Question - Hi, Can you please explain how the water doesn't come out of the shower area to the rest of the bathroom. Is the partial glass partition enough to prevent that or do you have to slant the shower floor area towards the drain. Thanks

This particular bathroom has what is called a 'wet room' There is a partial glass wall that separates the shower area and the tub from the rest of the bathroom. In some situations a small amount of over-splash can get on the floor at the opening to the glass, similar to what happens with regular showers from water drip when the door opens. We have used partial glass dividers in a regular tub/shower area, and it works best when a hand-held pole mount shower is in use. It isn't for everyone.

I have used this application in several bathrooms and my clients who used it don't regret it. I agree with John, they say that sometimes water might splash out but nothing out of the normal!

Window in bathtub/shower area. I've been told that is not a good idea, although, I like the light. - Redoing 1950's small (about 5 x 8)bath and removing the tub. There is a window on the 5' wall. Isn't this a problem with a shower and moisture?

It really depends on your usage. As you can see in this bath, the window is at the tub, not near the shower in the foreground. If there isn't going to be direct spray, it is usually fine and easy to maintain. I wouldn't do this if the tub and shower were one unit.

I recently inherited my father's home when he passed away. The home is quite old. I think built in the 20-30's. My Father put in a "make shift" bathroom/shower, and the shower was intended for a mobile home (think CAMPER!) SO I have been searching for a BATHtub/shower alternative, but it has to be quite smal. This appears to be about right, judging by the # of tiles...This looks like it would work! :)

Can this style bathroom be used upstairs on the second story? - I am building a home and in the process of finalizing the designs, I was wanting to use this for the upstairs as a kids bathroom. I have been researching and I have read from many people that this style bathroom should be on a slab foundation, I am concerned this will not work upstairs?

I actually think this is very cool, and I can't think of any reason why this couldn't be on a second floor as long as you have adequate drainage.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 8 Ways to Design a Better Shower
7. Consider an open shower. You want a separate shower and tub but you only have a narrow, tight space. Consider an "open shower" that places the tub after the shower, as shown here.
