The Pros of a Wet Room

Sunday, April 8, 2018

More people are opting for a wet room over and above a traditional bath and shower arrangement. It is a fantastic solution, and works in all sizes of bathroom, from the very smallest to the biggest. Providing they are installed correctly, they bring many benefits.

1. Accessibility

Universal design is a concept that we are beginning to take note of. Effectively, this design ensures that you can continue to use a room – in this case, the bathroom – and do so safely. Great for people with mobility problems, poor sight and so on, wet rooms are an ideal washing solution for everybody.

2.  Adds to value property

The important aspect of any home improvement is to enhance comfort and usability for you now, but you also have one eye on the future. When you sell your property, will a wet room be a disadvantage, you may ask?

A professionally designed and installed wet room – the room needs to be tanked before it is fitted with shower etc. – should be a selling point, especially with such a professional finish.

3. Improved use of space

A wet room can be added to any sized bathroom and this makes them a popular choice

The original wet room was an open room. the shower was turned on, you stepped under the running water with no need to step up or over anything or, worst still, have a cold shower curtain stick to you.

If you have a small bathroom, an open shower may not be practical – after all, you don’t want a soggy toilet seat! – and thus, a glass screen is the perfect addition.

The room looks and feels bigger, with a great use of space and a practical bathroom space.

4. Easy to clean

Less clutter, less fuss and less stuff to move around means less time cleaning. Hygiene is important in a bathroom but if you have to climb in your shower to clean it, making sure the bathroom is kept hygienically clean becomes a chore.

Wet rooms are simple and easy to keep clean. Completely tiled, the whole room can be wiped down quickly and easily, rarely needing to be scrubbed to be free from mildew and mould.

5. Great design options

Wet rooms don’t come in a prescribed format. It can be created to suit your home and your needs with the final look and appeal of it meeting with your taste and approval. You can create feature walls or floors, all with non-slip, hardwearing tiles. You can opt for a screen or not… the design options go on and on!
