Hiring an interior design company in Singapore that has sufficient experience in retail and knowledge about what customers are looking for will be one of the essentials when it comes to creating the perfect dressing room.
Regardless of the specific goal, the number one rule to be followed is keep your dressing room clean and uncluttered. People will be changing clothes in there and they will need enough space to get the job done. If an item doesn’t have a certain function, it doesn’t belong in the dressing room.
The next important rule focuses on neutral light.
The light should work together with the mirrors to create the most flattering vision for the person trying on the clothes. If it’s too dim or the tone is cold, chances are the store visitors will not like what they see.
Many stores have already moved towards innovative and energy-efficient design with motion-activated lights for the dressing room. This is definitely a choice to consider because the more expensive bulbs will pay themselves off pretty quickly in this high traffic area.
Lights should also be functional and positioned strategically. A light behind or in front of the person looking at themselves in the mirror is obviously ill-conceived. People will get distracted so you should definitely experiment with more practical placement. Experimenting with different light bulbs before choosing the ones that will be everywhere is also a good idea.
To make the dressing room stand out, you have to ensure both privacy and comfort. The standard curtains that appear in most stores tend to look quite cheap, especially after they’ve been used for some time. A door or a panel that separates this intimate space from the rest of the store will be much better. The appearance will be easy to maintain impeccable – cleaning a door or adding a fresh coat of paint will rejuvenate the appearance of the dressing room immediately.
When it comes to comfort, interior designers can recommend a whole host of solutions. A small branded stool in the booth is a good idea. It’s also a good idea to have a small carpet or a rug. When trying on pants or skirts, people will have to take their shoes off. Standing in socks or bare feet on the naked ground is not the most comfortable experience. Hooks and hangers are obvious essentials, and the more you have inside the dressing room, the better.
Finally, consider investing in adjustable features. People like to personalise their spaces, even if they’ll be spending five minutes there. Mirrors that can be moved to change the angle, lights that can be made dimmer or brighter and even the chance to put on some music will get people interacting with their current environment.
