Before and After Bathroom

Below we have a Victoria Park bathroom that has all the hallmarks of the era for this type of bathroom. You have the mirror box window which almost always has an extension built behind it. You have the cast iron baths that take about 6 people to lift and tiles 200mm or less. This bathroom looks like it was renovated partly over the years. Room Size 2.7m Wide x 2m Deep (Window Wall)

FINAL LAYOUT

What we did as you can see above was create a wet room set up. The purpose of the wet room really is to make a larger user experience for the renovator.  We will answer this further in FAQ’s below.

Frequently Ask Questions (In Relation To This Space)

Below are two frequently asked questions about wet room setups like above.

How about those sections around the bath won’t they get wet in a wet room?

A very valid question and one that always gets asked. So the obvious answer is yes they will, but how much water actually gets to this section really comes down to so many factors. Wet rooms are difficult bathrooms to create as you have to understand what you are doing and have done enough of them to know the mistakes you will have doing them. What I will say is that you have different types of back to wall baths that can fill those spaces, you will also get minor water if done correctly if at all and you have to comfortable with that to have a wet room set up.

Why do people do wet rooms?

I have done over 200 wet room renovations and I will tell you the real purpose of wet rooms is both a practical feeling of a bigger bathroom and a visual sense of a bigger bathroom. The biggest con of a wet room will be that water does splash in the wet area which can be annoying. The biggest pros though is they allow you to have a big bath and most importantly a big shower all in the same place you are already using right now just with a few little tweaks.
