In this article, we will look at some of the key advantages of wet rooms and why you should consider installing one in your home.

What is a wet room?

A wet room is a bathroom space that is completely watertight. This means that you can generally do away with the traditional shower enclosures which creates a much more open space.

Benefits of having a wet room

As wet rooms have less obstacles in them such as shower enclosures they require less space. This makes them great for smaller properties where space is limited.

Wet rooms are generally more accessible as the floor can be flat with no steps into showers. Because of this they can be very suitable for people with limited mobility.

A lot of people increasingly like the aesthetics of wet rooms, with cleaner lines and let places for dirt and mould to build up.

Wet room installation tips:

Wet rooms need to be professionally installed as they must be watertight. We have lost count of the amount of times we’ve been asked to come and look at, and remedy leaking wet rooms.

It is not enough just to tile and seal a floor and call it a wet room. A proper wet room installation begins beneath the tiles with the installation of a waterproof tanking layer that completely makes the wet room watertight.
