Ideas To Design Your Wet Room

Walk-in showers and wet rooms are an increasingly popular alternative to mobility baths, in part because many people prefer to shower than to bathe.

The main difference between a wet room and a walk-in shower is primarily about how the room is laid out and separated. Wet rooms are open plan, even if they often do have a shower screen, and rather than having a shower tray will instead have a hole in the floor which drains away water.

This allows the whole bathroom to be easily accessible with the step-up typically required to access a shower no longer being necessary.

Here are some top tips when designing your wet room.


Emphasise Space

The big advantage of a wet room is that like most open-plan spaces it makes the room look bigger than it is, a benefit compounded by the lack of a bath.

Use bright, neutral tiles, mirrors to reflect natural light around the room and a clear or frosted glass screen to maximise the light.


Install A Heated Towel Rail

Heating is very important in any bathroom, as our body temperature quickly drops before we dry ourselves off. Installing a heated towel rail close to the shower but not so close as it is likely to get wet is a great way to keep warm and comfortable.

Underfloor heating is also an option in a wet room, as the screed or mats can be installed underneath the flooring.


Maximise Floor Space

With a wet room, you will want as much space as possible, so where possible ensure your toilet and sink basin are mounted onto the wall, as well as having a concealed shower valve and large mounted shower head.

Not only will this help your wet room to look luxurious, but it will also make it easier to clean.
