Do you love having a bath but fear your bathroom is a little too small to incorporate a tub? According to QS Supplies, 44 out of 50 American states prefer having a bath rather than a shower, so if you do have a small space, making sure to fit a bath in will no doubt be an important consideration. There are lots of options to ensure you don't have to forgo your beloved bath time, and according to MasterClass, there are eight different types of bathtubs you can review. Unfortunately, some tubs are unsuitable for small bathrooms, but thankfully some, such as the soaking bathtub and the walk-in bathtub, would be perfect for small square footage.
One way of making sure you can fit a tub into your compact washroom is to have your shower and bath combined. Rather than having a shower tray or cubicle, have a tub with a shower unit installed above it, with either a glass screen or a shower curtain to protect the room from getting soaked at shower time. Below are 20 examples that prove you can install a tub even if your bathroom is small. Resin Shower Pan
