Distance between glass enclosed shower and free standing tub


I am installing a separate glass shower and free standing tub. I'm leaning toward using a pre-made shower base to avoid the possibility of leaks.

What do you guys think is the minimum distance between tub edge and shower edge?

I'm looking at installing a 59" tub and a 36" wide shower in usable space of 99". That leaves 4" of space. Some of that will be used by tile installation.

The length of the space is 108" but 9" are eaten up by a air vent column. So 108 - 9 - 59 - 36 = 4". That doesn't include tile on the walls.

You are going to have a heck of a time cleaning in that space, And it creates a perfect area to have things drop into and get lost in there.

Maybe block it off, or create a small storage cubby with pull out shelving to use it for something.

The top edge to edge would be 59" but the bottom edge to edge (basin length) would be 39.

Good call on cleaning... didn't even think about that.

Re: Distance between glass enclosed shower and free standing tub


First allow me to say I'm envious of your bath layout. To me it looks great and well thought out.

But being I don't know the details or dimensions of the shower door, I was wondering if there would be any interference between it and the toilet at the 26-1/4" distance. Sometimes those things are easily overlooked and we wouldn't want to see the solution some supposedly incorporate and put in the joke sections of forums.

When that project is in progress and final completion we would sure like for jake to show and tell.

OH, BTW, I'm a much better copier than designer and I'd like to copy that drawing. That's how I passed 3rd grade.

Whoa that's a great point!!! I just started looking at doors and hadn't even considered that.

Thanks
