The dressing table: the one item every bedroom needs?

The dressing table: the one item every bedroom needs?


Posted 22nd Jan 2016

Do you ever look around your room and just see jewellery and cosmetics everywhere? As you search fruitlessly for that one item you desperately need, just think: if you were to invest in a dressing table, you could wave this lack of organisation goodbye!

 

1 How much storage do you need?

 

Firstly consider exactly what storage requirements you will need from your dressing space. Do you have loads of jewellery and make-up? Then a dressing table with lots of drawers is the one for you, as the various compartments will help keep everything nice and organised.

 

2 Table placement

 

Where will you be positioning it? Near a window for natural light is ideal for applying make-up, but if you don't have a ready supply, make sure your table is near a plug socket so the lamp's cable would reach the plug.

3 Don't forget the mirror!

 

When you're measuring the area for your dressing table, be sure to incorporate the extra room that your mirror will take up too, as well as incorporating any extra storage space you'll need.
