Beyond looking aesthetically stunning, wet rooms do offer plenty of benefits. It’s a great option to make your bathroom more accessible because the shower is on the same level as the rest of the bathroom. This makes it easy for anyone in a wheelchair or with mobility needs to bathe without having to step over a threshold. In order to enhance the safety in a wet room, you can opt for non-slip tiles that will prevent accidents when in the shower.
Though they look like large, open features, wet rooms don’t actually require much room, making them a great option if you’re trying to save space in your bathroom. They don’t require fittings and fixtures that can take up precious square footage and don’t require a large enclosure. Plus, these are customizable and can be installed in otherwise awkward spaces, such as bathrooms with sloped or low ceilings or oddly shaped layouts.
One of the greatest benefits is that it can increase your home’s value. Davis mentions in her Instagram post that this bathroom was one of the most expensive in the show’s history, but the renovation paid off. Plus, many homeowners see a return on investment of between 56% and 70% after installing wet rooms.
