If possible, position a mirror across from your window so it will reflect the view and give the illusion of another window.

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.

Particularly with the advent of lavish en-suite bath setups and private decks, our sleeping quarters have transformed from strictly utilitarian spaces into retreats that serve as an escape from our busy lives. There's no reason why your bedding can't serve the same purpose. One way to make sure your textiles drive home a relaxed feel is by taking a closer look at color psychology.

Tight-back sofas and sectionals don't have extra pillows and can be as shallow as 32 inches while still feeling as generous as a standard 40-inch-deep sofa.

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.
