IN THE PAST YEAR, THE KITCHEN has taken on a bigger role than we ever could have imagined. In many homes, the kitchen—or neighboring breakfast table—has morphed into a de facto home office, complete with laptops, charging cords, and piles of paperwork.

Choose a carefully proportioned vanity that is wall-mounted or has cabinet legs in lieu of a toe-kick to increase the visible floor area. Likewise, wall-hung toilets free up a lot of space and are more aesthetically pleasing. Create a window effect with a large shower niche and tile it with a bold pattern.
