What is the minimum measurement you require to have a bath tub and seperate shower as in the photo. Or have a shower and bath at right angles to each other (ie. forming an L shape) what would minimum dimension have to be?

Depends entirely on the size of tub you wish to use, if you want a deck around it like this one or can live without one, and what size shower you're willing to live with. I've stayed in suites aboard ships where the tub was 5' long and the adjacent shower was 2' square (which is kinda like showering in a phone booth) so that could be just about the minimum, but it's rather pointless to go that small for a bathroom ashore...

It's much easier to start with the size and configuration of your space and design for that.

Bepsf is right - it ultimately depends on your overall square footage. What you wouldn't want to do is decrease walkways and crowd the bath. There's also a number of things to consider when designing a tub deck. You'll need space for your tub filler and room to operate the handles. If space is tight, depending on the size of the brim you have on a drop in tub, you can mount your filler directly onto the tub. Be careful to make sure the barrel of your faucet is smaller than your brim. You want to also be sure to have a place to set down a bottle of shampoo and soap. In this particular photo we used a drop-in/deck-mounted tub, the brim of which takes up some of the deck space. We needed to be sure to leave ample room around all 4 sides. Under-mounting a tub usually means a bit more room and is easier to clean. If space is available the tub deck can be incorporated into the shower area (as in the photo) to create either a ledge for product or even a bench seat. Master bath tubs start around 60x32. These are close to hall bathroom tub size and get larger from there. I usually prefer a 66" tub in a bath. As for the shower, if you can custom size it and not be restricted to standard pan sizes, then I like to be able to get at least 48x36.

This might be one of my very favorites--I like the design of the shower/tub, the color scheme, the pattern in the tile and the lighting. this is a fantastic model of what Id love to do in my price range.
