    Help appreciated re planning a wet room

    Hello there

    I am sure several people on this forum have had a wet room installed.

    I am just at the planning stage & wondered if any of you can advise me of what I will need & what to avoid.
    Where do I start. Who you have used & were you happy with the job they did. Anything at all that you think might be helpful .

    BTW we live near Blackpool, so if anyone has any experience of having had this type of work done, I would appreciate their comments

    Many thanks in advance. Maeve

    Hi Maeve,

    There are quite a few threads on Wet Rooms - if you put Wet Room into the Key Words box of the Advanced Search function, you'll find plenty to read. This is the most recent thread: http://forum.mndassociation.org/show...highlight=room

    Your OT should help you with measurements, fittings, grant info (if applicable) and maybe have a list of builders.

    Good luck.

    Hi Maeve;

    Like Ellie says, there are quite a few threads on the subject.

    If you say what area you live there just might be someone in your area that's had work done.

    I always say, leaver taps and shower control, it is also nice to have separate flow and water temperature control. High outlet from your tap so you have plenty of room to wash your hands if they get poor.

    Underfloor heating.

    If there's any specific areas that you want to bring up then please do.

    Love Terry
    TB once said that "The forum is still the best source for friendship and information."

    It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

    Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.

    Hi Maeve.
    Merry Christmas .
    What position are you thinking of having your wet room . A lift is not a massive thing to install and it makes use of all the house . Upgrade to bathroom is far simpler than starting from scratch because all drainage and water pipes are there . We considered it before garage conversion but our bathroom was far too small and room layout was poor when you put lift in

    Hi Kevin
    Thanks for your advice. We have a bathroom downstairs ( which is the one we think we could convert) & a bedroom next door to it.
    Your input is appreciated Kevin. I will speak to you at the next MND meeting. Happy Xmas Maeve x
