Post by Wet Room Materials
Wet rooms designs have become very popular over the past two decades and have replaced the traditional plastic tray and cubical style shower.
Wet rooms allow you the flexibility to achieve an open plan, minimalist look along with level floor access. With no shower tray required it allows you to optimise the full potential of the room and create a fully tiled surface though out the bathroom.
Wet Rooms have been around for over a century in Scandinavia and the majority of the systems and products eliminate from this part of the world. These products have evolved over the years with the centre floor drains been replaced by wall-mounted linear drains that can be tiled into and therefore completely hide the old fashioned stainless steel drain.
It is important to stress the importance of using the right Drains, Flooring, Waterproofing and Tile Adhesives in these environments. It is a combination of all these materials that make wet room function effectively once installed correctly.
The ideal modern wet room has large tiles, fewer grout lines, wall mounted drains so there is no need to stand on the drain while in the shower as well as easy to clean. A recent survey in England showed that a wet room has the potential to increase the value of a property by up to £10,000. It seems that there is a promising trend for wet rooms as an alternative to the shower cubical.

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."
