When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, the wet area is one of the most commonly renovated areas among homeowners. This is due in part by it being the most used and abused part of the bathroom, since it is exposed to water and varying temperatures on a daily basis. This is why wet area remodels are so popular across the United States. By trusting the professional remodeling team at Bath Planet of Chicagoland, you can rest assured that your bathroom remodel is going to be in good hands. Specializing in bathroom remodels, this team can help you every step of the way to ensure that you get everything you need out of your renovation. Today, we are going to look at what the wet area of your bathroom is and how to focus on this area for the best outcome on your next bathroom renovation.

What Is The Wet Area Of A Bathroom?

The wet area of a bathroom refers to the shower or bathtub area. This is where most of your appliances, tile, and other materials are exposed to water on a daily basis—the areas that will stay wet even after you have used them. In some homes, the wet area of the bathroom is separate from the rest of the space —and can even be behind a partition or a glass enclosure, keeping it apart from your sink, toilet, and vanity area.It is important to use high-quality materials like premium acrylic surfaces when remodeling this area, as inferior products can become water damaged, and will rust or sprout mold growth easily. This can cause larger problems later down the road. Not to mention, inferior-made products are harder to clean —and will leave you spending much more time scrubbing or using harsh chemicals to keep looking decent. 

What Are The Benefits Of Remodeling The Wet Area?

There are many different benefits of remodeling the wet area, however, the benefits will depend on your needs and the condition of your current space. Popular projects include tub-to-shower conversions, and bathtub or shower replacements. Adding a walk-in bathtub or shower can add safety and accessibility features for those with limited mobility. Simply replacing your bathtub or upgrading your tile around the shower can help to give your bathroom a great new look while increasing the value of your home.

What Type Of Wet Area Remodels Are Offered?

At Bath Planet Of Chicago, there are many different wet area remodeling services that you can choose from. Today, we are going to look at three of the most popular services that are offered.

  • Walk-In Shower: Walk-in showers are one of the most modern solutions that you can add to your home. They add safety, convenience, and a great new look to just about any bathroom.
  • Tub-to-Shower Conversion: If you are wanting to get rid of a tub and convert it to a shower, a tub-to-shower conversion is ideal. This eliminates the need to step over a ledge and into a slippery tub, and will help you to save space in a bathroom where your tub sits unused and unneeded.
  • Bathtub Replacement: An old and deteriorating bathtub is an eyesore. Bathtubs can crack, rust, or discolor over time, and can also become quite hard to clean. Replacing it with a brand-new tub can do wonders for your bathroom, and is a quick and affordable home improvement project to take on.
