A very functional design can be incorporated for bathrooms as small as 5' X 8' in dimension. Sacrificing a large closet or partitioning off a small area of a larger room will provide the area needed. The first tip should be taking into account the location of electrical outlets and water sources. If these vital utilities do not already exist the key components of the room which are the toilet sink and tub or shower should be roughly sketched into the floor plan to allow proper placement of these utilities. The second factor will be the entrance door placement as this will determine the layout of the bathroom. If the door is located in the center of the room the toilet and sink will usually be placed on one side of the room with the tub or shower on the other side.

For example if you like to have large family gatherings but your immediate family is small you will need to have a table that will expand with extra leaves to accommodate guests. An additional option could be a circular drop-leaf table that expands out for more people and folds down for smaller groups. If you like the intimacy of a round surface for small gatherings around a meal choose a circular design.

Choose the Right Mattress. There is no one particular bed or mattress to suit us all so make sure you try a few before you purchase the perfect one. Besides the obvious observations like selecting a single bed over a double bed or a queen sized bed over a king sized bed pay sheer attention to opting for the right mattress. Apart from its firmness also look for its durability and ease of maintenance. Depending on what you mainly desire you can also accessorise your existing mattress with a soft mattress topper. You can even consider opting for a hypoallergenic bed linen and make sure to change it to suit the current weather. You also need to be aware of your pillow choices. As the general rule of thumb those who are stomach sleepers generally need soft and flat pillows; side sleepers need really thick ones while medium thickness would suit well for back sleepers.

Island. No matter how modestly sized an island can provide invaluable space for working serving and storing. I recently interviewed a designer who advised that we take the recommended dimensions and clearances with a grain of salt as they tend to work only for mansions and in Fantasyland. As long as you’re not bruising a hip every time you round the island you have enough space.

Go minimal. Are you in the process of picking new cabinets for your compact kitchen? Consider this look. Ultra‐plain handleless cabinets in a nude hue are soothing to look at and give a sense of visual order. Pick a seamless backsplash such as this slab of marble since tiles with grout can look busy. Get in a tight corner. When space is tight an ingenious trio of pullout corner drawers is a lifesaver helping to solve the problem of lost space in those awkward‐to‐access base cabinets. If you’re remodeling think about how you’d use such drawers – for cutlery towels pans dishes? Here a slimmer top drawer is complemented by the two deeper ones so all the bases are covered.
