Dressing Table Design Ideas

A dressing table should serve its purpose functionally and aesthetically to fit in with your wider bedroom scheme. It’s where we spend a lot of time – either styling our hair, putting on makeup, or getting ready for work – and is an integral part of our morning routine. Let’s explore some styling tips and tricks to help you make a dresser a luxurious part of any bedroom.


Your dressing table is simply not complete without a beautiful mirror. Bigger is normally better when it comes to checking out your outfit, but for close up product application, you’ll want something that’s smaller and easier to move nearer to your face.

Stylish Seating

A seat that looks good and is comfy to sit on is a must at a dressing table, whether it takes you mere moments or hours to get ready. You’ll want something with a padded or cushioned seat for the most luxurious touch. Small benches and stools are a popular choice as they can be tucked neatly away under your dressing table when not in use.

Personal Touch

Add in some decorative items to your dressing area such as art paintings, jewellery boxes and ring storage, perfume bottles on trays and catch-all bowls for your everyday pieces will create a beautifully curated space that can become a lovely focal point in your room.

Dressing Table With Storage

Many dressing tables have built-in storage for your cosmetic and skincare supplies. If you’ve got lots of make-up, consider getting drawer dividers to help you keep everything organised.

Good Lighting

Great lighting is an integral part of any dressing table space as you’ll want something that’s flattering but also honest. Avoid harsh light from above or below which can cause shadows. While natural light will always be your best friend when it comes to any make-up application, if you’re getting ready in the early morning before the sun comes up in winter or in the evenings for date night, consider creating a Hollywood-style dressing table with an illuminated mirror.
