Vanities Buying Guide
Types of Vanities
Vanities really haven't changed much since they became popular in Victorian Era homes -- they still look like small desks, with drawers for toiletries and a mirror to check one's appearance. There are a few differences among today's vanities. Here are the types.
Many vanities have mirrors that attach to the back of the vanity. The mirror attaches with two wood bars that screw to the vanity and the mirror; some are visible in the gap between the mirror and the table surface, and others are hidden. The size of the mirror and the height it needs to be to frame your face determines where it's positioned.

Other vanities have separate mirrors meant to be hung on the wall. The mirror hangs from picture wire on a secure nail or hook.
The most common type of vanity is the sit-down desk. A small chair or stool pulls up to the kneehole, which is flanked by towers of drawers. The table surface may be smooth, or it may have raised portions to accommodate more drawers or cubbies. Because of all the liquids kept on a vanity, the top surface must be protected with a wipeable material such as laminate, glass, polished stone, mirror, or sealed wood. Some vanities have mirrors that pop up out of the table surface. Another version of the sit-down style resembles an armoire: a tall cabinet with doors that open to reveal the table surface and mirror.
The less-common stand-up style vanity is handy when your morning routine is rushed or you don't want to wrinkle your clothes sitting down. These may be towers, armoires, or raised traditional vanities with high table surfaces. The same features are included: a mirror, plenty of drawers, and a protected work surface.
When you are shopping for a vanity, look for these features.
The basic components of a vanity set include the vanity, a chair or stool sized for the kneehole, and a mirror.
There's a lot of extra razzle-dazzle available in a vanity, too. Some come with holes for cords, MP3-player docks, surge protectors, or charging stations. For practical reasons, you might want heat-resistant caddies for hot hair straighteners and curling irons. You might want a mirror framed in makeup lights, a magnifying mirror, or a mirror partitioned with angled sides for better viewing. Some vanities also come with locking felt-lined drawers for storing jewelry.
