Located in the royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea, 375 Kensington High Street is one of the most sought-after addresses in London. Often with large development, challenges arise with installations of wet rooms due to very restricted floor depth. We worked with the contractor to overcome the challenge and provide 300+ low-profile wet room solutions throughout the development.
As is often the case with large developments, challenges arise during the specification and installation of wet room systems. Restrictive floor depths limit the available resources, and careful planning is necessary. Wetroom Materials were faced with producing a low-profile drain, with high a capacity, whilst remaining quick and easy to clean to benefit the maintenance team of 375 Kensington High Street.
The aesthetics of the drainage was required to complement the rest of the interior décor and the property’s image; only the most sophisticated drain finishes would be suited to such a project.
Due to the size and scale of the project, flexibility around the supply and demand of products had to be catered for during the construction process; suppliers, including Wetroom Materials, had to be extremely responsive to keep within the specified timescale of the project.
Wetroom Materials worked hand in hand with the architects and contractors to overcome the varying challenges the project presented. 300+ low-profile wet room solutions were supplied to the development in total.
Due to its versatility and design, the HighLine Custom was selected to be used throughout the entirety of the development. The HighLine Custom is seamlessly installed to complement the aesthetic design of the bathroom. A slot channel drainage system would affect the slick and classic design of 375 Kensington Street.
The finish is designed to hold the floor tile directly on top of itself, creating a seamless, almost invisible drainage solution, that only has a 6mm void around the insert to collect the water flowing across the wet room floor.
Wetroom Materials were on hand for the duration of the construction to answer and provide professional advice and expertise to the contractors. The close relationship between Wetroom Materials and the contractors allowed for the project to be completed in a timely manner, and to be a great success.
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 WM | Wetroom 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, WM | Wetroom 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 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 WM, 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 WM | Wetroom 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 WM 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."
