CREATING A PERFECT VANITY AREA

Are you dreaming of a beautiful vanity area? It is time to stop, because now you can start planning and projecting. All you have do is to know and follow the essentials while creating your own personalised vanity space that perfectly fits your needs.

Checking furniture collections on the Internet can be very helpful as there are different furniture styles and designs you can take a look at and decide the best look for your vanity area. Once you have clear ideas, you can start shopping. You will find different online stores offering innovative, modern and high quality furniture designs you can choose from. One of them is Shop Mohd providing vanity tables, chairs and also lighting created by well-known brands.

But let us first see the essentials to creating a perfect vanity area.

The Space
What kind of space is available? Is it a room, a corner or just a small space within your bedroom? Knowing exactly how much space you have will help you establish the kind of furniture you can use as well as project every detail of the area. At the same time, considering all the sizes will help you determine how to decorate the area. One important advice: always double check the sizes.

The Mirror
Buying a mirror for the vanity means going for good quality. No excuses. You need a graceful mirror that will give you a true reflection, not a distorted one. It is important to have a mirror that is big enough for you to see everything and that reflects enough light. Depending on the kind of theme or style you like, you can choose a mirror with a suitable shape and frame. Remember, that the mirror is going to be the centre of the vanity area, so you need to consider your choice very well. You can also opt for a mirror that comes with lights in order to provide you perfect lighting when applying makeup.

The vanity table
When choosing a vanity table, make sure that it has the perfect height for you. Too low or too high can be uncomfortable. It should also be wide enough to accommodate various objects, without rendering the whole space cluttered or chaotic. Choose the colour and material that will match the style you want for your vanity area, in order to create a continuous and smooth flow in the whole space.

The seating
The chair you will use has to have a comfortable seat and the perfect height for you. If you have an ample space, you can also opt for placing one big or more armchairs or a comfortable chaise lounge which can double as a seating area when you have guests.

The storage
Obviously, it is essential to have enough storage space for keeping your makeup, brushes, tools, jewellery and other objects in an organised manner. There are vanity tables that come with pull out drawers. Otherwise, you can also use various holders and maybe create some on your own and give them a really personal touch.

The accessories
Making your vanity area your very own personal space needs special accessories to give it character and to boost the d├ęcor. Vases with fresh flowers on the vanity table will give it a more feminine touch, (your own) paintings or nicely framed photographs will give a focal point to the area and these are just two ideas to inspire you. There are no rules besides this one: do not limit your fantasy when creating your vanity.
