Installing a wet room in your home will provide a number of benefits. Take advantage of having more design options, having a space that’s easier to clean, and an aspirational bathroom that you’ll never want to leave! Wet rooms benefit everyone, young and old alike. Read on to find out about eight of the biggest advantages of wet rooms.
8 Key Benefits of having a Wet Room
1. Wet rooms give you more design options
Wet rooms give you the advantage of really flexing your creative muscles. With fewer obstructions such as shower trays and fixed cubicles, plus a more open-plan, sophisticated feel, you can take your bathroom design into a new direction.
Get creative with your use of lighting and materials. Will you go for a soft, spa design with lots of wood and low ambient light? Or will you choose a sleek, modern design that uses steel and glass? The choice is yours.
2. Wet rooms provide high aesthetic value
It’s undeniable that wet rooms add a WOW! factor to any property. Wall to ceiling tiling, minimalist fixtures, and an open plan design, all ooze simplicity and contemporary elegance. This can boost the luxury feel of a hotel room or could be the deciding factor in guests choosing your AirBnb property over another. Never underestimate the power of a stunning wetroom!
3. Increase the value of your property with a wet room
It’s known that luxury homes go up in value if they have a wet room. Their sleek design and suitability for both young families and those with mobility problems will often make your home more attractive to potential buyers. Plus, since they’re easy to clean, you’ll benefit in having some extra time on your hands.
4. Wet rooms offer great space-saving
Wet rooms are a great space-saving solution for small properties. You get all the benefits of a functional, practical shower space without the need for bulky fittings and fixtures. You can even make the most of unusual architectural features, such as a sloping ceiling in a Victorian property, by installing an open plan wetroom with a glass screen. Something that would not be possible to achieve with a standard shower enclosure. They also give you the option of getting more out of a small second bathroom or en-suite.
5. Wet rooms are easy to clean
Another advantage of having fewer fixtures and fittings and all that space, is that your bathroom becomes incredibly easy to clean. Shower enclosures are notorious for gathering dirt and grime in their runners and creases, making them tricky to keep clean. Wet rooms simply don’t have this problem.
If your wet room design includes a wall-mounted toilet and floating basin, you have a bathroom floor completely free from obstacles and clutter. This makes sweeping and mopping a breeze. Find out more about keeping wetrooms clean.
6. Wet rooms provide greater accessibility
Although not always designed with this in mind, a level entry wetroom is ideal for those whose movement is limited, such as the elderly or disabled. There is no need for stepping up into a shower tray, making access to the shower much easier. When fitted with non-slip tiles, wetrooms are a safe option for all ages.

7. Wet rooms last longer
Due to the waterproofing systems fitted under the tiles of wetrooms, a correctly installed wet room is extremely resistant to moisture damage and leaks. This means less maintenance and a bathroom that looks newer for longer. High quality wet room products will come with a lifetime guarantee.
