When I was working on this bathroom remodel, we had a window that we couldn’t move...
It had recently been replaced, and the homeowner wasn’t in the mood to relocate it. Also, they didn’t want to mess with the brick on the outside of the house, no matter how the placement affected the layout. And to tell you the truth…
I don’t blame them.
So what did we do? We worked around it!
The window turned out to be a perfect spot for the seated vanity.
The natural light pouring in during the day was spectacular! To accent the window, and to trim it off real nicely, we framed it in stained cherry wood and added the cafe curtain to soften the look. The homeowner used a small make-up mirror at the table because it was a seated vanity.

But if you need a mirror there too, then you think you have to choose.
With these examples below, however, you don't have to choose. You can have both.
This is just a perfect example of breaking the rules, successfully.
