A nice way to mix and match furnishings is to unify them with a common hue. In this space the lamps differ in height and style but the color green is what allows them to "speak" to each other. On either side of this bed you'll see that the nightstands and artwork are different. However equity is created because the height on both sides is the same. This type of symmetry is not always necessary but visual balance does help to make a room feel more comfortable for some people.

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.

Shower enclosure. Barring a door mount a tiled half wall may be the next best thing. You'll barely have to open the door to access your towel. In this particular shower the shower head and drain are far enough from the exit that you won't have to drench your floors to reach for that towel.

Color pops. Liven up a plain bedroom with an accent wall covered in fabulously bold wallpaper. For the truly fearless choose a contrasting color (like the yellow here against the peacock blue wall) for the bedside tables and cushions. If you prefer to limit your pop to one place choose a white or wood headboard and tables and layer on neutral (but deliciously textured) bedding.

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.

A floating shelf provides enough space for the nightstand essentials: a vase of fresh flowers a candle — perhaps in a soothing scent like lavender — and a book. The designer saved surface space in this North London bedroom by choosing a hanging pendant. With no room to go wide along the sides of this bed the designer created a narrow but deep shelf. This photo of the same bedroom shows how the floating shelves line up neatly with the walls of the niche. The space beneath them is still available for stashing items; here it's a black case but baskets decorative boxes or even a stack of books would also work.There's no reason a floating shelf needs to be wooden. Blogger Michelle Hinckley found this vintage version at an estate sale and spray-painted it white. A slim task lamp offers lightweight illumination. This bedroom has a bit more space on either side of the bed. Nonetheless it's a good illustration of how floating nightstands can create the feeling of buoyancy in a room. Because floor space isn't taken up beneath the wall-mounted tables the room reads as a little more open. The pathways on either side of this bad aren't wide but the two floating cubes create the illusion of more space since they don't fill the entire gap. Pendant lights save surface space. The feature wall is planked cedar. This floating nightstand is in the same wood as the behind-the-bed feature wall and has a contemporary minimalist look. This space isn't as small as some of the others but the wall behind the bed doesn't have much space on either side of the bed frame. The floating shelves have two layers offering more space to stash nighttime necessities. This floating option isn't really a shelf at all but a ledge built into the wall planking. It holds a clock radio and plant with room left over for glasses and cellphone.

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.

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.
