The units can be stacked or connected to produce various shelving arrangements.
Sleep on a Pedestal (Bedroom)
Another idea would be to get your interior designer (ID) is to build a bed frame in either a master bedroom, or any other bedroom.
The bed frame incorporates hidden storage compartments which is ideal for smaller homes. The extra wood and huge frame give it an overall cosy and luxurious feel.
This feature allows for side drawers and bottom cabinets, which contribute to additional storage and convenient access to items.
The result is a room that has a tranquil, relaxing overall vibe and you feel as if you are sleeping on a pedestal, casually feeding into your ego.
Do up a Made up or Vanity Table (Bedroom)

Furthermore, the white furniture, together with the velvet cushion and vintage stool work together to bring a posh feel to the room. The wide range of drawers help tremendously in avoiding things piling up over your bedside tables as well.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall (Bathroom)
Cinderella probably had it good, because not only do mirrors reflect light, they also reflect the view, thereby tricking the eye into perceiving more space. This trick is widely used in restaurants and hotel rooms as well.
The logic of white walls also works in a similar fashion, we all know of white’s reflective qualities. It opens up a room, making it feel airy and light, calm and serene.
Painting the walls and ceiling the same shade of white only enhances this cloud-like effect. And it serves to blur the boundaries between wall and ceiling, causing your eye to travel up, essentially making the ceiling seem higher
