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.

Stylish and minimal wet room bathroom suite

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. You can create the perfect wet room for your home using our 3D Planner.

Minimal wet room shower and panelling

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.

Wet room shower with storage and multiple shower heads

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.

Heated flooring for ultimate bathroom comfort

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.

Good ventilation and wipeable surfaces for easy bathroom cleaning

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
