What Is The Difference Between Wet Rooms & Shower Rooms?

Both are viable choices for persons with limited movement. A wet room is completely open plan, with waterproof walls and flooring, as well as a central drain that allows water to flow out easily.

A shower room is similar to a bathroom, with the exception that it is usually separated by one or more panels and has its own drainage system. Generally comes with a low threshold shower tray to make things easier to use for persons with reduced movement.

Several factors should be considered while deciding between the two. This covers both restroom space and personal needs. Wet rooms are ideal for wheelchair users or individuals with limited movement since they are open concept.

What Is a Walk-In Shower?

In most cases, walk-in showers do not have doors. Simply enter the shower area, which is usually divided by panels. This bathing system comes with a wet room panel and a low-profile shower tray.

When space is restricted, walk-in showers can simulate the look and feel of a wet room.

Advantages of a Shower Room

Simple To Maintain

Because just the glass screen, shower tray, and shower head need to be cleaned, walk-in showers are significantly easier to maintain than traditional shower enclosures. Inquire about walk-in shower screens with a protective coating that repels grime and soap accumulation.

Ideal For Small Spaces

Walk-in showers are ideal for small areas because they provide the illusion of greater space. A walk-in shower eliminates the need to take into account available space.

It Is Ideal For Persons With Restricted Mobility

A walk-in shower is ideal for individuals who require assistance with mobility. They are simple to use, with only a small, low-lying shower tray, and can be equipped with a shower seat to help the user.

In a wet room, the shower is completely open, with the shower floor flush with the bathroom floor. The shower floor has a little incline that allows water to drain. A wet room is completely enclosed to prevent leaks.
