How to Maintain a Wet Room?
Interior design styles may come and go but the best ideas tend to stick around. One of the latest trends that we are seeing more and more of wet rooms. Wet rooms have risen in popularity because of their clean and sleek style along with convenience, safety and versatility.
What is a wet room?
Essentially, a wet room is a waterproof shower that doesn’t require walls, partitions or shower curtains. They work well in small spaces and are safe and convenient for those with mobility issues and, because of their popularity and practical benefits, can add value to your home.
Their open design gives the illusion of a bigger space but it also means that water can splash on the walls and floors.
So what’s the best way to maintain a wet room?
As with any bathroom, regular cleaning is a must. Luckily, though, wet rooms are easier to clean than traditional showers due to the waterproof materials that are used. Also, their stylish and simple designs mean less nooks and crannies to get into, so you’ll find that keeping them smart and presentable is a much easier task than with your old bathroom.
Prevent permanent stains. Regular cleaning should comfortably ensure that no long-lasting stains arise, and this is especially true since wet rooms are installed using beautiful materials such as granite, marble ad limestone. Nevertheless, a light detergent is strongly recommended, and ideally should be used to wipe down surfaces at the end of each day’s use. Good ventilation is also important.
Plan and install properly. Consider non-slip top coats to prevent accidents and other strong materials for installing towel racks and other useful additions. Wet room trays, for example, should be able to withstand water, steam and soap. Each piece should be fitted with accuracy to guard against leaks and water damage. Get things right during the initial stages and you’ll be able to enjoy your new bathroom for years to come!
Wet rooms are a great way to upgrade bathrooms and to make your home feel like new again. Use your style and personality to create a wet room that fits with who you are as much as with your living space.
