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. If you have the space and find you rarely sit down there park a rack there and always have a towel within reach after washing your hands. 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.

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.

This easy styling trick is perfect for renters or decorators short on time. You don't need to mount oversized art — just lean the frame against the wall. This has the bonus of adding to the relaxed effortless feel we're going for in this room. I like to work with oversized prints and frames as they're a little bit unexpected and draw your attention.

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.

Keep privacy in mind. It's always nice when you can leave the bedroom door open without forsaking all of your privacy. The small foyer in this example provides separation from the family room. I always try to avoid designing a layout in which you look directly into the bedroom from a more public space like a great room kitchen or family room.

Tropical hue. Deep watery blue hues are among my favorites for a bedroom. The slight green undertones give a bit of warmth that a true blue lacks. It's also a nice choice if you happen to associate the color with a vacation spent someplace warm lush and tropical. For the ceiling I went with a crisp and light greenish-gray and the trim color is a slightly cool off-white.

Freestanding racks. If you'd rather hang art on your bathroom walls than towels a freestanding towel rack might be right for you. With the ability to move the rack wherever you want you can position it closer to the shower or the bathtub depending on your bathing preference.

Feature wall. Most of the previous solutions are optimal in bathrooms lacking in wall space. If you do have a free surface you could easily incorporate your towel racks as part of a feature wall. Here a wood-paneled alcove features five towel bars that the bather can easily reach from the tub.

Orange above. If you prefer to wake up with a happy jolt try a bold orange-gold color on the ceiling. An orange ceiling will intensify the blue of the skies outside as blue and orange are complementary colors. With such a strong color on the ceiling I'd go with light and warm neutrals for the walls and trim.
