Recently had a wet room installed and paid for ourselves. The installer also does wet rooms for the local authority so was up to speed on regulations. Such as, the shower needs to be one by a company called AKW, who can provide a shower that, if a carer is using it to shower a person, then the temperature will not go above a certain safe level. We also opted for a remote control for the shower; carer stays dry.
With a shower chair, everything is good.
We chose everything ourselves, the Respatex wall panels, the flooring the heated towel rail, the sink and toilet. In as much as it is not an over head shower, BUT, for anyone who is future proofing matters, this is what is needed. BUT, we have under floor heating and a large heated shower rail which provides a good temperature when one does not want the full central heating system on high in the rest of the house.
A walk in shower always has a threshold to get over,even if only a few inches. I’ve seen in them in the newspaper ads!! They are most certainly NOT a wet room.
We also decided on having a bidet toilet seat.
