Why Install a Wet Room?

Why Install a Wet Room?

Why install a wet room? A wet room is a waterproofed, or tanked, tiled room with a walk in shower. The wet room itself is the shower and the floor, being slightly sloped into a drain, becomes the shower tray. The tanking of the room, used also in saunas, steam rooms, kitchens and bathrooms, is a method of waterproofing which protects the buildings against moisture. Unlikely as it seems, the tiles, grout and adhesives used in the wet room are permeable, which over time can result in rot and damage.

The main elements of constructing a wet room are as follows:-

  • The wet room flooring and wet room drain being of the correct material.
  • The wet room floor correctly sloping towards the drain in the floor.
  • Effective tanking / water proofing
  • The Appropriate ventilation

Why install a wet room? A wet room can transform your showering experience. It lends itself to wonderful underfloor heating and the modern up to date designs give your home a touch of contemporary. With no shower tray to ‘fit into’ a bathroom and no set size of shower to accommodate, the wet room gives flexibility where other conventional showers may not. The level access floor gives easy use for less able bodied people.

A wet room can be installed in any bathroom, but the type of shower drain depends on the depth of flooring underneath your bathroom floor. With no space or size limitations on a wet room, there are a multitude of amazing designs available for you to choose from.
