For the latest trend in contemporary bathroom design, try replacing your vanity with a floating-style wall-mounted countertop such as the Aeri ($632), which features an integrated towel rail. Not only is the look modern, it's a great solution for a small bathroom when floor space is critical. Ikea is among the best resources for small-space furnishings, and the Lillangen ($209) doesn't disappoint. This version of the cabinet isn't even its smallest offering in the series; there's one that comes in at under 16 inches wide. But this has additional shelving that can be accessed from both the front and the side. And considering that it comes with stainless steel hooks, a soap dish and tray, this may be the most practical vanity on our list.

Be sure to vary the mirrors so that they complement instead of compete against one another. Keep them all on one wall, or you'll risk a funhouse effect. Technically, most mirrors are hung on the wall. However, suspending the mirror from a visible rope or wire is a great way to add an element of interest. You can choose from a variety of materials to hang the mirror, such as thick rope to create a nautical theme or wire for a more modern, industrial vibe — just be sure it's secure.

However, narrow floor plans and limited space call for deviation for this. To maximize the floor space, tuck your bed up against a wall or corner. The effect will create a sleep area that feels cozier. If it feels too much like a college dorm? Add a two headboard corner system to create a finished, designer look to a bedroom.

Consider using white shades throughout many of your design elements to give the room a light and airy feel. Remember that natural materials like wood and marble also count as neutrals. Consider including them to add more visual interest.

From reports on insufficient sleep by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to hundreds of customer ratings and reviews, we were extremely thorough in our research. Ironically, we did lose quite a bit of sleep over this one. Comparing mattresses can feel like comparing apples to oranges, since everyone has a finely tuned preference for what sends them off to snoozeville.

Hang cork board and cork strips, baskets and other cubbies from the wall in a cool gallery wall pattern. Again, use Command adhesive strips instead of nails to hold items in place. Create an interesting headboard by adding a bookcase behind your bed to store extra items. Just be sure the shelves are high enough that you don't bang your head when you sit up. Or you can avoid that by choosing a narrow book case that your bed sits against.
