Unless you have the luxury of an oversized closet — or can live with three turtlenecks and two pairs of jeans, Steve Jobs style — conquering your closet is a necessity. Below are some small closet products that will not only help you organize your clothing, shoes and accessories, but also add storage space and beautify your closet.
Sometimes choosing a theme for a room can be the best inspiration for getting it to feel exactly how you'd like it. For bedrooms, one great theme is going with a country vibe that will make you forget the bustle of life outside the bedroom door. Keep the walls sunny and bright by choosing a pale yellow paint color and decorate with landscape photographs and light wooden furniture. Use antique touches, like a delicate chandelier and curvy nightstands to make sure the room doesn't feel too old-fashioned or frumpy.
A separate feature holds the hardware and doubles as the perfect place to set a book or glass of wine – very usable, and a pleasure to look at. An ovoid tub is the crown jewel of any minimalistic bathroom. This design features a subtle faucet and overflow so the comforting shape can take center stage.
The simplicity of this bathroom is the perfect contrast to the stunning views. By sinking the tub into the floor, the designer allows the bather to feel as if they are washing off in the still waters of a lake. The wood features in this bathroom mesh well with its views, letting you feel at one with the surrounding woods.
Perhaps more than any other room in the house, the bathroom is a private retreat. It is a place where we perform important daily rituals and where we take the time to truly indulge ourselves with the wonderful luxury of solitude. The bathrooms collected here use their own design elements but have the luxury factor in common. The bathroom is not a place to skimp and none of these designs do.
The pitched roof in this stylish home from visualizer Vizuall gives the living room a bit of height. Coupled with the low, angular sofa and modern sling chairs, the contrast creates visual interest while serving its practical purpose. Speaking of creative roofs and ceilings, the exposed brick ceiling in this living room from the same visualizer is so stunning that it's easy to get lost in it. It stands again in contrast to the simplicity and clean lines of the neutral colored furnishings.

Grey is one of the most popular basic colors that is easy to mix and match and is great for every space. But a grey living room can look too boring and impersonal and adding different hues of greens to it, makes a whole lot of difference. Various shades of green make the space cooler, bolder, fresher and much more eye-catching. Green reminds of natural world around us, and it's perfect if you want to create a fall or a spring mood.
There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
Make a mirror wall in the sink area for a gorgeous statement and comfortable using. It may be a limitless sleek mirror all over or big pieces covering the whole wall. Such a piece will fit lots of bathroom styles: modern, minimalist, rustic, industrial, refined and so on, and the touches of your style will be expressed in your tiles, finishes, lamps and counters. To achieve a maximal effect choose a small or very thin counter, which will interrupt this amazing mirror wall just for a little. One more great idea is to enlighten up the mirror with some lights on the sides, or just to attach some lamps right to the mirror.
