A curving wall of glass block and a corner jetted-tub installation are the keys to the layout of this 12 X 9-ft. bath. The tub surround is cleverly extended into the shower, where it forms a triangular seat. A couple of space-saving tricks make the most of the area: The entry to the room is through a pocket door rather than through a standard hinged model; similarly, the doorless shower (sometimes called a "walk-behind" design) frees up valuable floor space in the middle of the room.
The con or downside of a claw foot tub to tub/shower conversion When the unit was first installed, we were quite thrilled at how well the shower worked. Seventeen years later, I’ve lost a little of my enthusiasm for the following 5 reasons. Con #1: The rim of a clawfoot tub is approximately 23″ to the floor, which is a bit of a climb for an older person. While getting into the tub isn’t that much of problem, it’s getting out of the tub that worries me. Stepping out of a wet tub onto a wet floor from a height of nearly two feet is an accident waiting to happen. Once hubby and I hit our 70s, I can see the need for a goofy looking, non historically accurate handle bar being glued to the edge to keep us from hitting the ground and breaking a hip.
