Wetrooms

wet room

We provide wetroom installations in Gloucester.

Wetrooms & simple glass screens are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, following trends in Scandinavia.

Using straight and/or curved pieces of glass we can create a beautiful minimalist look that’s so simple to clean & walk into.

A Wetroom features a contemporary look which can transform your bathroom into a stylish, luxurious space whilst offering practical solutions to everyday challenges.

Over the last 10 years we have become increasingly involved in working with customers who have specific mobility requirements for their bathrooms.

Quite often this will require the existing bath to be removed to allow for the installation of a large low lying shower tray and glass screen creating a far more practical “walk in” shower scenario.

Alternatively the customer’s situation may necessitate installing a complete Wetroom using either slip resistant tiling or where required specialist vinyl flooring.

Disability and Immobility

If disability and immobility necessitates the adaptation of your bathroom then a wetroom delivers a stylish, modern solution that not only looks great but also provides a safer, cleaner and easier environment with contemporary fixtures that help individuals.

As part of any installation where a customer’s mobility and safety are key we invariably also install suitable shower seats and strategically positioned grab handles as in most cases although the customer may have certain mobility restrictions, they would obviously wish to continue to shower independently.

Add value to your home with a modern wetroom!

Growing in popularity with homeowners of all ages and abilities, wetrooms offer the perfect, contemporary shower space. This minimalist approach in the bathroom features a walk-in shower and fittings in a fully tiled space, usually even without a shower screen and tray – although these elements can be designed-in if preferred and to minimise spray on other fixtures!

On-trend glass panels or tiled partitions can stylishly section off the shower area in the wetroom, to ensure water just flows in the shower area while still providing easy, safe, walk-in access.

Design

For a successful wetroom design, it is essential to specify a gradient to the floor for fast drainage and effective soak away, so we usually lay a type of plywood sub-floor and tile over or build, in essence, a giant sub-floor shower tray the size of the wetroom footprint.

Of course the room needs to be fully waterproofed (tanked) so we design utilising the latest technology and products, from popular tiles to sheet vinyls or Corian, to ensure no nasty leaks and a finish that is top class.

We usually recommend a range of non-porous ceramic or porcelain bathroom tiles that not only look good but also are non-slippery when wet. Porous tiles can be specified but will need re-sealing every few months.

Process

In order to specify and recommend the best wetroom design for your home and family’s ability and needs we will conduct a professional on-site survey at your convenience, where our fully trained consultants will assess your current bathroom facilities, take measurements, look at access to the room where the work will occur and drainage, water and power supplies. Our aim is to talk through your wishes and aspirations so that we design a wetroom that works.

Following this survey we will then provide a detailed schematic layout and 3D design, using the latest computer aided design technology so you can visualise your new wetroom.

Our proposal will also detail all associated install and labour costs, material specifications for walls, floors, showers and all other fittings. The design will show our recommended products from leading bathroom manufacturers as well as colour and style themes. We use a network of fully qualified installers for satisfaction guaranteed.

Full pricing and timescales will complete our report to you. There is no obligation and we are happy to review and make any modifications to the design and specification to meet your budget and needs.

We also partner with leading heating specialists, as many clients also desire underfloor heating for convenience, warmth under foot and to help dry out the wetroom. With our one-stop wetroom solution, we manage the complete project from design through to installation, saving you the hassle of employing a separate builder, plumber and tiler! Wetrooms inspired!
