Women just love having a designated space to try on different outfits and combinations of clothing – A.K.A. a dressing room. A dressing room needs to be a relaxing space providing a comfortable environment to get ready in. Design features that are most popular in this space are full length double or triple view mirrors, a plush dressing chair and custom shelving for personal items and accessories.

For those who tend to have more shoes than clothes, custom shoe storage is a natural choice. Items can be showcased in a multitude of ways from angled shelving, vertical racks, carousel shelves and the most popular of all, shoe cubes. Custom shoe storage is the perfect system for all your shoes to take center stage.

Vertical racks for hanging jewelry and other accessories, like long beaded necklaces, belts, scarves, and hats, are a favorite choice for women.
