Should I Choose a Bathroom or Wet Room? 

Firstly, we should begin by explaining the differences between both a bathroom and a wet room. So, a bathroom often allows for both a bathtub or shower and the water is contained. However, as for a wet room, there's no option for a bathtub and the floor can get wet. Wet rooms also benefit from open space and a slightly sloped floor that allows for the water to drain. 

The Benefits of a Bathroom

  • Firstly, and probably one of the main reasons for having a bathroom is the option to have a bath! Baths can be greatly relaxing and this isn't possible with a wet room. 
  • Believe it or not, a bathroom could add value to your property if you decide to sell your home. This is because home buyers are more than likely expecting a traditional bathroom as appose to the likes of a wet room.
  • Dirt and mould shouldn't be such a problem with a bathroom and there's less risk of this happening. 
  • With a bathroom, there's plenty of design and layout options and having a brand new bathroom installed can work in pretty much whatever space you have.

The Benefits of a Wet Room

  • The first benefit of a wet room is the accessibility. Wet rooms are greatly accessible and can be ideal for disabled or elderly people. By removing the boundaries that come with a traditional bathroom and allowing for more open space, wet rooms can help people be more independent. 
  • There's less corners, edges, ledges and so on in a wet room; this means that dirt and mould has less chance of building up - Ultimately meaning that wet rooms can be very easy to clean. 
  • Finally, with a wet room, you can expect plenty of design options for your home, allowing you to create the dream wet room you've always wanted.
