3. Consider whether you can fit in a bath and a shower. If you don’t have the space for a separate bath and shower, consider installing a shower over the bathtub so that both functions take place in the same spot. In this scenario, you would, of course, need space to fit a bathtub, so a square or a wide rectangular room, rather than a very narrow one, is best. You’ll need one wall to be at least 5 feet long, which is the length of a standard-size tub. Tip: Bathtubs with showers are often fitted with a glass screen to prevent water from spilling out. But this can make it awkward to get in and out of the tub. To make it easier, choose a screen on a hinge that you can pivot outward. If the screen is fixed, be sure to install faucets on the wall opposite it. Otherwise, you will have to maneuver awkwardly around the screen every time you turn on the faucets.No Need to Compromise on Style With a Shower-Tub Combo

The other option is to combine the shower and the bath, which is cheaper and more practical. This layout may not feel as luxurious as a walk-in shower, but if you opt for a frameless glass screen, you will achieve a similar contemporary look that will maximize the sense of space and light.
