Clutter, leaky bathroom fixtures, loose and dirty tiles, and waterproofing problems are just some of the common loo mishaps that happen inside our homes. But there is a way to avoid all of these with Real Living’s tips to creating a dream bathroom minus the setback.

According to Real Living Associate Publisher Tom Castañeda, “Most people tend to neglect their bathrooms when designing the overall look of their home, mainly due to the size of the space. But the bathroom, considered by experts to be the most important room in a home, can be more than practical.”

So, is it a tub or a shower? In its March issue, Real Living creates the ultimate guide to choosing your bathroom fittings, such as your basin, tiles and water closets, which will aid you in putting together the kind of bathroom that you’ve always wanted.

“With the right design, lighting and fixtures, it can be a place to relax and escape the world. And, Real Living’s special Bed & Bath special is the perfect tool to help you convert your comfort room into a sanctuary, complete with editor and expert picks for best basins, shower fixtures and water closets on the market today. But be warned! Incorporating them into the design of your space may result in never wanting to leave the comfort of your bathroom!” Castañeda adds.

In its "Real Homes" section, Real Living gives us a tour of five casual-chic homes from a family’s cool, halfway-home-condo to an eco-conscious loft. Each featured home provides insights on how to personalize one’s space and turn it into an amazing and unique abode. Take cues from a makeup artist with a fascination for flea market finds and pop divas, and a children’s book author who loves Filipino art and travel souvenirs.

Real Living Editor In Chief Rachelle Medina shares, “This month’s "Real Homes" section is all about personalized spaces. In this issue, we’ve got three condo homes, one townhouse, and one duplex, and none of them look like cookie-cutter model units at all! From an architect mother’s mid-century-modern-style halfway house and a makeup maven’s glamorous Fort condo, to a writer’s traditional-with-a-twist town home to a quirky apartment, these homeowners all show us that when coming up with a highly individual space, personal expression and casual comfort always come first.”
