Let's be honest. Most of us don't enjoy cleaning the bathroom. Because bathrooms are dirty by nature, you probably spend a lot of time cleaning them. Some bathroom features often prove easier to maintain than others. However, we all love a clean bathroom. Why not make life a bit simpler and create a less cluttered bathroom design that is easier to clean?

Implementing these design strategies will give you a bathroom that not only looks and feels like your ideal bathroom, but is also easy to clean.

Get rid of grout

Most people consider getting rid of dirty lines one of the least pleasant tasks when cleaning a bathroom. If you've made low maintenance your goal, avoid creating seams and cracks that are difficult to clean. Use solid surface choices like stone, marble or glass. These surfaces resist bacteria and stains.

In areas where you don't have to use tile, paint makes another great option. Many specialists carry specially formulated options resistant to mildew.

If you cannot eliminate grout lines entirely, choose larger sized tiles. Large tiles come in sizes all the way to up 60 by 120 cm and require fewer grout lines.

White grout stains easily, which makes it hard to maintain. If you have to have smaller tiles in your bathroom design, try grey coloured grout instead. Stains will look less noticeable, making your cleaning job easier.

Simplify your shower

simple shower choiceShowers often accumulate dirt and soap scum. Incorporate a shower that doesn't take as much effort to clean. An open shower design will eliminate the need to clean glass or the shower frame.

If you want to have a glass door or enclosure, choose a frameless option to prevent grime. An aluminium frame often acts as a magnet for dirt, and eliminating the frame entirely will eliminate this chore. There are also several options for coating glass and frames that help repel water and soap scum. You'll only need some basic cleaner and a squeegee to wipe down the shower.

If you don't like cleaning glass or frames at all, consider using a shower curtain. Most are easy to clean and add visual warmth to your bathroom decor.

A handheld showerhead can also prove helpful when you clean your bathroom. You can simply hose down everything as you clean.

Choose wall-mounted fixtures

You may have difficulty cleaning your bathroom counters in areas around your fixtures. Dirt, dust and hair collect in hard-to-reach places and make it time-consuming to properly clean your bathroom.

Consider installing wall-mounted fixtures to eliminate this problem. Wall-mounted bathroom features don't collect as much grime. Wall-mounted toilets and faucets make it especially easy to keep the bathroom clear. With fewer obstacles on the floor or counter, wiping everything down becomes much easier.

If you don't want a wall-mounted toilet, consider one with smooth sides to minimise the places that easily collect dust, dirt and bacteria.

Maintain proper ventilation

Cleaning and removing mould not only requires a lot of work, but it could also prove hazardous to your health. To reduce the time spent removing mould, decrease the amount of moisture in your bathroom. Make it a priority to mount a quality fan and open windows, as these features will dry or suck out any lingering moisture.

Get organised

Any room becomes much more difficult to clean when clutter covers it. Less clutter means less time spent cleaning. You can remove this step by incorporating customised storage into your bathroom design. Invest in cabinets and shelves for extra storage to ensure you have a place for everything.

Level your floors

Uneven bathroom floors make a bathroom harder to clean and more difficult to maintain. Water and mildew can accumulate.

Install a slightly sloped floor and a drain to help to prevent standing water and mould. You should also put in a concrete underlay to further prevent mould growth under the floor.

The less time you spend cleaning your bathroom, the more time you can spend doing the things you enjoy most.

    Howard - Davison

  • "My wife is especially grateful, with the prospect of a fantastic new kitchen early in the New Year. She is in a wheel chair and we plan to take most of the height out of the kickboard so that there is a double bonus for her replacement of the tired old kitchen with the beautiful new one, as well as it being much lower and therefore much easier for her to use."
    Rob and Judy - Merewether
