Do You Need a Dressing Table and Why?

It sometimes feels like such an unessential item of furniture, doesn’t it? You can put your make-up on in the bathroom after all. And it seems so old-fashioned too. And yet there are quite a few good reasons to invest in a dressing table. Some of them might surprise you. 

Get personal space that nobody else is allowed to use

This can be particularly gratifying in a busy family home. Kids have their bedrooms, but parents often don’t have individual space. A dressing table can become just that. A rushed task of getting ready will become more relaxing one, because it gets done in its own dedicated space. 

Store all your jewellery, make up and perfume in one place

Instead of rummaging through bathroom cupboards and baskets, various shelves, console table and bowls in the hall and living room, you will be able to return those items to their rightful place. And they are much more likely to stay there, because it’s where they are actually used. 

You will be less likely to lose things

Having dedicated storage for all those bits and bobs will mean that you are much less likely to lose them. This particularly applies to jewellery, hair clips and bobbles and other small items. But it’s quite surprising how easy it’s to misplace even larger items like hair driers or make up palettes… And not losing things is less wasteful and saves money on replacements. We are saying it in case you need to financially justify a purchase of a dressing table -- not to mention avoiding stress when trying to find things at the last minute. 

Keep your bedroom tidy

Many bedrooms have enough space yet it is not used well enough and everything ends up in heaps on the floor or on one overworked chair and top of the chest of drawers. A decent-sized dressing table will definitely help you to keep your bedroom tidy. 

Dressing tables come in all sizes and shapes

That’s right, you don’t have to get one of those old-fashioned ornate princess ones. Although there is no reason why not, if it matches your personality and your style. From elaborate romantic designs, to simple and minimalist ones, there is a dressing table that will suit your style. And if space is at a premium, a wall-mounted mirror with a floating shelf with a few drawers might work best for you (and still provide you with storage space and a focus for all your getting-ready activities). A well-chosen dressing table will also complete and complement the look of your bedroom. 

It’s not just for getting ready

If you are lucky enough to have room for a larger dressing table, you will be able to use it as a bureau and a writing desk too. In fact, a small desk with a mirror hanged above it on the wall makes for a great contemporary dressing table. Who knows, maybe it will even inspire you to keep a daily journal?
