Whether you’re applying makeup, picking out jewellery or sipping a gin and tonic before a night out, a dressing table is the ideal perch to primp and get ready. From oak to birch, ultra-feminine to neutral chic, amply sized or compact, we have a dressing table that will suit your space and needs. So, have a gander at our Habitat dressing tables buying guide and decide which one will help you look your best for the day ahead.

What are the different types of dressing tables?

We know that some people want a dressing table to be front and centre, whilst others see it as a practical piece of kit tucked out of the way. From classic styling to modern minimalism – you’re sure to find a style you love.

You could choose a dressing table with or without drawers or even opt out of a mirror. From oak to birch or ash to high gloss, we tick all of the boxes.

How to choose a dressing table

Choosing the right dressing table centres around the look you’d like to achieve.

Will your dressing table sit in a bedroom or a proper dressing room?

Would you like it to be a statement piece?

If so, where can it fit in the room you've chosen, and which accessories will you need to complete the look?

Habitat has bedroom collections that let you mix and match pieces, or maybe you’d rather go for a complete set in a unifying style. Unsure of which one to choose? Pop in-store or give our friendly customer services team a call on 0344 499 4686.


Take as much care of your dressing table as you would creating your look. For wood finishes, wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Be careful not to scratch your table and, most crucially, don’t place wet or hot items directly onto the dressing table.

Remove any liquid spills immediately with an absorbent cloth or paper towel and don’t let the table have contact with abrasive, alcohol, or solvent based cleaning agents. For specific cleaning instructions, please refer to individual product pages.
