If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
This bathroom takes on a garden theme, bringing what lies beyond the sliding doors inside. Lush greenery covers the wall just behind the white oval bathtub. The sink has been designed in a unique barrel shape and the water flows from a stainless faucet that comes from above and out of a mirrored stone wall. The open roof and glass doors allow ample natural lighting. Drop pendant lighting is added for after the sun goes down. To make a head-turning bathroom there are many Beautiful Bathtubs to choose from.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.
Tranquility can be found in this understated bathroom. The window looks out on the peaceful scenery. Traditional carpets are placed on a wood planked floor. The rectangular freestanding tub sits next to a marble wall opposite a double sink bathroom vanity. These grey concrete walls border a sleek bathroom with marble vanity and round vessel sink. The shower features a teak wood floor. The ceiling is open and this is where greenery encroaches upon the room. This look keeps it simple with both grey and taupe tile surrounding the bathroom. A rainfall showerhead keeps with the straight lines of the entire design.
A simple breakfast bar is a must for a kitchen that wants to double as a gathering place. Natural wood all around gives this kitchen a bit of a rustic bent. The hexagonal shelving are a little bit playful but still functional. When a dining table is attached to a kitchen countertop, two rooms can take up the space of one.
There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
What should we do if the space to renovate is long and narrow? Decorating such spaces can be a bit puzzling but it's possible to create a fantastic look with style. This bathroom is a good example of such renovating, just look how fresh, luminous and modern it is!
There is no right or wrong when it comes to personal comfort, but for this review we split the difference and searched for the best mattress at a medium firmness. For comparing prices, we looked only at queen-size mattresses, the less expensive of the regal options.
The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it's to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they'll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both.
