Are you considering creating a wet room in your home? Looks wise it is a desirable option, making a space sleek and luxurious, adding value to your property and giving it a spa like feel. But aside from the look of it, the practicalities of it are reason enough to consider it as an option. A wet room is a practical solution for anyone who needs to create an accessible bathroom in the home, and it’s a more hygienic choice too.
Installing a wet room is a job for professionals, and it needs to be right from the start. A slope needs to be created in the floor, for the water to drain away efficiently. The drain will need to be compatible with the shower you choose. The room then needs to be tanked (waterproofed) so the other areas of your property are protected. Waterproofing involves fitting a membrane all over the floor and over parts of the walls. Then tiling can be carried out.
When it comes to tiling your wet room, it is essential to pick anti-slip tiles. Our Andhra Beige large format tile is available in a range of colours and sizes. It’s suitable as a wall and floor tile and the semi polished finish belies the most important feature: When it gets wet it’s anti-slip qualities only increase, preferable when the space will serve the elderly and young children.
A luxury space deserves a statement showerhead. Dramatic oversized rainfall shower heads give an invigorating shower experience. The Grohe Smartcontrol shower system offers a wide range and the option to conceal the installation, giving your space a sleek look. Concealed installations offer the practical benefit of having less to clean too.
When it comes to bathroom furniture there should be no compromise on style or your personal taste. But do try to ensure that you factor in enough storage and keep the look sleek to enhance the streamline effect of the space. Wall fitted furniture is desirable, keeping the floor free of clutter and making it easier to clean too.
The Inspira range by Roca offers every installation solution that you could need for your space. The WCs and basins are produced with a new ceramic material that is 40% lighter and more resistant to abrasives too.
