inset ceiling spotlights are often the best option. Ensure that you have enough to light the room brightly, particularly if your finishes are dark. And if you decide to screen off your clothes with doors, fit sensor-operated lights that switch on when you open the doors. While the organisation of storage is essentially utilitarian, there is always an element of aesthetics, too. Even plain, open-fronted storage comes in a choice of finishes, while bespoke versions could incorporate exotic woods, leather or wicker. In an ideal world, you would match the style of the dressing room to that of your bedroom, picking out colours, finishes and details such as drawer handles and light switches to blend seamlessly from one room to the other.

CREATING A DRESSING ROOM AREA IN A BEDROOM If you don’t have enough space to build a dedicated dressing room, consider sectioning off one end of the bedroom to act as a storage/dressing area. You could simply use a curtain or screen to separate the spaces or, more permanently, build a false wall to act as a headboard and, on the other side, a wardrobe. Make the wall as high as the hanging space needed for your longest clothes, but stop it short of the ceiling to increase the sense of space and light in the room. As with any space-saving storage requirements, ensure that any fitted furniture makes use of the full height and width available, and look out for clever fittings such as corner carousels, pull-down hangers and tilting laundry baskets.
