Decor Ideas You Need To Know To Style A Glam Bedroom Vanity

Bedroom with Glam Station

When it comes to setting up your vanity, we wouldn't be surprised if you just throw all of your beauty supplies on whatever desk you can find. But if you're tired of digging your laptop out from under a pile of nail polishes and bottles of serum and don't want to have to move your entire makeup collection to make space to write in your planner, it's probably time for a vanity overhaul. Click through to check out some minimalist bedroom vanity ideas to help you glam up your glam station. 

Step 1: Pick the Bedroom Vanity

First, start with the perfect vanity. For a more decorative (but still minimalist) table, check out the Urban Outfitters Charlotte Vanity, which features gold hardware, a clear glass table, and beautifully clean and curved lines. If your tastes are more rustic, the Dims Home Composed Vanity offers a ton of storage and different colored wood finishes based on your other minimalist bedroom decor. 

Step 2: Find a Stool For Your Vanity

Every vanity needs a matching stool that completes it. Check out West Elm's Pietro Mid-Century Round Ottoman, which offers customizable upholstery options so you can match it to your room. Or the Urban Outfitters Ria Stool offers a boho accent to your bedroom vanity decor. 

Step 3: Bring the Organizers

A vanity isn't a vanity without some pieces to organize all of your products and nicknacks. Target's Threshold line has a few glass and copper options, like this one that's perfect for foundation bottles, makeup brushes, lipsticks, and more, or this one with wider compartments for bigger bottles like hair products. You can put all of your rings on a kitschy stand like Urban Outfitters' Peace Sign Ring Holder or throw them in a sleek catchall dish like CB2's Gleam Brass Footed Bowl. If you anticipate changing up your vanity station again in the near future, invest in clear acrylic organizers like the ones in Boxy Girl's collection so that they'll be sure to match whatever pieces you get later on. 

Step 4: Lighting Ideas For Vanity

And, of course, your vanity needs decent lighting so you can get your glam on no matter what time of day it is. This tabletop tripod ring light has three different light settings (cool, warm, and mixed) that are all dimmable so that you can get ready for any occasion. This tripod also has a built-in phone holder so you can shoot pics and tutorials whenever you want. 

Step 5: Vanity Decor

Finally, you want to add some decorative objects to your vanity to complete the glam look. Depending on how much space you have available, you can add more or less to your vanity space. But, the basics are a cute canvas wall art like this Chanel perfume one. A classic metal mirror vanity tray is a must-have. They're perfect for organizing your go-to items like perfumes, makeup, and brushes. Last but not least, you need to add some flower-power to your vanity to get that ultra-glam look you're trying to get. We love these faux peonies in a decorative vase to add a feminine touch to your vanity. 

Quick Ideas to Incorporate a Vanity Into Your Glam Bedroom

Glam Transitional Bedroom

Not everyone has the chance to have a full-blown beauty vanity in their bedrooms, especially those with spouses. But, you can still set up a glam vanity that doubles as a study or work desk, makeup station, or even a reading nook. To make this happen, keep decor to the minimum and focus on the major pieces like the desk and mirror. Bring that glam-style by choosing pieces with metal brass accents and art-deco style lines. 

Modern Glam BedroomThe same can be said of a small and simple desk. Turn it into your little glam vanity by adding a table mirror, some plants, and wall art. Over time, you can bring more items like trays, your ring light, and other things you need by your vanity table. To seamlessly integrate these into your glam bedroom decor, choose a desk with drawers for easy storage, so you can quickly put everything back in its place after you're done with your glam session.
