Designing a wetroom

Before you think about anything else – paint colour, flooring, window treatments – get the detailing of the shower space itself perfect. You need a shower tray that’s either low profile or level with the floor. Failing that, you'll need a wetroom drainage system (you'll find these at DIY sheds and bathroom specialists), over which you can lay the tiles flush. Ensure your fitter knows to create a gradient in the floor so that water will drain off.
