Home owners are choosing to renovate their houses instead of selling them during a low point in the housing market. An easy way to do this is by installing a wet room. Whilst you can have them fitted for you, installing one yourself is easy enough and will save you lots of money.
Before you can buy your materials, you need to pick a theme for your wet room. Picking a historical theme will add a bit of class to the room. Use marble effect tiles and ornate golden features for your taps and shower head. On the other hand, you could go ultra trendy by choosing chrome accessories and using a simple colour palette.
As you start building, you need to prepare the area in which the room will be placed. If you can convert your bathroom into a wet room this will save a lot of hassle but try to keep the water jets away from the toilet and sink. You must ensure that your floor is water tight so that drain problems are removed and you will not get any leaks. Tiling and vinyl are the two most common materials used to line a wet room floor with and they can come in any style to suit the theme of your room.
After the floor has been laid, the walls need to be covered. You can get waterproof boards to fit most sized water rooms although I prefer tiles for their aesthetic quality. It is vital that you install a corner trim onto the walls to prevent any damp from leaving the wet room. The trim should be applied to inward facing corners as well as those that point outwards to prevent erosion, mould and injury.
You can design a water room to fit any space, big or little. As long as you protect your room with corner trim and waterproofing you will have a room where you can relax for years to come, or that will bring you a nice profit if you decide to sell.
