Wardrobes have been around as storage solutions for centuries. The original wardrobe design had two sections: one for hanging garments, the other for laying them flat. Wealthy households had wardrobes made out of wood with ornate decorations and elaborate detailing while the middle class made do with simple wooden wardrobes with no frills or flounces.
Today, wardrobes are no longer giant pieces of cumbersome furniture. As houses got smaller and tastes got more refined, wardrobes became the epitome of contemporary living, providing an elegant storage solution for clutter free living. Whether you are building a wardrobe from scratch or revamping an older piece, you need to make sure that the end result is a storage solution that makes living easier for you.
One of the ways in which interior designers have used wardrobes to help optimize space in a bedroom is by making it adaptable. A wardrobe with a dressing table inset into it, or a cosy seating area, or a study table that drops down from the side are all innovative ways in which designers are seeking to take wardrobe design to the next level.
Earlier, Indian homes were large and the bedrooms would contain a free standing almirah, a couple of dressers, maybe a stand-alone cupboard, as well as an ornate dressing table. These days, with smaller spaces to work in, it is necessary to use clever design ideas to optimize space. Incorporating a dressing table into your wardrobe unit is a great way to clear up floor space.
Take a look at these great ideas for a wardrobe designed with an inset dressing table.
In a sleek and modern master bedroom, a stylish acrylic wardrobe in a bold colour with metal knobs or handles will look great. An inset dressing table with a large silver framed mirror and an acrylic finished table top and drawers in a design similar to the wardrobe gives this interior a classic elegance.
A wall-to-wall wardrobe is a perfect design to fit in a dressing table easily. The central space between the two halves of the wardrobes is fitted with a large mirror in simple lines. The mirror frame is in a slightly darker colour than the wardrobe for a bit of accent. The table is in the same colour as the frame of the mirror and has a knee hole into which the dressing table stool can be hidden when not in use.
In a large bedroom, an ornate wall-to-wall wardrobe with barley twist detailing, curved corners and bevelled glass will look magnificent. The space between the two halves of the wardrobe holds a gorgeous dresser with the same barley twist detailing for the table legs and a bevelled glass mirror. These kinds of elaborate dressing table attached with wardrobe designs can make a bedroom look luxurious and opulent.
A large wardrobe fronted with a combination of glass and mirrors can double the look of a small space. The dressing table is in the centre of the two halves of the wardrobe and is made of a large ceiling to floor mirror with the table in front of it. The dressing table, the stool and everything in the room is reflected beautifully in the mirror making the space look larger than it is.
For a fun starter house, kitschy bedroom cupboard designs with dressing table, like geometric shapes or swirls, looks funky. Use startling colours or a colour gradation on the wardrobe doors and use one of the darker variations of the colour for the dressing table. Install a unique mirror in a wrought iron frame to complete this trendy look.
There is nothing as classic and as elegant as wooden furniture and that includes the wardrobe. A wall-to-wall wardrobe in warm wood with an inset dressing table in a complementing or contrasting wood will add grace to your bedroom interior. A three-sided mirror for the dressing table completes the stunning look of this wooden wardrobe with a wooden dressing table.
Sliding wardrobe design with a dressing table is such a space saver. The two halves of the wardrobe on both sides of the vanity has doors sliding away with the dressing table snuggled neatly in the centre. The dressing table can be open or it can be covered by the sliding doors when not in use to give a seamless look to the wall.
In a smallish room where a wall-to-wall wardrobe is not possible, a half wall wardrobe could be designed with the dressing table in the niche between the wall and the wardrobe. In this kind of wardrobe design, the wall offers space for extra shelves or to hang items on.
For a very small bedroom wardrobe, a corner cupboard with a dressing table can save space. The bare side of the wardrobe can be designed to be a vanity with the addition of a mirror and shelves below for cosmetics.
These days, men are equally interested in clothes, fashion, and hair and face products. Isn’t a dressing table as important for them? In this large master bedroom, the master bedroom wardrobe design with dressing table is a “his and hers” design with each half of the wardrobe having a dressing table inset into the wardrobe design, and customized for her and for him. This is something that todays’ metrosexual would enjoy.
Children are never too young for their own dressing table. A wardrobe in pretty pastel colours is accented by a dressing table in a darker shade of the same colour to give a teenager a room and a dressing table that they would love. Edge the mirror with bulb lights and they would enjoy having their friends over for make-up parties.
Do you have an antique Indian dressing table and don't know how to fit it into your bedroom wardrobe design? A great idea is to design a wardrobe with an empty space in the centre for the antique dressing table to fit in. In this design, the dressing table is the star and the rest of the room décor, including the wardrobe, is designed to complement the dressing table.
A monochrome bedroom always looks amazing. The black and white theme of the wardrobe is reflected in the drawers of the dresser and the frame of the mirror. The black and white upholstery on the stool and the carpet helps bring the design together beautifully and boldly.
