Ever considered going all black in the bathroom? It's certainly one way to make a glamorous statement. You can offset the look of all black and prevent it from being overwhelming with the use of high-shine tiles expansive mirrors and good lighting. In this bathroom a smaller-format tile on the floor prevents the shower recess from feeling so closed in. A black bathroom can be just as calming as one in lighter tones. Mosaic wall tiles with a hint of sparkle breathe life into this award-winning bathroom and wood adds a natural element that ties in with the lush garden outside. Dimmable lighting in a black bathroom delivers instant ambience. Metallic hardware pairs well with a mostly black bathroom bringing an elegant edge to a space that can otherwise feel austere. Even the ceiling is black in this bathroom but the hexagonal marble tiles on the floor and up one wall bring in just enough texture to make the room beautiful rather than boxy.

Squeeze in a micro shelf. Think there isn't even room for a shelf? Think again. When a bed has to be squeezed into an alcove it can seem as if there isn't any room for bedside storage but this teeny-weeny shelf attached to the side of a closet is a clever solution. The curved edge is a safer option if space is tight and the shelf is close to the bed out of necessity. Admittedly displaying a vase of flowers here may not be terribly practical if this room is used every day but this dinky shelf would be the perfect size for a phone or alarm clock.

A nice way to mix and match furnishings is to unify them with a common hue. In this space the lamps differ in height and style but the color green is what allows them to "speak" to each other. On either side of this bed you'll see that the nightstands and artwork are different. However equity is created because the height on both sides is the same. This type of symmetry is not always necessary but visual balance does help to make a room feel more comfortable for some people.

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.

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.
