Blog - Shower Drains - Wet Room Advantages


The unquestionable advantage of a walk-in wet-room shower is easy access for people with reduced mobility and moving in a wheelchair. The absence of any curb eliminates the hassle, which also reduces the risk of tripping when entering and exiting the shower. Access from the floor level will be especially appreciated by people on wheelchairs with undisturbed transition between shower and rest of the bathroom.

Another undeniable advantage is that it is much easier to clean the open wet-room shower than tradicional old fashioned shower enclosure with acrylic base. In practice, the fewer parts and nooks and crannies, the easier it is to keep the cabin clean. In the case of a walk-in shower with a glass wall, cleaning will be quick and pleasant. In addition, most walls of the shower and the floor are usually tiled, so you can scrub the entire shower area without fear of damaging or scratching anything. Due to the lack of acrylic or conglomerate elements, as in the case of traditional trays, you can use more concentrated cleaning agents.

As in the case of cleaning, also at this point, there is a great advantage in the materials used in wet-room showers (glass, ceramics and stainless steel). It is the much greater durability compared to traditional shower enclosures made of other materials. A well-made wetroom with good quality components used such as Wiper drains and glass shower screens will better cope with everyday use for years. A tiled shower floor will have a much greater scratch and impact resistance than ordinary acrylic, conglomerate or even stone shower trays.

Linear drains or tiled shower trays, due to their flexibility in use, are adored also by designers. No ready-made traditional shower enclosure gives such freedom in designing a bathroom as a walk-in shower. The size of the shower space can be adjusted to the centimeter, which will work well in both small narrow and large, spacious bathrooms. In addition, you are not limited to the square or rectangular shape of a shower. In most walk-in shower shape can be adapted to the shape of every bathroom. In very troublesome narrow and long bathrooms, the shower can be placed, if necessary, even in the middle of the bathroom and will not interfere with the use of other parts and equipment at all.

Due to the slightly higher cost of execution and elegant appearance of a modern wet-room shower, the perception level of bathroom finishing standard is significantly increased. This affects the valuation of the property, thanks to which you are able to get a better price when renting or reselling the property, and the buyer has less room to negotiate.
