What Is The Difference Between Wet Rooms & Shower Rooms?

Both wet rooms & shower rooms are excellent solutions for people who have limited mobility. A wet room is completely open plan with waterproof walls and flooring, as well as a drain in the centre of the room that enables water to flow away seamlessly.

A shower room is similar to a bathroom except that it is usually divided by one or more panels and has its own drainage system. Usually fitted with a low threshold shower tray to make it easier for people with limited mobility to use.

If you’re deciding between the two, several factors should be considered. Including bathroom space and personal needs. Wet rooms are ideal for wheelchair users or people with limited mobility because they are open plan.

What Is A Walk in Shower?

In the majority of cases, walk-in showers do not have doors. You simply enter into the shower area, which is usually divided by panels. This type of showering solution comes with a wet room panel and a low-profile shower tray.

Walk-in showers give you the look and feel of a wet room, and could be a solution when less space is available.
