Walk-in showers and wet rooms have experienced a boom in popularity recently, especially within the US. Bathrooms are one of the most popular places in your home to remodel because you can create a luxurious space without needed ample room. Walk-in showers and wet rooms provide unparalleled accessibility for people of all ages compared to a traditional bath. A new bathroom boosts the value of any home, but taking your bathroom to the next level with a modern wet room or walk-in shower can take the value to new heights. If you’re planning a bathroom remodeling job, you may want to consider a walk-in shower or wet room compared to a conventional bath.
Unlike traditional showers, walk-in showers and wet rooms do not have a door; instead, they use glass panels to partition the shower from the rest of the bathroom. They don’t only offer better accessibility than a regular bath and shower, and they also offer a more modern, sleek style. Wet rooms are typically the more costly option when going for a bathroom remodel, so walk-in showers are usually the more budget-friendly option.
This shower style is the perfect solution for people lacking the budget to alter the floor of the bathroom. With no door on the shower and a low shower tray, you can just step in and out easily without any obstacles. You can create the look and feel of a wet room, without the cost of redesigning your entire bathroom floor. Walk-in showers come in a wide variety of designs and even styles. You can create a modern, clean atmosphere in your bathroom while adding a practical shower solution.
A wet room is designed to be totally and completely open, with just a slight gradient on the floor of the shower area to funnel water toward the direction of the drain. Besides the minor gradient, the shower floor is flush to the rest of the bathroom. When creating a wet room, the room needs to be completely sealed with a waterproof underlay to prevent leaking and damage. Wet rooms sometimes utilize a shower screen to reduce spray in the rest of the bathroom, due to their entirely open plan.
Depending on your bathroom’s size and needs, a wet room or walk-in shower may be the ideal choice. Working with an experienced team of designers and contractors, as we have at Bennetts will help transform your bathroom into one of your dreams.
