A Guide to Walk-in and Wetroom Showers

Here at Roman we pride ourselves on being the leader in innovation, design and quality and at the forefront of bathroom and showering trends. The latest trends of Shower Enclosures include Walk-in Shower Enclosures and Wetroom Showers, which Roman offers a diverse collection of. However, many of you will only change your showering space once every 10 years, so you may not be aware of the latest styles of Shower Enclosures out there. To help you to get to grips with all the latest designs, here is a guide to some of Roman’s most popular Walk-in Shower Enclosures and Wetroom Showers.

Walk-in Shower Enclosures

First I will explain exactly what a Walk-in Shower Enclosure is. Walk-in Shower Enclosures do not feature a door, which makes them ideal for those who suffer with limited mobility as they eliminate awkward handles and doors. Often they will be created with curved glass, or a glass deflector panel around the showering area and this ensures the water is guided in to the showering space to keep your bathroom splash free.

Roman has an exciting range of stunning Walk-in Shower Enclosures in a variety of shapes and sizes. Below are a select few from Roman’s range, to help you understand the different options we provide.

Orbital 1700mm Colossus Walk-in Shower Enclosure

This generous enclosure has been intelligently designed to bow out and open up to a luxurious 1200 x 900mm showering space, which makes it the perfect bath replacement product. The Orbital Colossus Walk-in Shower Enclosure can be installed into a corner and you can either leave the enclosure open, or install an end panel to achieve your own individual look. You can install the Orbital Colossus straight to floor, using our Roman Shield Tanking Kit, or alternatively you can install it to our level access Roman Stone Shower Tray, which gives a wetroom look with the reassurance of a tray.

This Freestanding Walk-in Shower Enclosure will make a dramatic statement in your bathroom as its completely frameless and features luxury 10mm thick bevel edged glass. The level access tray to suit comes with an integrated stylish drying area which is removable for easy cleaning. Again the Walk-in Enclosure can also be installed straight to floor as a wetroom installation.

Wetroom Showers

Now we move on to the latest showering trend of Wetroom Showers, which are a more open alternative to shower enclosures and usually consist of just one glass panel. They can either be positioned in a corner or on a straight wall. Wetroom Panels can be installed onto a shower tray, but are more commonly installed straight down to floor. When installing straight to floor, your floor and walls must be waterproofed (tanked). You can use our Roman Shield to tank your space.

Roman’s collection of Wetroom Showers includes a diverse range of sizes, styles and designs to suit your space. Our Wetroom Showers allow you to achieve the minimalist spa-like hotel look and feel.
