How does a wet room work?

A wet room is designed to make bathing as easy as possible. It gets rid of any obstacles in the way such as the shower tray and door so you can simply enter the bathroom, turn on the shower and wash. The floor design gently slopes towards a central drain, and all the walls are tiled, making the room entirely waterproof.

Wet rooms are particularly good at accommodating changes in mobility. Seats and grab rails can be placed under the shower and the extra space makes it easier for carers to lend a hand, should one be needed in the future. The extra space also ensures wheelchair users can also continue to wash without worry.
