24/7 Wall St.: Eight Amazing Home Amenities for the Rich

Wet Room

Location: Los Angeles
Home price: $15 million
Square footage: 10,000

How can you enjoy the experience of water immersion without jumping in a bath or a spa? Build a well-ventilated wet room with multiple types of showerheads, including a steam feature, and install a bench to sit or lie down. If that sounds complicated and expensive, it is, but it is also likely to be a very popular room in your home. In an ultra-expensive version of a wet room, an owner might install slatted wood flooring made not from oak but from ipê, a South American wood deemed more sustainable than teak.

Morris’s architectural view: “The basic idea of a wet room doesn’t necessary add cost because you can put in one zone a separate bath, shower, steam. Some have LED lights, which are used for various effects.”
