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.
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 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
You may wish to consider adding a simple wetroom shower screen to ensure you keep other areas of the bathroom dry. There’s nothing worse than a damp toilet seat and towel for the next user!
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.
“A wetroom can help to increase the value of your home. Estate agents recently reported that a wetroom can create a premium of up to £10,000.”

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.
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.
The number one reason people choose a made to measure shower tray is a problem with their current wet room.

This makes every tray extremely strong and won’t flex under pressure. Every Versital shower tray has a tried and tested category 2 anti slip base for safer showering.

A client recently purchased a bespoke shower tray to make the most of her showering area. With lots of angles, this tray was manufactured from a template to ensure a perfect fit. Although Versital offer a huge range of marble and Granite finishes for shower trays, white is also available as was chosen here.
