Part ways with your footboard-style bed frame and replace it with a simple modern headboard to finish the look of your bed. Or, opt for a hollywood-style frame that supports the bottom of the bed and extends no further than the perimeter of the mattress. You can decorate the space above the bed with art, or add a headboard later.

Figuring out how to design your own interiors is one thing, but for some reason, when it comes to putting together a guest room, decisions feel extra important.

That said, the question becomes: What does it take to create a great guest room? Which features will make your guests feel most at home and leave them talking about how much they've enjoyed their stay? We're here to help figure that out.

Geometrically-patterned screens or room dividers create the most contemporary impact. For extra contrast, remove the screen's boring paper backing and paint the screen's frame in a color that ties into your bedroom's decor. Another non-traditional way to create a cool, modern headboard is by using the panels unconventionally. Hang the panel vertically instead of horizontally. Group two narrow, vertical panels with a gap in-between. The headboard design above is not only different but changes with the bedding. The homeowners remove the coordinating striped runners and replace them with new ones that go with the fresh, new bedding.

One of the beautiful advantages to having a flat screen television is the ability to view it from many angles of the room. This same advantage is its disadvantage when it comes to placing furniture in the room. The challenge is that you can't have obstacles that are within the line of sight of the television. Stand back in all angles of the room and assess what furniture is too tall and plan for space around it. Another trick is to stand at the television and look back at the room. You will easily see what is obstructing the view and space.

A bedroom without a bedside table means that things like your clock, smartphone, books and lamps are without a home. When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken.

The tray top is removable for when you crave breakfast in bed. The table, available in an antique bronze or brass finish, works well as a nightstand for a small space because it can be folded up and stored when not needed. The two-tone look in walnut and white lacquer make this simple, modern table ($399) a fresh nightstand option. The boxy design may appear no-frills, but the walnut woodgrain and glossy white lacquer offer rich detailing, and the self-closing drawer adds a nice touch.

If your flooring is keeping you in the past, try switching from your traditional rolled vinyl or linoleum flooring to a more resilient, timeless material — we're talking wood, tile, or stone. These materials will last longer as well as boost the value of your home. In recent years, ceramic tile that mimics the look of hardwood has become popular, as well as travertine and slate.

And since they are a high-traffic space (and one where updates are noticeable), doing so can have a significant effect on resale value. When starting a bathroom remodeling project think about utility as well as design. Bathrooms are often difficult jobs because multiple components must be arranged to fit–and function–in a small space. There's also multiple water elements so doing the project correctly, from plumbing to ventilation, is imperative.
