Night tables are pretty essential pieces of bedroom furniture. But many tend to be a bit utilitarian in terms of style and they can get cluttered with our necessities. To give your bedroom the royal treatment first declutter your nightstand. Remove excess paperwork and posessions leaving only lighting a book and perhaps a small vase of flowers. Next swap out your current nightstand for one with a luxury finish — mirror or shagreen is a great option. A subtler route is to choose a piece with reflective hardware such as crystal or brass. In this bedroom the mirrored table shiny lamp and gilded mirror create a regal look even against a plain white wall.

Mind the door direction. Which way does the shower door swing? Locating your towels so they can be grabbed quickly minimizes the distance one must lean out of the shower stall and therefore minimizes the risk of slipping and falling or experiencing an uncomfortable chill from spending more than a couple of seconds outside the shower stall's steamy cocoon. If you only have one wall to hang your towels make sure to have your shower door mounted to open in the most convenient direction.

Add a bit of sparkle with a few vintage perfume bottles and spritz sheets with linen water before slipping in for the night.

Not all table lamps are created equal for reading. Ideally the base of the shade should sit level with your eyes when you're propped up in bed and the shade should direct light toward you rather than channeling it up or down. Floor lamps also are an option but they compete for space with nightstands so it can be harder to make them work.

Shower enclosure. Barring a door mount a tiled half wall may be the next best thing. You'll barely have to open the door to access your towel. In this particular shower the shower head and drain are far enough from the exit that you won't have to drench your floors to reach for that towel.

Lovely lavender. Light-to-medium purple shades are thought to ease our stress levels. If you could use a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom give a lavender or lilac hue a try. I suggest sticking to a shade that is fairly pure or saturated rather than one with an abundance of gray in it. A heavily grayed-out purple or lavender can feel gloomy especially on overcast days.
