Vanity dressing table designs for your home

Up your fashion and beauty game with these inspiring makeup vanity table designs for your bedroom.

Every morning you stand before it, primping yourself as you get ready to leave for work. When you return, you wash off all the makeup you applied in front of it. You groom yourself and nurture your body and mind every day — this piece of furniture is a staple in every bedroom. You might have guessed it — we are talking about a vanity table, also known as vanity.

This beloved piece of furniture has become such an integral part of our daily life that it’s shocking to know that the history of this furniture goes as far back as the Egyptian era! What we know of as a vanity table has been named differently in various cultures over the centuries. Some called it ‘Toylet Table’, ‘Lowboy’, ‘boudoirs’ and even ‘dutchess’.

Most of us confuse a vanity with a dresser despite the different names. So, let us put the confusion to rest while we are at it, shall we?

A ‘Vanity’ or ‘Vanity Table’ is a dressing table that is used to apply makeup, preen and coif hair. It is usually quite low and looks like a desk. It comes with drawers and one or multiple mirrors on top. A chair or a bench is kept in front of it. Whereas a ‘Dresser’ is bedroom furniture, quite similar to a chest of drawers. It often comes with a mirror attached to it.

If you are shopping for a vanity table for your home, the possibilities and varieties are endless. Whether you are looking for a simple style, a vanity table with a mirror, a

vanity table with lights like those often seen on movie sets or a space-saving style — we have you covered. Here are the top vanity table designs that will be perfect for your home.

Chic Vanity Dressing Table With A Wall-Mounted Decorative Mirror

For every urban bedroom, floor space is very important. This wall-mounted vanity table works so well in the bedroom shown in the image below. It perfectly blends in with the multipurpose bookcase cum study table. The decorative mirror works both ways as wall decor and a functional piece. The pouffe completes the look of the vanity. It does not take up additional floor space as it gets easily tucked away under the vanity table.

For vanity designs, the art deco style is timeless. But it may not work well in today’s modern homes. So, we gave this timeless style a contemporary twist. In the image below, we have pushed the vanity table and chair toward the corner of the room. The sleek round mirror and veneer finish vanity table perfectly blend in with the overall aesthetic of the bedroom.

Small Makeup Vanity Table With Drawer

A bedroom is incomplete without a vanity table. Don’t worry if you’re short on space. You can still incorporate a small makeup vanity table in the corner of your room. Take inspiration from the image below. We could easily fit in a small makeup vanity in a white and light veneer finish that blends with the side table and wardrobe. We also added a drawer to keep makeup and miscellaneous items organised and tucked away. But the highlight of this vanity table is the intricately designed mirror. It looks like it’s built in the back wooden panel that runs from floor to ceiling.

The Ultimate Space Saving Modern Vanity Table Set

If you have enough space in your bedroom, you can consider this kind of multipurpose vanity table design. As you can see in the images, the vanity has two parts and multiple storage options. There are three drawers, medicine cabinet-style hidden storage behind the double mirror and a full-size back panel that slides open. It has five additional racks and a built-in cloth iron stand. Furthermore, there is an ottoman that seamlessly blends in with the whole vanity. For someone who loves extra storage, this piece would be perfect.
