Why buy a vanity set?
Vanity sets can provide a specific area for getting ready for your day. Instead of standing at the bathroom counter, you can take a seat and take care of your hair, makeup, and self-care routines in your own dedicated space. Vanity sets also provide convenient storage space for items that would otherwise take up extra room on a bathroom counter or bedroom dresser.
What should you look for in a vanity set?
- Size: A more oversized vanity will provide plenty of work area. If your room is short on space, take accurate measurements before ordering to guarantee the table will fit.
- Storage: Some vanity sets have several small drawers and compartments to store and organize your cosmetics and tools, while others feature a few larger drawers. If you choose one with large drawers, you may consider adding a makeup drawer organizer for the smaller things.
- Style: Vanity sets are available in various styles, from classic to contemporary. Sets also come in various materials and colors, allowing you to choose the one that best represents your desired look and fits in with your decor.
- Lighting: Take into account the lighting in your makeup area. Some vanity sets have mirrors with lights included around the parameter. You may need to add a lamp or makeup light with other sets.
Where should you place your vanity set?
It may be best to place your vanity set in a cool, dry space such as a bedroom or even a spacious walk-in closet. This way, you may extend the life of your vanity set and the cosmetics, tools, and jewelry you may store. On the other hand, you may want to place your set in the bathroom so you can quickly get started with your makeup right out of the shower. However, remember that bathroom moisture may damage a wooden vanity set over time. If you decide to place your vanity set in a bathroom, ensure it’s well-ventilated to allow steam and other moisture to escape.
