Wet rooms have often been thought of as unaffordable, yet today more people are opting for a wet room rather than a traditional bathroom – the ultimate and affordable luxury for a family bathroom or your luxury en-suite room.

 

Think about the space and freedom with a larger area to shower, a whole room that drains for easy drying and easy cleaning.

Their sleek design and modern finishing add a sense of luxury to your home, and their appeal can significantly increase the value of your property- another great reason to consider investing in a wet room?

This and their level access and lack of nooks and crannies mean typical bathroom build up is kept to a minimum, and there are no crevices for soap to gather over time.

Grab safety rails or fold-down seating can be added in positions just to suit you, or if you have room, a bench seat with locker underneath.
