This dressing room makeover is worthy of an Oscar, with lashings of A-lister sparkle and a roomy make-up area that we reckon any celeb would be happy to have in their home.
When Mel Hamblett was home hunting it was the large attic master bedroom that sold her on her house, however, its awkward shape made it difficult to work with. ‘It had tons of space,’ says Mel, ‘but when we moved in I struggled to make it work with my existing furniture, because of the sloped ceilings.’
Mel decided to solve the problem by transforming the sloped ceiling alcove into a stunning dressing room area, which she documented on her Instagram account @awholenewbuild.

The sloping ceilings made it awkward to have any tall storage, so Mel used some small cheap canvas wardrobes to begin with, while she saved up for fitted designs.
‘Eventually we had a local independent company fit wardrobes and storage cupboards,’ says Mel. ‘They created them from MDF, which we painted ourselves to save money.’
Here they are having just been built – and you can see how they fit the space perfectly.
