QWhy should you try to make the shower former as large as possible?
Unlike with traditional shower trays, the benefit of a concealed shower former is that - if you have the space in the room - you’re able to maximise the showering area without the need for a shower enclosure. This visual series shows an area from wall to wall measuring 1650mm. Though a 900mm x 900mm former would have been fine, it’s even better to utilise the space by increasing the former to the full width of the alcove - 1650mm. This will capture and drain the water that would have splashed beyond the original 900mm x 900mm area.
QWhat is the smallest wet room you can have?
Wet rooms utilise space. It really doesn't matter what size room you're faced with. Whether a standard sized bathroom or a small en suite conversion, it all depends on how much of that room gets wet whilst showering and how much you mind. Consider this: if a wall-hung toilet is in a 1.5m x 1.5m room, is it going to be a pain for you if it gets wet? OTL have produced bespoke formers smaller than this size. It’s all down to personal preference. There is no room too big or too small that prevents you from having a wet room. In Visual Series 1 is an en suite conversion which is narrow and long . Visual Series 2 shows another small en suite with a pitched ceiling, with the whole floor to a gradient allowing water to run / drain regardless of where it lands on the floor.
