Over the last few years, wet rooms have slid on the bathroom renovation scene as the new must-have trend – and it’s easy to see why. Wet rooms not only look amazing but they’re also practical when it comes to cleaning, as you can clean down the whole area without worrying about splashing the rest of your bathroom.
But what exactly is a wet room? Well, I’m glad you asked! A wet room is an open space shower room where all the surfaces are waterproofed so that they can get wet. Wet rooms can be extremely classy and luxurious whilst being great for a big family with messy kids and pets that like to splash around! It’s a style that definitely needs waterproofing done, but luckily you can easily find a bathroom waterproofing contractor in your local area.
Plus, adding a wet space to your bathroom could add value to your house when it comes time to sell. So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your renovation today with these 35 wet room bathroom ideas.
1. Brass details
Need space? This wet room has it all! I love how the brass fittings match the tones in the plant pot, wood plank across the tub and rattan stool that houses the towels and soap bars. I also love the addition of the permanent seat that has been built into the wall. You could use this as a seat or even a storage solution to display your favourite products.
2. Herringbone tiling
I love how the grey and white herringbone tiles trail from the wall onto the floor. This cleverly joins the bath area with the shower area, making the entire space appear larger than it is. And my eyes are drawn to the large round mirror on the back wall near the tub that opens up the space even more! There are so many different colours of herringbone styles and also different ways you can lay them, see these bathroom tile ideas for more inspo.
3. Floating skylight shower
How cool is the ceiling in this wetroom? The square skylight opens the space up to the outside and brings in so much natural light. I especially love the shower head that looks as if it’s floating. Using a shower head that faces down will give the effect of rain which adds to the tranquility of a wet room.
4. Blue, light and airy
This blue tiled wet room seems so light and airy with all those beautiful windows. This style of wet room would be perfect in a Hampton’s style home that has high ceilings. The glorious blue bathroom tiles add all of the coastal vibes. And if you’re wanting to separate the shower and bath, simply place a glass screen between the two areas!
5. Black frame shower screen
This neutral wet room is framed perfectly with sleek black hardware. The curved bathroom wall works nicely, making the rounded bath the feature of the room. I also love the addition of the rounded hanging light that compliments the other rounded shapes in the space.
6. Marble and mirror
At first glance I thought this was one long room but, after further inspection, I noticed there’s actually a large mirror installation in this space. I just love how this makes the marble appear to go on and on. Adding a large full length mirror to your space will not only be helpful for getting ready in the morning, but it will make your wet room seem a lot bigger than it is.
7. Monochrome finishes
If you want to seamlessly connect the various areas of your wet room using the same tiling across the entirety of the flooring, this will do the trick! The black flooring perfectly matches the black cabinetry and light fixtures. And the white works nicely with the white bathtub and crisp white walls.
8. Concrete cave
This concrete wet room reminds me of a cave with the rounded ceiling and mood lighting. Elevating your shower will make your space seem more interesting, while distinctly dividing the different areas of your bathroom.
9. Elegantly divine
How stunning is this elegant wet room? I absolutely love the bold marble tiling that has been used in the wet room area of the bathroom which makes this space seem like it is two rooms in one. Plus, the gold features of the shower, tap faucets, handles and that glorious round mirror really give another level of opulence and elegance to this bathroom.
10. Patterned tiles
This patterned tile feature wall is the star of this wetroom! The navy tones in the pattern are contrasted with an otherwise monochromatic bathroom with the black framed shower screens, cabinetry and mirror frame. The navy patterned tile feature wall is an interesting choice paired with black, but it seems to work well!
11. Wide space
If the space you’re working with doesn’t have any windows, using a skylight will help to bring some much needed light into the space. I love how wide and open this area appears due to the tiling that has been used on all the walls. The speckled terrazzo style is a creative touch that brings a level of intricacy to an otherwise simple space. This is a really lovely modern and contemporary bathroom.
12. Green with envy
Wow, I am definitely feeling green with envy for this fabulous wet room! I would feel like I am bathing in the emerald city with all this greenery surrounding me. The gold shower heads are an on-trend addition to this space, making it look luxurious and classy.
13. Tile variations
This trendy little space is filled with so many cleverly thought out design elements. The white subway tile that wraps around the walls of the vanity area is carried through to the wet room as well as the fascinating monochromatic tiling that covers the entirety of the floor. Talk to your bathroom tiler about ways you can utilise different design variations to bring a bit of creativity to your bathroom!
14. Terrazzo tiles
These amazing terrazzo tiles make this space seem like it’s never-ending. I love the layout of this wet room that separates the wet area from the vanity, however, still makes the spaces look like they are one. The bathtub is outside, which is amazing. If you love this idea, check out these outdoor bathrooms and outdoor showers.
15. Checker print
This one is for all my quirky and creative people! How cool is this checker print wet room? It really is taking the classic black and white bathroom to the next level.
The creative tiling is pretty much all you need to make the bathroom look interesting and quirky. I love how there is just a simple white bath that breaks up the pattern as well as that cool bright yellow stool that really lifts the overall vibe of the wet room. Bathroom decor can make all the difference to change a look or mood.
16. Gold fittings
This bathroom is so sweet and simple, with just the right amount of thoughtful touches. I love the sleek white herringbone tiles that cover the side wall contrasted with the dark navy grey planks on the other wall. And I’ve got to give a special mention to those glamorous shiny gold fittings.
17. Room for all
This large wet room has room for the whole family! After a long day in the pool, this wet room would be the perfect family bathroom for everyone (even your pets) to wash off! You could have all the kids and dogs splashing around in here and not even have to worry about water going everywhere in this waterproof space.
18. Pink perfection
Oh, I do love me some pink and the focus of this room is definitely that pretty pink wet room which my eyes are immediately drawn to. I love how the rest of the bathroom is white, neutral and quite muted which really puts the emphasis and attention on the wet room. The pink towels are a thoughtful addition, matching the tones of the pink tiles – beautiful!
19. Symmetrical and trendy
The symmetrical shape of this wet room really calls for the rest of the elements to follow suit. This can be seen in the double shower heads which are placed on either side of the wet room as well as that tall greenery behind the tub. I also love that the bathtub is a grand feature of this space.
20. Wooden wet room bathroom
The wooden features in this wet room really give the space a sauna-like feel which brings warmth and tranquility. I love how the entrance is completely glass which makes this space seem very open and airy, especially with those large windows surrounding the bathtub area. I can just imagine having a nice warm bubble bath in the tub then finishing off with a shower to wash off all the suds.
Just imagine if the marble tiles continued onto the floor, it would have a totally different feel because when you add timber to a room it adds texture and softens a room. There are so many different ways that you can do this too, so check out these wooden bathroom ideas for a bit of inspo.
21. Stunning skylight
This space is really something special. I absolutely love the wooden skylight roof which is a significant feature in this space. The wood look from the roofing has been translated into the cabinetry and wooden decor pieces. Also, to create a difference in the space I would definitely recommend considering a tiled area for your wet area, just as this wet room has done.
22. White on white wet room
White not only brings so much calm and serenity into a space but it will also make an area look super crisp and clean. I love the addition of the seating area in this wet room that could double up as a place to put your products or to prop your leg up when you’re needing to shave.

23. A place to sit
This grey, black and white bathroom really makes the most of a small space by adding a wet room at the end of it. I love how the screen is made up of clear glass and is framed with black so that your eyes are drawn to the area instead of immediately focusing on the small space. The wet room has a place to sit and ponder which product you’ll use next out of your polka dot built in shelving.
24. Island vibes
Okay, I am obsessed with this wet room. This style is so Palm Springs or Island tropical with the sandy tones and outdoor courtyard filled with large palms. The large bathtub is certainly the feature of the bathroom whilst the wooden ladder and stool provide practicality and functionality to be able to hang your towel and clothes off of.
25. Rock wall
This wet room looks like it could almost be an outdoor bathroom with that rock wall and pebble flooring combination. I also love the lighting that has been used about the rock wall that makes it look as if the sunshine is peering in. The concrete slates on the floor also provide a smooth surface to step rather than stepping right onto the pebbles.
26. Medieval castle homage
This wet room reminds me of a castle from a movie or tv show set with its rustic brick finishes and Juliet-style balcony window. But whilst this wet room could pass as a medieval castle wet room, the boho stool and clever double shower heads bring a welcome modern touch. Need to install a shower head for your new bathroom?

27. Feminine touches
I just love the feminine touches in this wet room that are oh so romantic. The femininity of the pink towel, pink shower products and pretty flower arrangement brings in a girly element to an otherwise masculine bathroom with the dark hardware in the shower, on the sink and around the mirror.
28. Long and narrow wet room
This bathroom design makes the most of this long and narrow space by the strategic placement of the wet space at the end of the room. My eyes are drawn to the large white bathtub which is perfectly placed in the centre of the wet room. This would be the perfect master bathroom to unwind in while sipping a glass of champagne in the tub after a long day in the office.
29. Bold marble wet room bathroom
Some like it bold, and if that’s you then marble design will be sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests. I love how the dark grey grain from the marble matches with the speckled grey tiling in the flooring.
30. Loft space
This wet room is situated in a very cool, urban loft space. Lofts are especially great for inner city living when space is compromised. I love how the wet room looks like a work of art in this space where you could go from the exercise bike to the shower and then finally ending up snuggled on the couch in front of your favourite show.
31. Long windows
The four long windows in this space emphasise the high ceilings in this wet room. I love the modern finishes in the wooden flooring, simple black shower faucet and the rectangular edges of the vanity. I would love to take a tranquil shower in this wet room with all that natural warm light bouncing off my skin.
32. Open to the outdoors
How sweet is this trendy wet room? I love how the large window opens it up to a lush courtyard with palms and greenery. And I love the neutral tones of the bathroom where wooden and concrete elements make the space look so chic.
33. Clean and white
Here is another beautiful white bathroom that looks so clean and inviting. Even though there is only one tiny window in this wet room, the light really bounces off the shiny surfaces of the tile which makes the wet room look so bright and airy. The addition of the wooden seat and the colourful bath mat brings warmth and a homely touch to this space.
34. Thriving greenery
Not only does adding greenery into your wet room look good and freshen up the space but it’s also great for your plants. Your greenery will thrive in a steamy wet room as you can see by the trailing greenery that’s growing wild up and down these walls. Want to see more, you know you do… here are a few of our favourite bathroom plants.
35. Wrap around tiling
I definitely left one of my favourites to last. Check out that wrap-around tiling that is so artistic and creative! It would feel as if you were looking at a piece of art everytime you lay back in this tub after a long day at work.
