However, the Home Quality Mark (HQM) defines a wet room as:
'...a room used for domestic activities (such as cooking, clothes washing and bathing) which give rise to significant production of airborne moisture, e.g. a kitchen, utility room or bathroom.' NB For the purposes of HQM, drying space is also regarded as a wet room.
