What’s the best tile to use in a wetroom?

Wet Rooms are gaining popularity amongst home these days because of its sleek ultra-modern look. Wet rooms are shower areas which are tiled and do not have plastic trays on the floor structure may it be wooden joist or concrete. The concept of having wet rooms installed originated from Scandinavia. Wet rooms, contrary to popular belief, can also be installed with wooden flooring. Wet rooms also allow for maximum flexibility when it comes to the room’s size because it is not confined by plastic trays lie conventional shower rooms.

Another advantage of having a wet room installed is that its floor is levelled, making it easier for people with disabilities to access. DY Tiling Services has successfully completed numerous wet room installation projects. DY Tiling Services is one of the most trusted names when it comes to wet room installations, tiling in Taunton and floor levelling in Somerset.

Why Choose Tiles?
There are other options available when it comes to wet room flooring. However, tiles remain to be the most popular choice amongst people. You can always opt for vinyl flooring as an alternative. The problem with them is that they do not look nearly as aesthetically pleasing as tiles. They tend to look too industrialised and less homey. You have a wider variety to choose from if you opt for tiles. They come in different shapes, colours and sizes. You can be as creative as you want when it comes to how you want the end result to come to life. DY Tiling Services has a vast portfolio that you can go through and take inspiration from.

Non-Porous Tiles
If you do end up choosing tiles for your wet room, make sure that you go for non-porous tiles. Ceramic and porcelain made tiles are some examples of non-porous tiles. If you choose porous tiles like marble, limestone and other materials that would require regular sealing to protect it from being damaged by over exposure to water, you will end up spending a lot of money for maintenance alone. Therefore, choose tiles which are specifically made for washrooms.

Slip Resistant Tiles
It is very important that the material of the tiles that you intend to use are slip resistant. The tiles that you use should at least be an R11 or an R12 in the slip resistance rating. It is also worth looking into tiles with a matte finish compared to those with glossy and slippery exteriors.

Grouting is also an important factor to consider when you are choosing the best tiles for your wet room. The standard cement grout is best for wet rooms because it offers maximum flexibility. We make sure that your grout cement is made of the highest quality materials even if it costs a bit more. If you are looking for a water proof grout, we use the finest epoxy based grouts.
