When choosing a vanity table, there are several options which are important to consider before your purchase. The first is construction. If you are looking for a wooden vanity table, be sure that the item is made of solid wood, and not particle board. Read reviews about the specific model you are considering to find out how well-built the furniture is, and find out how easy or difficult it is to assemble.
Makeup Vanity Table - Finishing Details
There are many fine details that optionally available depending on the model of the vanity you select. There are a wide variety of wood finishes, from natural oak and maple, to stained mahogany or cherry. Of course there are popular colors of painted vanities like black, white, and pink.
You also want to make sure that there are enough drawers for your necessities. Some vanities come with no drawers, and only a small amount of table space. Others come with so many drawers that there is no room for your chair to pull under the table.
Consider whether or not you want a skirted makeup table, or one with more open room under it. Also, think about who the makeup vanity table is for...if it is for a child or an adult. Some of the children's tables (also called "princess vanity tables") are quite small, and young girls can outgrow them rather quickly.
Makeup Vanity Table Lighting
Some vanities come with lighted mirrors. This can be as simple as a small light above the mirror to large globe bulbs surrounding the mirror in the style of a hollywood makeup artist's table. Be sure to select a model that has sufficient lighting for your room, or space to add a makeup light if the lighting is not built-in.
Vanity Table Chairs
The final detail you want to consider is whether or not the vanity comes with a matching chair or stool. It is easy to forget when ordering, and it can be quite disappointing to put a mis-matched chair with your beautiful new makeup vanity table.
