Wet rooms are becoming more and more popular in UK homes. People are beginning to get rid of their old, traditional bathrooms and are opting for the new, modern home must-have. But what actually is a wet room and why are they becoming so popular?
A wet room is essentially a sealed bathroom which has waterproof boarding and layers of matting to stop any water from leaking out. Below, we’ve shared just a few of the benefits of a wet room.
If you’ve only got a small space to work with for your bathroom, a wet room could be the perfect choice for you. As there’s no need for a bulky bath or shower, you can benefit from lots of floor space which will open up the room.
Providing the wet room is designed with this in mind, as there is no bath or shower that needs climbing into, it’s much easier to access for people with mobility issues. For this reason, they are particularly popular with the elderly and disabled.
Wet rooms are perfect if you like a washroom that is low maintenance. As it says in the name, it’s a wet environment, and therefore many ordinary bathroom cleaners and disinfectants can be used. If you also have a wall hanging toilet, there’s much easier access to clean the floor.
Adding a wet room to your home can increase the value of your home for multiple reasons. If you’re adding it as a 2nd modern bathroom, in addition to a traditional one, it’s a very attractive feature to a home. Adding waterproofing to a major area of your home that’s usually prone to leaking is another reason it’ll increase the value.
