A beauty vanity is key in any woman’s home and in any interior design project. Whether it’s in your bedroom or dressing room, it’s key to have a lovely organised space to get ready in the mornings and evenings. You may have an extensive beauty collection or maybe just a few key pieces, either way it is important to have your products organised for you to access easily, why not even use your best items to display as accessories in your space. We take a look at some great beauty vanities and how to make the most out of them.
If your dressing room needs a vanity/dressing table then why not go for something simple and minimal. White will work well in any interior space but find a nice simple dressing table that will match the style of your room. A table with drawers will be perfect as it means you can tuck away all your make up so that your table doesn’t look cluttered when you’re not using it. You can then mount or stand a nice large mirror at the back of the table to do your make up in, team this with a smaller free-standing mirror for those close up needs. Then, depending on the size of your table, select some of your favourite items (maybe lipsticks in a stand) and have these on display just to add a bit of décor to your beauty table.
If you don’t have a dressing room or you’re a bit tight for space there are lots of things that you can try. Interior design is all about making the most of the space you’re working with. Why not set up a shelf with some drawers and a series of smaller shelves going up the wall to give you some more storage space. If you pair this with a small stool that can be tucked away under the shelves then you can be sure you won’t be taking up too much unnecessary space. Mount your mirror on the wall so you don’t take up any of the shelf space and store your favourite and most used items closest to you. This way you can have a beautiful vanity and a great space to get ready without taking up loads of space with a bulky vanity and chair to go with it.
On the other hand, if you do have lots of space, then make the most of it. The more makeup you have the more space you will need, so plan for that when choosing a vanity or makeup table. Go for something with more drawer space if you know you have a lot of items to store away. You can even find an unconventional table or desk to use as a vanity, just mount a mirror on the wall behind it and you’ve got exactly what you need. Then, if you want to make your table a statement piece in your space, try decorating with some trinkets or even a vase with flowers. Or even use the products you have to decorate. Maybe you have some products that came in a beautiful box or that have luxury packaging, these will be ideal when decorating a dressing table.
If the girly, neutral style isn’t for you then why not try something different. Try and choose items that will fit best with your space and your personal style. I love seeing quirky pieces in interiors, I think they are what makes interior design so special. Also, you don’t have to have gold everything to create a luxury space. Team together some unconventional pieces and see what you can come up with. Although you can purchase full vanity sets, it doesn’t mean you should. Find items that you like and that match your style and just team them together to make something that you love. As long as you have all the key elements, then you can create something new and unique that is perfect just for you. Interior design is all about experimenting and finding what is right for your own home.
Then you need to think about how you want to store your makeup. Organised makeup storage is key in a vanity table as it is important to know where all your products are, especially if you have a more extensive collection. It is also important to keep things organised for aesthetic reasons as the more organised your vanity is, the better it will look. There are loads of different make up storage solutions online that will help you organise your products either in drawers or to sit on top of your vanity. This will help you to sort your makeup and organise it just how you want it to be. This then can be used to decorate the top of your vanity too, as you can purchase some really beautiful makeup organisers.
If you don’t want to purchase make up organisers, or you just want to try some more unconventional storage options then you can always find things at home to use or purchase other items to store your makeup in. Small plant pots, cups or empty candle holders can be perfect for storing brushes or other makeup items especially if you want to use them for décor on your vanity. You can even try putting them into a tray along with your other favourite items to decorate the top of your vanity. This way you can keep these items in one place and easily move it all out the way if you need more space on your table.
I hope this has given you all some inspiration and ideas on how to create or make the most out of your vanities. Dressing tables can be a great way to show off your favourite products and to help you have a beautiful and organised space where you can get ready.
Until next time!
