I know that wet rooms are considered by many to be a luxury installed in only the poshest of homes, but there is a growing trend to fit one in ordinary bathrooms, even small ones.

A minimum size of 1.5m x 1m is usually recommended but fortunately the average size of a UK bathroom is 2.5m x 2m. A shower instead of a bath means wet rooms are more space efficient.

Because they are generally smaller than bathrooms, wet rooms have to be aware of space saving devices. A good example is including shelving in the shower area.

One way of making a room feel bigger is to install two mirrors on opposite walls. This gives the illusion that the room is larger than it actually us.

I am often asked what the difference is between a shower room and a wet room. The essential difference is that a wet room does not have the tray that a walk-in shower does. Instead it is fitted with a drain.

This means that there is usually more space in a wet room for other bathroom essentials, such as a toilet.

If you are in the Gloucestershire are and are considering having a wet room installed give me a call today on 01531 822128.
