    How to install a wet room?

    Bathroom Specialists

    The current ensuite is 8’6” x 4’10” with a tiled shower cubicle, WC, pedestal sink and a radiator. What is involved with converting the room into a wet room? I’m guessing the biggest job is removing the floor to replace with waterproof flooring and adding a drain. I’d like to put the rest of the suite back in after to save money. How much money should I be putting aside for this sort of job?

    Your main issue may be getting the waste fitted as a wet room puts everything below floor level. This may not be possible due to factors such as joists.
    Price wise you need to have an idea of standard of fittings and tiles etc.
    These can vary from <£10m2 to >£150m2."

    "Hello there

    The biggest job is removing the existing shower cubicle and tray then once out lowering the waste pipes into the floor and installing a preformed wet room shower tray, After this you can bring the remaining floor height up to meet said preformed shower tray tank the room to ensure no leaks at all, Tile where required and reinstall the existing suite.

    Relatively easy job for any wet room specialist and a budget of 1500 to 2000 thousand including materials should be plenty ."
