Post by Wet Room Materials
The concept of a wet rooms is to convert the utilitarian functionality of a standard bathroom into an indulgence and therapeutic showering experience. A wet room adds enormous luxury to both overnight hotel guests and home owners on a daily basis. Our wet room systems embody all that is great about the wet room experience into a readily duplicable installation that delivers everything you desire of a shower area.
When planning a wet room design and the components that are included, we adopt an approach of 51% functionality and 49% design. By this, we mean that anything that looks aesthetically pleasing must first achieve a level of functionality. Our wet room systems and solutions accentuate the individual component’s attributes, working in unity to create a perfectly designed showering area. With a strong foundation of a wet room, the visual design can then take shape through drain finishes, glass panels and bathroom accessories. By adopting this approach, we can be certain that both the aesthetics and functionality of the wet room can be of the highest standard.
People do harbour genuine fears regarding the possibility of leaks and subsequent damage to property. In fact, those types of problems mainly arise through installation by inexperienced people with lack of competence. Installing a wet room is a specialized job. Dealing with professionals like Wet Room Materials, removes the likelihood of leaks. In addition, wet room systems include thorough preparation and tanking of the complete area before any tiling or sanitary ware is installed. We follow the Danish approved waterproofing recommendations and regulations as they are of the highest standard; resulting in quality waterproofing installation.
Our wet room system components display ingenious design. Like our Unislope pre-formed boards that incorporate a built-in slope of the correct gradient for any wet room area; it only requires cutting to the correct dimensions. Once installed, the process of tanking is carried out, made up of three different components that ensure a secure and tight waterproofing seal. This means there are no joints that present risk of leaking. The low profile drain systems that can be set against a wall rather than in the middle of the floor looks great as well as being highly functional and simplistic.
Especially for hotels
What stands out initially about our wet room systems is the eye-catching design. The wow factor is up front, which grabs the imagination immediately. Modern design with a Scandinavian slant, sets our systems apart from the everyday wet room. Giving a sense of luxury and pampering but providing a strong durable and long lasting design.
Our wet room systems do look a million dollars but are truly cost effective. In a highly competitive market, you want your hotel to have the extra edge that makes every stay memorable. The sheer pleasure of our wet room system experience provides a return on investment that is very real.
Choosing Wet Room Materials also means that installation time is minimized because the components are ready made, needing only to be cut to size and fitted into place. Because our installers are experts, no time is wasted and they get it right first time. Our system components can generate considerable labour cost savings by increasing productivity on large scale developments; this also assists in completing projects to a tight time scale.
Wet rooms lend themselves to easy adaptability for wheelchair access and features to assist users with a disability. Wet room systems can easily be duplicated once the basic essentials have been defined, meaning time can be saved when working on multiple wet rooms with disability access.
This speeds up room turnaround times and reduces housekeeping costs by increasing productivity. A few minutes per wet room saved multiplied by the total rooms, every day for a year does add up to a worthwhile saving. The sleek design of our wet room systems means fewer awkward surfaces to wipe down.

3 Contemporary Wet Room Design Ideas That Have The “WOW” Factor!

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."
