what is a wet room?

Wet rooms are a stylish, practical option to a shower. Wet room showers do not have a tray that you step over when entering or exiting the cubicle but are on the same level as the floor of the bathroom. This makes wet rooms ideal for those with limited mobility who don’t have to step over the slightly raised surface, and also wheelchair users who can maneuver into the showering space with much greater ease.

Despite their high-end look, a wet room can be installed on a budget and you don’t have to have an exceptionally large bathroom either.

There are wet room solutions available here at Mobility Plus that are cost-effective, space-saving and still stylish. Have a look at our beautiful range and view our wet rooms for small bathrooms, or see which option is best suited to your bathing needs.

How does a wet room differ from a walk-in shower?

The main way in which a wet room differs from a traditional walk-in shower is that instead of a having a built-in shower cubicle that includes a shower tray, the room itself forms the enclosure. This enclosure is built to be fully waterproofed, preventing leaks and water damage, complete with drainage for the water to escape.

What are the benefits of having a wet room?

1. Wet rooms are practical for everyday use

Wet rooms are extremely practical, especially for people with mobility issues because they don’t have to step over a bath edge or shower tray. Wet rooms also allow wheelchair access for those with very limited mobility who still want to retain their independence when bathing.

Wet rooms are typically reasonably large enclosures compared to a regular shower, which means carers are also able to assist the person in the wheelchair entering the wet room enclosure. This further makes wet rooms an ideal bathing option for those with limited mobility, and one of the most practical bathing options out there.

The Richmond level access shower range is ideal for individuals looking for a custom-built wet room designed to create a calm and luxurious shower experience. There are lots of door and seating options available, so you can find the best solutions for your bathing needs.

2. Customisabality and modularity capabilities

Wet rooms are also hugely beneficial for those who require wide access and who might struggle with showers with bi-fold doors. Customisable options are available, such as grab rails and shower seats. These options aid independent bathing as well as providing extra comfort in your new mobility bathroom.

These wet room accessories help to personalise your bathroom so you can make your space truly your own. Check out our full range of bathroom accessories to customise your mobility wet room according to your bathing needs.

3. Quality and design

As well as all of the practicalities of a wet room, the look and style of this bathing experience transform your bathroom into a luxurious, calming, clean and reassuring environment.

This look has grown in popularity after being featured on many interior design programs over the last few years, and bathroom installation companies such as Mobility Plus are making wet rooms much more accessible than they once were.
