Mad About Mid Century Modern
If getting ready in the morning feels more like a chore than a treat, it’s time to upgrade your dressing table. We think your daily routine will be instantly improved with the addition of a sleek new dressing table with storage to fit all your day-to-day essentials.
Styling your dressing table and creating a curated look is also a great way of adding personality to your bedroom or dressing room (lucky you). Dressing table mirrors also help to brighten your room by reflecting light and adding depth.
What size dressing table should I buy?
If you have a lot of floor space to fill, invest in a large dressing table. Due to their multifunctional nature, a large design can work for a whole host of uses aside from being the spot where you get ready in the morning. A sizeable dressing table with storage – in particular concealed drawers or shelves – helps to keep your bedroom clutter free.
Small dressing tables can be ultra-functional too, doubling as petite writing desks and the perfect spot to work from home. To save space, dressing table stools can be tucked neatly underneath to keep valuable floor space clear.
Alternatively, corner dressing tables are brilliant space-savers, filling empty corners to make the most of otherwise unused spaces.
Where should I put a dressing table?
When it comes to choosing a location for your dressing table, light is everything, both in terms of getting ready, as well as how you can maximise the feeling of space in your bedroom.
‘The most important considerations when choosing the perfect dressing table are the lighting and space available in your bedroom or dressing area,’ explains Dimitri Pappas, Managing Director at My Furniture. ‘Can you position your dressing table in front of the window to maximise natural light on your face? If not, position a mirror to reflect the light back at you. Using mirrored dressing tables reflect the light and add an extra feeling of space to the room.’
How should I style my dressing table?
Dressing tables are not only functional pieces of bedroom furniture, but a great place to show off your personality, too.
Ally Dowsing-Reynolds, CEO at home décor brand Dowsing & Reynolds, suggests: ‘Style an uneven assortment of smaller items alongside tall or oversized items to create height and layers. Bedside books that reflect your interests alongside meaningful sculptures and your favourite perfume bottles make great focal points.
‘Add ambience and pockets of light with table or mirror lamps, and repeat textures, shapes and colours around the room. A piece on your dresser could be the same texture and material as your bed to add consistency, for example. But don’t be afraid to add the unexpected too – a colour that clashes or a pattern that stands out, these add interest.’
How do I choose a dressing table mirror?
You can have a dressing table without a mirror – but you’d be missing out on a great opportunity when it comes to getting ready. Kate Salmon, Head of Homeware buying at Oliver Bonas, says: ‘Transform any table into a free-standing vanity with a dressing table mirror. Choose from simple round designs for a minimalist look or channel some old-school glamour with an elegant tri-fold mirror. Or, if you have a small space a dressing table mirror with jewellery box storage will maximise your storage.’
