We thought we'd open things up with an ofuro, a Japanese soaking tub. Obviously luxurious, these super deep tubs work in many bathrooms because they are also compact. Intended for a long soak with a built-in bench, ofuros are designed for relaxation. Traditionally made of wood, this modern version in stainless steel looks especially wonderful with the rustic wall treatment and river rock flooring. Enough dreaming - the reality of bathrooms beckons. Here at Apartment Therapy we want the goods from our readers. For a small space, bathroom renovation is expensive. Let's help each other out and share the wealth. We are looking for tips, finds, sources and shops. For the month of April, our focus will guide us through towels, fixtures, and flooring, as well as the big tickets, like tubs and tile work - don't make us go it alone - comment away!
