When white feels right. For many people white is the only color they'll ever consider in a bathroom and it's not hard to see why — it can look so clean and fresh.

Step stool. A repurposed step stool is a smart budget-friendly and space-saving substitute for a night table. Whether designed for a child's room the kitchen or the garage stools often have small proportions that are good for small spaces. A typical step stool measures 15 to 18 inches wide and about 21 inches high making it a good fit for many beds.
