Selecting the Right Bedroom Vanity

A bedroom vanity can be a beautiful as well as practical addition to a bedroom. You can add a vintage or retro touch when you want a bit of classic elegance in the bedroom. There are also plenty of vanities with a more modern feel that can still be just as elegant and sophisticated as a more vintage style. In any case, you have lots of choices in vanities to suit any type of style and preference for your bedroom.

For instance, many vanities come in sets that include stools. These stools tend to only have legs, but there are a few that are miniature chairs that can seat you comfortably with a back rest and arm rests. While stools are usually not made to accommodate storage spaces, they do tend to sit high enough for you to place items under them if necessary. Of course, stools found in a set will match the vanity in color and the material from which it was made.

Speaking of which, you should also consider the material when you are choosing a bedroom vanity. Many may prefer the look of wood because of its timeless and elegant feel. Dark cherry wood continues to be quite popular in this regard. However, walnut and oak tend to be popular wood styles. If you are looking for something a bit more contemporary, you can find vanities with mirrored surfaces. You may also consider a metal construction with an elegant finish such as nickel bronze or nickel satin.

The material from which the bedroom vanity is made may have other benefits or drawbacks. For instance, metal materials tend to be durable. However, you may have to consider how long a finish will last for these designs. Wood can also be durable, but it may also be more susceptible to scratches and other forms of damage that may mar the look of your vanity. Furthermore, you can find many unfinished designs from many different kinds of materials if you hope to customize the look of your vanity.

You should also consider other factors when it comes to the type of bedroom vanity you want. If you are willing to fore-go a matching stool, you just may find a vanity with a good amount of storage space. Some vanities double as chest of drawers when you want the elegant look of a vanity but the practicality of a dresser. You also need to look for other functions such as a space saving design when you make your choice.

Of course, the cost of the bedroom vanity will be a major factor in the choice you make. There are many attractive two-piece sets you can find for just around $100. There are also pricier options that can cost thousands of dollars but may or may not include a mirror or a stool or chair. Less expensive sets may also require some construction or other finishing touches on your part, so you have to consider this as you make your choice.
