Wet Rooms - Is The Bathroom Changing?

The bathroom area of the home is very important, but this part of the house is not always given the attention it deserves. Now wet rooms have come along and changed the entire concept of this idea. This type of bathroom can be very stylish, easy to clean, and one of the focal points of the house.

With a wet room bathroom, the entire space becomes your shower. The bathing area is completely tiled and waterproofed, which is very important if you do not want water damage in your home. There is no bathtub, and you do not have a separate section of the space featuring a shower stall. The wet room flooring will have a drain that allows all of your water to efficiently be removed from the area. The flooring will also slope towards the drain to aid in proper drainage. This particular design will save space and is a good option if the bathing area tends to be small. And the toilet and sink can even be wall-mounted, saving even more floor space if so desired.

Using this type of bathing spot within the home can be very functional and have an appealing look. For a modern home, this design will work perfectly, as it has a contemporary flair and will fit right in with the overall styling and decor. And wet rooms can be created with either larger or smaller tiles in a variety of designs and colors. As grout lines are the weak point in a tile floor the size of these lines should be considered in the design of the room. When the tiles are larger in size, there will be less grouting required and less of a chance for water seepage. But if the area is properly waterproofed, seepage should not be a problem anyway.

If you have a larger space to work with, the color of your tiles can open the possibilities to create anything you desire. But if your space is limited, you would be making a wise choice by going with lighter colored tiles, as light colors will visually enlarge an area. And obviously, personal preference will also dictate what type of color you might want.

If this design appeals to you, it can be done to a second bath that is in your house. There should always be one bathroom that is traditional and features a tub. To have the area properly constructed, you should hire a professional to do the work for you. The spot must be watertight to prevent structural damage to your home from leaks and seepage. A professional will know just what to do to ensure that your bathing space is functional and designed in an efficient and proper manner. This type of area in your living quarters has one more advantage. As a second bathroom area it can increase the market value of your home.
