STEP INTO YOUR PERFECT WETROOM
Inspirational ways to design your perfect wet room and bring a luxury spa experience into your very own home
Since the success of modern floor-tanking systems was recognised, wet rooms have become the new trend in showering. Walk-in showers offer easy access and loads of space - when compared to shower enclosures. Wet rooms suit all ages and are adaptable for anyone with a mobility issue.
Wet room design
Your whole bathroom can be turned into a wet room offering spa-style luxury designed around your needs and budget. However, you will want to ensure that the loo, basin and towels are located away from the water spray zone. Wet rooms are generally installed at floor level and can be built into both concrete or timber sub-floors with drainage that connects into the domestic waste pipes.

Choose the right tiles and panelling
Wet room walls are always fully tiled, although panels can be an option for both walls and ceilings. There’s a wide selection of wet room tiles available; from mosaic tile sheets in natural stone or glass, to large-sized ceramic wall tiles and the must-have non-slip floor tiles or vinyl.
Experience bathroom bliss with a wet room shower
Wet rooms offer the chance for luxury showering with either a fixed-function showerhead in the ceiling or a multi-functional shower head positioned in the wall. You may want to vary the settings, from spa-spray effect to jet-massage or general rinse. You may also need an independent flexible hand shower for young children. Your shower control unit should be simple to operate by regulating both water temperature and flow strength.
Complete comfort , flooring, heating and ventilation
If you have traditional central heating you may wish to replace the bathroom radiator with a heated towel rail. But for the perfect wet room flooring, an electrical under-floor heating mat will not only warm those ceramic tiles but also help to evaporate excess moisture. It’s also recommended to install an air extraction system; which works best when linked to a humidity sensor rather than the light switch.
Easy bathroom cleaning
Wet rooms are so much easier to clean than traditional bathrooms. Floors can easily be cleaned with a mop and tiles wiped down with a rubber wiper or an absorbent cotton cloth. Good ventilation will help to maintain hygiene and prevent the appearance of mould fungi
