In a recent article on Houzz, Vancouver based general contractor, John Whipple, discussed the emergence of an interesting new trend in bathroom remodeling -- installing tubs in showers. This unusual take on the traditional bathroom renovation can save space and the hassles of clean-up and water damage among many other things.

Check out this excerpt from Whipple's article below.

Why to Put Your Tub in the Shower

Save space, cleanup time and maybe even a little money with a shower-bathtub combo. These examples show how to do it right.

"Putting your bathtub in the shower may be an unexpected idea, but it's a solid one and a growing trend in bathroom design. 

Sure, it looks great, but what does it mean from a practical standpoint? For one, kids (and grown-ups) can splash all they want in the tub without having to worry about water damage or a mess. Two, the right tub model can double as a great shower bench or spot to perch your leg on while shaving."

Curious about how this would look in your home bathroom? Explore the trend further with helpful tips and examples in Whipple's full article on Houzz.
