An overview of the design, supply and installation of one of our wet room showers in Cheltenham by Prestbury Bathrooms.
Traditional shower trays have their place but there is an ever growing call for level access or wet room type showers.
The benefits of wet room showers are a more seamless look and of course, no stepping up onto a tray. It is the kind of facility you’d expect to find in a high quality spa, but is becoming more readily available for your home.
Our latest project in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham involved a beautiful shower facility, where limestone mosaic seamlessly meets Karndean flooring.
One of the secrets of our success is the preparation that we put into every quality bathroom installation. In this case, the floor joists were carefully cut down and reinforced to allow the 18mm ply sub-floor, cut away to accommodate the waste. At this stage, plumbing for the shower mixer valve is also installed. Please see the image below.
As well as our skilled workmanship we recommend using quaility fittings to achieve an enhanced end result. We recommend installing an Abacus Elements wet room tray. This is bedded onto the ply base and then professionally sealed along its perimeter, before being tiled.
