    Want to know how to create the ultimate bathroom wetroom but worried about costs and possible complications? Relax and take a look at our guide – it’s not as hard as you might think.

    Shower flooring – Bespoke shower trays

    Save on the mess and trouble of tiling and waterproofing a wetroom floor by choosing a custom made shower tray which covers the shower area. Versital bespoke shower trays are made to the exact shape and size of the area you require, and can even have the colour and waste position specified.

    Custom floor slabs from Versital in the matching finish can be ordered for the rest of the bathroom floor to keep the sleek wetroom look.

    Wet Room Walls – Shower Panels

    Bespoke shower tray, shower seat and panels in brown granite finish.In a wetroom it is essential that the walls are 100% waterproof. To save on messy waterproofing and fiddly tiles with unattractive grouting, choose shower panels that are made to measure to the size that you need.

    Versital offer made to measure shower panels in a huge range of different marble, granite and sparkle colour options. Simply measure the size of panels you need, choose your colour and order.

    Make sure you panel right to the ceiling if you plan on hosing down the whole bathroom when cleaning to save on water ingress.

    Unlike natural stone tiles need to be resealed regularly (quite a big job when all your walls are covered), Versital does not need to be resealed and will remain waterproof for its lifetime.

    Keep Water Contained

    It’s always a good idea to raise the lip of your bathroom threshold by 5mm. This will ensure that water is contained for longer within your bathroom in the event that the shower drain becomes blocked or runs

    Underfloor Heating

    Underfloor heating is a great option in a bathroom wetroom to dry out the wet areas quickly.

    Versital bespoke shower trays and slabs are totally compatible with underfloor heating. It has the benefit of being completely invisible with no external radiator and heating appliance to clutter up the room.

    Simple Shower Screen

    Although this means your bathroom won’t be 100% open plan, a simple shower screen won’t spoil the look of the shower area, as it will be completely see-through. Our clients recommend brands Aqata and Kermi.

    Make A Wetroom Watertight

    “The most common issue with problem Wetrooms is making sure they are completely watertight. If you don’t take care at installation, you could cause thousands of pounds worth of damage to your home”.

    All Versital products are 100% waterproof, including shower panels and shower trays to create a complete Wetroom look.

    100% Waterproof High Quality Shower Panels

    Get rid of unsightly grouting by using high quality shower wall panels. Being 100% waterproof this makes installing a Wetroom easy and protects against future potential problems.

    Avoid Splashes

    Any Wetroom area under 6m2 should have a screen to separate the showering area from the rest of the sanitary ware and prevent it becoming soaked. There are lots to choose from on the market, including screens from Aqata. A single glass panel or open sided enclosures are good options.

    Marble, Granite and Stone Colour Options
