What is the difference between a Shower and a Wet Room?
Typically a shower room will have a shower tray and screen, whereas a wet room won’t have either, instead the room will be tanked to prevent leaks and the floor will be constructed with a slope towards a drain to allow for the water to run off.
Can I have a Wetroom Upstairs?
Absolutely, yes. With the enhancement of waterproofing materials it is far more feasible to ‘tank’ an upstairs room in preparation for use as a Wet Room than it ever has been. Tanking can be used regardless of the type of floor and wall construction in your home.
What are the advantages of a Wet Room?
Installation of a wet room tends to be a lifestyle choice, but it does have its advantages over a shower. They are easier to clean and can increase the value of a home especially when replacing a small bathroom. It is essential that a wet room is installed correctly – ideally by professionals.
