A vanity bench can always help if you spend a lot of time in the bathroom putting on makeup or doing your hair. Have a look at this incredibly elegant tufted bench from Alice Lane Home that could do the trick. A more compact option is a simple stool, like this gorgeously elegant selection (again from Home Bunch) that matches the style of this bathroom. This vanity from APD Architects actually has its own seated area, with a matching cushioned stool. Even a regular ottoman can work in a bathroom. This one featured on HGTV has a space against a wall right across from the vanity. This next very interesting bench featured on BHG stems out from the vanity beside it, where there’s a window. If the size and architecture of your bathroom make it work, then why not?
You’re pretty lucky if you have a large enough window in your bathroom that could use a seating area right beneath it. A bathroom reno featured on Beneath My Heart uses an upholstered loveseat bench with added accent pillows for the window area. How about a built-in? This vanity featured on Home Bunch has a bench area near the window, while this other example (also from Home Bunch) creates a window seat out of a bathroom storage unit. You could also try a bathroom storage unit on a much larger scale with a bench as well, like the third option below from BHG. Built-ins are great, but they’re not for everyone. You could try a simple wicker bench with an elegant cushion to place by your bathroom window, like the one below featured on House of Turquoise.
An armoire can be a lovely addition to your bedroom, even if you already have a giant walk-in closet. If you have enough stuff, you may want to dedicate your armoire to neatly organizing and storing all your jewelry, scarves, purses, handbags, shoes, and other smaller accessories. Do you own enough hats? Simply replace the glass doors with netting for an interesting way to display them.

According to the architects, the client begun this renovation with a desire to “refinish” the floors. The scope quickly escalated into a full blown gut renovation once the full potential of the space was realized.
Another great use of tiles to give the kitchen its dose of yellow and gray, this is an idea for those who are not too keen on too much yellow disturbing the existing color scheme of their home. The dozen or so lemon yellow tiles combined with gray and white pieces still make plenty of visual impact and yet also seem to gently melt away into the backdrop. Notice here how the LED strip lighting literally puts the smart backsplash under the spotlight.
