Most accidents and falls often happen in the bathroom, and that the victims were the elderly and people with disabilities and mobility issues. With the ongoing rise of these helpless victims in the UK, builders have come up a solution to minimise the occurrences of accidents or prevent them totally from happening by innovating the bathroom according to modern architectural standards without compromising quality and aesthetics.
It is quite a struggle for people with mobility issues to act independently and feel the comforts of their own washroom without the help of grab bars. Because of that, today, wet room builders designed the bathrooms to alleviate the physical hardships when using the bathroom. We all know that in this room all the time it gets wet. Hence, the danger is there when the floor is slippery.
Great news for all people of all ages, even children who are restless at most times and need the assistance of older people, wet rooms are purposely built to provide greater convenience. A bathroom makeover is a trend that everyone should look into when it comes to safety, comfort, and beauty.
Your walk-in showers will never be the same with the latest trend in bathroom technologies.
Wet rooms are modified and designed that make bathing simpler for the disabled. If it is difficult for them to use even a few steps, in wet rooms these are done away with. Bathroom floors have non-slippery surfaces and are leveled so there could be no chances of slips and falls.
For those who find the value of wet rooms in their lives due to more extensive space and greater movement, they will not consider wet rooms as a pure luxury but a necessity. Although these bathing rooms are really a hit when it comes to their contemporary features, and that they look expensive, you will admit that they were built for beneficial purposes.
The real benefits of wet rooms
Most accessible for the elderly and people with mobility issues
As has been said, wet rooms are practical bathroom solutions where your grandmother or grandfather and some members of the family with mobility issues can make themselves free and comfortable in using the bathroom. Wet rooms contain no clutters that can be the cause of trips and falls. The floors have non-slippery tiles. They are perfectly leveled so the less mobile people won’t have difficulty stepping up or down.
With such design, wet rooms provide safety compared with a traditional bathroom or shower with baths where seniors need assistance to get in or out of the tub. Without losing their aesthetic appeal, wet rooms complement to modern styles with furnishings that are pleasant to the eyes.
Appeals to contemporary styles
When you think of washrooms built for the elderly, you may think of a hospital-style bathroom that’s intended for disabled people. The bathroom should be a part of the modern living, designers have thought of ways to reconcile the old and new by converting traditional bathrooms into spacious-looking corners that amplify comfort and safety at the same time emphasize luxury.
The Wet Room Pro believe in sensitivities of people when it comes to their homes. Making their rooms stylish and fashionable, while not compromising safety and quality, is what Wet Room Pros aim to establish.
Spacious and easier to clean
The style of walk in shower rooms is deliberately intended to make them appear wide and large. The idea of having this kind of washrooms is due to limited space. Homeowners with smaller space intended for their bathrooms and who are worried that they might not achieve their personal taste, designers and architects have made it look large and wide. With less clutter, you can move about more conveniently.
Some tile materials in conventional washrooms and toilets are harder to clean when mould starts to build up in between tiles. Modern bathrooms, such as the wet room, are built with floor and wall materials with a fine finish that are easier to clean and wipe. Besides, the waterproofing aspect makes it all the more protected from moisture build-up underneath the walls and floor.
