If you’re planning to upgrade your bathroom, one of the areas you’ll have to make choices about is your shower. If you know you’re going with a bathtub with a shower, this article really isn’t for you. For everyone else, the question is how big should your shower be?
Gone are the days when homeowners were limited to puny stock shower units. The shower has escaped its stall – and its curtains, glass doors, and other enclosures. The new and relatively exciting trend in Weston bathroom remodels is the wet room. A wet room is a shower without enclosure, with a drain set in the floor.
The top question we hear about wet rooms is how do you keep the water from going everywhere? The fact is that the typical shower uses less water than you might think, and these units are built to drain very efficiently. That being said, wet rooms do introduce a lot of humidity into the bathroom. You’ll want to have some kind of strategy to deal with that – whether it’s filling your bathroom with moisture-loving exotic green plants or having your Weston builder integrate smart climate control features into your plan.
Why are people who have wet rooms such fans of them?
The point of having a wet room is to enjoy a luxurious, spa-like shower. There’s no confining glass or curtain surrounding you – just a beautiful, open space to enjoy the gentle cascade of water. It’s a momentary escape from the stresses of work, family, and everything else that piles up on your plate over the course of an ordinary day.
The cost of a wet room is fairly comparable with the cost of a more traditional shower unit. Wet rooms are proving to have strong appeal for homebuyers, which is good to know if you’re planning to sell within the next five to ten years.
