Wet rooms have become more popular recently and many people are looking to adapt their bathrooms into wet rooms. Essentially, a wet room is a bathroom that does not have a raised or differentiated space around the shower in the floor. Since there is no shower tray, the water in the wet room has to drain through a different part of your bathroom floor. Usually, that means a slight gradient to the wet room so that water runs into a dedicated drain. They’re very popular for people who have disabilities. If you have trouble getting into or out of a shower, it could be much easier if you don’t have to actually step up or over anything.

Cleaning the Wet Room
One of the reasons that a wet room is so popular with people with disabilities is the ease of cleaning. Cleaning a bathtub or shower tray can be very difficult. However, if you just need to clean the floor in a room that drains itself, you can use different methods that require less bending or scrubbing. Many people choose to soap their entire floor and then spray it down with a hose or a pressure washer to clean it. That requires no scrubbing or bending at all. Then the bathroom will simply dry itself.
