You don’t have to live in a small home or apartment to appreciate space saving furniture. Indeed, there is a certain kind of beauty to furniture that is cleverly designed to be both attractive and practical all at once. The space under a bed has always been a spot where people store things, so it is only natural that someone came up with the idea of integrating drawers within the bed frame.
Two examples – I like the top one because of its simple, clean design:

If you want to add storage space to your bathroom, you have basically two options: adding a stand-alone floor-standing piece of furniture, or mounting a shelving unit to the wall. Both will provide you with shelving that you can use for bath products, toiletries and small towels. The advantage of the floor-standing models is that there is no mounting involved. You may have to do some assembling though, depending on the model.
I like the simple look of both of these, and I especially like the curved detail on the white one:

It seems we can always use more storage. At the office, supplies and papers accumulate over the years, and the same is true of books, DVD’s and other items at home. If this is the case for you, it may be time to get an extra storage cabinet. One that will suit your storage needs, while still fitting into your decor. Black may be a good color in that respect, since it is neutral.
I like the clean and basic look of these two models:
