If you’re thinking of installing a new bathroom, you could consider a wet room instead. This is a tanked, waterproof room where the shower space is not confined to a cubicle or quadrant. Instead, the whole of the bathroom space can be freely used. Here at Gilston Building Services, we install high quality, stunning bathrooms and wet rooms across Darwen. And this is our guide to everything you should know about the benefits of a wet room.
So, what are the benefits of a wet room?
There are a number of advantages and benefits that you can expect from installing a wet room in your property. These benefits include:
- Increasing the property value- homes with a wet room often have an increased value. This is because a wet room is seen as more valuable and luxurious to buyers, and is something that can make your property more attractive when on the market.
- Increasing the space- a wet room allows you to wash and shower in space, so you wont be feeling confined in the shower cubicle anymore. This also means that there is more floor space, as there is no shower tray, or shower doors to worry about. As a result, a wet room can also be a very effective option in small to medium sized bathrooms too, as this will make the best use of the space available.
- Accessibility- because a wet room doesn’t need a shower enclosure, there is no shower tray to step over either. For people with mobility issues this can be a fantastic option, increasing safety and promoting independence too.
- Easy to clean- wet rooms are so much easier to clean than a standard bathroom, because of the lack of shower enclosure. There are less surfaces, as well as less gaps and joins in a wet room, which can make cleaning so much easier, and faster.
