An interior room between the bedroom and en suite can be the perfect spot for a walk-in (or through) dressing room. If possible, choose fitted wardrobes with doors over open shelving to protect your clothes and accessories from bathroom steam.
When planning a bedroom, assessing your storage needs is the first place to start. Consider how much hanging, drawer and shelf space you’ll require, then allow extra so that clothes and other belongings aren’t crammed in.
Freestanding furniture is portable and allows you to create a more eclectic scheme, whereas built-in units can provide up to 30 per cent more storage space as they don’t leave any gaps. These can make the most of any awkward alcoves, or angled ceilings/low headroom in a loft bedroom. Bespoke bedroom designer Barbara Genda recommends incorporating pull-out cabinetry and deep drawers that tuck away storage neatly and use the depth in full.
