- BENEFITS OF A WET ROOM
A wet room is a bathroom in which the space usually reserved for a bath, or shower cubicle, is incorporated into the room, so that the whole of the room effectively becomes a shower. Adding a wet room is a great way of adding value to your property and they can be installed in box rooms, small spaces and even change a downstair toilet into a wet room.
The beauty of a wet room is that everything is completely waterproofed in the room and the whole floor is tiled with drainage. Wet rooms also look great too, no need for a shower tray, just walk right in and turn on your shower, also very simple to clean and very hygienic as a result.
The wet room needs to be watertight, this goes without saying, so make sure when you choose a local wet room installer that they also have the correct plumbing experience to match the wet room installation experience. Tiled flooring needs to be designed to create a sloping wet room floor, with channels that directs water to the drain.
The whole of the floor area, along with the lower portions of the walls and the whole of the wall area surrounding the shower area, should be tanked, and treated with a liquid waterproofing membrane.
The appeal of a tiled wet room floor, in terms of hygiene, practicality and aesthetics, cannot be denied, but it can, equally, be cold and uninviting, especially during the winter months. Under floor heating can, therefore, be an excellent addition to your wet room. .
Wet room floor heating allows tiles to be heated to a temperature that is comfortable to walk on, and also radiates heat to the room above, raising the air temperature, and allowing wet surfaces to dry more quickly
