You should have a clear idea of what you are expecting out of your dressing unit. Based on your requirements you will be able to decide all that you need to be installed in the unit.

Sometimes people dedicate a short corridor leading front he bathroom to the bedroom as wardrobe/dressing unit area.
Lighting is important for a dressing table. The right type of lighting will help you see yourself as others see you. It will help you better apply your choice of make-up. LED lightings are a better option as downlights can be too bright and harsh. Installing dimmers is also a good option for a wider range of lighting options.
