Dressing Table

Dressing Table

A Dressing Table is as classically stylish as it is immensely practical. For someone with a lot of accessories – whether that means make-up, jewellery, ties or beauty products – finding the perfect space to store, showcase, and organise your items can be tricky.

Our makeup vanities offer storage and many come with built-in mirrors and lighting. Choose antique or modern styles - the perfect addition to your bedroom.

What's the difference between a Makeup Vanity and a Dressing Table?

Both dressing tables and vanities are fantastic pieces of furniture that provide a dedicated space for your beauty routine and getting ready. While the terms are often used interchangeably, there can be some subtle differences:

  • Focus: Vanity tables often emphasise the makeup application aspect, typically featuring a built-in mirror and sometimes even lighting specifically designed for applying makeup.
  • Storage: Dressing tables can be larger and offer more storage space for a wider range of items beyond makeup, such as jewellery, hair accessories, and other getting-ready essentials.

Ultimately, the best choice for you depends on your specific needs and preferences. Whether you're looking for a dedicated makeup station with a mirror or a more versatile dressing table with ample storage, we have a wide selection to choose from!

Where is the best place to put a Makeup Vanity?

Finding the perfect spot for your makeup vanity is all about functionality and creating a personalised beauty haven. Ideally, you want good lighting, either natural or adjustable, for flawless makeup application any time of day. The most popular choice is the bedroom, offering easy access to your wardrobe and creating a dedicated getting-ready zone. Bathrooms can work well too, but ensure there's ample space and good ventilation to prevent makeup damage from steam. If you have the luxury of a walk-in closet, it can be transformed into a beauty wonderland with space for your vanity, storage, and even a dressing area. Ultimately, the best spot depends on your daily routine. Choose a location that's convenient and sets the mood for a relaxing morning ritual.

Can I use a Makeup Vanity as a Desk?

Yes, you absolutely can use a makeup vanity as a desk! In fact, it can be a versatile and stylish solution, especially for smaller spaces. Here's why:

  • Similar Functionality: Both makeup vanity and a desk offer flat surfaces for working and storage space in drawers or shelves.
  • Space-Saving Potential: A makeup vanity often has a smaller footprint than traditional desks, making them ideal for apartments or cramped areas.
  • Multi-Purpose Use: You can easily switch between applying makeup and getting work done throughout the day.

Here are some things to consider to ensure a smooth transition:

  • Size: Make sure the makeup vanity's surface is large enough to comfortably accommodate your laptop, monitor (if using one), and other work essentials.
  • Chair Comfort: While a vanity stool might work for short bursts of work, consider using a comfortable desk chair for longer periods.
  • Storage Needs: A makeup vanity typically have smaller drawers compared to desks. If you need a lot of storage for office supplies, you might need additional organisers or shelving.
  • Lighting: A makeup vanity often have built-in lighting that might not be ideal for working long hours. Consider adding a desk lamp for better task lighting.

Overall, with a little planning, a makeup vanity can be a perfectly functional and stylish desk, especially for those with limited space.
