A bedroom vanity can be a beautiful as well as practical addition to a bedroom. You can add a vintage or retro touch when you want a bit of classic elegance in the bedroom. There are also plenty of vanities with a more modern feel that can still be just as elegant and sophisticated as a more vintage style. In any case, you have lots of choices in vanities to suit any type of style and preference for your bedroom.
Of course, the focal point of any bedroom is the bed. Many bedroom furniture sets give you a choice of what type of bed you want. From contemporary to traditional, sleigh beds are a popular type of bed because of their graceful lines, soft curves and warm, inviting appearance. Platform beds are an ideal way to decorate a bedroom that is short on floor space, because many types of platform beds include storage options that will ultimately give you more options while increasing the rooms functionality.
Speaking of which, you should also consider the material when you are choosing a bedroom vanity. Many may prefer the look of wood because of its timeless and elegant feel. Dark cherry wood continues to be quite popular in this regard. However, walnut and oak tend to be popular wood styles. If you are looking for something a bit more contemporary, you can find vanities with mirrored surfaces. You may also consider a metal construction with an elegant finish such as nickel bronze or nickel satin.
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.
