Wetrooms Influencing Bathroom Design in Northampton and Elsewhere

Although more common in Europe, wetrooms are finding their way into American homes due to their accessibility and ease of maintenance. They feature an open space where the shower, sink, and toilet aren’t separated by partitions. Existing traditional bathrooms in Northampton homes can be modified by Northampton bathroom remodelers like Valley Home Improvement, and turned into wetrooms.

Bathrooms with Benefits

With no curbs or partitions to hinder mobility, wetrooms are ideal for persons with disabilities, who make up around a fifth of Massachusetts’ population (as of the 2012 CDC Disability and Health Data System). They can get into a wetroom with their mobility aids without needing to overcome a curb or an obstacle.
