Innovative Ideas for Creating a Next Generation Bathroom | Wet Rooms & Open Showers
An innovative way to transform a small bathroom and give it a modern functional design is to turn the entire bathroom into a wet room or open shower. What is a “wet room or “open shower”? Basically, a wet room means that you convert the entire bathroom or a major part of it into a fully tiled and completely waterproof open shower area. A big advantage of wet areas and open showers is that they allow you to get rid of unsightly, bulky shower rods and curtains and shower curbs. You replace them with a wall shower, waterproof floor tile with a drain for the wet space. Depending on the design and space you may add half walls, glass blocks or glass walls to direct some of the shower spray. While this is a newer trend, open showers have been popular for years in higher end homes and all over the world.
