Consider the furniture layout. Your bedroom's architecture should take your furniture into account. Bedroom floor plans usually have a bed wall — but what about dressers nightstands TVs chairs and a desk? Work with your architect or designer to make sure there is enough space beside the bed for nightstands and ample circulation so you can access three sides of the mattress.

Reframe clearing clutter in a positive light. It's all too easy to let the bedroom become a dumping ground for all the random items that don't seem to fit anywhere else. So the first step in clearing clutter is to consider what you do want in the bedroom. Fresh sheets good lighting your current book on the nightstand? Definitely. Piles of paper children's toys and the vacuum cleaner? Probably not. Take action: Center yourself by taking a few deep calming breaths before you begin. Then start sorting through items in your bedroom piece by piece choosing those you want to keep there and removing everything else. Don't worry right now about where the unwanted items will go — separating out this part of the process can make decision-making much easier.

Step stool. A repurposed step stool is a smart budget-friendly and space-saving substitute for a night table. Whether designed for a child's room the kitchen or the garage stools often have small proportions that are good for small spaces. A typical step stool measures 15 to 18 inches wide and about 21 inches high making it a good fit for many beds. Tip: Since a table lamp might take over much of the surface area of your step stool consider installing a wall sconce above it instead. That way you'll have room on the stool to place books reading glasses or a vase. If your bedroom allows space pair the stool with a similar-size furniture piece on the other side of the bed.

Lovely lavender. Light-to-medium purple shades are thought to ease our stress levels. If you could use a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom give a lavender or lilac hue a try. I suggest sticking to a shade that is fairly pure or saturated rather than one with an abundance of gray in it. A heavily grayed-out purple or lavender can feel gloomy especially on overcast days.

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.

Cool blues. A navy blue wall color adds a bit of drama to the room while helping to frame the fetching views. A softer blue hue on the ceiling mimics the sky giving the room an even more expansive vibe than it already has. A cool white color for the trim adds a clean crisp linear element. This is a decidedly cool color palette so it's best for bedrooms in hot and sunny locations.

Old-world comfort. Plump cushions and deep bedcovers are pure luxury. The patina of age on a mirror paired with full-length drapes and a personal collection of antiques call to mind venerable old European hotels. Silvery gray-blue paint plush wall-to-wall carpeting and creamy bedding are a serene match for this look.

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.
