What is a Wet Room?
A wet room is a bathroom with a shower area that is level with the surrounding floor. It has a built-in gradient or slope to guide the water to an outlet. Wet rooms do not have a shower tray, or cubicle and the shower enclosure is replaced with a glass screen. Wet rooms have a fully waterproofed floor which can have under floor heating which is particularly effective for ground floor wet rooms and those above unheated areas such as above garage where there is no heat and would otherwise be very cold.
Wet rooms are now much more common as they maximise space and are visually pleasing. They also provide full access for disabled people.
