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.

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.

Whose towel is whose. Alternatively you could employ the same strategy of demarcating sink space even without a trough basin by mounting your towel bars just under the lip of the countertop. Especially in a guest room or kid's shared bathroom this makes it easier to identify whose towel is whose compared with a catchall hook mounted somewhere on the wall.

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.

Ottomans can easily adapt to life as nightstands. They can be found upholstered or in leather or wood. They also come in a variety of shapes: round square rectangle octagon. Choose a piece that is about the same height as the top of your mattress in a width suitable for the space next to your bed. With upholstered ottomans you may want to place a tray or large book on top to create a flat surface for a lamp and other bedside items. Tip: Look for an ottoman with additional storage inside. Many have compartments specifically designed to store shoes — a bonus for shoe lovers.

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.

Squeeze in a micro shelf. Think there isn't even room for a shelf? Think again. When a bed has to be squeezed into an alcove it can seem as if there isn't any room for bedside storage but this teeny-weeny shelf attached to the side of a closet is a clever solution. The curved edge is a safer option if space is tight and the shelf is close to the bed out of necessity. Admittedly displaying a vase of flowers here may not be terribly practical if this room is used every day but this dinky shelf would be the perfect size for a phone or alarm clock.
