On the scale of unwanted problems in a house, most things that involve water going where it shouldn’t would be placed near the top. Water is potentially a very destructive substance, and has a talent for causing unseen issues that only become apparent when they’ve become serious. Your bathroom is water central and can be the source of many issues, from leaks through the ceiling into the rooms below to mould, damp and even water getting into light fittings, which spells serious trouble.
We’ve often covered the growing trend in wet rooms, transforming your bathroom into one big shower enclosure, opening up space and offering a whole new realm of design and style options. Wet rooms have an added bonus in that they require an extensive waterproofing regime that leaves water no possible way to escape. Consider them the Alcatraz of bathrooms.
