The next step is to determine how much work, cost and house renovating it will take to convert your attic into a master bedroom. For older houses, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning will have to be run to the attic and possibly plumbing pipes. For many home owners, the expense of having to run new services to the attic is minimal in comparison to the benefit of added space and functionality. Before you get started, ask a contractor or a home improvement professional to assist you in estimating the costs. Remember return on investment (ROI) could bring you back more money than you invested into the initial conversion.
Lights and lamps should highlight your décor and make a statement if needed. Refined crystal chandeliers are the most popular ones for a feminine space, they can fit any style from vintage to modern and give an exquisite feel to the space. Sculptural lamps with petals, flowers and butterflies will make a bold girlish statement even in the simplest room. You can also rock various lamps of girlish shades like blush, pink and purple to complement your feminine living room.
Not everyone has the luxury of an enormous shower room like the one pictured here, but that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from its striking décor. Large slate gray tiles look great even in a small room, as large tiles generally increase the look of space in confined quarters.

Irresistibly smooth and balanced. Fixtures centered on the wall of the tub can accommodate an occupant lounging in either direction. A subtle pedestal permits a lighter aesthetic than designs that rest on the floor. The slender faucet lacks any excess or ornamentation, allowing its graceful curvature to capture the spotlight.
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
With this in mind, we return to our reality. Now that summer is over and we hurry towards wintertime, outdoor canopy beds are put aside for an encounter with cozy canopy beds in the bedroom. Feathered beds used to be frameless bags filled with feathers that had to be fluffed every morning. Now we indulge in soft but sturdy mattresses with luxurious bedsheets under breezy canopies.
The molding on the walls in this design marries the classic with the contemporary. This new kitchen is given a rustic feel with whitewashed wood and mismatched floor panels. This design uses an uneven ceiling to its advantage, creating interest with handing light fixtures and angular skylights. Look no further than this kitchen for some inspired overhead lighting ideas.
Comparing mattresses can feel like comparing apples to oranges, since everyone has a finely tuned preference for what sends them off to snoozeville. Some want to sleep like Aslan on the stone table in Narnia; others prefer to feel like they're sinking in a vat of quicksand.
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.
