature drops.
- But you can find a new shade in the design of the walls. The easiest way is to take paint or wallpaper a tone lighter or darker than those in the bedroom. The main mass is still unlikely to be seen behind things and shelves.
- Wooden panels are not the most relevant solution for walls, it is still better to use wallpaper or plaster. And it’s good if they are waterproof. Infrequently, but it is still desirable to wipe them from dust.
A dressing room with a window is rare. In 90% of cases, this place has no natural light at all. However, everyone likes to try on clothes in good light.
What to look out for
- Place the lamps at different levels, not just on the ceiling. So you can see every corner.
- The central light source in the form of a chandelier is not the best idea in a small space, it is better to use several spotlights. If the area is large, combine two light scenarios.
- Even if you have a closet, take a closer look at the LED lighting of the shelves — it will not be superfluous. This tape will also be relevant on the shelves. LED lamps do not consume much energy, do not heat up and last a long time with proper operation.
- Inside it is better not to use halogen lamps, they are installed on the ceiling. They heat up quickly, so they can create a fire hazard.
- To avoid color distortion, choose lamps that are closest to natural light. It is better to refuse color, too yellow and cold.
How to think about storage organization
Even from the photo of the dressing room design in the bedroom, you can understand how convenient it is to use. In order not to make a mistake, follow a few important rules.
1. Combine shelves
Instead of filling the walls from floor to ceiling with shelves of the same type, we suggest placing hangers at different levels. The first is higher, so that dresses and long clothes fit here. And the second level is lower, trousers and jeans folded in half will hang here.
It is also desirable to make shelves of different heights. Don’t forget drawers for underwear, socks and other things — the more the better.
You can also make the crossbars with a sliding mechanism, then things that you do not need this season can be pushed deeper.
2. Pick up hangers
Attention should also be paid to hangers, there should be several types of them. For outerwear, you need massive ones with wide shoulders. And, for example, light ones are suitable for scarves and blouses. You should not mix items, and you don’t need to combine coats, raincoats and jackets on the same hanger either. You can save space by hanging trousers with blouses and light shirts or sweaters.
3. Don’t forget your shoes
Shoe storage is a separate topic of a large article. The most important thing here is to put away on the shelves those pairs that you will not use in the near future. We recommend signing boxes and cases or even sticking stickers with pictures of the contents, so it will be easier to find and get what you need.
4. Organize your accessories
Sunglasses, scarves and handkerchiefs, ties and gloves are also better to pack or hang on a hanger, depending on the organization system. But when looking for a place for accessories, consider how often you use them. If every day, it makes sense to put them in plain sight. If not, dig deeper.
