How to Choose a Perfect Dressing Table

Dressing tables used to have some aristocracy attached to them. They are also known as vanity tables for the same reason. In the old days, royal women were fond of spending considerable time near a dressing table. Gradually, the dressing tables found their place in every household. Now, it's an essential furniture for every household. This piece of furniture is a nice way to add some glamour into an otherwise dull bedroom. It's like your close companion with whom you spend some time everyday. You need it to fix yourself early in the morning without much clutter or fuss.

If you are looking for great vanity tables, you should keep two things in mind - to suit your taste and meet all the functionality.

Choosing a Perfect Piece

Three things that come first while choosing such a table are: condition of your bedroom, your choice of design, and of course, your budget.

The Space

A dressing table generally finds its place in the bedroom of any general household, but some are installed in a separate dressing room. And the equation changes there; the type of furniture for an exclusive dressing room and a bedroom are somewhat different. Next comes space. Queen Victoria's dressing table, though very elegant, you can't place it to fit in a small space such as a modern apartment. Availability of space and the location is very important for choosing a dressing table. You have to look for the ones that are not very large in size or very elaborate, yet have good finish and functions.

The Condition

If you are going for a luxurious (and expensive) one, you should expect durability of the same. So, the choice of material is very important as the heating and moisture of the bedroom affect the durability of any furniture. Room climate does affect the color, finish and strength of the furniture in the long run. In addition to that, the existing decor of the bedroom plays a role in choosing one type of table over the other. The background and color of your bedroom must match with that of the furniture. Because it's not wise to buy a dressing table first, and then change the home around it. Changing the home is definitely more expensive than changing a piece of furniture.

The Design

By design, here, we'll consider the style, shape, size, color and finish, though design as such doesn't fit to any solid definition. It's as much liquid as the ever-changing trends in fashion. Every design cannot match your requirements. The console, the mirror, the drawers, the lift-up lids, the pedestal and other accessories, all have something special about them - in terms of design. You have to pick one from multitude available types. The material and finish are the final considerations.
