7 Space-Saving Beauty Battle Stations You Can Fit in Your NYC Apartment

Beauty battle stations, for those of you unaware, are a cheeky term for your everyday vanity. Each has a desk, or some sort of storage space, a mirror, and then a chair. These can all be customized to your liking, of course, and you can even add fancy lighting around the mirror, or go crazy with your organizational skills. The goal is to not only have a beautiful place to pamper yourself, but a place to store and keep track of all your beauty essentials.

Now, the word “battle station” conjures up thoughts of massive spaces, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Even if you live in the tiniest room in the tiniest apartment in NYC, you can have your very own beauty battle station. The key, you see, is to use your space wisely. Here are 7 petite vanities to inspire your own.

Wooden Table With Wall Mirror

We love the soft wood grain and myriad buckets in this beauty battle station. The fact that the mirror is on the wall instead of the table itself will save you space, too.

Oversized Wall Mirror And Glass Table

The mirror is what brings this entire vanity together. The glass table is long enough to accommodate for storage underneath. You can find your own wood, or faux wood, drawers and then paint the face to match your decor scheme.

Settee and Full Length Mirror

Create both a sitting space and a vanity corner with a settee and full length mirror. You’ll be able to sit facing the mirror when applying makeup, and facing away when talking with company. The corner unit is a great way to add more shelving in a small space, as well.

Hanging Chair and Floating Desk

This arrangement takes up hardly any space at all. There’s a space on the wall for the chair to hang, plus the floating desk is narrow and modern-looking. Add another shelf above the desk that’s slightly more shallow, then adhere your mirror to the wall.

Five Minute Layered Shelving Vanity

This setup features layered acrylic shelving, a narrow desk and a dressed up chair. Instead of a large mirror, it uses a short, standing mirror. This one could even fit into a closet.

Modern Desk and Mirror Vanity

This one’s for the minimalist who loves a modern aesthetic. The mirror is straightforward and clean, the petite thrifted desk has been painted white, and the chair is unfussy.

Vintage, Ornate Vanity

If you prefer something more ornate, opt for a vintage vanity. You can go wild when repainting it, too, which makes for a fun project and a prettier space. There are so many vintage vanities to choose from out there (try your local thrift store), and many come with plenty of built-in storage.
