    Hi,

    The missis found this pic online <sigh> and so I'm now considering the possibility of a wetroom type shower right next to the bath.

    Biggest concern would be water getting through the side of the bath. I was thinking waterproof tile backer board pushed under the lip of the bath and also the wetroom shower tray going 30mm under the bath then all tiled over.

    Is this just a bad idea?

    Advice/tips much appreciated

    A nightmare to clean!
    Splashes everywhere, bath needs cleaning even if not used.
    Tell the mrs it can't be done.

    If extra cleaning is the only drawback I'll go ahead...its the missis that does the bathroom :)

    That pic shows a solution for a narrow bathroom so that a separate bath and shower can be fitted.

    In practical terms it's terrible like johnny107 says you would be forever cleaning the bath every time you shower

    What about if you need access under the bath too?

    And I wouldn't want to have to do any work on those bath taps too.....

    Tell your Mrs this and it might put her off! Or inflate the cost!

    The cleaning is a fair point but we have the shower in the bath at the moment so it won't be any worse than now. Due to the shape of the bathroom (no spare corners) this is the only way we can have a walk in shower with seperate bath.

    Access would be impossible once done which is a big concern. Just have to make sure its done right first time!

    You don't need a corner to install a shower.....

    Any chance of having a bird's eye view of proposed layout (I'm nosey)

    Layout is the same as in the pic except the sink will go opposite the toilet (ours is a little wider than the pic bathroom)
