We're planning our new home and we're considering some different layouts for
a bathroom. One of the more creative ones is to create a tiled shower with
glass surround, possibly 6'x10', and install a bathtub inside at the end.
We've tried googling for some examples, but all we keep finding are the
usual bathtub/shower combinations found in most homes.
Is there a name for that configuration? Any suggestions on finding some
Sounds nice to me, even though I live alone. I'd add a hose bib on one
wall, and make sure the floor drain was big enough so I could just scrub
the whole room with a hose and a mop. Great for bathing kids, cuz they
splash everywhere. And even after a soaking bath, nice to be able to
rinse off the soap scum without waiting for tub to drain.
Thanks. That's pretty much why we'd like to have something like this... It
also give you more shower room instead of having the usual tiny shower
It sounds expensive, but it's a lot cheaper than trying to retrofit one into
an existing bathroom later.
Use the search term "shower +room +tub" without the quotes.
I have not seen exactly what you want but locally, I have seen a couple of
residential multi-head shower rooms large enough for 6.
These were just walk in rooms no doors or curtains. I can't imagine
cleaning the darn thing. A tub over in the corner would not have been out

Not ostentatious at all. After all, travel trailer showers use this
concept. The idea of a large wet area centrally drained is used all
the time to save money and space. I've seen the application used in
low-end bath designs as well as high-end bath designs. The most
important thing to address is waterproofing. I suggest finding a
qualified designer that can detail (design) the proper layout (tub,
shower, etc), waterproofing & materials. I wouldn't expect to find
many how-to's for this on google. You can follow this link to see an
example. It's a bed/breakfast photo or advertisement, not a how-to.
1 - Remove the table in the corner and install a shower head and tiled
floor in that area.
2 - Sink a Hot Tub into the floor where the rug is.
Now that would be a sweet set up!
