Reasons why a wetroom should be your next investment
Wetrooms are the stuff of Hollywood movies. A far away dream of a luxurious addition to your home that has been reserved for the world’s richest.
That is until recently. The growth in popularity of wetrooms has sky rocketed in recent years as materials become faster and easier to produce, thus lowering their costs. This means that home owners across the UK have started taking interest in turning their en-suite bathrooms into wetrooms.
Before we give you some pretty convincing reasons as to why you should get a wet room, we must say it is not for everyone. After all, it’s not too suitable for children as it can’t be fun and float rubber ducks in it. Not to mention it may put off families from buying your home in the future if you wish to sell it.
Wetrooms are also perfect for wheelchair users. Without the struggles of having to climb into a bathtub or squeeze into a tight shower cabin, a wetroom allows so much more space. A wetroom creates a lot more space for a wheelchair and much easier access as there are no obstacles in the way of the wheelchair. Wetrooms are also a lot safer, not just for wheelchair users but for everyone else too. With a wet room, you eliminate the need to step in or out of a cabin or bathtub so then there’s no chance of misjudging your step and slipping onto the floor.
Wetrooms on average tend to be less costly to the homeowners in the long run and last longer too. It only requires a small fraction of the fixtures that a conventional bathroom needs. This means there are fewer pipes to leak and broken appliances to fix or replace. A bathroom is a lot more prone to having things broken and damaged over time, but a wetroom has a few features that usually last a lifetime before showing any signs of heavy use.
One of the most convincing reasons to get a wetroom for homeowners is simply the look of it. Since wetrooms came into existence, there’s never been a time where they have been considered un-stylish or ugly. A well tiled wetroom with a unique design personalised to you will always look good, no matter what interior decor trends come in and out year after year.
Although we have said that a house with a wetroom might not appeal to families, it does appear in other types of home buyers. On top of that, wetrooms in general increase the value of your property rather than a well fitted bathroom. They’re an attractive feature because of how easy they are to take care of and how much more relaxing they can be. Doctors even prescribe wetroom treatments to people who suffer from migraines and blocked sinuses.
