What is a Wet Bathroom?

June 9, 2017

A wet bathroom is one where the shower’s floor is essentially flush with the rest of the bathroom. These types of bathrooms are typically waterproof throughout and incorporate tile walls and floors which extend from the shower. A drainage system is also crucial, and the drain itself is commonly located at or close to the shower with most of the floors slanting in towards the drain.

Why are Wet Bathrooms so Popular?

The rise in popularity of wet bathrooms can be attributed to many factors. For starters, wet bathrooms save space in your bathroom by eliminating the need for walls and curtains. Another reason wet bathrooms are popular is because they are a great solution for those with limited mobility; because wet baths have no-barrier showers, they make it much easier to get around with a wheelchair. Lastly, wet bathrooms are extremely stylish in their simple bathroom designs and afford more options during a bathroom remodel.

What are Features of a Wet Bathroom?

So what exactly makes something a “wet bathroom”? A wet bath is a bathroom in which there is no barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. This type of style means that the water which flows from the shower itself can flow out into the rest of the bathroom and into a drain. Other features of a wet bathroom include seamless tiles from the shower into the main area, floors which slant more towards the drain, and a minimalist design scheme.

Wet Bath Accessibility Options

When it comes to bathroom remodeling for accessibility, one of the best options is to re-design the bathroom to be a wet bath. In addition to the main wet bath design construction, other accessibility options to consider for a wet bathroom would be:

  • Grab bars
  • Hand-held shower head
  • Clearance underneath the sink
  • Usable and accessible storage
