A double vanity makes this bath comfortable for two. Also, the tub is deeper than average. While 5-foot tubs are easy to come by, deeper tubs can be harder to find. If you intend to use it primarily for taking showers, a shallower tub might be best. But if you intend to use the tub frequently, you might want a deeper one for better soaking.
Drop-in tubs like this one can work in a standard configuration with three enclosing walls. Since they don’t have an apron front, you can finish the face of the tub with tile, as has been done in this bath. Also, the architect has installed a ready-made medicine cabinet, but had small shelves and trim built around it to add a custom and sophisticated detail. The depth of medicine cabinets needs to be 4 to 5 inches (10 to 13 centimeters) overall and 3½ to 4½ inches (9 to 11 centimeters) on the interior shelves to suit most people. Widths and heights depend on the individual, but most prebuilt medicine cabinets are about 18 inches (46 centimeters) wide and 30 inches (76 centimeters) tall.
This vintage small bathroom utilized bead board paneling, a light taupe color and something all small bathrooms need; a pedestal sink.
Should you choose to have a glass enclosure, as in this bath, consider how high you would like to have the glass reach. Showers that have a steam function need to be completely enclosed, as seen here. Otherwise, the top of the glass should reach at least 76 inches (193 centimeters) above the floor. You may want to coordinate the height with the tiles or other wall finishes, or with the height of the windows and doors in the room.
