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.
If you wish to enhance the mood of your bathroom, line the base of your vanity or medicine cabinet with LED strip lighting, which can also double as a nightlight when you need to use your bathroom late at night or early in the morning, but don’t want to turn on your bright overhead lights in case they jolt you wide awake from your sleepy state.

OK, technically this is in a laundry room, but this durable glazed steel bucket sink would work just as well in a bathroom, especially a guest or kids’ bath. There are no holes for a faucet, so you’d have to incorporate a wall-mounted one, as shown earlier. But hey, it’s two great ideas in one.
