If you’re remodeling your bathroom, you have most likely noticed that “wet rooms” are all the rage. And if you’ve seen images of wet rooms, we’re sure you understand why. They are not only complete showstoppers that inspire instant bathroom-envy, but they are also extremely functional and a great way to add value to your home.
Here, we discuss reasons why wet rooms have gained so much popularity, as well as how you can get one of your own.
It works for every space
The best thing about wet rooms is that they can work with any area size – from small spaces to luxury bathrooms; the only adjustment would involve the structure. If you have a smaller space, you may have a shower enclosure with no glass partition. Or, it might be best to have your bathroom and tub enclosed behind the glass. If your bathroom is larger, you can have your shower and tub in separate areas of the bathroom, completely barrier free, since the rest of the space is spread out enough where the sink or toilet won’t get wet.

Your whole bathroom will be waterproofed
In a wet room, all floors and walls are waterproofed and tiled so that they can efficiently handle moisture. Floors are sloped, and all water exits the wet room through a high-performing linear drain or center drain. You’ll be able to shower to your heart’s content or easily transition between the bathtub to the shower area.
The increased value to your home is real
Bathrooms are a huge point of focus in a home. If you are looking to buy a new house, you most likely look to the bathroom, right behind the kitchen, to see how much work would need to be done. If you have a wet room, the value of your home automatically increases. And this value is not just because a wet room is trendy and on-point, but because the waterproofing benefits can help protect the home from any potential water damage.

You get a sleek, accessible design
We haven’t seen a wet room that we haven’t fallen in love with. The openness of the design and the accents you get between the wall and floor tiles are very alluring. It’s like a private sanctuary in your own home. You won’t be able to get enough of it.
