People Are Arguing About The Latest Controversial Home Design Trend: The Tub Inside The Shower Combo

That's like the size of my apartment.

A couple of months ago, my timeline was arguing about the "inaccessible home landing" trend.

One of my least-liked design elements of suburban design is this inaccessible landing I see in foyers.

People pointed out how it isn't practical because of its open air nature.

I need this closed off ion like all that air on me while I’m in the shower 🥴 https://t.co/WlqyxiYH0l

Someone said that taking a bath and a shower together might not work because the shower water could splash on you while you're in the bath.

I’d be pissed if I’m taking a peaceful bath and the water from his shower is bouncing off of him on to me. Naw I’m goodt. https://t.co/JYk3LMg7m1

And this person compared it to a "high end dog grooming station."

This person pointed out how it's perfect to first soak in the tub and then get out and actually shower.

Soak and relax in the tub and then immediately get out to actually wash in the shower. Genius layout https://t.co/lsgBOm2iik

Personally, it reminds me of a mini adult water park, but clean up would be a huge pain in the ass.

Ultimately I'm with this person, though:

all I care about is having a separate room for the toilet https://t.co/qaCMo5SGMt
