I want to remove the bath and have a walking shower instead. When I went to the design visit in wickes the lady asked me what my floor was and I said concrete but it's actually lino and. Under that it's concrete so did I answer correct? I'm not sure.
Anyway she said I can't have a wetroom in a concrete floor and their workmen don't do it. She said I have to have a shower tray and enclosure or glass panel etc. But not a wetroom floor.
How difficult actually is it? And how much would it cost on top.

We’ve just had one installed the underfloor was concrete, I think it was then covered in some sort Or sealant then something call “jackoboard” then underfloor heating then tiles. I‘m no builder but logically I would have thought that concrete is the most suitable floor. Good luck with you wet room

I’ve just googled it you certainly can you have concrete but you have to cut a drainage channel into it which trust me made a mess from hell.
We replaced everything totally gutted the bathroom back to the bricks ceiling new wiring lights everything and also did a small utility room (not a wet room floor), everything has been tiled floor to ceiling we bought high end sink loo shower etc total approx £14k!
