Bathroom Trend: A Tub Inside The Shower

This past year multiple clients requested something for their bath that I had never heard of before: putting the tub inside of the shower. And by this, they meant they want one glass-enclosed 'wet room' for bathing and showering. This configuration has an airy spa-like feel and look, and takes up less space than designing separate tub and showering areas.

Often, for smaller spaces, clients have to choose between a tub or a shower. But with this design, we're often able to fit both in their bathroom. They also like the family-friendly nature of the arrangement — that kids can take splashy baths without the concern of getting water elsewhere in the room, so cleanup is easy.

Do you like the look? Is this a design trend you'd try?
