What a Wet Room Can Do To Your Bathroom
Wet Room or Standard Bathroom—Which Is Best?
Ditch the traditional bathroom and go for a wet room. A wet room is one of the hottest trends today. It features an open layout with waterproof surfaces, so there's no need for an enclosure or a typical shower threshold.
You can splash, spray, and spritz to your heart's content without a single worry for damaging elements in the bathroom.
A wet room is just that…a WET room!
Wet rooms can:
- Save space
- Add convenience
- Make your property more valuable
Here are a few benefits a wet room can bring to your home:
- Better Accessibility
Whether or not you have someone in your home that needs greater accessibility, installing a wet room will ensure that your space will be usable for everyone.
Since there is no threshold or a door to the shower, a wet room is ideal for people with limited mobility.
So, the elderly or disabled people can more readily use the wet room without having to step over a threshold or be confined in a narrow stall. Young children also find a wet room easier to maneuver.
ProTip Takeaway: A wet room is accessible and usable for everyone in your family.
- Easier Maintenance
In a traditional bathroom, a threshold or an enclosure is one of the toughest cleaning jobs to maintain. So, getting rid of a threshold or an enclosure gets rid of this job, and all that's required are normal bathroom cleaners.
This appealing design makes wet rooms generally easier to maintain than traditional bathrooms.
ProTip Takeaway: Wet rooms are easier to clean and maintain than standard bathrooms.
- More Space
Whether you chose a shower, tub layout, or both, the design of a wet room naturally creates an illusion of more space in your bathroom. The open or glass-walled allows for a seamless view of the area than a bulky shower enclosure.
Besides, a wet room takes up little space and is great for bathrooms with low square footage. It is best to consult a professional bathroom remodeler to make the best use of your space.
ProTip Takeaway: Seamless views and natural light are byproducts of the wet room's use of glass walls and windows.
- A More Luxurious and Contemporary Look
A wet room transforms your bathroom into a luxurious, trendy bathroom. You can use a variety of materials to transform the look you want, from wood to concrete to stone to add a sense of wow to your home. Here are a few ideas for an on-trend luxe wet room:
Using bright white fixtures, flooring, tiles, and clear glass can give your wet room a spa-like feel. While matte black and rich wood can be masculine and dramatic in tone.
River rocks can be used on the walls for a nature theme with bamboo windowsills and mirror frames.
Sealed concrete on the floors and walls is a minimalist statement in a contemporary style wet room in the city loft or apartment.
Sea glass in ocean-inspired hues of blue, green, aqua, and coral make a lovely mosaic in a shower or wet room wall.
ProTip Takeaway: There are a variety of waterproof materials available to use for your wet room installation.
