Our master bath is grossly oversized,  It could literally be three feet narrower and lose nothing except empty floor space.  So "more space efficient" would be desirable.

Things we especially like about our bathroom:
--toilet in its own room
--plenty of light

Other things I wish were different:
--we have a 6' garden tub, but it's not deep enough to actually soak in (seriously, who designs these things?!)
--glass shower walls + hard water = bad idea.
--I want a walk-around shower, tiled from floor to ceiling, with alcoves for soap/shampoo/etc
--linen closet NOT in the toilet room
--there's more counter space than we need--two sinks, and about 10' total counter space.
--shower is 36x48.  I wish it were just a bit larger.

We finally got round to renovating a '70s bathroom that was originally light-grey tiled round a bright pink bath + sink + toilet with a separate 760 mm x 760 mm shower cubicle with a shower curtain. I shudder to think how we put up with for so long.

We chose:

1) White bath + sink + toilet (so that they did not "date" as horribly as the pink stuff did)
    with both sink and toilet hung from the wall for easy cleaning.

2) Neutral tiles floor and walls (no under-floor heating).

3) Combined towel-rail and radiator.

4) LED lighting, some user-controlled and some under PIR "occupancy" sensor control.

5) 1200 mm x 900 mm (approx 4' x 3') low threshold 2-person walk-in shower
    with all glass enclosure with wide-opening double door.

Actually picture(s) make this description so much easier.

We did all the work except for the actual tiling ourselves.
The room was stripped back to joists and wooden stud-work
and then new plywood floor and then everything overboarded with cement-board

We do not intend to renovate this room again - ever!
