Notes to answerer
Kassijussi Suihkukaapissa on oma pohja-allas, joka on liitetty viemäriin, suihkutilassa on yhteinen lattia muun kylpyhuonetilan kanssa, mahdollisesti verho tai muu seinä rajaamassa tilaa muusta kylpyhuoneesta. Suihkuletku kylpyammeen yhteydessä on se kehnoin vaihtoehto. Tämä on arkkitehdin näkemys asiasta.

No  Susanna Ilmanen - Kääntämö Oy (X): ”Walk-in shower” ei ole tarkasti ottaen suihkukoppi, koska siinä ei ole pohjaosaa. Muutenkaan suihkukoppi (shower cubicle) ei ole erityisen maininnan arvoinen huonekuvauksessa, jossa on tavallisempaa puhua vain suihkusta.

No  Kassijussi: Moderni on nykyaikainen ja walk-in shower on suihkutila

Yes  Irja Frank: Kannatan suihkukaappia. Walk-in showerissa on tietenkin pohjaosa, ja sitä paitsi se on maininnan arvoinen, koska suihku on usein kylpyammeen yhteydessä, ei erillään.

No  Jaana Inkinen: Kannatan suihkutilaa, mielestäni pelkästä walk-in-showerista ei voi päätellä, onko kyse tilavasta suihkuhuoneesta, vai erillisestä asennettavasta suihkukopista, joten käyttäisin yleisempää termiä -> suihkutila.
