If you’ve never remodeled a bathroom before, then you may be wondering what the wet-area of a bathroom is. As the name infers, wet areas are the areas within your bathroom where the water systems are located. This area includes your bathtub and shower. Others may refer to this as the bathroom’s wet zone too. Inversely, the dry area of your bathroom includes the vanity and toilet. The dry zone is the area of your bathroom that’s more utilized by house guests.
Why would anyone do a wet-area only remodel?
There are a few reasons why wet-area only remodels are one of our most requested projects. Often times, upgrading your shower and bathtub will make your entire bathroom feel brand new. If you maintain your bathroom well, but the tub and tile could use some sprucing up, then a wet-area only remodel is perfect for you.
Wet-area only remodels are also more budget friendly. If you don’t have the funds for a complete remodel but are able to make some improvements, a wet-are only remodel is worth considering. If you’re really in a pinch, you can do the easier stuff on your own. For instance, you can replace the light fixtures or swap out your vanity mirror. While some parts of your bathroom will be easier to DIY, it’s crucial that you work with a professional for the wet-area. It’s also very important to use licensed professionals for electrical and major plumbing work too. A shoddy remodel job done by an inexperienced handyman will cost you a lot of time and money.
Lastly, some clients prefer wet-are only remodels because they are completed more quickly. Depending on the needs of your project, the wet area installation may take as little as 1 day. Our American Home Remodeling team is trained, licensed, and will handle the entire process of your remodel project. We aim to make it as hassle free as possible for you.
