Door mounts. Don't neglect any square inch in your quest to maximize comfort and functionality in your bathroom. Especially in a small bathroom thinking beyond wall space to take advantage of doors and even windowsills can improve flow and open up design possibilities.

The hedonist. If people tend to think you're the practical sort prove them wrong by creating a bathroom that lets you go luxe. Indulge all your senses with bubble bath candles fluffy towels and a bath mat to sink your toes into when it's time to dry off and step back into the real world.

Color pops. Liven up a plain bedroom with an accent wall covered in fabulously bold wallpaper. For the truly fearless choose a contrasting color (like the yellow here against the peacock blue wall) for the bedside tables and cushions. If you prefer to limit your pop to one place choose a white or wood headboard and tables and layer on neutral (but deliciously textured) bedding.

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.

The nightstand next to your bed is one of the most essential surfaces in your bedroom. It provides a home for books photo frames and sleepy-time necessities like eye masks and earplugs. Most of us opt for the classic version: a small square table with a drawer and a matching counterpart on the other side of the bed. But this functional area doesn't have to be so well square. Swapping out that classic nightstand for a piece of non-bedroom furniture can add personality as well as function to your bedroom. Here are unique alternatives to the classic nightstand. The best part about these options? They are common enough pieces that you may already have them on hand. If not you'll be able to pick them up for a reasonable price at a garage sale or flea market.

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. But there are ways to make your white stand out from the rest. Here hints of black in the dark grout and fixtures are points of difference. Subtle but lovely features can inject enough difference into an all-white room to make it interesting: a signature circular mirror well-cared-for plants and a designer wood stool in this case. Textured tiles also bring depth to an all-white palette.

Glass screen. A glass screen or panel extends about 60 percent of the way across the side of the tub and is fixed to the wall with brackets or hinges. It can be stationary or have a door that swings out from the tub. A glass screen is a great option in small bathrooms because it takes up less space physically and visually since less glass and hardware are needed. A glass panel with a door that swings out because it fit the room's contemporary feel and makes the tile in the shower a focal point. The swinging door allows better access to the water controls.
