Now that wet rooms have established themselves as the must have luxury space, the great minds behind the design have been flaunting their talent. Making a statement has never been more interesting! 2019 looks set to be a year filled with colour, personalised expression, and subtle indulgence.
Here are some of the most inspiring trends that are coming your way, both to the hospitality industry and to the bespoke home.
Azure blue. Topaz dawn. Emerald dew. 2019 is the year where wet rooms are ready to shake off the grey hues and embrace a world of colour.
For designers, this will open a palette of opportunities. Whether the goal is sophistication, boldness, or good old fashioned fun, wet rooms are able to provide it.
Splashes of colour are the order of the day for this year’s wet rooms. Innovative developments in porcelain tile technology mean that adding a dash of drama to a wet room is easily achieved.
Try accenting a shelving alcove, basin cabinet, or bath for a bold character statement.
For classic cottages and Edwardian chic, 2019 is the year that wet rooms look set to take centre stage. Now that classic tile-effect walls are available, achieving the heritage look has never been easier.
Opt for subtle hues of smoky grey infused with a dash of lilac, and set them off against timeless glossy white tiles.
Sunken baths are now en vogue, and if you’ve yet to try one: do! Not only do they allow for a deeper and more luxurious bathing experience, they also tone with the natural lines of the wet room.
Our Greek and Roman ancestors were fans of stepping down into a pool of delicately lit and welcoming water rather than clambering over a two-foot high free-standing bath, and 2019 is the year that wet rooms are finally rediscovering that fundamental beauty.
Are you one of the many whose bathroom projects result in an awkward, unwieldy space? Throughout the last year, wet room innovation has been focused upon optimising light and space.
Slimline cabinets, discrete storage, and bright, light-reflecting tiles are all the order of the day. Replacing cumbersome baths with walk-in shower spaces and recessed lighting are all set to maximise the potential of any bathroom space.
Matte finish is taking the wet room world by storm. Some porcelain finishes refract light in a soft, smudgy, non-abrasive hue that is perfect for early mornings and late nights.
With the correct lighting, muted tones can instantly transform the wet room space into a gentle, comfortable, welcoming relief from the stresses of the day.
Look for charcoal or orchid tones, and blend with a splash of natural green.
Yes… it’s back! In truth, stone wet rooms have never slipped out of fashion. However, the ultimate statement of glamour is now available to all, courtesy of dynamic innovation in the realm of tile design.
Whether your vibe is glitzy marble, brooding granite, or deepest onyx, a wide range of stone inspired textures and hues are coming your way in 2019.
Natural stone is ideal for larger wet room spaces, and enhances the inside-outside concept for that natural, refreshing experience.
2019 is the year where the wet room is set to take centre stage. From vibrant colours to natural textures and tones, the bathroom looks set to reclaim its historic role as the centre of the home.

5 Ideas For Creating A Wet Room
29th January 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."
