We went to ask the experts Lapeyre who showed us that even the small rooms are entitled to their closet …
What place do you need to install a dressing room?
Even the small rooms are entitled! This is not because the surface of the room is small that we can not arrange a dressing room. How to do it ? What place does it take?
We put the question to Nathalie, expert Lapeyre in carpentry: “First of all, you must determine the space that you can grant to your future dressing room”. If you do not have a dedicated room, it will take some ingenuity to build a dressing room in the room of your choice by optimizing its configuration.Under the eaves, for example, you can use the spaces under the slope to create a part of your dressing room. Otherwise, you can also use the nook of a room or use a wall only. Anyway, Nathalie reminds “that it is recommended to have 4m2 dressing for one person. But it is always possible to do with less if the space is perfectly optimized. ”
Better than a chest of drawers or a wardrobe, the custom dressing room must adapt to your space.
