When you set out to build your own house there are a lot of exciting choices for you to make.
In today’s blog we want to talk about the current trend in “Wet Rooms” the modern choice for beautiful usable bathrooms.
Inviting, accommodating and a feast for the eyes, wet rooms are showing up in more and more homes and wowing visitors at new-home showcases.
Wet rooms are essentially barrier-free bathrooms and are traditionally tiled continuously from floor to ceiling and across the floor surface, giving a sleek, unified appearance.
You’ll notice that the wet room’s uninterrupted sight lines give a feeling of space to even a relatively small room. Another added bonus is that the continuous floor surface makes for easy cleanup and allows for residents or guests in wheelchairs or with restricted mobility to move freely.
To ensure your wet room keeps the water where it’s supposed to be, it’s crucial that everything be installed just right, a skill that might require the services of a professional.
Keep in mind that floor grading is key¡ It must be constructed to slope gently and almost imperceptibly, but effectively, toward drains. Tile must be properly installed and sealed to prevent leaks. So do your research when you are hiring a professional to install your wet room.
Once it’s done right, your wet room will be easy to use and to clean. Leaving you a lovely oasis in your home.
