No one likes cleaning the bathroom, but bacteria and mold can quickly build up and negatively impact your family’s health if it isn’t cleaned correctly. However, there are a few steps you can take to remodel and replenish your bathroom, so it is designed to be easy to clean. Read on for a few simple design tips that will help eliminate bathroom messes and make maintaining a sparkling clean bathroom easy.
Use Large-Format Tiles
Keeping bathroom grout clean is one of the more time-consuming elements of cleaning a bathroom. If you install large-format tiles in your bathroom, however, you have significantly less grout to clean. Additionally, It may be tempting to save money by using cheap silicone and grout, but these actions can cost you more in the long run. An easy-to-clean bathroom will consist of quality tile and grout materials that avoid dirty buildup and mildew growth.
Fit a Bath Deck to a Freestanding Bath
A freestanding bath can be an attractive design element, but if it is placed so close to the wall that you have trouble cleaning between the wall and the tub, a lot of dirt can accumulate. Instead, you can add a “bath deck” that creates an easy-to-clean bathroom while creating a useful storage area for toiletries.
Get Your Ventilation Right
An easy-to-clean bathroom comes from more than just tile choice or wet area designs. Installing correct ventilation prevents high humidity from developing and leading to mold and mildew growth in your shower.
Coat Shower Walls and Doors with Repellent
You can help prevent moisture buildup and mold growth in the shower by coating the shower walls and doors with a water repellant. These products let water slide down the shower walls while preventing hard water stains and moisture buildup.
Build Better Storage Areas
Keeping bathroom cabinets organized is a great habit that will keep your bathroom easy-to-clean as well as well-organized. You can also add more towel racks if necessary, to give your wet towels a proper place to dry off where they won’t damage fragile fixings or walls.
Remember General Cleaning Tips:
When it is time to clean your bathroom, it doesn’t need to be as grueling as it has been in the past. There are a few tips you can remember for an easy-to-clean bathroom:
- Use high-quality cleaners and the correct tools for each surface
- Keep a canister of disinfecting wipes in your bathroom to have on hand for quick cleanups.
- Used dryer sheets are statically charged, which makes them great for picking up hair and dust bunnies; these sheets help you clean up small messes without using the vacuum cleaner.
- Use a foaming soap or liquid soap dispenser rather than bar soap to wash your hands, as bar soap can create quite a mess on the counter.
By following these tips and building an easy-to-clean bathroom from the ground up, you may soon find that cleaning your bathroom is the easiest task on your to-do list.
