Turning a Spare Room into a Dressing Room


In the hustle and bustle of a busy lifestyle, we easily forget that a life worth living is a life worth organizing.

Perhaps you have very little space or not enough space. Perhaps a spare room is waiting to be transformed into your own personal space where dressing becomes no ordinary ritual.

To dress in clean crisp clothes that can easily breathe in an airy, well-designed dressing room (also known as a large walk-in closet), well that is an experience we are all worthy of.

You can take charge of your life and the manner in which you dress with a style that’s all your own. For the many that have turned a spare bedroom into a dressing room, they also went so far as to add inspiring pictures and words of inspiration and motivation to begin their day.

Dressing and grooming is all about how you present yourself to the world with your own brand, regardless of specific fashion.

It’s how you carry yourself and present the best you… every day! Taking the time to do so with ease and in the right environment can make all the difference.

When Gloria Dilecce decided to convert her spare room into a dressing room, she wanted more than a walk-in closet for her clothes and shoes. She wanted a dream dressing room, her very own sanctuary where she could pamper herself while dressing daily and for special occasions.

“Ever since I was a little girl, the idea of a dressing room was an ongoing dream of mine”, says Gloria. “Once I decided to convert the spare bedroom into a dressing room, it made all the difference in my life. At the time, my smaller walk-in closet just wasn’t enough space for my husband and I.”

Your dream closet can become a reality! It may sound overwhelming, but it is a project that requires helpful, professional, and trusting service. Imagine how exhilarating it would be to have all of your clothes and valuables in one place, where dressing is a pleasurable experience rather than a chore.

Your dream closet and dressing room can be designed to be an elegant, calm, and soothing space where life slows down just enough for you to unwind. It can be a place with plenty of space and light, setting the stage where selecting your clothes will be made with ease.

Often while rushing around, there is not enough time to give much attention into dressing so that you feel good, look your best and, as a result, perform at your best. As we all know how we look will often determine how we feel and that translates and is directly related to how we perform and behave.

Truly, dressing can become an art once you have the right place chosen and the proper design in place. From there the process is quite simple. Allocating a spare room for a dressing room concept can have limitless possibilities.

Imagine sitting on a bench comfortably while you are putting your socks, stockings, and shoes on. The space can include a full-length mirror with proper reflective lighting either from natural light from a window or by installing brighter light fixtures.

How many times have we put on navy blue socks with black pants, a blouse that looks white but is creamier once you get outdoors, or pants, jackets, and shirts that are often crowded into a small closet and not as crisp, requiring touch-ups before you wear them?

Now imagine pullout shelves lined with shoes where you can mix and match your clothes quickly and efficiently, without having to go back and forth to other areas of the home. Not only for the rich and famous, your ideas of a dream dressing room are just waiting to unfold.

Gloria says that having a dressing room “feels like I have my own boutique right in my home”.

Whether you are in the fashion industry like Gloria or you just want to be able to see everything at a glance, these convenient features add to the comfort of dressing. Soon after using her dressing room, Gloria came to realize that it made her life, getting dressed easier and more enjoyable. It became a routine that she truly appreciates. “I never had thought of turning my spare bedroom into this amazing dressing room until ORGANIZED INTERIORS had suggested it. What else would I do with three extra bedrooms without children at home? Why not pamper myself? It was well worth the time and expense. My clothes appreciate it just as much.”
No matter what your needs, a spare room dedicated for dressing and storage can provide endless possibilities. A dream closet or dressing room can not only accommodate the smallest of conveniences that make life simple, it is organized and a joy to be in. Organized Interiors leaves no stone unturned, no detail is too small. Require a locked document drawer? Done. Needing compartments for jewelry so nothing is tangled and messy, done. How about the many clever ways to accommodate, scarves, ties, belts, shoes…. easily done. Gloria adds, “I particularly love my fold out ironing board and valet so I can hang what I picked out for the next day, making coordinating my look a lot faster.”
The days of being limited to one type of hanging and minimal storage are over. A spare room that is transformed into a dressing room in is no longer a closet; it is a special room for you and your clothes. It can be as stylish or as simple as you like with unique features that can make this space the envy of all your friends and family. A combination of shelving, pullouts shoe racks, valet poles, enclosed long hanging for your finest garments are options that are sure to enhance your dressing experience. Why not add a hamper, a jewelry drawer complete with lock; all within a simple reach and limited only by your imagination.
The desire to have a special place for dressing is growing quickly within the custom home building industry. Why? People are beginning to see the value in an organized way of dressing daily so that we can look and be our best selves. A dream closet is synonymous with luxury, elegance and every closet design is unique to the person who owns it. Your own distinct style coupled with Organized Interiors’ innovative and creative ideas and workmanship, your dream closet will be something to call your very own. Imagine walking into your own personal space and the only thing missing is your signature. It’s that simple! That’s how personal this space will become to you. To have a place for everything and everything in its place will become the space you value most…your personal sanctuary and one that you will value and want to care for; it will be priceless. “All my clothes & shoes are all so visible, the complete solution to all my morning problems” says Gloria.
