It’s always great to relax in a freshly cleaned bathroom but, as one of the busiest rooms in any home, it can be tough to keep it clean 100% of the time. Luckily, your remodeling contractor can help you out with a few upgrades designed to make this intimate area spic and span more easily. These tips can range from simply switching from one type of material to another or a complete overhaul of the entire room. Here are a few clever ways from our experts at Bella Kitchen & Design that can help you make bathroom maintenance a breeze.
A clean bathroom begins with sensible design choices. Unless you’re a fan of frequent cleaning, you’ll want to make certain decisions that reduce how much dirt and grime can accumulate in your bathroom. Consider the following upgrades on your next remodeling project.
- Reduce the number of things that make contact with the bathroom floor. This includes floor-standing vanities that are prime breeding grounds for mold and bacteria. Use a suspended or a table-top sink instead.
- A beautiful backsplash can be just as good in a bathroom vanity as it is in the kitchen. Ask your contractor about installing a waterproof backsplash against your bathroom sink.
- Avoid small tiles. The bigger your floor and wall tiles are, the less grout you will need. Mold and fungi thrive on high moisture and tile grout so it’s best to lessen its use overall.
- Use reusable air filters and clean them regularly to ventilate your bathroom and control the humidity inside.
Even if the rest of your home isn’t particularly minimalist, it can still work well in your bathroom. Minimalism aims to remove almost everything that is unnecessary and this is one of the best ways to approach a bathroom remodel. If you are able, talk to your bathroom and kitchen designer to only stick to the bare essentials. The fewer things you have, the easier it is to keep the bathroom clean.
