Many people will agree that having a bathroom in a house improves the quality of a house significantly. They will also agree that not having a bathroom in a house makes a house rather unsuitable. Thankfully, many houses have at least one bathroom and some even have multiple. Although most people don’t think much about it, there are different types of bathrooms. There are bathrooms that only have a sink and toilet and there are others that have an open shower, such as a wetroom. The installation process of each type of bathroom is different so you will need to discuss what you want with a professional beforehand.
What Is a Wetroom?
Unlike traditional bathrooms, wetrooms have an open shower. This makes the wetroom installations in Plymouth slightly different than that of a traditional bathroom. However, wetrooms provide benefits that traditional bathrooms do not, such as:
- Increased accessibility
- Levelled flooring for people in wheelchairs
- Flooring available in a variety of colours
- Slip-resistant flooring
- And much more
Many traditional showers are not level with the bathroom floor, which can make it more difficult for people who rely on wheelchairs to get into the shower easily. Wetrooms, however, are level with the rest of the bathroom floor, which makes it significantly easier for everybody to get into the shower. The fact that the floor is slip-resistant is also makes it easier as well. Nobody wants to slip and fall, especially in a wheelchair.
Why Hire a Professional?
As with installing anything in your house, it is important to hire a professional. If you choose not to hire a professional, you risk damaging yourself or your house. Since bathrooms connect to the plumbing of your house, if you end up damaging the plumbing of your house, you could end up paying far more in plumbing repairs that you would have if you had simply hired a professional do it right the first time.
