Steam showers make a luxurious addition to the higher end bathroom.













Wet rooms are fast becoming the most desirable solution for up market shower spaces
and it’s easy to see why.The sleek lines and minimal materials suit the trend for
contemporary bathroom design and wetrooms provide the ultimate space and freedom
for a luxurious shower.With beauty comes practicality: wetrooms provide safe
access for all the family as there is no step up into the shower and cleaning
is a breeze as there is no glass enclosure to look after. 

A wetroom is a room that is completely tanked, this means the floor and walls are
waterproofed to prevent leaking and to allow the entire space to act as a shower
area.The floor is tiled and slopes down to a grating which covers the drain; in
some cases a minimal glass screen is used to define the shower zone and
prevent splashing over into other areas where there is a basin or a toilet.
