  1. Trim Curtains

    Hide

    Short shower curtains look tidy and tailored, and they don't trap dust and moisture. To create the look in your bathroom, cut a fabric curtain 2 inches longer than the desired length, then fold and sew a 2-inch hem. Leave the plastic liner hanging full-length in the tub to contain water from the shower.

  2. One Last Look

    Hide

    Two full-length mirrors hidden inside the doors (plus a third along the unit's back wall) provide a tailor's multiview reflection. This area houses items typically donned just before leaving -- shoes, ties, belts, and watches.

  3. This End Up

    Hide

    Tame your T-shirts by folding them into thirds and arranging them folded-end up in the drawer, rather than flat (this is an overhead view). Metal bookends, painted blue and outfitted with rubber surface protectors, hold the shirts upright, letting you see each one.

  4. Put Reminders by the Door

    Hide

    Eliminate stray notes and pieces of paper by writing important to-do tasks on an erasable board near the door. Adding a painted wooden picture frame upgrades the standard message board; below it, a "hot box" -- a mesh bin set off by a colorful painted square -- helps you remember cameras, cell phones, and any other small equipment you may need to take with you.

  5. Leather Stone-Shaped Blotter

    Hide

    Personalize your desk with a free-form stone-shaped blotter; it's a great way to protect the surface or to designate a writing area. Plus it takes just minutes to make: Outline the shape you want on the back of the leather, and cut it out with heavy-duty scissors.
