Perfect symmetry. Just because you love minimalist design doesn't mean you have to go without when it comes to storage. This unit combines ample space in the lower cabinets with plenty of display space above. The natural timber contrasts nicely with the tiles wrapping around the fireplace surround. For a polished and professional‐looking finish custom‐made cabinets are often the way to go. The cabinets work so well here because they align precisely with the top of the fireplace.

Choose bilevel furniture. Clear surfaces look great – but let's face it they are hard to keep clear. One way to solve that problem is by picking out coffee and side tables with a lower shelf. You can spread out your stuff when you're home alone and then stack it up and stash it on the bottom shelf when company comes.

Problem‐solve with a versatile shape. Ovals are the new oblongs. Similar to a rectangular dining table the oval dining table is elongated to work in a narrow room but visually seems to occupy less space because of its rounded corners. Oval tables also have the benefits of a round table in that they provide a cozy and intimate setting but can usually seat more people.

Start small. Want to try black but still feeling unsure? Take your cue from this stylish abode and focus your dark aspirations on a small in‐between space such as a landing. The bold contrast will look stunning and the black won't be overwhelming due to the bright rooms on either side.

Add shine. Hanging a mirror in a dark painted hallway will add lightness and a sense of space without taking away from the dark aesthetic. This convex design reflects the whole space adding depth.

Upholstered chairs at the ends. This is perhaps the most popular way to shake up a set and with good reason – it nearly always looks great. Choose matching side chairs for the long sides and put matching upholstered armchairs at the ends.

Glass mosaic tile "was used throughout the open air shower and the tub area" Mackie notes. "The MTI whirlpool tub has jetted features and remote controls while the shower has a Grohe fixture with an adjustable arm. There's also a heated towel bar". Go with stone. "I rarely use anything but freestanding tubs. I love them!" says Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Interiors. "This one is from Turkey and is solid marble. The owners are from Louisiana and like darker colors and rich texture. We wanted to showcase the space and placing the tub in front of these windows was perfect – it really became the centerpiece".

Creating an area above a large bed for childhood keepsakes trinkets and books will make the room feel more cozy and childlike. If you're worried about a big bed taking up too much space consider painting the wall behind the bed a nice dark color. This will give the illusion of depth and make the room appear larger. Another great trick to add the illusion of space is to use lots of mirrors. I love the brightness the two mirrors flanking this large bed bring to the room. If you have the square footage lining the walls with multiple queen‐size beds is a great way to sleep a crowd. This room is perfect for slumber parties and late‐night pillow fights. This space looks like it was just transformed into a more mature design. The map keeps it playful but you'll be happy to hang on to the furniture long after your child has left for college. When choosing furniture go for timeless clean pieces your child will be happy to keep well into adulthood. Keeping the room colorful as with this bright pink accent wall will prevent the space from becoming too grown‐up. This cute nautical‐themed room would be great for a growing boy. The materials and patterns feel youthful but classic so it works as an instant guest room when necessary.
