How to design a bathroom that is easy to clean

Designing a bathroom can be an exciting and fulfilling task. However, as you plan your dream bathroom, it is important to consider how easy it will be to clean and maintain its pristine condition. The good news is that with a few smart choices, you can have a bathroom that is both beautiful and easy to clean. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips to help you design a bathroom that is easy to clean.

Size of your tiles

Abacus Genus Porcelain Marble Tile 60 x 60

One of the things that you can do to ensure that your bathroom is easy to clean is to pay attention to the size of your tiles. If you go for larger tiles, like the Abacus Genus 60cm x 60 cm, you will have less grout space to clean. Additionally, porcelain tiles that can be installed close together will minimize grout space even further. This means that you will have fewer hard-to-reach nooks and crannies where dirt and grime can accumulate.

Bathroom Furniture

Be mindful of the furniture and fixtures you select for your bathroom since they can contribute to the ease of cleaning. While ornate cabinetry and shelving may look fantastic, it’s essential to assess how easy it will be to clean fully. Simple, streamlined designs, such as the D-Neo from leading brand Duravit, will make cleaning a breeze since there will be fewer nooks and crannies for dirt to get caught in.

Countertops and Basins

Abacus Lastra Matt Porcelain Tile

When choosing materials for your vanity countertops and basins, it is essential to be mindful of their susceptibility to scratches, chips, and stains. For example, if you love marble countertops and basins, keep in mind that they are prone to scratches and stains. On the other hand, stainless steel is more scratch-resistant, but it can show water spots, so be sure to choose materials that will align with your cleaning preferences.

Bathroom Walls

Selecting the right paint for your bathroom walls is one of the simplest and smartest things you can do to make maintenance a breeze. Choose paint that is easy to clean, wipe down, and is resistant to mold and mildew. Semi-gloss or high-gloss paint sheens will make bathroom walls easy to clean since they can withstand moisture, which is a significant factor in bathroom cleaning. An alternative to tiling is the range of Multipanel Shower Wall Panels. 100% waterproof the panels  are available in a range of sizes and finishes.

Ventilate your bathroom

Finally, proper ventilation in your bathroom is a critical factor to consider. Without proper ventilation, moisture will accumulate on surfaces, leading to unwanted mould and mildew growth. When designing your bathroom, consider installing an efficient extractor fan that will control moisture levels. We recommend the Origins Airflow Icon 15 Extractor Fan. A bathroom that is well ventilated will be easier to clean.

Final Thoughts

Building a bathroom that is easy to clean is dependent on making smart choices at the design and selection phase. From choosing the right tiling, fixtures, and paint, to ensuring adequate ventilation, creating a low-maintenance bathroom is achievable. By prioritizing functionality and sustainability alongside aesthetics, you will be able to create a bathroom that is both beautiful and easy to maintain. Indulge in your bathroom design fantasies, but remember that functionality, ease of cleaning, and low maintenance should always be the top priority.

Relax, Refresh and Rejuvenate Yourself in Your Bathroom

UK Bathrooms invited Hazel Barry, MD of leading vegan skincare and toiletry brand H2k Botanicals, to offer advice and wellbeing tips on how to relax in your bathroom.

There’s nothing like coming home and taking a relaxing bubble bath after a long day at work. For many people, the bathroom is a sanctuary – a place where they can unwind and de-stress. But did you know that the scent of your bath products plays a crucial role in your relaxation process? In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the importance of choosing the right bath scents and how they can help you relax and unwind.

100% Natural Ingredients

Lavender and Sandalwood

Originating from some of the greatest hills in North Yorkshire, lies the home-grown wonderful scent of lavender. Known as a natural remedy for promoting sleep, H2k Botanicals’ lavender and sandalwood toiletries collection is a great option. But what exactly are the benefits of these ingredients? Lavender has been proven to have a calming effect on the nervous system, making it the perfect scent to use before bedtime. Sandalwood, on the other hand, has rich antioxidants and elasticity properties that help maintain skin cell structure. H2k Botanicals Lavender Bubble Bath with Sandalwood is made with 100% natural ingredients. It helps reduce dryness and replenish moisture in the skin.

But lavender and sandalwood are not the only scents that can help you relax and unwind. Other popular scents include chamomile known for its calming and soothing properties.  Also consider Jasmine, which has been shown to reduce anxiety levels. Peppermint is also a great option if you are looking for a refreshing and invigorating bath, as it has a cooling effect on the skin.

100% Natural Ingredients – Free from Parabens

When choosing your bath and skincare products, it’s important to read the labels carefully and look for natural ingredients. Many commercial bath products contain synthetic fragrances and harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin and cause allergic reactions. H2k Botanicals’ bath and shower gel is free from harsh chemicals, parabens, and sulphates, making it the perfect option for people with sensitive skin.

Illuminating Your Way to a Beautiful Bathroom

Forum Pegasi Range

Your bathroom is more than just a functional space for daily routines, it’s a sanctuary where you rejuvenate and unwind. The right lighting can make all the difference, setting the tone and atmosphere for your daily rituals. A well-designed lighting scheme can highlight your bathroom décor, creating a stunning backdrop for your daily routines. So how do you get it right? Here’s everything you need to know about bathroom lighting.

Forum Bresna Range

Why is good bathroom lighting so important?

Good lighting is essential for creating a practical and comfortable space. A combination of task lighting and ambient lighting provides the perfect balance for any bathroom. Task lighting helps illuminate specific areas in your bathroom, such as the vanity or the shower, while ambient lighting creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. Proper lighting can also enhance the overall appearance of your bathroom, highlighting architectural details, textures, and finishes.

Forum Scorpious Bathroom Lighting

What are the different types of lighting in a bathroom?

Task lighting, ambient lighting, and accent lighting are the three main types of lighting found in a bathroom. Task lighting is necessary for shaving, applying makeup, and other grooming activities. Ambient lighting provides overall illumination and creates a relaxing atmosphere. Accent lighting is used to highlight specific areas such as a painting, a decorative tile feature, or a plant.

Keuco Edition 400 Light Mirror

What are the different styles of lighting?

The style of lights you choose for your bathroom will depend largely on your décor style. For traditional or classic designs, chandeliers, wall sconces, and pendants with intricate detailing create an elegant and timeless look. Modern or contemporary designs favour simple and sleek lighting fixtures, such as recessed lights, linear chandeliers, or strip lighting. Mid-century style lighting features retro-inspired designs with bold lines and shapes. Rustic or farmhouse-style bathrooms often use pendant lighting, wrought iron chandeliers, or lantern-style fixtures.

When choosing lighting for your bathroom, pay attention to the size, number, and placement of the fixtures. Consider the color temperature of the bulbs; warm white or natural white works best for a relaxing atmosphere. Don’t forget to use dimmable lighting to set the mood and adjust to your preference.

A well-designed lighting scheme can transform your bathroom into a luxurious retreat. Whether you prefer traditional or modern styles, blending ambient, task, and accent lighting can create a functional and relaxing space that meets your needs. When designing your bathroom lighting, remember to choose quality fixtures that are safe for bathroom use, create balance and harmony, and enhance the overall ambiance of your space. With these tips, you’ll be able to create a beautiful and functional space that you’ll love for years to come.

How to choose a tap for your bathroom

A tap is an essential item not just for functionality but also for style. The right tap can add a fantastic touch to your bathroom and make it look perfect. However, with so many options available in the market, choosing the right one can be a daunting task. Whether you are moving to a new house or renovating your bathroom, you need to consider different factors. In this blog post, we will guide you with tips to make the right choice.

Consider the Style of Your Bathroom

One of the important factors while choosing the right tap is the style of your bathroom. Start by identifying whether your bathroom is modern, traditional or vintage. Ensure that you opt for the tap that matches your bathroom style. If your bathroom has a traditional or vintage look, you might want to opt for a classic style tap. A modern style tap can provide a sleek and minimalist look, while a more traditional style can add a touch of elegance and sophistication. It is also essential to consider the finish of the tap as it can impact the overall style.

Look for the Right Size

The size of your tap is another crucial factor that you should consider. The size should be in proportion to the sink and the bathroom’s overall size. Opt for a tap with a shorter spout if you have a small sink. Similarly, a larger bathroom sink needs a taller spout tap. The right-sized tap will not only make your sink look aesthetically pleasing but also make it comfortable to use.

Quality Matters

When it comes to buying a tap, quality should be your top priority. Invest in a high-quality product that will last longer, function efficiently and prove to be cost-effective in the long run. Look for taps that are built with sturdy and durable materials like brass, stainless steel or bronze.

Consider the Water Flow

Another important consideration while choosing the right tap for your bathroom is water flow. Choose a tap that provides maximum water flow with minimum noise production. You can look for taps with aerators, which blend air and water to produce a soft water flow. The aerator also helps conserve water, which is an added advantage.

Check for Add-on Features

When it comes to the sink, convenience and comfort matter. Therefore, it is essential to look for add-on features while choosing a tap. For instance, eco water saving features can provide both functionality and save money. Moreover, you can also opt for touchless taps that provide hands-free usage, which promotes hygiene.

Final Thoughts

Choosing the right tap for your bathroom can be a daunting task, but with these tips and considerations in mind, you can make the correct choice. Remember to consider the style of your bathroom, size, quality, water flow, and additional features while choosing your tap. Take your time and choose the tap that suits your preferences and adds aesthetic value to your bathroom.

Benefits Of A Walk-In Shower

Why Install A Walk-In Shower

No matter what type of bathroom remodel you are considering, a walk-in shower is a great way to upgrade and add value to your home. Walk-in showers are both functional and luxurious. Allowing users to relax and enjoy their spa-like experience with ease of access.

Not only do they offer convenience and safety compared to traditional tubs or shower enclosures. But they also provide an elevated aesthetic that looks beautiful in any bathroom design scheme. In this blog we’ll have a look at the advantages that come along with installing a walk-in shower, from health benefits to financial rewards.

A Walk-In Shower Is Easier To Clean and Maintain

The walk-in shower is increasingly popular! Instead of dealing with a traditional shower enclosure, walk-in showers make it easier than ever before to keep your bathroom looking sparkly and clean. Not only are these walk-in showers modern and stylish. They also have specially formulated surfaces that prevent mold and mildew growth as well as soap scum build-up.

A More Accessible Choice

When it comes to designing an accessible and luxurious bathroom, walk-in showers are a great solution. Unlike the traditional bath/shower combination popular in homes, walk-in showers offer greater shower mobility that can be especially helpful for elderly or disabled individuals.

You can easily add extra safety features, such as heavy-duty grab bars. Walk-in showers also let you customize your bathroom style to your heart’s content while still retaining the accessibility you need.

Ideal For Making The Most Of Small Bathrooms

If a small bathroom is what you’re dealing with, walk-in showers are the ideal way to get your much-needed luxury bathroom fix.  Walk-in showers provide a more open and airy feel as opposed to shower cubicles. They also give a sense of space within the confines of a smaller bathroom.

Since walk-in showers are constructed from materials such as glass enclosures and walls finished with waterproof shower panels or tiles, it is possible to transform any small bathroom into one that looks and feels bigger than its true dimensions.

Increase The Value Of Your Home

Homeowners will find a walk-in shower increases the space and comfort of their bathroom.  It’s also an easy way to create a luxury home aesthetic that potential buyers are more likely to appreciate.

Unlike a small bathtub or shower, walk-in showers are spacious without taking over the entire room. This gives you ample room to relax, as well as the ability to add features like body jets and rainfall shower heads that can make your walk-in shower feel like your own private oasis. Furthermore, with so many types of walk-in showers available today, you’re sure to find one that matches both your personal sense of style and budget. Taking all this into consideration and if you’re planning a move in the future, it’s worth considering how much value a walk-in shower will add.

  • They offer a much better shower experience for those with mobility challenges. 
  • A walk-in shower is a perfect solution for a smaller bathroom.

Our commitment to sustainability

As a business, UK Bathrooms works to limit our environmental impact, continually striving for improvement to exceed our environmental targets and aiming to reduce our carbon footprint.

It’s not an easy commitment for any business, finding ways to lower our footprint that are scalable to our operation can be somewhat difficult at times.  What we have found is that there are some strong initiatives out there which are adaptable to businesses of every size, these are a great starting point.

Energy-efficient choices

We’ve opted for lighting, equipment and appliances that save energy from swapping all light bulbs to LED to installing boiling water taps in the kitchen areas. The latter not only requires less energy than a conventional kettle but also saves money. We’ve also adopted a ‘switch off when not required’ approach, this applies to lights, heating, equipment and appliances throughout the business.

Minimised paper usage

The amount of paper used can be drastically reduced in any organisation, the ultimate goal being 100% paper-free. At UK Bathrooms one of the first actions was to digitalise the employee handbook which is now shared online.

Disposal of waste

Minimising waste by reusing items wherever possible is another action that is relatively easy for any business to adopt, along with being mindful of how your business disposes of waste.

At UK Bathrooms all waste is segregated into recyclables and non-recyclables.  All cardboard boxes, or cartons that arrive into the business from suppliers are reused for order fulfilment whenever possible.

We also re-use wherever possible. We have a bath that has been made into a sofa in our reception area and more recently we gave a damaged bath to a team members dad. As an avid gardener he turned it into a delightful planter.

Responsible Sourcing

We work with brands that share our commitment to social and environmental responsibility.  Business partners bring quality products that have been manufactured and sourced through ethical means.

Sustainable Packaging

Packaging for any retailer can be a nightmare, expensive and damaging to the environment.  Here at UK Bathrooms we seek to package all orders delivered in an efficient and sustainable manner by using recycled content, as well as biodegradable and lighter materials, in an effort to minimise waste. According to Coleman Parkes Research, 88% of consumers want packaging to provide more information about sustainability and 92% of consumers would choose paper-based over plastic-based packaging.

Packaging materials and our packaging systems are under constant review as we strive to limit our environmental impact. We use 100% recycled cardboard boxes and cardboard edging. Our pallet deliveries  are wrapped in a fully recyclable sugar cane wrap. Our packaging tapes are also 100% recyclable as is the bubble wrap that we use.

Customers will soon see a new label with every delivery, making it easier for them to determine how to best recycle the packaging. Enabling our customers to make more informed decisions around how to best dispose of the packaging their purchases come in.

We know this is a journey.  It is a journey that we are committed to. Good for us and for our planet.
