When it comes to wetroom design, you might be encouraged to follow the new and modern trends of the current moment. Something that many people seem to forget is that most of these trends come and go with the seasons, which can leave your clients with an outdated wetroom that is SO last year. Wetrooms are big investments so it’s unlikely they will be wanting to update it again in a hurry (read our blog talking all about the cost of wet room trends). Make sure you avoid this mistake by incorporating timeless trends into the wetroom design, so they can love it over and over again, for years to come.
So, what are these timeless trends?
Marble is one of the most sought-after materials by designers and architects alike – it’s adaptability means it can provide the desired luxury finish for any interior design project, including wet room design. Marble is elegant, clean and opulent, and is the perfect material base to use when creating your client’s perfect wetroom – you can go all out with the floor to ceiling marble titles or just keep it to the details.
What better way to create a timeless statement wetroom than with the use of a monochrome design? Black and white are like yin and yang – supposed ‘forces’ that attract in a connected but independent way. The absence of hue creates a calming and zen-like atmosphere, allowing users to free their mind of distractions and enjoy their wetroom to the max. The versatile combination can be used in the tiling, or even in the accents like taps, showerheads and towel racks.
The lighting within a wetroom can take any bathroom to the next level of ambience. With the perfect combination of brightness, bulbs, positioning and style, you can create the ideal environment that won’t fall out of style. The way to make this possible is to focus on soft, adjustable lighting, not just from spotlights in the ceiling but from accent lighting highlighting areas of the wetroom.
The minimalist look is a trend used across a number of design projects, but one that is especially effective in wetrooms. With our modern and busy lives, a functional and clean wetroom is important and using a minimalistic approach makes it not only timeless but much easier to clean.
Nature and wellbeing are very closely linked – which is why it’s such a good trend to bring into a wetroom design. Nature is the most timeless and forever lasting trend, so it will never go out of style. Adding wooden features, greenery, natural stone and outdoor design features are the perfect way to create a beautiful and ambient wetroom.
Creating a timeless wetroom starts with careful planning and handpicked designs. Your clients should love their wetroom for years to come, so it’s important that you pick these elements carefully. Living up to the high reputation you built for yourself is important, no matter how big or small the project.

How to Fit Underfloor Electric Heating in a Wetroom
29th October 2019
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."
