It would be nice if the shower curtain was held out about halfway down the curtain. This would effectively increase the size of the shower without taking any more floor space. I suppose you would have to also add something at the base of the shower curtain to keep it inside the basin. Perhaps magnets in the base of the curtain and some metal under the basin surface for the magnets to attach to. Of course the ring would have to be hinged in some way to facilitate entry and exit.
