Where do you get ready in the morning? Perhaps you have a spare bedroom, a large master suite, or even a spacious bathroom? If you’re fortunate enough to have a little extra space, a vanity with storage towers may be just what you need.
I absolutely love my Pottery Barn Teen Hampton makeup vanity! Let me guarantee you one thing, this vanity and tower set is not just for teens. This makeup vanity storage set is for anyone who has a lot of makeup, hair products, and miscellaneous accessories that need to be organized and kept right at your fingertips.
Our Favorite Makeup Vanity
The PBteen makeup vanity and storage towers are available for purchase separately. The vanity comes with a tall attached mirror, and has a single center drawer with wooden dividers. I keep the plug for my Simple Human lighted makeup mirror tucked inside for easy access, along with assorted hair ties and rubber bands. While definitely not inexpensive, this set is well worth the splurge if you have the space and the means. As of this writing, the makeup vanity set with two towers (left and right) retails for $2297.00 on the PBTeen website. Each tower is $849, and the vanity desk with mirror goes for $599.

Added Features to My PBTeen Hampton Vanity and Tower Set
To protect the vanity top, I had a piece of glass cut to fit exactly. This protects the surface from makeup, spills, hairspray, etc. For an extra-convenient touch, I had holes drilled into the back panels, and installed an electrical outlet in each tower so I can plug in my makeup mirror, curling iron, and hair dryer. Everything stores neatly away, with no visible cords, and no need for dangerous extension cords.
If you are in need of storage and organization, I highly recommend the PBTeen Hampton Vanity and Tower set. What a lifesaver! I can stay organized, and have all of my beauty essentials right at hand with more than enough storage. Happy organizing!
