I guess it all depends on each of our own personal situation but with all the varied selections available, it can be quite difficult to choose. Although most vanity tables come with a matching stool, there are times when they don’t.
In fact, when you are buying your vanity table for the bedroom or cabinet for the bathroom, find out if a stool is included in the set. It may be sold separately.
So here I would endeavor to feature the different makes of a vanity stool that you can choose from. The Bench, the Swivel or the Wheeled-type.
The BenchA lot of us prefer the bench as it is sturdy, can have a great comfortable cushioned seat, and be stylish even if it’s a bit industrial. It can be made of wood or steel. Depends where we shall be using it, whether the bathroom or the bedroom, any of the styles are applicable in these two rooms. Although wood may be better off in the bedroom, as the bathroom with its moisture atmosphere, can affect the quality of the wood eventually. However, if you do have a good ventilation system in the bathroom, it doesn’t matter.
The Mission-Style Vanity Stool is a modern version of the classic design that can match any décor. It is made of solid hardwood that is highly durable. It comes in 20” W size, and in four different colors – chestnut, light cherry, black and honey. It has a cushioned seat that can withstand everyday wear and tear. At homedecorators.com, it sells at a sale price of $47.99 where the regular price was $89. Standard shipping charges apply from $15.
The SwivelSome prefer the swivel chair as it provides for quick and easy movements with your weight without have to move your entire body. You can swing from left to right freely with no difficulty. Mostly of sturdy steel or metal construction, with a comfortable cushioned seat, not hard but just right. Others add traditional skirting, to give more style. But these are more for the bedroom vanity than the bathroom. In the bathrooms, the more modern look of black and stainless steel is more apt.

Vanity Stool on WheelsWheeled stools in the bathroom are not quite advisable due to its flooring. However, in the bedroom, it’s great. As long as the wheels are sturdily constructed, and the base bench is equally sturdy, then you got a perfect vanity stool on wheels.
