For a classic, masculine spin, wooden taxidermy was made for the boys' room by tracing shapes to two-inch-thick cedar planks with a pencil, then cutting them out with a jigsaw, sanding and then adding a whitewashed finish for a clean look. Picture hanging wire is attached to the back for easy, level installation.

Vinyl plank flooring is an excellent alternative to engineered or laminate wood. The cost-effective product is usually less than $1.50 per square foot and simply requires a utility knife for installation. First, measure the surface of the bathroom floor, adding roughly 5 percent to account for waste. Next, pick up the product from your local home improvement store, keeping in mind what finishes are best in regard to the room's traffic. Medium gray tones are excellent for children's spaces used daily since the neutral color aids in hiding dust and flaws. To install the vinyl plank, cut each strip to size with a utility knife, then lay each plank side-by-side, cutting away excess.
Shabby chic and serene is the theme of this guest bedroom with its white plank wall, star-shaped wall art and ruffled bed. The black and crystal chandelier and pops of robin's egg blue in the bedding and end lamp add a subdued element of glamour to the space.
