Once your bathroom remodel is complete, it’s important to care for this space properly to keep your fixtures and finishes looking their best. Good maintenance and cleaning will reduce wear and tear to prevent premature replacement, while also maintaining the value of your investment. However, time spent cleaning your bathroom is time you aren’t able to spend on leisure or other important activities. Building ease of maintenance into your bathroom remodel will reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning without sacrificing your goal of a sparkling bathroom.
Install Good Ventilation
Over time, moisture and humidity can take their toll on your bathroom’s finishes and fixtures, leading to warping, discoloration, and mold or mildew growth. One of the best ways to make your bathroom easier to clean and prevent many of the problems associated with high humidity is to install a good exhaust fan. Ventilation keeps your bathroom fresh and moisture-free by helping to draw in fresh air during and after a shower or bath. However, an aging fan may no longer provide sufficient ventilation for your bathroom; additionally, older models are often quite noisy, which makes them inconvenient or undesirable to use. Installing a new exhaust fan with quieter operation will ensure that your fan is both comfortable to use and capable of removing moisture effectively to protect your bathroom over the long term.
Provide Plenty of Storage
Storage is the key to efficient organization and less clutter. By reducing clutter in the bathroom, you’ll be able to clean surfaces much faster without the need to move or rearrange items as you clean. Limiting the number of items that remain on your counters regularly can even reduce the amount of dust that accumulates in this room to further speed your cleaning efforts. Finally, keeping your counters, floors, and other areas clear can also minimize the risk of scrapes, scuffs, and stains from toiletries or other items that might require deeper, more focused cleaning to address.
Mount Your Fixtures on the Wall
During a remodel, installing wall-mounted toilets, sinks, and vanities is a step toward less bathroom cleaning over time. Wall-mounted fixtures make cleaning your bathroom’s floor much easier; mounting fixtures on the wall also makes it simpler to spot leaks or other issues, rather than allowing signs of a problem to hide beneath furniture or fixtures that sit closer to the floor. If you prefer vanities or storage cabinets with legs, opt for choices with longer, thinner legs if possible to make viewing and reaching the space under these features easier. When there are few or no obstacles blocking the floor, sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming your bathroom becomes much less time-consuming, allowing you to spend less time in general focused on your bathroom and more on the other important tasks on your schedule.
