Putting a tub in the shower may seems a unexpected idea, but if you think about how many times the kids were playing with water and then you had to clean all the water around the tub isn’t so crazy at all. Or even, when you in future could have some troubles climbing a tub.
Save space, cleanup time and maybe even a little money with a shower-bathtub combo.
As beautiful as this design solution looks, there are plenty of risks — particularly with waterproofing — so be sure to discuss something like this in detail with your contractor or builder.
If this modern tub were a tub shower, it’d be pretty difficult to waterproof because it’s designed as an under mount tub. Clean-lined tubs like this usually don’t have edging that connects the tub with the wall’s waterproofing. Placing the tub inside the shower means the entire area is waterproofed, and it actually simplifies the room’s design.
Kiev, Ukranian freelance architectural visualizer Oleg Suzdalev shows his creation by day and by night. Showering takes place standing on a wooden floor (today’s wood finishes make this possible where wood could not be exposed to so much water decades ago) enclosed in a nearly invisible glass booth. Still on this smooth, warm surface, one can walk to the bath, but from the front it appears to be surrounded by rocks, naturally rounded by the action of water and sand.
