Seeing before and afters of a similar space to yours is the best way to be inspired. Below is for bathrooms that utilize the idea of an open shower and a toilet in the room. In most cases, we have removed the bath all together allowing for a toilet in the room and a big fixed panel walk-in shower. Generally, these layouts always make the room feel bigger because the original shower feels like a wall upon entry by moving this to the back of the room, and or converting the screen to a frameless setup will make it feel so much bigger.

Bricked shower walls are not always my go-to bathroom design as I feel it can block light into a room. That being said they are a lot easier to clean than glass so its a balance of what you prefer.
