WET ROOMS JAREDA | Author: Tom Norris

A wet-room does not have any kind of tray, just a drainage outlet and the floor is sloped slightly to the outlet to ensure that the water drains off...


My first wet-room was back in the early 90’s when a client asked me to design one for a small property in Tooting, London. He wanted a fully pledged wet-room with a floor drainer in the centre of the floor and sacrificed a bedroom to make his dream come true.

I have to say it was a difficult project for me as I wasn’t convinced that turning a bedroom into a wet-room was a good idea, particularly when you consider the impact on the house price as the client would lose a bedroom for a wet-room.

We ended up with a dark slate on the walls and floor which I think looked terrible but the client loved it. He didn’t want any glass partitions or a bath, just a good solid blast of water from a ceiling mounted shower head.

When I look back now I can see that my installation was the start of a new trend which has evolved more or less to what we now call walk-in bathrooms or walk-in showers because all the elements are still there just done so in a more controlled fashion.

Take the photo above for example, it it a wet-room or a walk-in shower?

Regardless as to whether it is a wet-room or a walk-in shower the key it would seem is the floor as a wet-room does not have any kind of tray, just a drainage outlet and the floor is sloped slightly to the outlet to ensure that the water drains off.

The use of a glass floor to ceiling partition is also a great idea is you can now have all the freedom of a wet-room but the water is contained.

Nowadays, I’m a big fan of the modern wet-room and would consider them to be far superior to a cubicle shower system.
