We love fitting Wet Rooms here at Plan Tec. Each one is bespoke and becoming increasingly popular in UK homes. Experts say that any Wet Room adds value to a property.
Completely waterproof and tiled, wet rooms are stylish bathing areas featuring a level access shower with the option to include a bath if space permits.
Here is a handy list of six key benefits of wet rooms to help you understand the concept:
1. A Wet Room Adds a Touch of Luxury
The sleek tiling and spacious feel of a wet room creates a luxurious feel akin to an exclusive hotel in your own home. You can increase this luxury feeling with electric underfloor heating which warms the tiles and helps moisture evaporate more quickly. Your feet will appreciate this cosy benefit.
2. A Wet Room Offers Flexibility in Layout and Design
You can be as creative as you like when designing your wet room layout and design features. They are great for rooms of all sizes and create a spacious feel even in small bathrooms, especially when using light coloured tiles. Shower screens are optional in full wet rooms and you can choose to have a bath if space permits.
3. Wet Rooms are Completely Waterproof
When properly installed wet rooms are completely waterproof, providing reassurance that water will not leak through any of the walls or floor. This also means a wet room can potentially be installed on any floor of your house.
4. Wet Rooms Provide Safety and Convenience
The level access shower of a wet room is a safe and practical option, particularly for the elderly or less able. By using Marmox level access shower tray (known as a former), there is also no need to slope the entire floor as the shower tray has the ideal gradient built into it allowing the water to easily drain away. The shower trays are also designed to be tiled with non-slip mosaics, providing safety and style.
5. A Wet Room Can Increase the Value of your Home
When adding a wet room as a second bathroom in your home, it can increase the resale value of your home. Buyers tend to view a wet room as a practical, modern and desirable addition. It is important to note that most people do want a bath in the house so it is best to either add the wet room as a second bathroom or install a bath in it.
6. Wet Rooms are Easy to Clean and Maintain
Wet rooms are generally easier to clean than a conventional bathroom and are low maintenance. This is particularly the case when the room has a wall hung toilet and sink, providing easy cleaning access to the entire floor.
