There are few design arenas as dynamic or inspiring as the hospitality industry. As Coco Chanel so aptly put it, “luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it’s not luxury”. However, luxury is subjective, and in the world of design, it’s also competitive. That’s why Sleep + Eat is one of the most important dates in the architectural and design calendar.
A mecca for those whose raison d’etre is tuned to all things aesthetic, Sleep + Eat – which this year is held from November 20-21 in the iconic London Olympia – is the creative melting pot where inspirational partnerships are forged. It’s where the pursuit of luxury meets the demands of practicality.
Wet rooms are now a core component of many interior design projects. Much of this is to do with creating powerful yet simple style statements. As sleek, contemporary feature pieces, these alternatives to the traditional shower represent a revolution in bathroom ergonomics.
Wet rooms are beautiful, yet practical, spaces. Gone are the days of clambering in and out of a thermoformed acrylic tub. Today’s showers are a spa break in their own right. Technological advances in thermal heating and porcelain tiling allows wet rooms to enter a new era of design capabilities. This is the kind of imagination that Sleep + Eat celebrates.
Wet Room Materials will have a stand at 2018’s Sleep + Eat. This year, we’re focusing particularly on introducing colour into the bathroom, with different drain finishes and the Reframe Bathroom Accessories Collection.
We’ll have examples of each of our three Scandinavian inspired systems: UniSlope, GlassLine and Lip; each of which incorporates UniDrain. The full range of Reframe will be on display to gain an appreciation for the quality of both design and functionality.
We strive to build healthy relationships with architects, interior designers and developers throughout the UK; offering first class industry expertise and knowledge. Our product range consists of design lead Scandinavian products and systems, lending themselves to the high-end residential sector.
Hotels are one of the most exciting areas for interior design. As wet rooms have soared in popularity, everybody within the industry has been constantly challenged to push boundaries. It’s an arena that creates transformative experiences, meaning that the Coco Chanel’s of the world get their luxury and their comfort.
At the same time, with the right wet room, hotel owners can sleep soundly in the knowledge that they are offering bespoke design without the risk of product failure or leaks. If you want to talk to one of our designers or engineers straight away, please get in touch. Otherwise, see you in November!

My client bought a range of Wet Room Unislope Systems from our local retailer, Bathworks. We struggled to find anyone to come to site and take responsibility for the waterproofing until we came across Wet Room Materials. They were willing to stand over their tanking system and more than helpful throughout all stages of the installation from site survey and room preparation to installation. A 10 Year no leak fully insured warranty gave me the confidence that we were dealing with a professional organisation. I would highly recommend these guys and will certainly be using them going forward.

I have honestly found, Wet Room Materials to be an easy and reliable company to work with. Whether it be a one wet room residential project, apartment block or a gym; they ensure there are no installation problems and we don’t have to worry about leaks. They take care of the specification and advising us on correct build ups and preparation. On a recent project we were able to buy their Unislope System p from our bathroom show room retailer and they subsequently came to site to tank out the bathrooms. It was a time sensitive job and The Wet Room lads worked through the evening and into the weekend to ensure we completed the project on time. I have no hesitation in recommending Wet Room Materials. They are a pleasure to deal with.

In Bright Designs, we understand the importance of specifying a reliable waterproofing system for bathrooms. We have worked on a number of projects with Wet Room Materials over the years and I can honestly say that their waterproofing installation service offers complete peace of mind for us and our clients. The Wet Room Materials Team are there throughout all stages of the project from site survey and specification to installation. More importantly they also give us a 10 year no leak guarantee. I also like the fact that they will handle communication with the client and contractors in terms of delivering a high-quality installation which allows me the head space to focus on other aspects of the build."
