Many wet rooms have a glass panel for containing splashes, but that’s not the only way to section off the shower part of your wet room. A tiled partition wall is also a great way to stop water from flowing all over the room, while providing the easy walk-in access that makes wet rooms so popular.

Be practical and take advice on whether your floor will take the weight of a cast-iron bath, as they are very heavy. If it won’t, then composite or acrylic versions are good alternatives. If you decide to place your bath near a wall or window, do plan plenty of room around it to get behind for cleaning.
Alternatively, invest in a shower bath that bows out at the tap end. Available in rounded and L shapes, it will give you more room to manoeuvre when showering. Remember, though, the wider end will mean the bath takes more water to fill. Combine the two by having a fixed-head shower above and a hand-held spray on the bath taps below. You’ll find the latter useful when bathing children or cleaning the tub.
