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.

Nightstands For Small BedroomNightstands For Small Bedroom

Parisian chic. A restrained palette of black and white can feel really luxurious especially when you choose textures and details that thrill the senses. Smooth dark (or even painted) wood floors and crisp white walls create an envelope to fill with little luxuries — fine sheets and a delicate coverlet a petite chandelier a velvet cushion. Add a bit of sparkle with a few vintage perfume bottles and spritz sheets with linen water before slipping in for the night.

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.

Connect with the outdoors. While this might not be feasible in all climates connecting a room with the outdoors is a great way to make the space feel larger and admit more natural light. If your bedroom is on the ground floor (or is on the second story and has an adjacent terrace) adding a set of French doors can instantly increase visual space.

The nudist. It's not always practical to unleash your alter ego when it involves shedding all your clothes but there's no reason you can't do the next best thing and bathe au naturel alfresco.

Shower doors. Keep your towel mount integral to the shower enclosure itself. If you're lucky all the heat and steam against the glass may warm your towel in the process. Here a pivoting door swings on a hinge so the bather can access a towel without having to leave the steamy environs and without dripping any water outside the shower room. Naturally this type of hinged door works best when you have room to spare since its radius projects into the stall.

Frameless glass tub door. A frameless glass door is a more extended version of the glass screen. It includes a stationary glass screen on one side of the tub and a glass door with a handle on the other side. This option completely encloses the showering area in glass.

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.

Although marble is often thought of as a traditional material this freestanding white marble tub has a distinctly modern look. The circular design flows with the bathroom's curved exterior wall. The round shapes contrast nicely with the angles on the doors and floor.
