Start with a theme, even in a small bathroom. Robin LaMonte, owner of Rooms Revamped Interior Design, continued the travel motif from a nearby bonus room into this bathroom, by using framed photos of planes and a faux propeller from a discount home decor store.

While grasscloth can be expensive, you can find it at a discount if you look around -- this one was $45 for a roll and more than half off the usual price, she says.
Tyler custom-ordered the ladder through the contractor, Frawley Construction, as a clever way to access the upper bunk.
