Well, the wet room … that was a first for me and my husband. As Mike showed us around the apartment space, including how to operate the induction cooktop, we reached the bathroom at last. Sliding door, with sink and countertop at the left wall, and toilet at the right. There’s a big window on the wall straight ahead, with a pull-down window shade. Very effective drain in the floor.
Mike said it was a “wet room,” again something I’d never heard of, and said it had been an experiment. He’s an architect. So you slide the door shut, and turn on the shower. The rainshower water flow is vertical and fairly controlled, so it’s not like being in a swimming pool, and not everything gets drenched, but most of the floor does get wet. It drains surprisingly quickly, but remains wetter longer than we all experience at altitude in Rocky Mountain states. You need to keep the window shade pulled down so that most of the water sheets off of it, and so that its surface is exposed to allow it to continue drying. It all functions as a bathroom, but requires some extra coordinating to deal with showering and needing the toilet before or immediately after. And while showering, the rest of the room isn’t getting used. As with any British bathroom, there’s not an electrical outlet in it, so hairdryer (included with the stay) or any other electrical item has to be plugged in and used elsewhere. That electrical regulation actually makes sense with this wet room.
So it wasn’t intolerable, just different. But you’re in The City Different, so I imagine that you’ll do just fine.
