Along with the idea of a raised shower that creates a division comes the contrasting concept of a walk-in shower. A walk-in shower is perfect if you are aiming for an open-concept bathroom.
To accompany your walk-in shower you could even choose to forgo the shower door entirely. Removing the shower door will create a seamless transition between your shower room and the rest of the bathroom.
If you do opt for a walk-in shower or door-less shower then it is important to take a few precautionary waterproofing measures. While a walk-in shower can create stunning results if it is not approached with expertise it could also flood your bathroom
For this reason, it is important to consult with your shower installer about the best drainage options. Then, you should also discuss how to effectively waterproof the flooring around your shower. This will help to prevent any escaped water from causing water damage.
If you are a fan of a door-less, walk-in shower then you will simply love the wet room concept!
The main difference between a walk-in shower that doesn’t have a door and a wet room is that a wet room is not always contained by a glass wall. It is also constructed directly on the bathroom floor and doesn’t have a shower base.
A wet room will expose a large area of your bathroom to spray from the shower head. For this reason, it is best to build a wet room in a larger bathroom. You don’t want to soak your towel while you are taking a shower simply because the room is too small.
If you are considering a wet room then it is especially important to discuss both drainage and waterproofing with your shower installer. Without these precautionary measures, you could end up with significant water damage.
However, concerns of water damage are no reason to avoid a wet room. When a room is professionally sealed, and tiled you can happily enjoy your wet room without worry.
