Surrounded by greenery and gardens in the heart of Mayfair, Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane seamlessly balances award-winning design with the city’s high notes. Wetroom Materials have been supplying wetroom systems throughout their refurbishment.
The Four Seasons Hotel has been a familiar structure on Park Lane since the 1970s and has had numerous refurbishments in order to continue to hold itself at the pinnacle of luxury and hotel hospitality. The new refurb that was taken on presented construction and design challenges that had to be overcome through innovative and intelligent product design, specification and installation. The wetroom installations needed to be completed without compromising the existing floor constructions. This meant careful planning and specification had to be carried out by Wetroom Materials to facilitate such requirements. Furthermore, the interiors would have to uphold the hotel’s world-renowned status in being one of London’s most luxurious and hospitality venues in the capital’s most affluent areas.
Wetroom Materials were able to work closely with the architects and developers and propose a drainage solution that would create minimal issues during installation and provide a high-end finish that could be in keeping with the hotels’ prestigious status. The drainage solution that was used included a structurally strong, pressed stainless steel drain body with rear mounted flanges that secure the drain to the wall of the room. Vertical outlets were adopted by the design in order to take the waste away from the drainage system and towards to SVP in a more direct route. This also meant the capacity of the drain was increased and likelihood of the drain backing up would be reduced, creating a more efficient drain that requires little maintenance. The drain finish that was selected was the HighLine Panel and Frame. Made from two components that each provide a minimalistic and sophisticated finish to the wetroom design, with a durability and quality that will not deteriorate through use and cleaning over time.
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."
