4. Wall-mounted

If you are short on space, a wall-mounted unit will fit into a small area. While most dressing tables are designed to be used with a small chair or stool, a wall-mounted option is an excellent choice if you prefer to stand. You can customize the height of the dressing table placement as you desire.

5. Floating

Floating dressing tables attach to a wall. This creates a shelf-like space that easily blends into your decor. A floating style dressing table is discreet and provides a clean, streamlined finish while still expanding space for personal products. You'll need some empty wall space to attach a floating dressing table.

6. Lighted

Today's dressing tables often come with built-in lighting. From LED to bulb lights, there are many choices available. If you're applying detailed makeup, a lighted mirror is invaluable in your dressing table's design. Some designs boast a dimmable light that you can use for ambiance in your room.
