The life of the party. Rubbing shoulders with the cool kids on the dance floor of the hippest nightclub in town might not be how you spend a typical Saturday night. But do you wish it were different?

Whose towel is whose. Alternatively you could employ the same strategy of demarcating sink space even without a trough basin by mounting your towel bars just under the lip of the countertop. Especially in a guest room or kid's shared bathroom this makes it easier to identify whose towel is whose compared with a catchall hook mounted somewhere on the wall.

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.

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.

Define vanity space. A long towel bar spans the length of this vanity and defines stations at the trough sink. Since the vanity is floating it makes sense to nest the bar squarely underneath it so that it doesn't protrude against the legs of those using the sink.

Bookshelves are stalwart storage options for so much more than novels and nonfiction. If you have enough space on one side of your bed try placing a bookshelf against the bed wall. It can house books (of course) as well as decorative boxes for storing personal items like those earplugs and eye masks. If it has an open back or a hole for threading out a cord then the shelf can store a small reading lamp too. If your bedroom door is in a corner of the bedroom as is quite common the bookcase will probably look best placed in the corner farthest from the door. This placement will make the room appear more balanced upon entry. This rule doesn't apply if your door is in the middle of the room. Tip: Keep your bookshelf neat and styled by mixing books with decorative items. Try color coordinating the spines of the books and alternating their placement from horizontal to vertical. Both strategies will help create an intentionally designed look.

Increase light and ventilation. Locating your bedroom at the corner of your home can give you windows on two or more adjacent walls. This gives you the added benefit of cross ventilation and a softer natural light.

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.
