One area that gives everyone headaches when cleaning is grout. There are a few design options that eliminate grout from the equation entirely. Whether you decide to use stone panels for the walls or go with an easy to wash vinyl covering (just wipe down with a sponge). Another option for both walls and countertops is back painted glass. It gives you the option to customize color, and it is much easier to clean than tile full of grout. Plumbtile has options to

Another great place to save time and effort when cleaning is in the shower. Small tiles are often used in showers to allow the floor to slope towards a traditional center drain. Choosing a linear drain allows you to use larger tile that slopes uniformly to one direction, meaning you can use larger tiles and less grout, easier cleaning for you! Plumbtile has a great selection of linear drains and large format tiles to fit any style. Another great asset for cleaning with ease is a removable shower head. Hand held shower heads allow you to clean hard to reach areas with water right from your shower, and are also great for every day use.

Another great way to make cleaning a breeze is wall mounting the hardware in your bathroom. Wall mounted hardware catches less water residue and less dust, making cleaning easier and eliminating water pooling around the faucet bases which can lead to rust. You can also invest in a wall mounted toilet to make cleaning the floor easier, and keep the theme running throughout the bathroom.

Another important aspect of making cleaning easy is making sure you have a place in mind for everything in the bathroom, whether its hair dryers or extra towels. Building in specific drawers for specific items during a remodel can save you time and hassle later on. If you aren’t looking to build anything new, making your storage needs a focus of your bathroom update ensures you are never stressed about finding a place to stash extra items.

Taking the time to think through design details before you renovate a bathroom will save you time and help make cleaning a breeze later on.

The bathroom is also one room in the house that your friends and neighbors will judge you on. Not everyone is judgmental like that, but it’s hard to want to go somewhere when you know that their bathroom is worse than a truck stop and you’re afraid of catching something from being in the same vicinity as those mold/mildew ring around the bottom of the toilet or tub.
