Wet area & dry area

How can we separate the wet and dry area in the bathroom?

Call one area “democrats” and the other “republicans”. That should separate them, eh?

If you have children, there is no such thing as a "dry" area!

Hi Kris.

What the guys are sayin, in their own way, is we need more info. I noticed a thread of yours in the Advice Forum where you talk about some mold issues with tile.

Do you have a project you're working on? Are you remodeling or just wondering about cleaning, or waterproofing, or what?

I have made a few large walk in showers with no doors or glass at all. The shower must be 6x6 and the wall on one side is only 3' long. the dividing line is the entrance to the shower. Everything inside the shower gets waterproofed. Everything outside the shower will get an underlayment mat like strata mat or ditra. I know the strata mat helps to protect the floor from water also but its not a water proofer. Cuz like tileman said if you got kids water is gonna be everywhere
