The idea is fairly simple: Take a room, put a drain in the middle of it, and tile all four walls. You now have your very own wetroom. While this concept is popular in Europe, it has not gained the popularity or exposure here in the States. But as our nation continues to age, the idea of barrier-free interiors continues to be a focus in home remodeling, and wetrooms are the epitome of barrier-free spaces.

It's a beautiful bathroom that just happens to also be a wetroom.
