Some people might consider vanity a character flaw. But in the home-decorating venue, a vanity is a type of table or pedestal found in a bedroom or bathroom. Also called a dressing table, these cabinet-plus-countertop combos are designed for getting ready and are usually equipped with mirrors.
There are really two distinct types of vanities. A bathroom vanity is the cabinetry unit containing a sink, while a bedroom vanity does not have a sink but usually comes with a chair or stool.
