The opulent design of the wetroom has seen a recent rise in popularity and demand is becoming ever greater but is the wet room as good as it looks?
- Wetrooms are designed with minimalism in mind, providing easy maintenance and cleaning.
- The open style and deduction of the bath can make compacted spaces appear larger and make the best of a smaller space that otherwise may not have been practical, subsequently adding appeal to your property.
- The installation of the bathroom with the extra tanking (water-proofing) is considered to last longer as it has extra protection than a normal bathroom with a tanked shower.
- Wetrooms can be very advantageous of people with reduced mobility. A wetroom avoids the need for climbing in and out of a bath.
- The finish to a wetroom can significantly increase or decrease your overall cost. A more cost-effective solution would be Multipanel making the wetroom not only a practical but affordable option.
- The floor is exposed to excessive water making it a project for a specialist, effective draining and sealing is vital.
- Due to the water exposure wetrooms can increase the chances of leakage, and possible damp problems. It is difficult to avoid the wet, especially if they’re small, so good ventilation and design is imperative.
- An effective addition could be underfloor heating to help control damp.
- A wet room is best suited as an en-suite or second bathroom but as a main bathroom it may make your property more difficult to resell, buyers may be less interested if there is no bath.
All things considered, with the correct installation and ventilation the wetroom is perfectly suited for a second bathroom and can add style and appeal to any home whilst making use of what could have been an otherwise impractical space.
