It is amazing how much you can enjoy cleaning your restroom once it is renovated. The fixtures and materials you choose can reduce the stress of what was once a difficult task. If you are planning to renovate your space, here are 10 design ideas that make your custom bathroom easier to clean.

Handheld Shower Sprayer

Whether you are remodeling your bathtub or shower, a handheld shower sprayer makes it easier to rinse out the space. You do not have to bend over to wash the surface of your bathtub or shower.

Quartz Countertop

If you are upgrading your vanity, you may want to use quartz for your countertop. This engineered material creates the look of a natural stone, but you do not have to worry about the heavy maintenance. All you have to do is wipe it with soap and water.

Oil-Rubbed Bronze Finish

When it is time to upgrade your faucets and fixtures, consider using an oil-rubbed bronze finish. It is resistant to fingerprints and water spots, which makes it easier to wipe down your hardware.

Frameless Glass Shower

A metal shower frame collects a lot of grunge, and you may lose pieces of the sealant if you scrub it too hard. The solution is switching to a frameless glass shower. You can wipe the glass without worrying about the grunge.

Shower Base

If you dislike cleaning grout lines, trade in your tiled floor for a shower base. The solid surface is easier to wash because you do not have to worry about multiple tiles or grout lines. You can even rinse it with your handheld shower sprayer.

Large Format Tile or Porcelain Slabs

You can reduce the amount of grout lines you have to wash by using large format tile or porcelain slabs. You may even find a material that does not contain any grout lines at all. It is recommended to use thin slab porcelain because it is durable and does not require sealing.

Protective Coating for Shower Glass

Use a coating that protects your shower glass from water spots. Clarvista is a popular coating that works for the life of your shower glass. You can still wipe it down several times a month, but you want to use a cleaner recommended by the coating manufacturer.

Skirted Toilet

A toilet with a skirted base is smooth all over, and this means you do not have to worry about abnormal shapes collecting dust or lint. You can easily wipe down the smooth surface of your skirted toilet.

Antimicrobial Toilet Seat

A toilet with an antimicrobial seat is more resistant to stains and fading than standard seats. There are some antimicrobial seats that feature a permanent glaze to prevent bacteria, mold and mildew.

Slide-Off Toilet Seat

It is easier to wash your toilet when you have a slide-off seat. All you have to do is remove the plastic covers on the screws, and you can easily slide the seat off for cleaning.
