What is a wetroom ?
Wetrooms are waterproofed (tanked) rooms or shower areas more commonly of a room to facilitate a shower enclosure.
They usually require a special waterproof floor former which is set into your existing floor and which is what forms the correct falls for the water to flow to the drain outlet over which it is tiled to give a traditional tiled floor finish either with a mosaic non slip tile or a larger non slip tile.
Where can they be installed ?
These can be installed upstairs or downstairs in most houses depending mainly on your floor profile.
If you require level access showering (i.e. the wetroom tiled floor is finished level or flush to the surrounding tiled floor) then the shower drain needs to be installed under your existing floor.
This is usually possible to do in most cases except in some apartment installations where the floor can be poured concrete or unbreachable to recess the drain into.In this case an alternative raised tiled shower area can be achieved which can still give the desired wetroom tiled floor look but not being level access.
