Those 'wet room' type setups are quite fashionable here.

I live in Stockholm and I don’t quite understand what you mean. Most Swedish bathrooms are just like American ones. There is something called a “Stockholm shower”, which matches what you’re describing. But those are only a thing in small apartments in older buildings (pre ~1915) where running water was installed after the house was built, and so bathrooms had to be installed in a closet or a part of the hallway. Those apartments didn’t have bathrooms at all originally. These days, people are more willing to change the layout of apartments like that, so the “Stockholm shower” is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

The vast majority of Stockholm bathrooms are totally normal though with separate areas for toilet, sink and shower/bath.

For most people, it's probably just a matter of what they grew up with. Since I have always lived in the United States, I prefer to have the shower and toilet in the same room. But my imaginary friend Jean-Luc Perrin from Menthon-Saint-Bernard, France ("imaginary" because I just made him up for this post ) probably prefers to have a separate room for the toilet, just because he has always had it that way.
