Walk in shower or Wet room?



Both wet rooms and walk in showers provide a sleek, simplistic, and stylish design as an alternative to a more traditional bathroom and shower set up. They also offer unrivaled accessibility so appeal to a wide range of people.



What’s the difference?


Compared to a shower enclosure, both wet rooms and walk in showers have no door and utilise glass panels in their design. However, they differ in that a wet room is an entirely open plan and the floor is altered to allow for drainage whereas a walk in shower has a low-profile shower tray removing the need for any alterations to the floor structure.

Which should you choose?

It is a personal choice as they both provide similar aesthetic looks, with wet rooms taking the lead in openness and accessibility, but it often comes down to considering your budget, your bathroom dimensions, your bathroom layout, and the additional work required with a wet room.


Regardless of which you choose, you will end up with a modern and sleek bathroom by choosing one of these two styles.
