In place of a vanity stool. Another place you might put your personal towels is in a recess where a vanity stool might otherwise go.

A separate towel rack on the wall offers ample room for dry towels to warm while their user is showering and for damp towels to dry out.

The bold and the beautiful. Bright colors aren't for everyone but if you have a favorite what are you afraid of? Attention-getting tangerine orange in a powder room is sure to be a talking point and it will cheer up anyone who enters. When a shade of green is this juicy why not blanket your bathroom with it? The bank of mirrored cabinets amplifies the natural light coming into the space and there's just enough wood to prevent all that green from going into overload. Architect Scott Weston isn't shy when it comes to color. In fact Weston sees color as a powerful tool that can set a home apart. This all-blue bathroom is far from cookie-cutter. The frameless shower screen and minimalist sink allow the tiles to be the main event without competition. In the same project — an addition to an 1880s Victorian in Sydney — this bathroom delivers the same quirky twist through the use of another unexpected color.

Dresser or chest. Rather than restricting your night-table furniture to the small or low profile you might go bold with a relatively large piece of furniture like a dresser or chest of drawers. This can provide much-needed extra storage particularly in a narrow bedroom. The key with a larger piece is to create balance. When the bed is placed in the middle of the wall add another large piece of furniture to the other side; a second dresser or a desk typically will work. Be sure both pieces are similar in height and width to create a more symmetrical look. Adding lamps of the same height on either side of the bed can add to the harmonious effect when your night tables don't match. Tip: If you opt for two different lamps and they are not exactly the same height place one or two books beneath the shorter lamp to give it the extra height.

Calm the visual noise. Ideally the bedroom would be solely devoted to rest and relaxation but if you live in a smaller space this simply may not be possible. If you must make room for your desk in the bedroom aim for a setup that allows you to hide everything away when you're done working. Tuck work-related items into drawers and cabinets leaving surfaces as clean and clear as possible for a restful feeling. Take action: Remove anything that reminds you of work bills or to-dos from within visual range of your bed. If you can find a place to store these items in a different room do so. If not clear out a drawer or shelf in a closed cabinet to keep them out of view.

Material Considerations. Glass thickness the thicker the glass the more durable your door or screen will be. If you are worried about it breaking the most glass doors and screens are made with tempered glass so that you won't have tiny shards in the bathroom if the glass does crack or break. Glass style: While clear glass is the most popular you also can find etched or frosted glass. Glass height: The top of the glass should go up at least to the top of the shower head. Hardware style: A glass screen or frameless glass door requires little hardware compared with a sliding or framed glass door. Clients often opt to use the same hardware finish as the shower head and tub faucet.

Reframe clearing clutter in a positive light. It's all too easy to let the bedroom become a dumping ground for all the random items that don't seem to fit anywhere else. So the first step in clearing clutter is to consider what you do want in the bedroom. Fresh sheets good lighting your current book on the nightstand? Definitely. Piles of paper children's toys and the vacuum cleaner? Probably not. Take action: Center yourself by taking a few deep calming breaths before you begin. Then start sorting through items in your bedroom piece by piece choosing those you want to keep there and removing everything else. Don't worry right now about where the unwanted items will go — separating out this part of the process can make decision-making much easier.
