How to Design an Easy to Clean, Mould Free Bathroom

A new bathroom is a pleasure to use, especially when you’ve spent a lot of money on renovation and redecoration. But what about when it comes time to clean it?

The best bathroom makeovers are the ones that are easy to keep clean. Not only do they save you precious time, but they also reduce the chances of mould and are more hygienic for you and your family to use. A beautiful low maintenance bathroom will also attract potential buyers when it comes time to sell your home.

In this article, we’ll look at some bathroom design features to create a space that’s easier to keep clean and that attracts less mould.

Large format tiles

Using very small tiles, and therefore excessive grout creates a magnet for grime and stains. The grout will need regular cleaning to ensure that mould is kept at bay.

But the larger the tile, the fewer grout lines you will have. Large porcelain sheets can cover entire bathrooms walls – meaning no grout lines and elimination of mould.

Upsized tiles are not only on trend in Melbourne for creating a bathroom with the wow factor, they also make cleaning your bathroom less of a headache.

Solid Surfaces

Corian is a solid surface product made up of natural minerals and acrylic resin that you can use for an easy clean, stain resistant surface in your Melbourne bathroom reno.

It’s a product that is highly resistant to mould and bacteria growth and why it’s commonly used for bathroom sinks, bathroom countertops, and shower bases. Check out how great this Corian shower base looks in the photo below.

Frameless shower screens

Heavily framed shower screens are another magnet for grime, mould and stain build up, especially near and around the frame. Do yourself a favor and look at using other shower options for your Melbourne bathroom makeover.

Frameless shower screens, walk-in shower panels or semi-frameless shower screens are much easier to keep clean and attract less soap scum and grime to worry about. The more glass you have, and the fewer brackets, the easier it is to wash down the shower screen.

The glass wall shower screen in the bathroom reno below would require just a quick squeegee after use and that’s it!

A Corian shower niche seen in the bathroom renovation below is also an attractive and functional aspect to hold shampoo bottles and soap. Quickly rinse after showering to reduce cleaning time and mould build up.

Under-tile Heating

Imagine walking barefoot into your bathroom on a cold winter’s morning without getting chilled to the bone.

Under-tile heating is a cost-effective way to add warmth to a bathroom, plus remove dampness that can cause mould. It’s cheap to operate when paired with a whole-house heating system and adds delightful luxury and comfort to your bathroom.
