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.
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.
A walk-in shower is ideal for people with limited 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 even more.
Because only the glass screen, shower tray, and shower head need to be cleaned, walk-in showers are much easier to maintain than traditional shower enclosures. Inquire about walk-in shower screens with an easy-to-clean protective coating that repels grime and soap build up.
Walk-in showers are ideal for smaller areas and help create the illusion of space. A walk-in shower eliminates the need to account for the space.
In a wet room, the shower is completely open, with the shower floor flush to the bathroom floor. The shower floor has a slight incline, allowing water to flow towards the drain. A wet room is completely sealed to prevent leaking.
Wet rooms are the most adaptable space, allowing people with disabilities and mobility issue to use them with ease. They are also suitable for wheelchair users because they are completely open plan.
