This vanity is simple and straightforward which is reflected in its price. It rings up at the lower end of our list’s prices, so it won’t break your beauty bank.

10 amazing LED light flanking the oversized mirror
Ample storage space on top of the vanity
Strong storage drawer with metal supports and stopper
Sturdy but not made of real wood.
We are absolutely nuts over this vanity. It’s definitely a departure from the typical designs that we have featured on this list, but we couldn’t think of a better way to round our Top 10 out.
Super Easy to Assemble
This particular vanity is much more straightforward in design, and therefore, easier to assemble. Because it isn’t made from real wood, it’s easier to handle and much more lightweight. Plus, the tools involved are more basic as well. That being said, it does come with the professional assembly option.
Fully Functional Built-In Lighting System
This is the only vanity on our list that comes with a built-in lighting feature, so it is super glam. You can obviously choose to place any style light in the fixtures, but the vanity set comes with 3000k and 6000k lighting options. The vendor recommends the 3000k bulbs, even though that is the less expensive option. These items ship in a separate box from the vanity. All of that amazing lighting, plus the giant mirror on this vanity makes sure you won't miss a detail. There is only one drawer on this vanity, but it is extra large and comes with metal tracking and stopper so it won’t slip out and so that it can support all of your heavy-duty beauty needs. This vanity does not come with a matching stool or bench.
Cost and Value
Considering that this unit comes with a huge mirror that is fully lit by 10 LED bulbs (all included with your purchase, by the way), the middle price range of this vanity isn’t bad. But you should keep in mind that it only comes with one drawer (though there is ample storage space in the drawer and on top of the vanity) and no stool. This vanity is also not made of real wood, so if that’s important to you, steer clear.
Criteria Used for Evaluation
If you are thinking about vanities, it is impossible not to think about style. They go hand in hand, right? That’s why style weighed so heavily in our consideration when making this Top 10 list.
The whole point of purchasing a vanity is to create a space where you can give yourself or someone you love the time a room to take care of themselves. So you don’t want a list full of bulky clunkers with sharp edges and no refinement.
We pulled items to our list that had softer, smoother edges. Not only will these vanities protect you from those painful hip-bump bruises, but they’re also much nicer to look at. We also highlighted vanities that came in multiple color options so that you could feel more confident about finding a look that is just right for you.
Of course, we considered the style and type of finishing of each vanity. Almost all of our vanities come with some style of metal finishings--not simple wood knobs. We really loved the vanities that came with hoop finishings, as they are easier to pull and add artistic design flair.
Features were key in deciding which vanities made our list and which did not.
We wanted to be super clear about the kind of storage you could expect out of each vanity. While some buyers care more about a place to sit and apply makeup, others are looking for a total beauty package with room to store all of their beauty essentials from makeup to jewelry to hair supplies. So we loved those vanities that were compact but also provided ample storage. We especially love the vanities that gave tiered storage for more space on top of the vanity, and those that provided cubby slots and extra organizations drawer components.
Then we paid special attention to the function of the mirror. Almost all of our mirrors feature a 360-degree rotating mirror or a tri-folding mirror. Both of these serve to give you multiple angles--nobody likes flat hair on the back. Consider too that most of these vanities can function as other pieces of furniture without the mirror attached.
Finally, we considered the paired stool or bench option. Because stools can often be spindly and unbalanced, we featured mainly vanity sets that came with bench-style seating. The wider base of these benches make them more sturdy and thus, more durable. Of course, we looked for nice padding too, because beauty takes time.
As with all home furnishings, size is such an important factor to consider. Nothing is worse than purchasing an item only coming to find it doesn’t fit in your space. That’s why we made sure to always list product dimensions.
Those vanities that were small in size but still managed to pack in a lot of extra storage space ranked highest when we considered size. Those items that were small but required extra storage were also noted specifically. Finally, those vanities that were large with little storage got a poor rating (because we rank items even when they don’t make our list).
As always, we want to make sure that the products on our list are made from high-quality materials that won’t break down tomorrow.
Fortunately, all but one product on this list is made from genuine wood, but that’s not to say that all of these woods are made or treated in the same way. That’s why we tried to consider how each product was sanded and finished, and how the wood was treated.
We also looked at the finishings of each product and featured items that were finished in metal and not wooden knobs.
And finally, we took value under major consideration. As we stated before, home furnishings can range greatly in price, so we tried to find items that were well reviewed and that would not break the bank.
Most of the items on our list come in at under $300. Considering you get 3 separate pieces (a table with drawers, a stool, and a mirror) with almost every vanity set, we consider our price range to provide excellent value.
We made sure to make you aware of when you might need to purchase extra organizational units because of a lack of storage in the unit we presented. We also made sure to highlight the items that packed the most storage into the smallest package.
Expert Interviews & Opinions
If you are simply looking for a place to sit while beautifying yourself, then your options range pretty widely. But if you’re looking for a vanity with lots of storage options, you’ll want to make your selection with a little more precision. Consider our advice when it comes to storage. If you want an all-in-one vanity, stay away from the small items on our list that require you to purchase extra storage space.
As always, size matters. It’s a shame to get excited about a purchase and then realize it doesn’t fit in your desired space. That’s why we made sure to include all product dimensions so that you could be sure you’re getting a product that is the right fit for you space.
Other Factors to Consider
No one wants to be battling with their mirror when they are trying to beautify themselves. Nor is it a comforting feeling knowing you’ve just broken a stool. So we looked for those vanity sets that provided reliable mirrors and sturdy stools or benches.
Finally, we looked at how versatile each vanity could be. Can you use it in the bedroom and bathroom and closet? Can it be used by children and adults? Can it be converted into other furniture options? These were all questions we asked when selecting the vanities that made our list.
Frequently Asked Questions
