Wetrooms are designed to give you a more accessible and safe bathroom space, whether your household member(s) are older or have mobility problems. Unlike traditional shower trays, wetrooms feature a level floor with no trip hazards, making it safer to use. The wet room design is a popular choice for families where safety and accessibility are top of mind. As well as being warm, secure and comfortable, they have great appeal to those who value their independence and are looking forward to enjoying this extra freedom.
2. EASIER TO MAINTAIN AND KEEP CLEAN
It goes without saying that the open wet-room shower is easier to clean than a traditional enclosure with an acrylic base. In practice, regardless of the style of the wetroom and its size, it is easier to keep all parts of the structures clean and disinfected. This is due to a smaller number of elements, which means you will be able to clean them quickly. A larger area of the walls and floor of your bathroom can be washed with a special cleaner without worrying about chipping or scratching anything. The absence of acrylic or conglomerate elements will allow you to use stronger cleaning agents too.
A well-designed, correctly-installed, and well-maintained wetroom can last up to 50 years! This makes it a great long-term investment for your home. The best wetroom is well made with good quality components such as fast flow drains, glass shower screens, and a tiled shower floor which will cope with everyday use for years.
4. SUITABLE FOR SMALL SPACES AND LARGER SPACES
Wetrooms can be any size or shape and offer the option of using exciting products, from marvellous rainfall shower heads to wall niches to create extra storage.

Due to the elegant appearance of a modern wet-room shower, the perception level of bathroom finishing standard is significantly increased.
