About Wet Rooms
Wet rooms are the new, modern bathrooms and are becoming a lot more popular with new bathrooms being installed today. The idea of a wetroom is simple – It is to use whatever space is available, in the most flexible way possible, to suit the needs of those who use it .
A modern wet room is what it says it is. It is the shower being integrated in to the bathroom instead of being a boxed off space in the corner. The big difference of course is the level of the flooring. A wet room has no step or tray for the shower area. The floor being a suitable gradient so water drains away and doesn't flow out right across the entire bathroom floor.
When having anything new in your house, you would like it to be hasal free and have very little maintance as possible. With having a wet room they are both these things so you can admire your modern day wet room with as little maintance as possible.
There are advantages of having a wet room. The first being the safety aspect. With having a wet room there are no doors to open and no tray to step in to making it a lot easier and safer for everyone to use. The wet room is hassle free and has little maintenance.
Another advantage is the cleaning side. Cleaning the wet room couldn't be easier with no worrying about getting water on the floor. All the drainage is there ready to take any water away. If all the appliances like the sink and the toilet are off the floor it makes the wet room even more easier to clean.
One final advantage with wet rooms is that they are completely sealed and 100% watertight both under the tiling to the floors and walls so you will never have to worry about getting the floors wet again.
Installing a wet room isn't as difficult or as costly as many people think. To get a good wet room, you obviously need to ensure you are installing a reputable system but this doesn't mean top of the range pricing.

It has an integral gradient and can be finished with tiling, vinyl, ceramics or porcelains to ensure a fantastic look for the new bathroom without breaking the bank.
