Are you running short of closet space? Do you have a small bedroom which is being used in a wasteful manner? Well, if this is the case, you will be pleased to know that you can easily transform that small bedroom into a functional dressing room with minimum efforts. Below is a list of easy guidelines to assist you in the venture –

First of all, you need to get everything out of the room and get the room cleaned. You also need to ensure that the walls are not infected, and the floor does not feature molds or any kind of problems.

Evaluate your needs and decide upon them. Do you want a lovely dressing room, or maybe you require functional storage space? Determining the requirements shall assist you in efficient decoration of the room.

As you are designing a dressing room, it is recommended to first chalk out wall space for a mirror. If possible, select a full length empty wall for mounting the mirror.

Dress the remaining walls in an appealing manner. You may either paint the walls with colors or simple install wallpapers with bright prints. In either of the cases, ensure to select bright colors and lively prints so that the place appears welcoming. In addition, also ensure to avoid colors which are completely contrasting to the skin such as wine purple, wood brown, grass green, etc.

Determine the closet requirements and accordingly buy the units. You may either buy traditional full wardrobes or simply mount racks and shelves on the walls. In addition, also ensure to squeeze out space for shoes and other miscellaneous accessories such as bags, scarves, ties, etc. if you are selecting open shelves, hang curtains in front of them in order to hide them.

Install adequate lighting system in the room. Besides having a strong light to illuminate the entire area, you may also install focus bulbs near the mirror or above the closet units.

Introduce a comfy lounge chair or love seat in the room so that you can relax while you decide upon the clothes to be worn. You may even consider introducing a trundle day bed, in case you have guests. It is also recommended to cover the floor with an area rug. A rough and affordable rug would do the needful.{pics from flickr}.
