In order to create the best place to get ready each morning, a good vanity needs space. By keeping the center of your vanity clear, you can make sure you always have space to do your morning make-up. A heat-resistant pad can protect the surface of your vanity from any damage from straighteners and styling tools. And why not keep some space for a coaster for that glass of rose while you’re getting ready for a night out? Our vanities are all designed with deep storage drawers, so there’s plenty of room to keep your essentials hidden out of sight. And since they’re all constructed with dovetail joints, they won’t bow of break, no matter how many lipsticks you hide inside them…

Mirror inspiration

The finishing touch to any vanity is, of course, the mirror. And there are lots of ways you can style it! If you love the old Hollywood glamor, then a lit-mirror, like this one from @my_home_at_no3 on Instagram, can add that bit of wow factor.
