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.

Glamorous gray. Gray continues to be a top color of choice for new and renovated homes and opting for this color in a bathroom gives it a contemporary edge. In this updated Melbourne Australia period home a neutral palette modernizes while still staying true to its classic roots. There's something refreshingly clean about gray for a bathroom and while both black and white on floors and walls can show dirt a gray bathroom is easy to keep clean. Concrete (and concrete-look tiles) is the material of choice in ultramodern homes and extensions and bathrooms are the latest areas of the house to get the concrete treatment. The wood concrete and black palette of this bathroom continues throughout this Adelaide home. If midgray isn't your thing go for darker charcoals for a tinge of glamour and sophistication. The industrial-style light (with a yellow rather than white globe) and wood countertop add welcome warmth and moodiness to this space. You can never have too much marble in a bathroom especially when the expanse of gray is offset by metallic fixtures and a standout vanity. Marble tiles manage to be classic and contemporary at the same time a great choice for the cutting-edge addition to this home.

Want to really go all natural? This impressive bathtub was carved entirely out of a boulder. An installation like this is absolutely incredible but obviously costly (and could cause some issues with floor support). If you love the look you can purchase a similar-style acrylic version for a fraction of the price.

Create a peaceful atmosphere. What would a peaceful bedroom look and feel like to you? Consider whether there's a certain color (like vivid turquoise) or object (like a vase of fresh flowers) that really brings to mind the mood you want to create. Only bring in objects with the intention of cultivating peaceful restorative feelings. Take action: Take some time to sit quietly in your refreshed space and list the colors objects and activities you'd like to invite more of into your room. Pick one item on your list and take a step toward making it a reality. For example if you'd like to paint your bedroom a more soothing hue take a trip to the paint store to pick up swatches. If you'd like to incorporate meditation into your nightly routine create a quiet corner with cushions where you can practice.

Are you at a loss for what type of night stand to purchase? First consider how much space you have. If you have a small bedroom think about ways that your night stands can serve another function. A table for a nearby armchair or a small chest of drawers for clothes storage are two convenient options. Allow room for table lamps or install wall mounted sconces to read by. I am a firm believer in the power of drawers - they make your life easier less cluttered and more functional. At the very least try to find a table with a shelf to stash your magazines and books.

Embrace your whimsical side and opt for a chair as your night table. This look works particularly well when just one side of a bed has room for a nightstand β€” though it also looks adorable when you double up with chairs on both sides of the bed. Tip: For added interest select a chair that has a different texture from the other textiles in the room. For instance you might choose velvet against silk. It's also fun to choose a color that is different from but coordinates with the other colors in the room as in this bedroom. Add a hard tray or book on top of the seat of your chair to create a sturdy surface for your bedside knickknacks.
