Installing a heat lamp and radiant heat bathroom flooring can offset the shivers. Mount a heated towel rack nearby, and you'll be extra toasty as you dry off. Choose an appropriate showerhead. Unless you have a very large buffer zone, a standard showerhead that angles outward can end up soaking your space. Opt for a rain‐style model, which casts water straight down, or a handheld type that allows you to control the position and flow. If you do use a more conventional model, mount it so that the spray hits an opposite wall rather than the shower opening.

The first time I saw a really fun kids' bed was in the 1980s, on the show Silver Spoons, starring a very young Ricky Schroder and Jason Bateman. Little Ricky's bed was a white racecar, and every kid wanted one (we also wanted that train he rode around the manse). Today the racecars have been upgraded to high‐end Ferrari models, and other thematic beds have followed suit, from boats to wrestling rings. See if you can find one that might ease your time‐for‐bed struggles. A small car is a great transitional bed between crib and big‐boy bed (perhaps a future Ferrari). I am sounding sexist; of course a car can inspire your little Danica Patrick or Lella Lombardi wannabes too. Have fun with the bed and let it inspire the rest of the room.

Secret treehouse fort meets sleepy time in these tucked‐away bunk beds.

Similar to a rectangular dining table, the oval dining table is elongated to work in a narrow room but visually seems to occupy less space because of its rounded corners. Oval tables also have the benefits of a round table in that they provide a cozy and intimate setting but can usually seat more people.
