From the design to the waterproofing and the incredibly vital drainage, here’s everything you need to know about a Doug Cleghorn wet room.
What is a Wet Room?
First up, allow us to clarify what we mean when we say the term ‘wet room’. Wet rooms are is essence a bathroom in which the shower is either fully open plan or fitted behind a single wall and the floor fully flush with the rest of the room. They are very different to a walk-in shower in that the latter will feature a low-level shower tray whereas a wet room will not. It’s also for this reason that good drainage is key. Because the shower water flows directly onto the tiles, a sloping floor will ensure that this is channelled into the drain. To ensure absolute waterproofing, a wet room is also always fully tanked with the entire splash area sealed to prevent any leaks or damp. When it comes to your wet room installation it’s really important you employ an experienced team. Problems and mistakes can be costly to repair so only use the best installers and the highest quality products.
Wet Room Benefits
Whether your home is small, large, a cottage or an apartment, you can be the proud owner of an indulgent wet room. Not only will it add the wow factor to your property but a wet room can even increase the overall value of your home. They are also really straightforward to clean and easily accessible to those who have movement restrictions. Additionally, wet rooms are a clever, space-saving option for smaller bathrooms because the need for a shower enclosure or bath is simply eliminated.
