Wetroom Conversion in Dulwich (for 'disabled' use)

before conversion to wetroom
We were asked to convert a redundant room into a ground floor wet room. As specialists in creating safe environments for disabled and elderly customers, this was well within our capabilities.

To prepare the room, an external door that was not in use was panelled over. Access to the room would be via an existing door from the hall. The floor was fitted with coved and welded non slip vinyl, making a waterproof, safe and hygienic environment. All the walls were fitted with waterproof laminated panels.

The wash-hand basin was relocated to the wall where the door used to be, allowing ample space to install a new tall toilet and a shower area. We added a thermostatically controlled shower valve, folding shower seat and half-height doors around the shower area.

The final result - a bright, functional, easy to clean wetroom, making excellent use of a redundant room.
