A bedroom vanity, also known as a vanity table or dressing table, is a bedroom workspace and storage solution frequently used as an area to apply makeup and keep beauty supplies. Bedroom vanity tables usually come in one of two distinct styles: a simple worktable, commonly with drawer storage and an attached mirror above it, or a workspace that opens on the top to reveal interior storage and a fold up mirror. Vanity sets may also come with a matching stool or bench in addition to the main piece of furniture, which can help keep the style of your furniture set cohesive. However, if you’re looking to add a more eclectic feel to your décor, you can always hand-pick a coordinating tufted ottoman, bench, or pouf to give your dressing space a more luxurious touch.
When choosing the best type of vanity table for you and your home, it can help to consider factors such as how much room you have to work with and how much storage space you need. The proportions of your space will determine what size of vanity will work best in it. These pieces come in an array of sizes from a small table just big enough for a stool to scoot up against, to a broader piece that has multiple tiers of storage and a couple different mirrors. But the width of the vanity doesn’t necessarily determine its storage space - even narrow vanities can offer multiple drawers or shelves, so keep that in mind when considering different options.
Once you’ve decided on the type and size of your table, it’s time to select they style - and there is certainly no shortage of choices. These pieces come in designs ranging from traditional French vanities with scrollwork details or angular craftsman pieces with honey hued finishes, to sleek and modern glass vanities. So no matter what style your space is, there are variations that can complement it perfectly.
