I guess that would depend on the layout and draughty-ness of the room.
If you've got a draughty bathroom, then any shower that is not
shielded from the draught will, by default, be draughty.
You want it nice n cosy? Shower with a friend.
that is true. if there's no way to keep the increased humidity and warmth
from the water, it will take a long time to make the shower area warm unless
you go for things like a heated floor and hot air blowers.
We have a walk-in shower which isn't drafty at all. I once had a tub
shower that was horribly drafty, but it drew air from under the door to
the bathroom. Our shower curtain rod is only about 6" from top of
opening, so there isn't much room for air to circulate into the shower.
Now, I should mention I live in Florida and room air here is rarely
below 75, normally closer to 80. Depends a bit how the room is arranged
and when air warms in the shower, air temp in adjoining room, where does
it pull from and is there room for a lot of circulation.
