The bathroom is not the easiest space in a house to keep clean. However, you would be surprised to learn how enjoyable cleaning your restroom can be after a renovation. All you have to do is choose the right elements. To help you get started, here are 10 ideas that make cleaning your bathroom an easier task.
Removable Shower Sprayer
Installing a removable, handheld shower sprayer makes it easier to rinse your bathtub or shower. Use it to wash the surface without bending over for a long period of time.
Frameless Glass Shower
A metal frame tends to collect grunge over time, and wiping the frame too hard causes damage to the sealant. You can avoid the grunge by investing in a frameless glass shower, which you can use a squeegee on daily and then wipe down once a week with a cleaning solution.
Solid Shower Base
A tiled floor means taking the time to scrub the grout lines. You can save yourself time and reduce the need for elbow grease by replacing your tiled floor with a solid shower base. Cleaning your shower is then a breeze because you only need to wipe and rinse the base.
Large Format Tile or Porcelain Slabs
Large format tile or porcelain slabs do not contain a lot of grouts lines, and there are several large slabs that do not contain any grout lines. When choosing this option, it is best to use a thin porcelain slab because it retains its beautiful finish and does not need to be sealed.
Protective Coating for Glass Dividers
You can avoid water spots by investing in a protective coating for your glass shower dividers. There are many brands that allow you to wipe down the glass without ruining the coating, but you need to use a cleaner that has been approved by the manufacturer.
You can create extra floor space by investing in a wall-mounted toilet. Cleaning the floor is much easier because you can mop or sweep the area, and you do not have to get on your hands and knees to wipe those hard-to-reach spots.
Skirted Toilet Base
The nooks and crannies of a standard toilet collect dust over time, and you have to get into an uncomfortable position to wipe these areas. However, a skirted toilet base is easier to wipe down because of its smooth surface and sleek lines.
Slide-Off Toilet Seat
A slide-off toilet seat features removable plastic covers on the screws for sliding the seat off. This means you can clean the seat without hovering over the toilet itself. When you are finished cleaning, simply slide the seat back on and replace the plastic covers.
Quartz Vanity Top
Quartz is a great choice for your vanity top because this engineered material looks like real stone. It is resistant to scratches and stains, which means you do not have to work as hard over time to maintain it.
Oil-Rubbed Bronze Finish
Upgrade your faucet and other fixtures to a durable material, such as an oil-rubbed bronze finish. Oil-rubbed bronze is easy to maintain and resistant to unwanted fingerprints and water spots.
