Creating A Wonderful Wetroom

A wetroom is a smart choice for creating an effortlessly sleek, uncluttered look in your bathroom, that enhances the feeling of space and eliminates awkward, hard-to-clean areas.

Creating A Wonderful Wetroom

A wetroom is the perfect solution for contemporary interiors but works just as well in a classic home. A little more planning is needed in the design and installation than a standard bathroom. You need to get the essentials right to make sure your wetroom will work properly.

The room will need to be completely tanked/waterproof before tiling the room. More detail about this on: Read all about Wetrooms.

It is possible to create a wetroom yourself with the correct research and advice, or you could hire a tiler that has experience and training under their belts and can complete the job quickly to a professional standard, using the correct products and tools with confidence.

Our expert tiling staff can offer you all the help you need in sourcing the expertise and the products needed for a successful wetroom and put you in contact with local tilers if located near a showroom.

Design Elements to Consider

Of course, once the functional elements of your new wetroom have been planned, you need to think carefully about the tiles you choose. There are practicalities to consider when choosing your wet room tiles. For instance, you must be sure they won’t become slippery when wet.

Because a wetroom floor is slanted towards the drain, your tile design must incorporate this into the design. Floor tiles can either be cut to accommodate the slope, or mosaic floor tiles are selected for this reason (see both examples above). Mosaic tiles are on a flexible sheet as opposed to a straight ceramic/porcelain tile and also have plenty of grout lines to add grip to the floor.

Good tile ranges to consider for mosaic floor tiles include Split, Lombard, Bayeux, Galiano, Chambery and West End. All featured on this blog.

The West End tile range is available in white, beige, grey and black, incorporating coordinating mosaic floor tiles to create a wetroom to be proud of. The grey tiles have subtle tones of grey and pink ingrained in them and very delicate natural looking veins.

Or the Shine and Firenze tile series are marble effect tiles, Firenze is available in natural matt or gloss in a variety of realistic, stunning marble designs.
