The half-wet room (see below) is a strategy that’s easier to live with. The tub and shower are combined in the same area where the water is contained. This saves on the footprint required for a full bath with tub and separate shower, and the only thing getting wet is the bathtub.
Bring order to messy drawers with inserts that divide the storage space into separate, easy-to-manage and easy to navigate sections for different bath-time and grooming essentials, like razors, brushes, combs and skincare products.
