Farmhouse tables are supposed to be big. But this one absolutely takes the cake. From what I see, you could easily fit 10 people around this one table.

Build this table ›

19. The Round Farm Table

fht19

This table is a little different from what most have in mind when they think of a farmhouse table. But it is still sturdy and nice to look at.

So if you don’t have a kitchen with room for a long rectangular table then you might want to consider this design. It still has farmhouse charm just in a different shape.

Build this table ›

20. The Smaller Farmhouse Table

But that is the really neat thing about this design is that you can add a different style chair with this design and give it a more modern flare.

Build this table ›

25. The Simple Farmhouse Table

fht25

This is another design that is super easy. So if you are someone that is new to the idea of building things yourself then this might be a good place to start.

Shower Design Ideas That Can Put Your Bathroom Over The Top

Walk-in showers are elegant and functional for any bathroom. Whether you also have a bathtub or just this area, your décor will be functional and chic. It will also give your bathroom a modern appeal and it will give you the possibility to efficiently use the space you have available. Get creative or find some inspiration somewhere else. We have selected five designs to get you started.

1. Glass-enclosed shower.

Achieve a spa feeling look
Use glass in combination with light colors to create a bright and open design
Save space with a corner shower and use glass for a less invasive look
Glass-enclosed en-suite showers eliminate the barriers between the spaces
Use glass for the shower walls to let light filter through and to create an airy look
If you want to create a seamless transition between the shower area and the rest of the bathroom, transparent glass is the perfect materials to help you with that. In this example the shower is encased in floor-to-ceiling glass panels. Inside there’s a bench and small, practical shelves mounted on the wall. The oversized showerhead is an interesting statement element.

2. Light-filled shower.

Consider including a window in the shower to allow light inside
Attic walk in shower featuring natural light
A window in the bathroom, regardless of its dimensions, can make a huge difference. It’s an especially beautiful addition in the shower. The sensation that you get when you see and feel the light embrace you is unique. Of course, a skylight would be even better. The shower will be bathed in natural light and will have an almost divine look. The decorations you choose for this space can also make a big difference.

3. Shower and steam room in one space.

Make sure you include a bench or two for maximum comfort
Having the tub in the shower is an interesting idea that works great in this case
Modern steam shower with glass walls and a built-in bench
Same space for both!
A designer shower enclosures walk-in and a steam generator can be combined to create your very own steam room. It’s a simple way of making your own spa. The amenities are critical is this case. It would be wise to include a small window that can be opened when you use the shower alone to let the air circulate. You’ll be able to use this space both as a regular shower and a steam room and you can enjoy relaxing moments right there in your own home.

4. Small shower unit.

Small walk in shower featuring subway tiles
Walk-in showers are a great alternative to bathtubs in small bathrooms
If you have a small bathroom you can still have the walk-in shower you wanted without sacrificing too much space. It would simply be a smaller version of the ones presented previously. To avoid making the bathroom feel cramped you can opt for simple lines and materials such as glass that would ensure a seamless transition. In this case, the frameless shower door was a clever choice.

5. Private spa.

To create a spa-like feel in your bathroom you have to use the right materials and textures
Consider having a wooden shower floor and adding a chandelier for style
Mosaic tiles!

Modern trend – round shower.

Make the shower the focal point of the décor and let it stand out on its own
Perhaps one of the most important elements to take into consideration, the shape of the walk-in shower can be the detail that defines your whole design. Round showers tend to look more glamorous, especially if they’re encased in glass. However, a round shower is not ideal for small bathrooms.

Nature-inspired.

An eclectic shower brings nature inside and takes advantage of its organic beauty
Perhaps you’d like to feel closer to nature when you’re taking a shower, in which case you should consider using materials like stone and wood. Try a combination of materials and make sure you use the contrasts to your advantage, to create a unique design. You could have stone or river stones on the floor and use wood as a decorative feature.

Open.

By eliminating the dividing walls, the bathrooms becomes more cohesive and harmonious
Maybe you’re used with showers being encased in glass or having curtains and dividing walls to separate them from the rest of the bathrooms. Although that’s the case in most homes, such features are not strictly necessary. You can also have an open shower and this will make the room feel more spacious.

Indoor-outdoor combo.

You should include similarities between the two showers, like these flowers for example
Consider placing the indoor and outdoor showers side by side. Allow them to communicate with each other through glass walls and create a connection between them. This way light get in and illuminates the indoor shower area and the outdoor one feels less out of place and more comfortable.

Luxury shower.

The shower floor looks like it’s covered with pennies and similar accents are used on the walls
It’s hard to say what makes a shower look luxurious. It’s a combination between the materials used, the finishes, the colors and the overall ambiance. A luxury walk-in shower has no visual defects. Everything it perfectly aligned and there’s always one element that puts it over the top.

Benefits of Walk-in showers

It’s not just the stylish design that makes walk-in showers so versatile and popular. There are numerous other benefits that they offer. For example:

Walk-in showers are both safer and easier to use. This makes them more user-friendly than tubs or regular showers, especially in the case of kids, elderly people or those with medical issues.

They are wheelchair-accessible, which allows them to stand out as superior compared to tubs or other types of showers.

Apart from being minimalist and elegant, they also offer extra space in the bathroom. Because of their simplicity and straight-forward design, they allow the room to be more airy and bright.

It’s also this simplicity that also makes walk-in showers easier to clean. Because they have fewer parts and areas where grime and dirt can accumulate, they reduce the risk of having mold in the corners or a look that’s not pure.

In addition, fewer parts in general means that there are fewer elements that can break and this makes walk-in shower particularly durable. This is also due to the fact that they are made of durable and think materials designed to make them safe to use.

Walk-in showers also offers versatility in terms of design. They can customized in numerous different ways and outfitted with lots of different features, types of doors, etc.

The general structure and design of a walk-in shower is created so that it traps vapors inside. This means there’s less potential damage which can be caused to the walls, especially if they’re made of wood. Also, mold is less likely to appear.

Kitchen Color Schemes for the Modern Home

While most people tend to believe that the living space is the most popular hangout in any home, facts suggest that the honor well and truly goes to the kitchen. The reasons are pretty obvious thanks to the presence of sumptuous delights tantalizing your taste buds, but this also means you need to put in far more thought into what kind of vibe your kitchen exudes.

Modern kitchens can come in a variety of colors schemes and while a total overhaul is only needed once in a decade or so, regular updating and facelifts are a must.

Kitchen Color Trends

Stylish kitchen with glass countertop incorporates several textures

Here is a lovely kitchen that uses simple colors and neutral shades in a stunning fashion by simply adding a vivacious wall colored in purple as part of the kitchen backdrop. Elegant, rich and sophisticated, this design is ideal for those looking to strike a balance between modern minimalism and bold expressiveness and a touch of playfulness.

The smart use of glass creates a rather balanced and beautiful variance in this contemporary setting.

Smart kitchen with touch of yellow

Warm, inviting and calming, the sporadic splattering of yellow in the form of interesting kitchen seating options and the fresh flowers gives this kitchen a unique and effervescent look. Despite using largely subdued shades, the kitchen stands out thanks to these daft little touches and with ample natural ventilation thanks to extensive use of glass, ‘fresh mornings’ is what this kitchen advertises with glee!

30+ Bathroom Storage Hacks And Solutions

Regardless of your bathroom’s size, you’d probably love to have an even bigger bathroom without paying for costly remodeling. Here to help you do that are these brilliant bathroom storage hacks and solutions.

Try them out, and watch your bathroom transform into a spacious spa where everything is neatly organized and within arm’s reach.

If you’ve been hanging on to any old doorknobs, candlesticks, bottle caps, or tissue boxes, now’s the time to bust them out.

1. Build storage shelves into the space between studs

Built-in bathroom wall storage shelves are storing shampoo, conditioner, perfume, bar soap, a handheld mirror, and face towels.
Donna DuFresne Interior Design

Fun fact: The space between wall studs is 16 inches, on average. You’re free to do whatever you please with those extra inches, but the best thing you could do is build a small recessed cabinet for bonus bathroom storage.

Want more awesome built-in storage ideas?

Check out this roundup from Apartment Therapy.

2. Hang baskets on the wall

A Beautiful Mess

As A Beautiful Mess discovered through this DIY project, wire baskets don’t have to sit on your floors or in your closets. In fact, they can make pretty excellent floating shelves for toilet paper and towels.

You just need a few screws, drywall anchors, and washers to anchor them in place. Oh, and a drill would also probably help.

3. Or hang a “wall of baskets”

Simply DIY 2

“Wall of baskets” sounds like a project that could eat up your afternoon, but this Simply DIY 2 idea is actually quite easy.

First, hang two parallel towel bars. Next, cut some ribbon and thread it through your baskets, tying them to the secured bars.

Finally, take whatever bathroom supplies are crowding your cabinets and store them in your four new mini storage units.

4. Rope together a tower of buckets

Glamour

This bathroom storage hack comes from Glamour, so the buckets in question are actually some pretty pastel IKEA FINTORP utensil holders. Once you’ve acquired those, just knot an all-purpose clothesline on the sides so there’s about eight inches between each bucket.

Double-knot the clothesline when you get to the last bucket and cut off the excess portion. Then, hang the finished bathroom storage solution from a simple hook on your wall or door, and toss in your hair straightener, hairspray, makeup brushes, hair brushes, and other beauty supplies.

5. DIY a hair tool organizer

Nellie Bellie

As you already know from our guide to decluttering your bathroom, file organizers and PVC pipes can make excellent hair straightener holsters.

Janel from Nellie Bellie has another great solution for excessive hair tools with her DIY hair tool organizer. It’s essentially a vertical wood plank with aluminum slots, but you also get to customize this one with brightly colored duct tape.

6. Invest in a wrap-around shelf for your pedestal sink

Improvements

Pedestal sinks look super sophisticated, but they barely have enough space to stash a bar of soap. To help your sink live up to its full potential, pick up a curved organizer like this tiered rolling organizer from Bed, Bath & Beyond or this custom-cut cabinet from Improvements.

7. Or dress your pedestal sink in a skirt, and hide baskets behind it

On the more DIY side, you could sew a skirt that matches your bathroom color scheme, attach it to your pedestal sink, and then stow a few storage bins underneath, where no one will ever see them.

8. Stick organizers to the inside of your medicine cabinet

Plitt Original Design Systems

For about $11, you can snap up a 3-pack of StickOnPods, which are small adhesive organizers designed to store Q-tips, nail polish, and more.

Attach the StickOnPods to your medicine cabinet door, and watch your bathroom storage space instantly increase while keeping your cosmetics neat and organized.

9. Convert bottle caps into toothbrush holders

Before you take out your recycling, save a 20L plastic bottle cap. Because once you’ve made a small notch in the cap with a boxcutter and slapped some velcro on its back, you have a new home for your toothbrush.

Hop over to Ohoh Blog for the full instructions.

10. Install an IKEA picture ledge above your sink

Yasam Stil

As HouseBeautiful notes, a slender picture ledge from IKEA can hold more than framed photos. Add one right between your bathroom mirror and sink, and rest your favorite perfume or cologne, hand soap and lotion, scented candle, and hair products on top.

It appears that this bathroom storage hack’s creator, Yasam Stil, went with IKEA’s  MOSSLANDA, but feel free to shop the store’s entire picture ledge collection.

11. Install a divided box above your sink

Itsy Bits and Pieces

If the picture ledge is too slim for your bathroom storage needs, take a cue from Itsy Bits and Pieces and spring for a more substantial slotted box.

12. Make a magnetic makeup storage board

Cosmetics can easily dominate your entire medicine cabinet. But thanks to these instructions from Allie Grace, you can easily dominate DIY-ing a magnetic makeup storage board with just an old picture frame, a metal sheet, fabric of your choice, and a few other common supplies that you probably already have at home.

13. Install a second shower rod in your shower

Don’t have any ledge space for shampoo?

By installing another tension rod inside your shower and then adding hooks, you’ve suddenly got storage space for loofahs, caddies, and even shower caps.

14. Build a recessed shelf in your shower wall

Provided you’re not afraid to get down with a circular saw, carving out a recessed shelf in your shower for storing soap and other toiletries is a very attainable goal. Here’s a handy visual guide from Apartment Therapy.

15. Suction cup shaving cream, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner to your shower wall

Dollar Store Crafts

Out of all the DIY bathroom hacks on this list, this one may be the cheapest and easiest. All you have to do is:

  1. Lace hair ties through and around suction cups.
  2. Stick the suction cups on your shower’s wall.
  3. Slip your shaving cream, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner through the hair ties.

Clearly, it’s called a “dollar store craft” for a reason.

16. DIY a razor holster and attach it to your shower caddy

Pinterest/The Family Handyman

Don’t you just hate it when your razor slips off your shower caddy, lies on the floor, and endangers your feet?

Here’s how to give  your razor a designated and safe storage spot:

  1. Cut a piece of 1-inch-diameter PVC pipe into a 3-inch long piece.
  2. Cut two ⅛-inch wide notches into the pipe.
  3. Strap the pipe to your shower caddy’s side by fastening plastic tie straps around the pipe’s notches.

17. Store bath toys in a hollowed-out step stool

Parents, this one’s for you: Timothy and Laura Dahl of Built by Kids came up with an ingenious step stool that not only helps your toddlers reach the sink, but it also serves as a roosting place for their rubber duckies, ships, and more.

Follow these simple steps to build your own bathroom storage booster.

18. Store shower and beauty products on a cake stand

Has your cake stand been collecting dust because you only bake cakes a few times a year?

Repurpose it into a stylish storage stand for your shower accessories or the hair products you’ve got lying around your sink, just like Cosmopolitan did here.

19. Or DIY your own bathroom supply storage stand

My Unique Home

Don’t actually own a cake stand?

You can quickly DIY one using two plates and a candlestick.

20. Install multiple towel racks on the back of your bathroom door

Martha Stewart

Some people tap out after hanging one towel rack over their door, or sticking up two hooks. But what happens if you need to hang, say, at least five towels?

Be like Martha Stewart, who maximizes storage space on a bathroom door with a towel bar trio.

21. Upcycle an old drawer into a wall-mounted mini storage unit

A drawer from a discarded dresser can be an ideal shelving unit for your bathroom. Clean it up and pretty soon, it could be looking like this Pinterest perfect example.

22. DIY a full-length mirror medicine cabinet

Shanty 2 Chic

If your medicine cabinet just isn’t working for you, no matter how many StickOnPods you use, consider upgrading to this tall (but slim!) mirror storage case from Shanty 2 Chic.

It gives you a full-length mirror (which will save you time getting ready in the morning since you don’t have to run back to your bedroom to check your entire outfit) plus a ton of storage shelves.

And with the right wood stain, it looks catalog-ready.

23. Store your body wash, face scrub, shampoo, conditioner, and more like shoes

Camping World

Have a ton of bath products that, despite you already knowing how to organize everything in your apartment, can’t seem to find a home?

Solve that by hanging a plastic shoe organizer on the inside of your shower curtain.

If the traditional 24 pockets seems a bit much, you can find a smaller organizer with just six pockets from Camping World.

24. Make a space-saving towel rack out of rope

On My Honor

Some towel racks take up too much real estate in your bathroom. But definitely not this one.

Using just three eye bolts and a rope, On My Honor created this space-saving towel rack that lays almost completely flat against the wall while giving your bathroom a nice rugged look.

25. Or use an old wine rack to store towels

Ki Nassauer Style

This bathroom storage hack is so genius yet obvious that you’ll be mad Ki Nassauer beat you to the punch. For this towel rack, you’ll need two wooden hangers and two dowels.

First, anchor the dowels to the wall. Then, screw the hangers  — make sure they’re upside down — into the dowels and you’re all set.

You can now hang your big towels from the hangers’ inverted hooks and your hand towels from the hangers’ flat bases at the top. Genius? Genius.

29. Introduce your bathroom counter to a Lazy Susan

InfoBarrel

Provided you have enough counter space for it, a Lazy Susan is a great place to store the grooming products you use everyday. And since they’re all together on one revolving stand, you just got back the time you sometimes waste in the morning rifling through your cabinets.

For even more counter space-spacing power, pick up a Cosmetic Organizing Carousel from Nifty Home Products. It’s like a Lazy Susan on steroids but without the dangerous side effects.

34. Buy a strategically skinny bathroom floor cabinet

If you’re forced to shop for a slender cabinet due to size constraints, be smart about it.

Look for one with shelves that give you a deceptive amount of storage space, and maybe even a secret compartment on top.

Our top pick: the 22.75” x 6.25” free standing cabinet by Proman Products.

Not sure what houseplant is right for you?

Check out our guide for choosing the best houseplants and planters for your apartment.

37. Store your plastic bags in a tissue box

Trusper/Laura

This is one the best bathroom organization hacks for anyone who saves plastic bags and uses them to line his/her trash can.

Rather than let the bags scatter and overtake the space under your sink, bunch them all up into a recycled tissue box. Doing so not only keeps them organized, but it also dispenses a new bag one at a time.

Bonus points for attaching it to the inside of your bathroom cabinet, like how Melissa George from Polished Habitat did with one of her kitchen cabinets:

38. Store backup TP in a revamped oatmeal canister

However, with a few handy tips from Practically Functional, you can upcycle an old oatmeal canister into a colorful TP container that you can tuck into a corner or on top of your John’s tank for fast access.

39. Suspend extra rolls with a fabric holder

Make It & Love It

The first advantage to this fabric Make It & Love It TP roll holder? It hangs extra rolls that would otherwise claim cabinet or basket space against your bathroom wall.

The second advantage? It places those rolls right under the existing one for quick and easy switches.

40. Store magazines on a hanger

a hanger as a newspaper and magazine holder is one of many easy bathroom storage hacks
Better Homes and Gardens

If you’re into the “old school newspaper rack” style, layer your magazines and other preferred bathroom literature on a hanger and place it on the most convenient knob of your bathroom cabinet.

41. Store stuff in the sides of your tub

Cool Things

A couple years ago, this revolutionary bathtub with opening panels set the Internet on fire.

Unfortunately, the so-called Stowaway isn’t for sale, but if you’re feeling incredibly ambitious, you can try adjusting your bath panels yourself. Maybe just consult your plumber or YO Home!’s designer first.
