Wetrooms are perfect when you need to add another shower and toilet within a very small space, but you should be very careful about what you use to decorate and create your wetroom. Probably the most important thing to consider is the floor – it needs to slope to a drainage point, and it must stand up against heavy use. Here are just five reasons why tiles are the right tool for the job.
- Small and Versatile
Tiles can be made quite small, so it’s relatively easy to fit them around tight, small, or awkward spaces. If you need them to cover a very small area, you can have them cut down to an even smaller size. These are important advantages when you’re dealing with a wetroom since flooring needs to go from wall to wall without a break.
- Easy to Create a Slope
The floor of your wetroom will need to slope slightly to ensure water runs into the drain instead of just sitting on the surface of the floor. Tiles are very easy to orient in the right position, and you can even have the tiles closest to the drain slope down more than those further away.
- Wide Range of Styles
People often assume that wetrooms have to be a little boring, but that’s only because most people encounter them in hospitals and assisted living facilities. There’s no reason not to give yours a little extra life, and tiles make it easy thanks to the wide variety of available styles, materials, and textures.
- Easier to Fix
Regardless of the room you’re flooring, one of the main benefits of using tiles is being able to repair each one individually in the event of damage. Instead of having to replace the entire section of floor, you only need to prise up and replace the problem tile or tiles. Repairs are quick, easy, and generally inexpensive.
