Wet Rooms Can Add Beauty to Your House

May 15th 2014 at 2:30 AM

A growing number of homeowners are investing in wet rooms to add beauty and value to their properties. But what is a wet room, exactly? What are its key features? And why are they becoming so popular? Read on to see if a wet room is the perfect solution for your bathroom.

Defining a Wet Room

Wet rooms are different from typical (so-called ‘traditional’) bathrooms because rather than having an enclosed shower cubicle built in, the entire room itself effectively becomes the shower enclosure. To prevent leaks, wet rooms are fully waterproofed. Most wet rooms are tiled floor to ceiling for waterproofing. Drainage is also very important.

Why are Wet Rooms Becoming Popular?

The main reason behind the popularity of wet rooms is efficiency. A good design can save space - essential if you have a smaller home. You won’t need to install a shower cubicle, which tends to constrict movement in a small bathroom. If you prefer to shower, you can also eliminate the bathtub altogether.

From a design point of view, wet rooms are practical, especially for homeowners with mobility issues. No longer will you need to step up into a cubicle. They are also very easy to clean, as there are fewer surfaces and corners to fuss about. Wet rooms are also stylish; they create a cool and modern look. With the increasing wet room suites available, you can choose from plenty of designs to create the exact look you want.

Are Wet Rooms Expensive?

No, not necessarily. It is cheaper to turn your bathroom into a wet room now more than ever because you can easily purchase widely-available wet room installation kits, accessories, drains, panels, and underfloor heating online. Overall, switching from a traditional bathroom to a wet room is feasible and sensible; if you are keen on creating a more stylish bathroom that fits your lifestyle and is different from what most other homes have, then it’s time for a change. With modern materials available, it’s easy and safe to install wet room system into homes in the UK.

Look for a luxury bathroom and fittings supplier that sells well-proven installation kits, wet room glass panels, and high-quality showering brassware as well as accessories. In order to create a beautiful, high-quality walk-in shower room, you need to start with great quality materials. With the right wetroom kit, even a small bathroom can be turned into a spacious and luxurious sanctuary.
