A wet room is a stylish, fresh and modern approach to bathroom design in which there is no tub, or even tray most of the times. In some cases, a glass screen is used to separate the shower area from the rest of the bathroom. The full room is sealed, waterproof, being the shower area tiled from floor to ceiling, while the gradient of the floor directs the water to the drain.
A Wet Room allows creating a beautiful open space within the bathroom which provides a much more significant showering area offering comfort and practicality.
As for how to create a wet room, it requires the expertise of experienced plumbers, tilers, and fitters. The entire division needs to be waterproof, the floor needs the correct drainage gradient, and the tiling needs to cover the walls and floor.
An excellent option for small bathrooms, wet rooms are increasingly popular these days, look amazing and give the bathroom a 5-star hotel luxury spa-like feel.
Wet rooms can look incredibly stylish and will certainly add a “wow” factor to every home. Due to the more natural and minimal nature of its design, a wet room can feature different materials such as stone, wood and concrete, and the tiling lets you experiment with a lot of colours and designs which allows your creativity to run wild.
Here are some reasons why wet rooms are a great bathroom option:
- Because there is no need for a shower tray and the access to the shower is much more accessible, wet rooms are particularly suitable for those whose movement is restricted.
- Wet rooms are very easy to clean and maintain.
- Improves the space usage of the room and are perfect for small bathrooms. There is generally no need for a bathtub or a bulkier shower enclosure and the drain is set into the floor, so space feels more open.
- Improves the quality and value of your property especially if you already have a complete bathroom on the property.
