Cleaning is not the most exciting activity. We can all agree on that. However, as tedious as you may find it, it is a necessity.

A bathroom is where you get prepared at the start of the day, clean yourself, and relax at the end of the day. Therefore, it’s incredibly important that the room itself has a clean and clear atmosphere. This can seem like a mammoth task.

However, this doesn’t have to be the case. There are a few choices you can make when decorating your bathroom which will make cleaning and tidying so much easier.

Read on to find out our top tips on how to cut down the time you spend doing chores, with a low maintenance bathroom:

Get rid of grout

Removing all grout is a great step towards a low maintenance bathroom.

Not only is grout outdated, but it requires far more time and energy to keep clean than other options.

Grouting is prone to collecting mould and damp, which will not only be hard work to clean but is a notorious health hazard. A room free of the ever-cracking adhesive means less cleaning and greatly reduces the chance of mould or damp developing.

Waterproof cladding is a good alternative to tiles. The fact that they don’t feature grout, and are 100% waterproof, means that they can simply be wiped down, and are highly unlikely to develop mould or damp.

As well as this plastic shower panels are available in a range of modern, decorative patterns which will greatly improve the aesthetic of your room.

Consider a skirted toilet

One of the toughest jobs involved with bathroom cleaning is of course, the toilet.

Crouching and bending to clean dirt and dust that has gathered around the base of your toilet can be an exhausting chore. However, this task can be made much less daunting by changing the design of your lavatory.

Skirted toilets are considerably lower maintenance than other designs. As they have fewer edges and sport smoother sides, there are fewer places for grime to get trapped. This is beneficial to you as less scrubbing is required.

Skirted toilets can add a touch of style to your bathroom, as they are far less common than other designs.

Hand-held showers

If you are looking for bathroom shower ideas to cut down cleaning time in your home, then a hand-held shower head is the perfect feature to encourage a quick and easy cleaning process.

This is because you can remove it from its place on the wall and use it as a tool to clean your other bathroom features.

Pairing a hand-held shower head with a wet wall is one of the most effective ways to simplify the maintenance of your bathroom. Fitting both designs will mean that you can use your shower head to rinse down the waterproof walls, give them a wipe over, then move on to the next thing!

Waterproof flooring

Choosing waterproof bathroom flooring rather than tiles, carpet or wooden boards for your home will speed up the cleaning process by a considerable amount.

This is because it can easily wiped clean, with no cracks or grout to scrub.

As well as this, there is less chance of damp and mould developing with waterproof flooring. These funky sights can be incredibly difficult to clean and add unnecessary time to the process.
