Wet rooms can look incredibly stylish and will certainly add a “wow” factor to your home. Due to the minimalist nature of its design, a wet room can feature different materials such as wood, stone and concrete, allowing your creativity to run wild!

Shower screens are an integral part of most wet rooms, containing the shower spray within a specified section and thus preventing the rest of the room from getting wet. While the wet room floor is highly likely to be fully covered by a waterproofing membrane or coating and thus water seepage is not an issue, you do not want water from the shower to stray onto other fittings or fixtures such as bathroom cabinets or even to soak your towels before you use them.
