As the demand for open plan living has grown, an increasing number of homeowners are changing their old-fashioned bathrooms into stylish, modern wet rooms, like our Matki Wet Rooms, complete with walk-in showers.
The height of luxury, a wet room is a fully waterproofed bathroom with a shower area at the same level as the rest of the floor, in which water drains away through a flush drain. With the shower area being completely level with the rest of the bathroom, it provides a family-friendly, safe showering space with easy access for everyone. It’s a perfect choice for those whose movement is restricted, as it enables them to move easily in and out of a walk-in shower. Another benefit of a wet room is that it utilises space effectively and it's flexible because any size or shape can be achieved – regardless of whether you have a small or large bathroom. Wet rooms can be installed on both the ground and upper floors of your home and come with a choice of curved or straight to help achieve any look you need. The clean minimal lines of a wet room mean that maintenance and cleaning are easier than in a traditional bathroom, leaving you with more time to enjoy your luxurious shower.
Planning a wet room can be a complex process as there are key considerations to take into account before you make a purchase. One factor to consider is the layout of your shower area and whether you wish to create a glass enclosure around it. Although wet rooms can remove the need for an enclosure, most people prefer to install a glass screen to prevent water splashing the outside of the shower area and to separate it from the rest of the bathroom. Whether you are installing a completely new wet room or simply replacing a screen, it’s important to review all the products available so you can choose the right one to meet the requirements and specifications of your shower area.
Matki’s magnificent Wet Room collection is the epitome of sophistication, providing the ultimate all-in-one showering experience. Sleek glass panels create a superb minimalist look and discreet chrome framing allows light to flood in. You can find a wide range of high-quality screens by Matki available to purchase at UK Bathrooms. Comparing products can be a challenge, especially if you are not certain about the specific features that you’re looking for. This Buyer’s Guide evaluates the differences between the various panels available, with the aim of helping you select the type of glass screen most suited to your bathroom.
