TECHNICAL POST: Shower trays Vs Wet Room Tiling.
When you think Shower Trays it’s easy to think of 1990s deep plastic square bowls that you have to step into, but things have evolved! *
There are shower trays now have such a slim profile that they can be fitted as an alternative to a wet room tiling system with the same seamless look. *
The big advantages these trays have is the ease and speed of fitting plus the long term reliability of them (no leaks). Wet room systems by their nature take a lot of preparation and skill to fit properly. The wet room former, once positioned, has to be sealed with a suitable membrane or tanking material and then the tiles are carefully cut to fit. Remember too that grout isn’t waterproof so this tanking is critical to the system not leaking.
Depending on the look you’re going for it’s well worth considering slim trays as an alternative to wet room systems. They’re not cheap but can work out considerably cheaper in installation costs and ongoing maintenance compared to wet room tiling.
