What Houzz contributors are saying:
Rethink traditional positionsThis is an interesting idea for a small-ish bathroom where you want both a bath and a shower. Here, building in a conventional cubicle would have been tricky without losing the bath, but by positioning a frameless screen strategically – enclosing both tub and shower – the space has been used extremely economically. Your floor in this context will almost certainly need to be fitted as it would do in a wet room, so ensure your contractor is tanking it and installing suitable floor drainage.

Sharing is caringChoosing a new bath? When deciding on the size and type of tub, the top feature was a surprisingly social one: 22% of people buying a bath specified there had to be room for two. A non-slip floor and grab bars were the second and third, rather more practical, requests.
…Or think outside the box – as the owners of this compact but multi-functional bathroom have – and you might yet find room for a shower and separate bath. Look closely and you’ll see the shower turns the far end of the bathroom into a wet room, with a screen separating it from the rest of the room. Clever.
