All of us want to have a separate room for all our shoes, clothes, and accessories. But considering the small size of most apartments this sounds more like a dream. However, a nice science called ergonomics can help us.
WeGoRo posts step-by-step instructions which can become an indispensable aid in building a compact, comfortable, and capacious dressing room in your apartment.
It’s important to know for sure what you’re going to keep in your dressing room:
First of all, you’d better get rid of unnecessary things. Then take all the clothes you’re going to wear and organize them by the method of storage.
1. Vertical space organization. Closet rods, shelf support brackets, and hangers are used to store:
2. Drawers are perfect for storing:
3. Shelves are required for storing shoes.
You can choose horizontal or vertical space organization. In the second case, it’s better to place the stuff you’re wearing this season at eye level. The rest, above or below. The shelves’ heights should be 20cm for summer footwear and 40-50cm for winter and autumn footwear.
4. The upper shelf. You can place your seasonal or rarely used stuff here, as well as your bedding.
Look at your clothes and footwear and try to imagine how many zones you’ll need and what size they should be. To see the whole picture and understand your own needs better, you can draw a simple scheme of your dressing room divided into zones. Don’t forget to take into account the things that you’re going to buy in the near future.
