Trying to execute a flawless face or a sexy, smokey eye in a cramped bathroom with dim lighting is the opposite of enjoyable. So, rather than throwing your hands up in the air, why not channel that energy into a dedicated spot for primping? From preening stations piled high with products to more streamlined setups, there's plenty of inspo to go around. Scroll on for 14 Insta-worthy vanities that are total #goals.

1. Create a diva den.

Unleash your inner diva! Embrace fabulosity with a gilded mirror, tufted gold seat, spotted wallpaper, and gold vanity to display for all your beauty supplies and jewelry.

2. Blend different decades.
