A Bedroom Vanity: Simply Beautiful
They may seem to be a holdover from simpler, more luxurious times, but bedroom vanities are making a big comeback in the midst of our hectic modern world. Couples getting ready for work often find that a bedroom vanity is a way to keep them from stumbling over one another in the rush to get ready and get out the door. But just because they make sense, doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful. The right piece will be an attractive addition to your bedroom.
Bedroom Vanity Styles
- Art deco is a style that harkens back to the 1920s and 30s. It uses bold primary colors, geometrical shapes, and steel and plastics. An Art Deco style vanity will bring you back to the days of Jay Gatsby and the flappers.
Bedroom Vanity Materials
Vanities come in a variety of materials, but the best are made of sturdy metal or hardwood such as cherry or mahogany. In metal vanities, look for intricate iron scroll work and a powder coat for a durable finish. In wood, hand-carved construction is a mark of quality.

Bedroom Vanity Features
The devil is in the details, and so is the value. Here are some of the features of a quality bedroom vanity:
- Jewelry Armoires have small drawers (often fabric-lined) that will protect your valuables. Some feature a side door that will open to reveal hooks for your necklaces.
- Stools and benches are a great alternative to the traditional chair. Often they will come with the vanity set and enhance the beauty of the piece, as well.
- Mirrors come in as great a variety as there are vanity designs. Often they come with the stand, but mixing and matching is a perfect way to customize.
With so many options, it shouldn’t take long to find the bedroom vanity that will both beautify your home and simplify your life.
