Whether it’s designing a hotel experience that leaves a powerful Trip Advisor presence, or creating the wow-factor in an investment property, wet rooms are making a splash in interior design.
As one of the most adaptable interior spaces, it’s therefore not much of a surprise that trends are moving forwards at a rapid pace. 2019 has already been declared the year of coloured wet rooms.
Whether your goal is to create a room with ethereal atmospheric stone, a soothing sunset, or even a natural woodland waterfall, wet room design means that the only limit to the possibilities is the imagination.
Here are a few examples of what you can achieve with trending coloured wet room themes.
Waterfall showers are a must-have feature in any elegant shower setting. With their enveloping, luxurious cascade, they naturally refresh weary minds. To maximise this experience, exploit the unlimited colour palette of porcelain tiles to create a space that enhances the water.
Green marble, malachite, or onyx will offer a hint of emerald when offset against natural hues. Opt for stone coloured or wood effect flooring, and consider pebbles for the edging.
When design is crucial, living plants can complete this theme. Orchids, dragon plants, ferns, and bamboo all thrive in the misty, cloud-forest environment that an indoor waterfall creates.
Colour trends for 2019 look set to continue on the same road as we are currently on. That’s welcome news for wet rooms, because they represent a space where making a statement is relatively straightforward.
Dark is in this year. Moody, brooding cloud colours juxtaposed with grey or white have proved their aesthetic value. If anything, the message is to turn the intensity up.
Drawing upon immediately soothing scents such as lavender, rosemary, and thyme, these deep colours echo comfort.
For interior designers, this opens up a wide range of natural stone options for the wet room. Deep marbles, granites, and weathered slate all offer a tapestry of personality whilst conveying understated luxury. Opt for hidden slim-line drains to complete this high-end look.
Porcelain tiles are the wonder child of interior design, and their partner is recessed lighting. In the wet room, this is a uniquely powerful combination.
The challenge of lighting bathroom spaces has long been a headache for architects and designers. There are times when eye-watering brightness is necessary. Most of the time, however, people retreat to the wet room for a well-earned escape, indulgence, and recuperation.
Careful lighting can work with the colour in the wet room to control the atmosphere. Natural stone colours can be instantly transformed by coloured reflections, which will bring out the myriad of subtle hues that they contain.
For a soothing wet room space, consider drawing out the blues, purples, and the gentle green-yellow of agate. The same colours can be used to energise when brightly lit. This is ideal for wet rooms that need to welcome a frazzled traveller at the end of the day, and send them off in the morning feeling fully revived.
Advances in wet room design and coloured porcelain tiles mean that wet rooms are now the space that every designer is excited about. The message is clear: elegance and sensation are in.

Use colours to create accents, maximise space, and – above all – to work with the natural qualities that water already offers. Take a look at rivers, oceans, and skies, and be inspired. If you want to learn more, please get in touch. We’d love to help you bring your project ideas to life.
Advantages Of Low Profile Slimline Drains
12th February 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."
