Its time to upgrade to a wetroom!
Lets face it, for some reason showers have been neglected. Most showers around our country are relics of the past. And perhaps, right now as you’re reading this, you’re thinking ‘ah, it does the job. I don’t need to change it.’ We say you are wrong. We have blessed many with a wet room rather than a shower. The transformation is mind boggling.
Traditional showers don’t look good on the eye. For us, they fragment the space. A wet room on the other hand — well, a wet room makes the traditionally fragmented need of having a cleansing space in your bathroom a smooth, uninterrupted one.
If you’d be kind enough to envision a shower tray there, it simply wouldn’t work. The wet room escalates this bathroom; it makes it look larger. It makes it look cleaner. Above all, it makes it look nicer. Practically Superior as Well as Visually
Not only are wet rooms aesthetically a no-brainer, practicality is where they really shine too. It’s usually one or the other, isn’t it? Not with wet rooms.
As wetrooms aren’t raised, they’re accessible to those of old age and limited mobility. You also have no risk of accidentally kicking anything.
And also you can have custom fold away stools, handles and harness lifts to suit your needs.
