Wet Rooms

High quality bathrooms

Are wet rooms the right choice for you?

As more and more people desire a minimalistic bathroom wetrooms become the perfect choice. If installing a wetroom you should consider having a wall hung WC and wall hung basin or furniture to complete the look. Wetrooms are also ideal for the elderly as it eliminates the need to step into a shower tray.
Wetrooms can be more expensive to install as they must be carried out by a professional fitter with wetroom experience. As an alternative to a wetroom former a low profile 25 mm coloured tray can be fitted instead. This is a less expensive option but still gives a beautiful finish and still eliminates any step into the shower.

How is a wet room installed?

Tanking is the term used for waterproofing the shower area. The wet room shower tray former will be manufactured from either glass reinforced plastic (GRP) or from a foam base material.  Both will have a natural fall built into them to drain the water.

How the draining system works

They will have a drain either small round or square like a traditional shower tray or if using larger tiles for the floor a long drain can be installed. A waterproof membrane is used to waterproof the walls and floor completely waterproofing the area.

Wet room using 25 mm Shower Tray

With installing a wet room, it is imperative that an experienced fitter installs it to ensure a leak free room. As an alternative to having to “tank” the wet room, and have the high expense, many clients use a 25 mm low profile shower tray to give the same effect as a tanked wet room.

The tray can either be lowered on to the joists or placed flat on the existing floor. Once correctly tiled it will give you the same effect as a traditional wet room. The trays are available in many colours and sizes. The 25 mm trays can be seen installed in our showrooms.
