We all dream of spacious bathrooms with a spa-like tub for soaking, but the reality is, we mostly live in condo units and small homes with only a tiny shower stall (usually one meter square, or smaller!) for our daily ablutions. What to do? Get creative with these ideas from our Real Homes:

Go for urban angles


In his condo bathroom, Marco Misa Torres chose a simple, frameless glass shower enclosure, and opted for angular, clean-lined toilet fixtures and fittings to match the sleek, urban feel of his unit.
