    My husband and I are getting ready to completely gut and remodel a small bathroom in our house. There is only room for a 4' bathtub, so I have found a few to chose from, but the problem is that they all are for 3 wall enclosed and I only have two walls to put it against. Any ideas or suggestions that I can do with the open side? I only have about 4" to work with.
    I will post pics when we get started.
    Thanks!:confused:

    Had you considered a shower instead of that small tub? No normal adult would ever consider taking a bath in it, and children would likely outgrow it fairly fast. If it's only used for showers, then why not make it a nice shower?

    You could make a knee wall, then glass above to the ceiling.
