Inside the shower. If you're sensitive to the cold and would rather have every single shower accouterment at your fingertips the instant you turn the water off a towel rack inside the shower stall might be right for you. If you want to pull this off it helps to have either a longer-than-standard-size shower stall or a rainfall shower that will be less likely to splash and get your dry towel wet.

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.

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.

Simple circulation. Try to keep your circulation on one side of the room. Hotels do a great job of this. There's a reason 90 percent of hotels have the same floor plan: because it's simple and it works. Circulation plans become a little more challenging with en suite rooms (bedrooms with bathrooms attached) or bedrooms that have doors to the outside. To save on space pay attention to where you locate the bathroom and closet in your bedroom. Rooms that have bathroom or closet access before the sleeping area require a longer hall (see the left-hand plan). If you organize the circulation so the bathroom and closet are accessed through the sleeping area (right-hand plan) you don't need a separate hall and you can add the circulation space into the room to make it feel larger too.

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.

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.

A console table is a versatile piece of furniture that can be useful in many rooms of the house. It's slim in profile and airy in design and can provide a small drawer for storage of personal items. In the bedroom a console table can pull double duty as a nightstand and desk or a nightstand and vanity thanks to the open space that allows you to place a stool ottoman or chair underneath. Console tables seen here frame a bed nicely when the same or similar style is placed on either side of the bed. Tip: If you aren't pairing matching tables be sure the other night table is at least the height of the bed and of a similar width as the console table.

Wooden bathtubs usually made from waterproofed marine wood add unexpected warmth to tile and stone bathrooms. This rectangular tub works well with an Asian-influenced design but I love that it can feel classic too.
