What is a Wet room?
A wet room is a great alternative to a shower enclosure or cubicle as It differs from a shower enclosure in that the entire room acts as the cubicle. A wet room / walk in, is a room which has a tiled floor and is completely waterproof or tanked. If the entire room has been tanked then there is no need for a shower enclosure or glass screen, but these are still an option. Typically there is no shower tray needed just a drain placed in a sloped floor.
There are a lot of factors that need to be considered before selecting your wet room. You have to ensure that you allow enough space between your shower and your other sanitary ware to avoid them getting splashed. An easy fix would be to install a wet room panel.
Wet room panels usually consist of just one pane of glass, however it can be paired with a side panel or a deflector panel to stop the splashes and keep the water in. Wet room panels come in various sizes:- 700mm, 800mm, 900mm, 1000mm, 1200mm & 1400mm.
