Apply Marie Kondo’s Folding Technique There’s no denying that the craze of tidying, started by Marie Kondo is a genius way to make each item of clothing accessible and neat. The basic of this folding technique is to fold clothes, towels, and sheets so that they can stand vertically in drawers rather than stack one on top of the other. It makes your clothes visible from above and avoid a tangle of clothes created while you picked them up. Moreover, MariKon techniques prevent your clothes at the bottom being ignored and forgotten. Here is one the MariKon folding jeans techniques: First, lay the trousers, zip down, on a flat surface and fold them in half, lengthways. Now take the bottom of the trouser legs and fold them towards the top so that the hems are level with the top of the back pocket. Next, fold in thirds. Done, now your jeans should be able to stand up on their own. 3. Consider improving your Lighting management Lighting is a key in your dressing room. Thinking your lighting design carefully will enable you to make the most of your space. The success key to get the dressing room lighting right is to introduce layers of light. One, consider adding the glamour of a pendant in the centre of your dressing room. This creates a focus and an alternative source of light to balance the directional downlights. Two, create interest with lamps on both sides of dressing table. This will provide a soft intermediate light. Third, use ceiling lights which are directed at the cupboards. This will create an intimate space in the dressing room. Fourth, for the open shelves in the dressing room, use LED concealed either at the front or the back of the joinery. This helps you differentiate colours of the clothes and increase the feeling of height in the room. 2. Make Open Closet System If you already have a separate room for dressing, you have to opt for a walk-in dressing room with open shelves. With shelves, drawer pedestals, and clothing rods, this room will give you a complete storage solution. First, the shelves are mounted to the wall with a vertical profile structure and second, it comes with LED lighting along the entire profile height. If you adopt this idea, you can keep your bare back wall, or, if you want to improvise it, you can cover it with white glass. White glass as in this case amplifies and reflects the LED light and thus provides a much lighter atmosphere and is also very easy to clean. Not only this idea would make your garments more accessible but also you can display your shoes nicely. While at the same time, you put away smaller items, such as belts, scarves and underwear, in a container storage. Lastly number 1.
