Do you adore wet room bathrooms with partially enclosed showers?
Wet room bathrooms have been gaining popularity in recent years and when you research designs and their benefits, it’s easy to see why.
While not essential, when looking at what makes a successful “wet room”, you’ll find one common feature: a glass panel or enclosure that helps to prevent shower water splashing around the space.
Below, we discuss:
- What a wet room is
- Benefits of partial wet rooms
- Share some images of partial wet room showers with glass panels as inspiration
What is a Wet Room?
Wet rooms are open bathroom spaces which are waterproofed and the floor of the whole area, including the shower, is level (there’s no shower tray).
While many wet room designs don’t incorporate shower screens, we find many customers still like to include a glass panel to add a feeling of privacy and to prevent the water spray from causing a slip hazard on the floor.
A wet room which includes a glass shower screen is commonly known as a partial wet room.
Benefits of Partial Wet Room Bathrooms with Glass Shower Panel
- Not as much enclosure to keep clean
- Gives the feeling of openness and illusion of more space (buyers are also drawn to a spacious bathroom so incorporating a wet room bathroom, if done properly, can improve your property value)
- Works where there is limited space
- Can be creative with the design and layout of the space
- They look great
Wet Room Shower with Glass Panel
The first option for a wet room shower, in the image below, uses a frameless panel in 10mm toughened glass.
In this case, the client, from Morayfield, wanted a user-friendly shower screen that would service their needs as they get older.
This alternative is also considered one of the most appropriate for people with a disability.
Opting for a clear glass panel also helps to create an open and inviting space.
The homeowners in Camp Hill made bolder choices for their wet room shower design (See image below) to match some of the other striking accents within the room.
They opted for a glass screen with black framing, which really complements the other dark features in the space.
