A new year will often bring renovation projects to the forefront of homeowners’ minds. Whether you’re planning a conversion of an existing room, moving house and renovating or building a new extension, there are an enormous amount of things to think about. If you are considering a new walk-in wardrobe or bespoke dressing room, the key to a smooth journey is speaking to your wardrobe specialists and designers at the early planning stages. Involving a wardrobe consultation at the beginning of the process will not only avoid costly changes to the internal wall layout, and the location of electrical points further down the line, but will also ensure that the space is used to its full potential, both practically and aesthetically.

One of the most common renovations is creating a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room space that adjoins to the master bedroom, often with a direct walkway through to an en-suite bathroom. Creative planning and understanding of how to optimise storage space with an opening to another room requires careful planning to ensure the design aesthetic delivers functional storage with symmetry. Working with our team from the start will ensure that every option is explored until we find the design and layout that is best suited to your requirements.

When it comes to dressing rooms, there are some additional elements to consider. The location and different size options for a central island, how best to accommodate a dressing table and / or drawer units, how to incorporate sensor activated lighting and design considerations such as styling of the wardrobe doors. Offering guidance on placement, lighting and the overall design of your new bespoke dressing room arrangement, our team prides itself on working to a specific brief and delivering exactly what the homeowner, architect or interior designer is looking for.

So if you’re planning a renovation or are converting a room into your dream walk-in wardrobe or dressing room, it’s never too early to contact us. We’ll review your plans and talk you through our thoughts and guide you through every step, from the initial planning stages right through to the final coat of paint, to make sure your renovation journey is as smooth as possible!
