Many people choose to create their wetroom environment in an extra room in the house rather than converting their existing bathroom into one. The great thing about this is that you don’t need a huge amount of space to work with. Perhaps it could be in a basement, utility room or something similar.

And you also need to look into waterproof laminate flooring that is going to fit in with the rest of the style that you are going to create. You could also look into adding some literal warmth with underfloor heating.

From a design point of view, the only thing that you need to consider is that it is not going to affect the views across the room

So, you could always opt to add in some more flexible features such as a bench or chair. This gives you the option of having a more relaxing shower experience if you would like one. You could also install and adjustable shower so that it is easy to get it down to the height that you are looking for.
