If there is at least one girl in the house, a makeup nook is a must. Most girls prefer making it in a bedroom, a closet, sometimes a bathroom. The main tip for creating a makeup space is to make sure that there’s enough light, best of all, natural light, so placing it next to the window or on a windowsill is a great idea. You may still need some additional light, so opt for lamps, sconces or lit up mirrors. The other points are a cool vanity, a comfy chair and makeup storage, so let’s have a look at some options you may try.
Glam style is very popular for makeup nooks because we are girls, we love glam! To give your nook a glam feel, go for a mirrored or glass top vanity, lit up mirrors, lots of lights and lamps, a faux fur or a velvet chair – velvet is one of the hottest trends now. Acrylic organizers or floating shelves are a great idea for makeup storage.
Modern style is also a chic idea, it’s easy to create and can be incorporated into many spaces. Go for a white vanity with a glass top or not – it may be IKEA Micke desk, for example, or a Vittsjo desk, which is transparent. Add a lit up mirror or mirrors, a drawer unit or IKEA Lack shelves for makeup storage, voila! If there no space, then opt for a wall-mounted vanity or use the windowsill.
If your space style is vintage or shabby chic, you’ll need something more refined. Get a vintage vanity (you may buy one on a flea market and renovate it), add a pastel chair, a refined vintage mirror and some lamps with chic design.
Mid-century modern and industrial makeup nooks can be also seen – you’ll need a mid-century modern vanity, a suspended mirror, a matching chair and some geometric touches. Get inspired by the ideas below!
