When it comes to bathrooms and wetrooms, not everyone is into a light/pastel, elegant design for relaxation and simplicity – some people prefer it to be a strong dark colour that produces a more dramatic and bold effect. Masculine bathrooms are becoming more and more popular for households, and can be a very charming room if designed and installed correctly. The most effective type of bathroom in this style is to create a wetroom, which means that the whole room is waterproofed, or tanked, meaning that you can step in and out the shower at the same level as the rest of the floor. Wet rooms are also much easier to clean (especially with our cleaning kit) than traditional bathrooms, so its a great option for everybody.
The size of your bathroom space shouldn’t be an issue, with the correct planning, you can create a practical wet room that is enjoyable for all. Follow our tips for creating the perfect masculine bathroom…
People have been playing it safe in the colour scheme of their bathrooms for a long time, with white walls and simple subway tiles dominating modern bathrooms. That is all starting to change, with more of us embracing the darker, moodier colours that are already popular in other parts of the house. Coloured tiles are a good way to do this, our favourites being a dark blue or dark grey with coloured accents within the wet room.
Using dark grouting between your dark coloured tiles is a great way to try something a bit more masculine and create a more consistent look within your wetroom/bathroom. Whether this is dark grey grouting between lighter or darker tiles, it can change the look of your bathroom to be something a lot more sleek and dramatic.
Matt black is one of the most up-to-date trends for bathrooms and wetrooms. It is both sleek and functional, and matt black accessories can be found in shower-heads and taps to toilet roll holders and shelving. It works wonderfully paired with dark grey walls and white units and flooring.
There is nothing more earthly than a dark wood being used in your bathroom. Although actual wood isn’t advised for bathrooms/wetrooms as moisture and humidity will damage and warp the wood, there are alternatives you can have that give the same effect. Porcelain wooden tiles can come in a variety of colours and finishes, which will fill your bathroom with warmth and character.
The fixtures within your bathroom or wetroom can contribute to the whole atmosphere. For a more masculine feeling, choose fixtures that are more straight in shape, like rectangles with softened corners instead of curves and ovals. This could include everything from your sink basin to your toilet.
Creating a masculine bathroom starts with a strategic bathroom design plan, you don’t just want to wing it and hope everything falls into place. Take a look at our high-quality wetroom products, which partnered with your excellent design and dedication, will leave your customers more than happy with their wetroom.
Why You Should Turn Your Loft into a Wetroom
27th January 2020
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."
