Designing An Easy To Clean Bathroom

Bathrooms are the worst for collecting the yuckiest of grime and germs. Not everyone has a housekeeper, so when you are the one who has to do the cleaning, your design choices will make a big impact on you every day. If you implement the strategies below, you can end up with a bathroom that looks and feels like a dream bathroom but cleans and organizes just as easily.


1. Use Little to No Grout

Scrubbing grout lines has to be one of the least favorite chores when cleaning a bathroom. Dirt and grime love to cling to the gritty grout between tiles. To banish it from your bathroom for good, try a glass or waterproofed real-stone veneer.


2. Tile Walls, for Quick Cleaning

To cut down on time spent repainting or cleaning walls, go for a tiled finish rather than paint or wallpaper. Painted walls can get dirty very quickly in a bathroom but tiled walls are quick and easy to clean with a damp or wet cloth and will save a lot of elbow grease.


3. Wall-Hung Features, Get Off the Floor

Use wall-hung vanity units or a wall-mounted toilet to keep the floor as free as possible makes it so much easier to clean around the entire area, especially the floor. You can also consider wall-mounted faucets, which can be a better choice than deck-mounted faucets. carrying water and soap residue away from the faucet instead of having it all collect at the base. All fixtures like this should be easy to clean, making way to be more organized.


4. No-Groove Toilets

Speaking of toilets, if you never liked cleaning in the crevices near the floor around the toilet getting a one-piece model toilet was made for you. You may spend a little bit more for a one-piece model, which is molded from a single piece of porcelain, but the amount of scrubbing you save may make it worthwhile. Plus, you don’t have to get up close and personal with the nasty bits– and it will look just as neat.


5. Easy-Care Flooring

Practicality is key in a bathroom, and your choice of flooring can be crucial. Any flooring with divots and crevasses can easily build up grime and germs. Choosing a joint-free floor will be the most hygienic and easiest to clean.


6. You’re Can Say No Too Glass

Glass can be one of the most time-intensive and least satisfactory surfaces to keep looking good. An option is a frosted or patterned glass which is less likely to show every water spot or streak. This keeps things minimal, without spending too much time to keep the glass perfectly clean.
