E Furniture House Vanity Table
Vanities are often cast in a romantic view, like a luxury from the past. However, modern women can take full advantage of the conveniences of a vanity in their homes, as well. Often, bathrooms are cramped and shared by multiple family members. The space may not offer a place to apply makeup or fix your hair. A vanity can solve this issue, offering a quiet spot to put on a quick coat of mascara and prepare for the day.
What Makes a Vanity a Vanity?
A vanity can go by many different names including “vanity table,” “makeup table,” or “toilet table.” Vanities are typically use by women to prepare for the day. Historically, vanities were extremely functional pieces. Today, this can still ring true, giving the lady of the house a personal piece of furniture and quiet space of her own.
Like any type of furniture, vanities come in a wide range of styles, finishes, and sizes. Typically, vanity tables are smaller in size, generally measuring 28" to 56" long. Their shape can vary, and includes the traditional rectangle, a corner shape, or even a kidney shape.
Many vanities offer storage options, such as drawers. Some drawers may feature built-in organizers, possibly for jewelry, makeup, or grooming equipment. Some options even offer a fabric drape to conceal what is stored beneath, including grooming equipment.
A vanity without a mirror would not be very useful. Makeup vanities usually have a mirror attached to the back of the vanity, forming one unit. These mirrors may be simple or elaborately carved, and can even feature a hinge to allow viewing from different angles.
Finally, all vanities should have some sort of stool or chair. This seat will match the vanity in style and, often, in finish. These stools should be padded for comfort. A chair can certainly be used in place of a stool to offer more back support or appeal to a different sense of style.
Makeup vanity tables can come in a wide variety of materials, finishes, and styles. Vanity tables are usually designed to match a bedroom suit, and are often found in dark, polished woods like cherry, or may be painted.
You will also want a vanity that is topped with a smooth, moisture-resistant surface. In the event you spill something, like lotion or perfume, the vanity’s finish will be protected. Some vanities are available with a treated, matching wood or painted top, while others may feature a stone top.
Most vanity tables will appeal to a more traditional sense of style. The traditional Queen Anne style, for example, features curved legs, scalloped trim, and dark, rich woods. The Chelsea cherry makeup vanity table set, for example, will appeal to this sense of style. Featuring rich cherry wood, this vanity offers its user the visual appeal of curved wooden legs and the convenience of storage and hinged mirrors.
More modern vanity styles feature metal and glass. These metallic vanities work well with a more formal room, creating an opulent look. Painted wood can also be made to look more modern in style. For example, the Taylor white vanity desk set features sleek, modern lines and clean white color. The simplicity of this piece gives it a modern feel.
Finding the Right Vanity
When you are choosing the right vanity for your space, there are a few things you should consider. Firstly, ensure that the vanity will physically fit the space. Luckily, many vanities are small and will fit in tight spaces if need be. Next, consider how you will use the piece. If you have makeup and jewelry to store, search for options that offer storage space.
Vanities are a welcome addition to many bedroom spaces, offering the user her own space to prepare for the day. Just because a vanity is a symbol of luxury does not mean it has to be expensive.
