What is a wet room? Basically it is a waterproof, walk-in room with a shower facility. There is no requirement for the traditional shower tray as the drainage is set directly into the floor.
This makes for level access which is more practical, particularly for people with mobility/disability issues as this eliminates the need to step up into a shower cubicle.
Wet rooms need to be totally sealed prior to tiling, therefore, the use of waterproof underlay or membranes, sealing tapes and tanking compound is used to create a fully water tight area.
Wet rooms are a popular way of converting an often small, dysfunctional and tired looking bathroom into something much more spacious/functional with a modern minimalist feel.
It can give you the ability to create a room that is not only stylish in its appearance, but gives you a more usable modern space.
The environment itself becomes more functional in its use and often much easier to clean than a standard bathroom.
