Important Considerations

It is essential that a wetroom is installed by an experienced professional to avoid any issues with water damage down the line.

  • Water-proofing or tanking – the walls and floors need to be treated to be water-proof before any tiling commences. The team at Tubs & Tiles can advise on the options available for your wet room
  • Water Drainage - A gradient needs to be created to ensure water flow to the drain.
  • Layout – the shower should be positioned to ensure the water is contained in the shower area to avoid any damage to other areas 
  • Tiles – Anti-slip tiles are essential in a wet area to reduce risk of slipping
