When you’re planning your small bathroom remodel, why not consider a wet room? In a wet room, the whole space is waterproofed. Drainage is built into the floor, so you don’t need a shower tray. It is an ideal solution for small bathrooms and a wet room can create a sense of luxury and add value to your home. So where do you start? Here’s what you need to think about…
Downlighting is good for providing overall light in a wet room, but for tasks like shaving and putting on make-up, it is worth considering another solution. A demister mirror with added lighting solves two problems at once – it creates the perfect space to carry out those undertakings and has the effect of making the room feel bigger and brighter. Kueco mirrors offer incredible light and storage.
One of the most popular choices for ensuring your wet room is waterproof is tiles. Make the right choice, and they can take your design to the next level. Stay away from choosing all white – this can make your room look clinical. Aside from this, your choice is almost endless – from ceramic to porcelain to stone to mosaic. Make sure that you consider tiles that won’t get too slippery when wet – tiles with a gentle texture will give some grip. Our showroom in Northwich has a wide range of tiles available to view.
Shower or bath?
One of the huge advantages of a wet room is that the space can be utilised better, and you may be able to fit both a shower and bath if you wish. Think carefully about the positioning of your toilet and any showerscreens. The important part of planning a wet room is creating an illusion of space; so glass showerscreens work well as do toilets and sinks with smaller dimensions. Placement is important too – you need to position screens carefully to ensure the toilet is kept dry.

- Carefully thought out fittings, such as overhead waterfall shower systems, add that sense of splendour while providing a relaxing shower experience.
