The bathroom of any home is a room of great importance for a number of reasons, being a location often frequented and thus in need of regular cleaning. There is no reason however to make this cleaning a really annoying chore due to poor design solutions. If you have a new home that gives you a chance to move forward with a new design or your old one is in need of some remodeling, then this will be an excellent time to pull things off. The guidelines ahead are meant to provide you with the tools you need to pull the project off with both aesthetics and practicality for excellent results:
If you can help it, you should go for solutions that employ the least grout to pull off. Solid surfaces are a good example, as having no grout and fewer lines of that kind will allow you to handle house cleaning in the future with less fuss. Stone slabs for example will have their own seam lines, but by comparison to the usual tiles used in bathrooms they will be far smaller and thus easier to clean and sanitize. Fewer areas with grout mean a much smaller chance at nigh-impossible to clean mold, so consider this solution as you move forward.
The use of Caesar stone can also become a nice and classy solution you can count on. It will give the walls of your bathroom a really nice look while at the same time possessing the same advantages as those mentioned above for stone slabs. Using it will allow you to handle the design with easy cleaning in minds.
Vinyl surfaces can also be used around the bathroom to great effect, as they have almost no seams and are waterproof to boot. The wider variety of colors you can use as well as different textures will allow you to have a lot to work with for a really easy cleaning and a wonderful look.
You can also make use of back-painted glass for your walls as well as counters in the bathroom. If you have a small bathroom this will be an excellent solution to make it count and appear slightly larger than it already is.
There are areas around the walls you can still keep from being tiled instead making use of other solutions such as paint. High moisture levels in the bathroom mean you will need to work with a paint specifically made to resist such conditions. This will keep you from facing mold and mildew and cleaning them far too often. Combining this with good air conditioning to reduce excess moisture will help in the long run.
Look for a ventilation solution such as a dehumidifier if you think the bathroom will see too much in terms of hot and humid days. This will really help keep unpleasant smells out and the entire bathroom looking and feeling fresh.
Making use of larger tiles when you want to use tiling will ensure fewer grout lines in the design and a cleaning solution ( How to Getting Your Home Ready for Winter ) that will be far easier by comparison.
