'Wet Rooms Set to be a Hot Home Design Trend in 2011', say The Shower Doctor

EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 31, 2011) - Some of the leading interior designers are tipping wet rooms to be the next big thing in 2011 – with contemporary bathrooms set to be a hot trend and wet rooms also creating more space.

Wet rooms are suitable for most homes, with their openness meaning they will slot easily into most bathrooms, regardless of their shape or size. There are a variety of designs out by stylists at the moment, from very simple, family bathroom styles to more interesting and adventurous designs such as the exotic and the luxurious.

The Shower Doctor, a leading UK supplier of shower products, including the extremely popular Mira showers, has this advice for homeowners: 'Wet rooms are a fantastic way of creating space and a spa type environment within your home. Clever storage and more room for lotions and creams can make your showering experience feel a lot more luxurious. You will, however, need to look at your floor profile to determine what type of access you can have and the best way to incorporate your shower into your plans. Fortunately, good quality shower accessories can help you achieve the best look'.

The main selling point of wet rooms is the fact that they offer level access showering, by way of a sloping floor with a drain built into it instead of a shower tray. There are no limitations with designing a wet room, which means that they can be a great solution to any accessibility issues for homeowners.

Homeowners can choose to have their wet room flooring blend in or have stand out slip-proof tiles highlighting the shower drain, as many people find larger tiles work well with their system while others prefer mosaics.

The beauty of wet rooms is that they can be as low maintenance or as opulent as you want; if you want minimal accessories and a very basic, industrial feel then a wet room can be easily incorporated into almost any room, including an suite or even an attic to create added space within your home. However, if you want to make yours a 'wow' feature of your home, complete with glamourous fixtures and fittings, you can hang fancy mirrors and ornaments, heated towel rails and even LED lights.

The Shower Doctor provide for all basic shower spare needs throughout the country, however they also cater for luxury items such as stunning LED display showers, Triton showers, Mira showers and many other popular household names.

About the Shower Doctor:

Shower Doctor was established in 1993 to focus on shower repair in the Edinburgh area by George Thomson. He realised that many perfectly good showers were being consigned to the scrap heap, often because many plumber or electricians had no in depth knowledge of how they worked or had difficulty in locating spare parts. So The Shower Doctor was born to remedy this.

Over the last few years the repair business has expanded as well as the stock holding of spare parts and the business has expanded to a team of experts, who between them have a wealth of experience in dealing with any shower-related problems. Visit their website www.showerdoc.com for more details.
