How to Style Bedroom Vanity Units

Posted by formed on 20 April 2018

Deciding what furniture you would like in your home is no small task – especially when it comes to your bedroom. For many of us, we want our bedrooms to have a focal point. This could be a television set or the bed itself, however, another popular feature is a vanity set. Bedroom vanity sets tend to be popular because they are highly customisable and can really dictate the overall look of your room. To find out some of the key considerations when styling your bedroom with a vanity unit, read on.


Set your budget

Given how much a vanity unit for your bedroom could vary, you will want to be keeping an eye on how much you are spending. Although your chair and table might seem to be at a modest price, that decadent mirror you’ve seen online may push you way over your spend limit.


Plan your space

Once you know how much you are willing to spend on your vanity set, it’s time to plan just where it’s going to sit in your room. As mentioned earlier, vanity units make a great focal point for your room and, as such, will look great situated against the middle of a wall.

Free-standing vanity units are perhaps a little more common, but they are much more difficult to get right if your bedroom is lacking in space. Here at Robes and Rails, we can offer bespoke vanity units which work seamlessly with your other bedroom furniture, so you can create a uniform aesthetic which makes the most out of the space available.


Form or function?

When choosing your vanity unit, you need to be realistic about your priorities. That is, do you merely want your unit to make a statement, or are you in dire need of some extra storage space? Whichever camp you fall into, make sure that you factor it in to your decision when the time comes.


What style?

For some, this is perhaps the most important question when it comes to choosing your vanity unit. Obviously, the answer to this question may well hinge on the current styling of your home, modern or traditional, but opting for something different may well give your bedroom unique twist you didn’t know you were looking for.

For those who are looking for something more traditional and old-fashioned, it would be a good idea to take a look at some ornate Victorian vanities with decorative carving and rustic detailing. If, on the other hand, you would like something a little less fussy, there are some great minimal vanities to choose from; a simple Scandinavian vanity unit can look sleek and modern without making too much noise.
