House Flipper 2 and European Bathrooms

Have a few questions about European bathrooms.

Based on what we have to work with, I assume the houses we are remodeling are in Europe. I guess since the developer is in Poland, maybe we're even more specific to that area. Not sure.

In the US, the most common wash area to see in a working class house is the bathtub/shower combination, where you have both a shower and a tub in the same place, and you stand in the tub when you shower. These are not available in the game, so I am always left wondering whether I should put a tub or a shower. I consider a shower to be the norm, and a tub to be something you only use when you have extra time on your hands. To be honest, it mostly seems to be for women, as they are the only ones I know who ever use the tub. But I have no idea how this is seen in Europe.

If I have a two story house with bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and another bathroom downstairs, I've been putting a shower in the one upstairs and a bathtub in the one downstairs, figuring you get up in the morning and just want to go straight to the shower.

Here's an upstairs bath I just completed (the tile and wallpaper are as close to a match as I could get with the color palatte)

I'm not sure how the game's scoring works, but I bet it leans toward how you would find the average house set up in Europe, so any clarification on how bathrooms, tubs and showers are handled in Europe would be appreciated.

In Finland the bathroom is usually a fully tiled and grouted wet room with a shower and toilet in it. Tubs are not common.

In England its usually a tub with a shower attachment, either from the taps with a mixer or some sort of power shower, but the base is usually the tub far as Ive seen.

Rest of Europe Ive only really stayed in hotels so not sure.

I don't see any floor drains, which I would assume you would need for a wet room, but I'm going all tile now and showers. Thanks.
 
I found a statistic claiming that in the Netherlands about 40% of people have a bath, most commonly parents living outside of city centers.

Having more than one bathroom is pretty rare as houses are relatively small here. It has apparently become slightly more common in the last 5 years, but only for richer people. So I suspect most baths include a shower in some way.
For houses with two or more stories, there is often a room on the bottom floor with just a toilet, but I'm not sure if that's considered a bathroom?
 
Just did a quick run around Europe, findings:

England—only wash on annual trip to The Lake District.
Scotland—no underwear keeps everything fresh all year round.
Wales—can't find any evidence of ever washing.
Ireland—there's always a wet bog within a day's journey.
France—never, that's how we get le cheese distinctive aroma.
Germany—zu der community pool, scrub for 7.63 minutes, return.
Italy—just look good, who cares how you smell?
Ibiza—we stay naked, so what's the problem?
Vatican—we wash in mysterious ways.

Apart from northern Scandinavia and Baltics, Europe is much more densely populated than USA, so it's generally likely that dwellings will be smaller and therefore room numbers minimized.
 
See, these houses in the game are much bigger than standard European houses, and I don't know what to do with them except add bedrooms, bathrooms and home offices.

The first game had saunas you could add to the house, but this one doesn't, yet. Also, the first game would identify rooms that you made. Put the right things in, and it would identify it as an "office" or a "library" or whatever. This 2nd game doesn't give you any feedback, so I don't know what the heck counts and doesn't count.

Basically, I'm making American houses, but trying to decorate them European because that's what all the furniture and fixtures look like.
