Dressing tables, or vanities, aren’t just for performers and actors anymore. Many people enjoy using a dressing table in their home to increase organisation and expand storage space. We think it’s important for a dressing table to feature a large mirror and have a comfortable stool as well. What traits will determine the best dressing table for you? Let’s find out!
The Woltu Vanity is our Editor’s choice for the best dressing table set. It has a minimalist design and comes in two easy to clean finishes – high gloss white or black wood.
We really like the Woltu because of its sleek and versatile look which can be used as a dressing table in your bedroom or a desk. It provides ample storage for all of your beauty products or office supplies with its four shelves and two drawers with 108x40x142cm (LxWxH) dimensions.
The Woltu also has an oversized mirror that measures 54.4cm x 67cm which are great for getting ready and checking your outfits, as well as brightening up the room. Woltu dressing tables are made with environmental grade E1 MDF wood.
The Woltu requires a lengthy setup and unfortunately, the mirror does not rotate. It may not be for you if you are looking for a super sturdy stool, either; the two-leg design of the Woltu stool makes it more prone to instability.
Our luxury choice for a dressing table set is brought to you by VASAGLE. It has an elegant look with a mixture of rounded and blunt edges and beautiful floral accents in the wood.
The Vasagle has got you covered when it comes to storage and mirror coverage. It features seven drawers, two brush slots, eight jewellery hooks on the back of the tri-fold mirror, and four open compartments to help you organize your beauty products with ease.
A sturdy cushioned stool accompanies the Vasagle dressing table. It is built with solid rubberwood and has a weight limit of 130kg. The table itself has solid pine legs with an MDF wood top with 90x40x148cm (LxWxH) dimensions.
We do not recommend the Vasagle for anyone who likes a wide tabletop or for kids because the surface scratches somewhat easily. Also, you may need to air out the paint smell upon arrival.
The Redstone White is our top value choice for a dressing table set. It has a simple design and comes in black or white finished MDF wood.
The Redstone has a large tabletop and can be used as either a small desk, a dressing table for your bedroom, or an entryway table. Its compact size makes it great for smaller spaces or for a kids room with 63x40x124cm (LxWxH) dimensions.
The Redstone dressing table has a no-frills design featuring one large drawer on the front and a good-sized mirror on top. It’s basic design also makes this dressing table easy to assemble.
However it is important to consider that the Redstone has sharp edges, is heavy due to the MDF construction, and has minimal storage. Additionally, its stool only has two legs making it less stable than other options.
Vasagle is back on our list with their Modern dressing table set. It has a chic look with clear handles and is available in either white or black.
The Vasagle Modern is our top choice for organisation because it features three deep drawers, two small drawers, and a removable organizer with six dividers for brushes and small storage items. The frameless mirror also features a 360-degree rotation meaning it can double as a full-length mirror.
The Modern dressing table is built with solid wood legs and a heavy MDF tabletop with 80x40x137.5cm (LxWxH) dimensions. The stool is sturdy and features a soft cushioned top. Assembly is also easy with the Modern dressing table; all you have to do is attach the mirror and the legs, everything else comes preassembled.
Be aware, the Vasagle Modern vanity table does have an initial paint smell that requires airing out, it is somewhat easily scratched, and has a narrow tabletop surface.
The Vida Designs Nishano is the best 4-drawer option on our list. It has a country chic look with curvy legs, clear handles, and is available in white.
The Nishano by Vida Designs has versatile storage options with 80 x 40 x 141 cm (LxWxH) dimensions. It features two small drawers, two large drawers, a shelf, and a cut-out compartment. The mirror can be rotated 360 degrees to achieve the perfect viewing angle.
Vida Designs constructed this dressing table set out of heavy MDF wood with a paint finish. To clean, simply wipe with a dry cloth.
Unfortunately, the Nishano is not for anyone seeking a cushioned stool or a quick and easy assembly.
Songmics is next up on our best dressing tables list. It has a simple classic look and comes in a painted white finish.
The Songmics dressing table is highly versatile and can easily be used as a desk or hallway table as well. While it may have a basic, compact design, the Songmics dressing table still provides ample storage with its three open compartments, two small drawers, and two large drawers with 80x40x93cm (LxWxH) dimensions.
This bedroom dressing table is made with environmental grade E1 MDF wood which has the least amount of chemicals used during creation. It is also easy to assemble and features curved legs for a stylized look.
If you are looking for a dressing table that comes with a matching stool then this one is not for you. What’s more, it doesn’t come with a built-in mirror either, however, many people have their own mirrors to pair.
The Meerveil dressing table and stool set have a classic look with curved legs and carved cut-out embellishments. It is available in white.
The Meerveil dressing table would make a great addition to your bedroom furniture. It features a large tri-fold mirror so you can easily get a 360-degree view while getting ready, as well as a good amount of storage. It has two small drawers and two large drawers with 90x40x146cm (LxWxH) dimensions.
This dressing table is made with environmental grade MDF wood and is easy to assemble at home. It has a sturdy, cushioned stool with a flame retardant fabric as an added safety measure. In addition, the Meerveil comes with non-slip pads to glue on the bottom of the chair and table legs to prevent floor damage.
Unfortunately, the Meerveil is not good for small spaces due to its larger size. Additionally, it only comes in one colour, and there are reports of it scratching easily.
The Tukailai dressing table and stool set in next up on our best-of list. It has a unique corner design with a minimalist look and comes in white.
This unique piece of bedroom furniture is designed for use in a corner and as a result, gives you room to stretch out your legs underneath. It expands usable surface and storage space while minimizing the actual amount of bedroom floor space needed. For storage, this dressing table features five extra-large drawers, a large shelf, and two smaller shelves attached to the mirror with 114x61x141cm (LxWxH) dimensions.
The Tukailai dressing table is constructed using extra-thick 25mm MDF wood. It features a secured explosion-proof tri-fold mirror that is highly durable and resists scratching.
The Tukailai dressing table is only for you if your ideal location for use is in a corner. Also, the mirror does not adjust even though it is tri-fold and the stool only has two legs making it less stable.
The Vanimeu Oak Scandinavian is the best fold away dressing table set on our list. This painted oak dressing table has a Scandinavian look that would look great in your bedroom or any room in the house for that matter. Most of the wood is natural but the drawer fronts are painted white.
The Oak Scandinavian has two tabletop surfaces, a large drawer, a medium drawer, and a large compartment with dividers for organising smaller items with 80 x 40 x 75 cm (LxWxH) dimensions. The mirror is attached to the underside of the main tabletop and easily folds up or down to enhance versatility and create a more clean, compact look.
The Vanimeu dressing table is constructed out of high-quality wood throughout. The stool has a slight cushion but maintains a minimalist look.
Be aware, the Vanimeu dressing table has unfinished legs, a low vanity mirror, and we wish the connection between the two sides was a bit sturdier but overall it still makes a great statement piece for your home.
We chose the Youke dressing table set for our top 10 because of its elegant look and advanced features. It is available in white.
This stylish vanity table could easily become the new focal point of your bedroom. It has a 360-degree rotating mirror that features an LED light ring around the perimeter with three varying brightness levels. A USB port behind the mirror allows easy power adaption to function the LED light. It also has two large drawers, four small drawers, and an open compartment with dividers on the table’s surface with 106.5 x 51 x 40.5 cmcm (LxWxH) dimensions.
The Youke is constructed using a mix of solid wood and MDF wood that features stylish carved cut-outs and detailed legs. This classy dressing table also has an extra soft, sturdy cushioned stool.
The Youke dressing table is not good for a small space and is rather heavy, making it hard to move alone. There are also reports of the paint finish easily being blemished.
The following sections explain how we chose the best dressing tables for our list and better explains which traits are important and why.
How do you plan on using your new dressing table? Will you use it for storing your beauty products? If so, storage and organisation will be key traits to look out for when searching for a new vanity. If you also want to use your new dressing table as a desk, as many people do, you will probably want to prioritize a larger tabletop in addition to lots of storage. Or, maybe you want to look for smaller dressing tables that would accommodate a child. Whatever your intent, we are sure you can find something you like.
The materials used to construct a dressing table can go a long way in determining the quality and durability of a product overall. Solid wood is always a good choice when it comes to extending durability in furniture but thick MDF wood can also be fairly durable.
While most of the dressing tables on our list can easily be assembled at home, some are more difficult than others or require a bigger time investment on your part. Would a dressing table that comes mostly preassembled be a big perk for you? Or do you enjoy assembling furniture?
One of the main things people hope to gain when buying a new dressing table is extra storage space. That’s why almost all of the dressing tables on our list have a lot of storage that comes in all different shapes and sizes. We love being super organised, especially in our bedroom, that’s why our favourite dressing tables have a combination of storage options that include drawers, shelves, brush holders, and open compartments with dividers.
How much space you have in your home for a dressing table set should factor heavily into your final decision. Unless of course, you have an entire dressing room and not just a corner or space in your bedroom. Make sure to measure out how much space you have in order to narrow down your search before getting started.
For most, a mirror is a key trait when choosing dressing tables. However, if you already have a mirror in mind you may want to buy a vanity without one attached. We think the best dressing tables with a mirror will also be able to rotate or fold to give you a customized view.
A dressing table’s appearance is also important. Is your style more elegant, country-chic, or minimalist? Whatever your response, there are many beautiful dressing tables in a wide variety of styles so you won’t have to sacrifice functionality to find something that you really like.
However, it is important to know that stability can also be increased or decreased depending on the style of legs on a stool or table. We think four legs are best for stools and dressing tables. That’s because having four legs instead of two wide legs on the base can decrease potential wobble and help maintain a level surface as well.
Now that you know how to choose the best dressing table for you, let’s quickly review our Editor’s choice.
We love the Woltu Vanity dressing table because it has a stylish minimalist design and provides excellent quality. The Woltu is available in either a high gloss white or black wood, has an oversized mirror and can double as a desk. We love that it is easy to clean, and of course, provides ample storage.
Just because we love the Woltu dressing table doesn’t mean you will. Is it the best option on our list for you? Or, would one of the other dressing tables on our list look better in your bedroom?
