Decorating With Vanity Tables

Remember when women owned frilly vanity tables with upholstered stools and ornate mirrors? Well nothing has changed. Women are still painting, primping, poufing and perfecting their look while sitting at their beautiful mirrored vanities.

The vanity table serves as a kind of sanctuary for a woman where she can feel free and at ease to play and experiment with all of the accessories that help to make her look more beautiful. In fact, in front of a makeup mirror, seated at her dressing table, a woman can totally transform herself.

Today, many women still  look for stylish and elegant vanities. Some of the popular ones are antique inspired, modern and sleek, distressed, and custom-built vanities that meet specific bathroom requirements. There is one out there with your name on it!

It starts when we are young, this love affair with the vanity.
Little girls beg for small pink or white bedroom vanities to make them feel like princesses or make them feel grown up

Makeup vanity tables have also been a traditional part of a woman's boudoir area and even today there is a wonderful collection of makeup vanity tables to choose from.


Every woman needs a private time for themselves, especially during the morning and night. They need to have their own personal oasis where they can focus on themselves.

Bathroom vanity stools are one of the most vital parts of a bathroom and having the right designed stool is critical to any bathroom.

For those with small space there are small makeup vanity tables with stools that can easily fit into a bedroom.

If you have a lot of space to work with  a larger size with drawers and storage is a great option.

A great idea for a vanity wall. It's always fun to have something to collect.
