Wardrobes and Dressing Rooms – What’s the Difference?

Mar 21, 2023

There are a few main differences between bedroom wardrobes and custom dressing rooms to consider, which we’ll cover below. At Flexi, we love designing and building wardrobes of all shapes and sizes and seeing the long-term value and potential they can add to a home.


Wardrobes will vary greatly in size, from smaller built-in wardrobes through to custom made walk-in wardrobe designs. As a general rule, dressing rooms require a lot more space than even walk-in wardrobes will.

A dressing room is designed to provide a luxurious and organised space for you to get ready for the day in style. It often contains furniture, including seating and custom cabinetry.


While a wardrobe is designed mostly for storage alone, dressing rooms offer greater functionality. This is due to the extra space, with dressing rooms allowing for easy movement when getting changed or ready for the day ahead. Larger walk-in wardrobes will also offer this functionality, but generally on a smaller scale.

Fixtures and Finishes

A dressing room offers far more scope for customisation and design than a standard wardrobe will. When it comes to a dressing room, the sky’s the limit when adding your own personal flair and charm. A walk-in wardrobe design also offers personalisation opportunities, but again, these will generally be on a smaller scale.


You guessed it if you picked dressing rooms as the more expensive options. With more space to design and customise, as well as more lighting, fixtures and other features to consider, dressing rooms are definitely towards the top end of a budget. If cost is an issue, you can create a stunning walk-in robe with many similar features to a dressing room.
