At CCL Wetrooms, we recognise that care home wetrooms shouldn’t have to feel clinical, they’re well-deserving of a touch of luxury and design, all while remaining fully functional and fit for use. In order to achieve this, care homes need a specialist approach to wetroom design, one that considers the users while also balancing form and function.
With over 30 years’ experience of designing wetrooms, from leading London hotel accessible suites to luxury home wetrooms across the south-east, our service is unparalleled.
We take pride in blending leading functionality with stunning designs. Having worked on both large-scale commercial projects as well as individual residential projects, we’re able to scale up or down as you need us to. Whether you’re a care home of twenty or two hundred rooms, we can help at every stage of the project.

Who We Work With
Wetroom Product Supply for Care Home Wetrooms
With our on-site research and development team, as well as inhouse manufacturing, we supply and manufacture products to exacting requirements (1mm tolerance across our product range.)
From the linear screed drain which has market leading height of only 55mm, to our four way fall drain called the Solo4, we have a wide range of products to support any wetroom.
Our product recommendations for care home wetrooms include:
Modular Wet Floor System
Our modular wet floor system ensures that no matter the size of your wetroom we can provide a solution. This completely unique product provides a near infinite number of combinations, allowing for flexible installation.
Flexible Wall Membrane
Our Linear Screed Line is the most versatile drain we offer, and can be specified with the option of one, two or three traps. Incorporating a 50mm waterseal TR50 trap, our Screed Line drain is suitable for almost any wetroom system. Suited for anything from low to high flow requirements, it’s fantastic in all applications.
Our Solo4 wetroom drain is ideal for use in care home wetrooms as it allows for the showerhead to be more central, so care assistants can better assist with showering residents. It also uses a four way fall, so water drains directly below the resident, making it safer for shower chairs.

Accessibility Considerations and Design in Wetrooms
When designing an accessible wetroom, there are certain requirements that have to be met. One example is UK Building Regulations – Part M: Access to and the use of buildings. This section of the UK building regulations dictates turning spaces, minimum sizes of sanitary areas, as well as the requirements for use in a sanitary area. In Part M (4)3.3.6 (c), it states “every room that contains an installed level access wetroom is constructed as a wetroom” to comply with Part M regulations.
A wetroom, as opposed to a bathroom in the government’s eyes, is one with additional waterproofing that meets Lifetime Homes Standard. Of the 16 design features that make up the Lifetime Homes Standard (LHS), it is Criterion 14 – Bathrooms that applies to wetrooms. The principle is to:
“Provide an accessible bathroom that has ease of access to its facilities from the outset and potential for simple adaptation to provide for different needs in the future.”
By adhering to Lifetime Homes and Part M, our wetroom designers create a wetroom that is fully compliant and accessible to all.
