Burnt Coral, Gray and White Bedroom in HGTV Smart Home 2013 (www.hgtv.com/...)
Active children often need their rooms reoriented as their choice of activities change. To make life easier for Mom, Dad and the little one, choose furniture on casters. This comes in handy for moving things around quickly and easily.
As kids grow, their taste in activities changes. To ensure the most bang for your buck when choosing furniture, always consider multipurpose pieces. This grassy-green steel occasional table is currently being used as a side table between two armless chairs, yet it was built for use as a stool.
Lighting a shower area can be tricky — one rule to follow: only use fixtures that are rated for use in damp or wet locations. The three nautical clam-shell style lights along the back wall of this HGTV Dream Home shower are a good example. The bulbs and all electrical components are totally enclosed so moisture isn't an issue.
To add longevity to a room's design, consider using a daybed. Twin mattresses turned parallel to the wall save valuable space in the room and allow beds to double as lounges. During tween and teen years, lounge spaces quickly become the best hangout spots in the house.

The walls of this California powder room are covered with hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper. The bubbly, Italian glass antique sconces and the frosted glass tap handles extend the watery theme of the fish wallpaper. Design by Katie Ridder; photo by Eric Paisecki
