Makeup vanity design must-haves?

Hi everyone,


We're remodeling our house and turning a spare bedroom into a walk-in closet.  The closet in that room will be become my makeup vanity area.  We removed the doors from the closet.


The closet is only half as deep as a regular closet, as the other half was taken up by the adjoining room's remodel.


I think it is the perfect size for a counter top with a vanity chair in front.  I can put several shelves on the walls on each side to hold makeup palettes, etc.  And, of course, good mirrors and lighting!


What would you do with such a space?  Looking for ideas, either in the design of it, what should be in a vanity, or how would you paint/decorate it?  I am excited about it!

I am looking on the IKEA site now and found the Alex drawer units.  Which table top did you get for it?  Also, what about those drawers on top of the table? Many Thanks! Smiley Happy

Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?

I like that you can pull those top drawers out without having to back up.. nice!  Yay Ikea Smiley Happy 

Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?

I have a walk in closet as well. It's small but i'd like a little space for me.

Do corner vanities exist? lol

Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?

This isn't as practical as I'd like, but omg, pretty!


I'm seriously dying for a real vanity set-up.



Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?



This is so insanely beautiful that I just stared longingly at it and all its little beautiful details for the last 5 minutes.

Oh my gosh. This is so beautiful. The way the sun shines through the window. Wow!!!  I would LOVE to have this setup. Sun included. Thanks for sharing. 

Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?

I was looking at that, but it's way too clunky. What I really wanted was the Chelsea Vanity I just didn't think it was worth the price. PB is nice, but all our pieces from them are not holding up as well as our Restoration Hardware. If RH had an elegant vanity that had space I would be all over that! 

Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?

I like the tri-fold mirror on this one.  One of my aunts had a tri-fold mirror put in their bathroom when they built their house. It was awesome. 

Re: Makeup vanity design must-haves?

This is lovely! And quite a bit more practical than the one I posted. (I wouldn't want to own that one so much as I like gazing at the picture. Soooo pretty!)


Love the mirror, all the drawers, and that it has plenty of desktop space.


On the downside, practicality-wise, all that lovely white would not stay white for very long. ... Why are so many vanities white, anyway? O.o
