What is the best vanity mirror set with lights and table? We asked our parent readers for their real world experiences. From these suggestions, we narrowed down the list to the top nine choices, comparing quality and construction. We eliminated models with poor durability. Here are the ones we think are best.

Best Storage

Looks pretty
The generous storage (both drawers and shelves) are the star feature here, but we also liked the lighting design. Assembly is easy enough, but takes some time.

• Spacious storage drawers.

• Anti-tip device on back of mirror.

• Three color modes.

• Adjustable brightness.

• Assembly is simple, but does take some time.

Best For Corners

Smart space saver
We loved this vanity's clever design, which tucks nicely in a corner and features a stack of drawers that rotates. Easy to assemble with good lighting.

Best For Corners: Vanity with Lights

Sometimes the best place for a vanity is in the corner of a room, but not all vanities work well in that location. After researching several models that fit into corners, we went with this reader favorite by SMOOL. We loved the use of space here, including a rotatable stack of drawers. Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Easy to assemble.

• Lights can be dimmed.

• Three color modes.

• Drawer stack rotates.

• Generous storage overall, including display shelves.

• Affordable.

• Good mirror coverage with tri-fold design.

What Needs Work

• Included stool could be more cushy.

• Lights have visible wires that run between them.

• A bit wobbly.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
