Like the pocket door idea do you? Good design, since you have limited space I say use all you can squeeze out of it.

You could put some upper cabinets above the vanity, there is never enough storage space in most all washrooms.

If you go with your last sketch, what would you do at the other end of the tub? A wall? If so, it might look awkward. You walk into the room and smack into a wall?
If you have room somewhere in the house, get some cheap masking tape and tape it all out to full scale. What looks good on paper doesn't always transfer into the real world.

Forgot to add to my first post: If you go with the tub on the wall with the window, that window will be a problem. I'd give serious thought to replacing the window. If it is going to be in the shower go with one that is a lot higher so water won't hit it, because that will be a weak point for water damage.

When you slide the door open to the left, you will have about 26" of space before you see the tub (no wall at all.. imagine alcove tub with 1 wall missing). as you walk in, to the left of you (in that 23 1/2" deep space might be a shelving unit to hold towels)

It's very "open concept" in that the tub is there, but it's only 22" off the ground, and the rest all open. No 1/2 or 1/3 height walls at all.

We're considering either a 41" long glass shield to between shower head and toilet but the rest open .. or glass shield + solid glass piece acting as the 2nd wall on the tub.

According to tub store, all this can be accomplished by using drop-in tub with flange kit on the 2 walls + tile around tub.

You asked about the space between tub and vanity , it all depends on the need for hip space, if you plan to have more than one occupant at a time, getting ready for school, work or not. as well as a need for handicap equipment, many things to consider.

Most important is to please whomever is the boss.

As for the fill spout and shower head in the middle of the tub instead of the end. think rain head shower. with the controls on the side is a high end classy thing to do.

I understand some people have a rain head shower that protrudes almost to the middle of the tub/shower.. but they always seem to start at the same end as the drain hole .. never the long wall. Has anyone seen / is it acceptable to have shower head/fill spout come out in the middle of the tub, on the long end?
