Vanities, you know those small table-cum-cabinets with the mirror on top, and benches or chairs to match, are indispensable to womens bedrooms. It is the place where you would dress, the place where you could admire and enhance your beauty, the place that belongs to you and nobody else. It serves to hold your cosmetics, your brushes and combs, and other essential and personal possessions. It gives you the mirror to examine yourself and help you dress. It also gives you the place where you can sit and go into reveries or dreams while you brush your hair, if you so wish. Both functionally as well as emotionally, not having bedroom vanities would be a loss.
A Different Style for Everyone While the basic design of a bedroom vanity is a table with a mirror and table, there are many variations on the design. There are more elaborate vanities, with lots of storage space, a big mirror and carved wooden design. Since a bedroom vanity is an old fashioned piece of furniture wood vanities are popular, as it creates a more classic look. For those that prefer a contemporary look, but like the convenience of a bedroom vanity, there are more understated designs available. Basic glass tables with a stool and mirror are popular, or there are also vanities made out of a colored metal.
Among decorative vanities you could go for traditional wood sets, Victorian pieces, or metal or wrought iron pieces. Traditional style wood sets would be somewhere in the middle between purely functional and highly decorative. They will have elegant decorations and designs but wont have too detailed intricacies and additives. Victorian pieces and wrought iron sets would be more delicately carved and ornate. These are expensive and would be heavy as well. Metal sets would be inexpensive and light weight and yet elegant. They would serve well in small bedrooms where you cannot have more ornate or heavy pieces.
Bedroom vanities are typically not very wide, and so do not take up much space in the room. In fact, because of the reflection from the mirror, they can create the illusion that the room is bigger than it is. Often they are not just basic mirrors either. There is the option to purchase a vanity with a dual sided mirror; one side that magnifies and one normal side. Some vanities come with more than one mirror, so that they can be angled to show three sides of the face. There are also some vanities that have built in lighting, so that one has a better view of their face to apply makeup with.
A bedroom vanity is very different from a bathroom vanity. It is typically a table that can be sat at with a mirror. Bedroom vanities, also known as makeup tables, are ideal for a woman or teenage girl because they are an excellent way to do your makeup. Bathroom vanities are also very esthetically appealing and are an excellent addition to any bedroom.
Of course, the cost of the bedroom vanity will be a major factor in the choice you make. There are many attractive two-piece sets you can find for just around $100. There are also pricier options that can cost thousands of dollars but may or may not include a mirror or a stool or chair. Less expensive sets may also require some construction or other finishing touches on your part, so you have to consider this as you make your choice.
