Hygiene is important in any room in your home, but it’s crucial in the bathroom. There are a lot of germs present in the bathroom and if you don’t stay on top of the cleaning, it can be very bad for your health. But cleaning the bathroom is probably last on your list of things you love doing, so are there ways to make it easier?

There are some simple design choices when renovating your bathroom which makes it so much quicker to clean. Here are the best design tips to create a more hygienic bathroom. 

Use More Tiles 

When it comes to the flooring and walls in the bathroom, tiles are always the best way to go. Cleaning bathroom tiles is quick and easy so you can stay on top of hygiene without spending hours scrubbing. Sometimes the grout between the tiles can collect dirt but it’s easily cleaned without too much trouble. Tiles are also an excellent style choice with many different designs available. Using tiles throughout the bathroom is one of the best ways to make it more hygienic and make it look amazing too. 

Consider A Wet Room 

You can take the tiles to the next level by turning your bathroom into a wet room and tiling all of the surfaces. Wet rooms are a great investment that adds value to your home and it makes it a lot easier to clean too. All you need to do is give it a quick wipe down once you are finished showering, so routine cleaning is less of a chore. Although installing a wet room can be expensive, it gives your bathroom a luxury feel, so it’s definitely worth it. 

4 Design Features That Make Your Bathroom More Hygienic

Sensor Taps 

We’re all used to seeing sensor taps in public bathrooms, but have you considered using them at home? Touching the taps to turn them on and off when washing our hands can spread a lot of germs, which is why sensor taps are used so much. If you’re concerned about hygiene, you should consider installing some of your own sensor taps. The other great thing about sensor taps is that they cut back on water usage, so you’ll save a bit of money at the same time. 

Wall Hung Toilets

We all know that space at the back of the toilet that is tough to get to when you are cleaning. You do your best, but you always feel like you’re missing bits and that dirt builds up over time. The best way around that is to install a wall hung toilet instead. They look much neater and all of the pipework is hidden. When you’re cleaning, you can easily get into the space underneath so you don’t get a buildup of dirt. They’re particularly good for small bathrooms because they give the illusion of more space. 

If you are concerned about the level of hygiene in your bathroom, you should rethink the design. These simple design tweaks will drastically cut your cleaning time and make your bathroom much more hygienic.
