A Quick Splash vs a Lingering Soak
Having a separate shower stall in your bathroom allows two people to clean themselves at the same time and gives you the option of a quick rinse or a long soak in your tub if you choose.
If your bathroom is small then you must decide which is more important, either a bath tub, a combination bath-shower unit or if all you ever need is a quick clean, then a walk-in shower stall without a tub will do quite nicely.
Having a tiny bathroom does not necessarily mean that the jig is up. If your mind is set on having a split bathing and showering area then there is still hope for your dream to come true.
Unfortunately it involves a big sledge hammer; all you have to do is knock out space from an adjacent closet or storage area to expand your bathroom and create your new shower enclosure.
The good part about having two separate washing areas is that you don’t need to have shower curtains around your bathtub, given that this takes away from the ambiance of the whole soaking experience anyway.
For Less Mobile Bathers
The less mobile family members will appreciate a separate step-in shower stall, since this means they don’t have to lift themselves into a bathtub in order to clean themselves. Another excellent motive is that you can take a quick rinse before or after that sumptuous soak in your luxurious bathtub.
While having a separate shower stall in master bathroom suites is all the rave these days, another vogue thing that people are now wanting is a separate his and her shower.
No matter where you place your shower stall in your bathroom layout, it’s always good to remember about your minimum clearances so you have plenty of room for drying off and access to nearby towels.
Also the smallest usable shower enclosure should be no smaller than thirty-four inches square inside, unless you really like small spaces. Another consideration is lots of natural light for grooming and simply just enjoying the day when you soak in your tub.
