Create A Designer Statement With A Wetroom

Creating a wetroom bathroom is a fantastic way to provide your home with a designer statement and will create a very striking focal point. Wetroom bathrooms are a great way to achieve a sense of space and provide a very open feel. Installing a wetroom is becoming an increasingly popular choice as they provide a really convenient way to shower and are suited to those who lead a busy lifestyle and offer really easy access for those who are less mobile.

A true wetroom features a completely open plan space and the entire room needs to be made completely watertight, so it is recommended that you hire a professional bathroom fitter to carry out the installation work to ensure of many years of trouble free use. In a wetroom the water drains away through the floor so you need to check if this is possible in your bathroom and the floor will also need to be raised up and sloping in the direction of the drain.

A wetroom glass panel is a great way to protect everything in your bathroom from getting covered in water every time you have a shower, but will still provide a very open and minimal feel. Wetroom glass panels are available in a range of sizes and they can be installed individually or you can combine two panels to create more of an enclosed showering space. If you aren’t keen on creating a true wetroom a glass panel can be installed onto a low level shower tray, which still provides a very clean, minimalistic look

The right style of shower screens can make all the difference to your wetroom and provide them all important final details. A large drench style shower head which is fitted to the wall or the ceiling will create a stylish feature and provides a very refreshing shower to awaken your senses. If you have enough space why not install two shower heads for a touch of designer style? Also, it is important that you carefully consider where best to locate the shower so you can avoid walking across a wet floor if you only want to wash your hands, so make sure you install it away from the door, toilet and basin.

When choosing a toilet and basin for your wetroom it is best to opt for wall-mounted versions to create maximum floor space and as the floor needs to be sloped it will alleviate any problems with trying to install a floor-mounted toilet and basin. A wall-hung toilet and basin will enhance the minimal look and feel of your wetroom and makes cleaning the floor less of a chore too and there are many sizes and styles for you to choose from so you can be sure to discover the perfect fit for the space you have.

The right style of tiles will really help to enhance the overall look of your wetroom, to create an impact think about installing large format tiles floor to ceiling; this will also help to create a sense of space. If you have the budget installing under-floor heating is a definite must as it will help to dry out the floor much quicker as well as providing you with a warm and inviting space. Also, a heated towel rail will add a stylish feature and will provide you with somewhere to place your towels as well as keeping them warm and cosy too.
