Small or large, modern or classic, there is one element that stands out particularly in any bathroom design, which is the shower area.
Yes, bathtubs are amazing. There’s nothing like a relaxing bath after a long, stressful day. But there are times that it is best to opt for other options.
So, what is a wet room?
A wetroom is a fully waterproofed bathroom where the shower area is level with the rest of the room. The water drains away through a shower drain set on the floor.
Being water-resistant and with level-access walk-in shower areas, Wet rooms are an excellent choice as they are functional, stylish, and fashionable. You can choose and use any type of tiles for your wet room. They can be porcelain tiles, natural stone tiles, or ceramic tiles. Just make sure that the floor tiles are anti-slip to make the area safe to use.
If you are thinking about having a wet room installed? Here are some of the reasons why we think you should.
Wet rooms are a very desirable feature. They help to create a very appreciated, luxurious, spa-like ambience in the bathroom.
By eliminating the need for doors & handles and other shower enclosures, they are also the best solution for people with mobility issues, for people caring for family members with special needs and requirements or elder care.
Wet rooms are highly sought after these days, but many people think you can only install them in a ground floor setting. This isn’t the case.
Wetroom can be installed successfully on any floor of a house and even in an apartment if you choose the right fitter. When waterproofing the entire shower room, there is no demand for a shower tray or a screen, although many people still choose to put a screen to prevent water from spreading out of the shower area.
Not only are wetrooms great to look at, but they’re also highly practical too. Needing little space to look fantastic, with the right team behind you, you can have one installed in next to no time.
Plus, they offer several more benefits and advantages:
Wet rooms are ultra-stylish and ideal for creating a luxury, contemporary look.
As a secondary bathroom, a wet room will add value to your home
Perfect for smaller bathrooms – having no bathtub creates a lot more space.
Wet rooms are easier to clean and maintain.
If the work is done correctly by professionals, your floor is more protected than it would be in a standard bathroom. And since all rooms are waterproofed, any splashes from the bath or sink don’t cause any worries.
