Soaking Tub Shower Combo Ideas

Nothing beats the convenience of a shower and the aesthetic appeal and comfort of a spacious soaking tub.

A soaking tub shower combo is the key to creating a functional and luxurious spa-like bathroom.

There are many layout options to choose from if you want to incorporate both a soaking tub and shower into your bathroom design.


Freestanding Soaking Tub Next to Walk-In Shower

Because many soaking tub models are freestanding, some homeowners may choose a separate soaking tub and shower for their bathroom. A freestanding soaking tub may be installed next to a walk-in shower. However, this design option requires a medium-to-large bathroom with ample space for separate shower and tub fixtures.

Freestanding Soaking Tub in Walk-In Shower

A freestanding soaking tub can also be installed in a large walk-in shower or shower room. This design option can help transform your bathroom into a stunning spa-like oasis.

Clawfoot Soaking Tub Inside Shower

Clawfoot tubs are one of the most popular types of freestanding soaking tubs. Create a modern look in your bathroom with a touch of traditional charm by adding an elegant clawfoot tub to a walk-in shower enclosure or glass-enclosed wet area.

Freestanding Tub in Wet Room

A bathroom wet room is a waterproof shower area with floor drain that often features both a luxury freestanding tub and rain shower system. The floor of a wet room has a slight gradient so water flows to the drain and not the rest of the space.

A wet room is usually curbless or has a low-curb entrance.  A pony wall or partial glass enclosure is often used to separate a wet room from the rest of the bathroom. This helps create an open, spacious, and seamless bathroom design.

Japanese Soaking Tub / Shower

Japanese soaking tubs, aka Ofuro soaking tubs, are very deep small tubs traditionally made from cedar or cypress wood. Installing a rainfall shower head over a Japanese tub or other round soaking tub with deep bathing well can help create a zen spa-like bathing area in your bathroom.

By installing an extra-deep drop-in tub and shower combo in your bathroom, you can enjoy a relaxing spa-like bathing experience (that doesn’t require a ton of space).

Walk-In Bathtub / Shower Combo

A MediTub shower enclosure can be used to transform a MediTub walk-in soaker tub with seat into an accessible shower tub combo. A deep walk-in bathtub that features a shower enclosure also makes a great soaker tub and shower combo for smaller bathrooms.
