Renovate Your Bathroom To An Easy To Clean Space

Our bathrooms are some of the most used rooms in the home, and they’re also some of the most germ-filled. Keeping a clean bathroom can be a difficult endeavor, especially when your family is in and out on a rather constant basis, but there are some ways to take this into consideration when having your bathroom remodeled. A bathroom remodel can not only help to provide a roomier and more usable bathroom space, but it can help to keep your bathroom cleaner as well, and we at Cardigan can take your need for a clean bathroom into consideration when helping you to design your new space.


First, choosing the materials to be used when you renovate your bathroom can help a great deal in the ease in cleaning, and you’ll want to stick with smooth surfaces you can wipe down easily. Countertops and flooring that you can adequately clean with a sponge, cloth, or mop are always ideal, and they can cut your time spent cleaning your bathroom significantly. A few materials that are particularly low maintenance and able to be used in a bathroom remodel are:

  • Laminate
  • Solid surface
  • Quartz
  • Recycled glass
  • Stainless steel

For bathrooms, it’s typically best to stay away from wood countertops and flooring options, as these can be porous and difficult to maintain. With wood, a simple wiping with an antibacterial spray can actually damage the surface, so you’ll want something sturdy enough to last, but also versatile enough to be able to withstand a good easy cleaning.


In terms of flooring, ceramic tile can make a big impression and leave you with an easy to clean surface, but occasional grout scrubbing will be required. If you’re looking for a great deal of longevity, this is something that is often recommended.


At Cardigan, we know how important it is to keep a clean and functional bathroom, and we take this into consideration during all steps of our remodeling process. A bathroom remodel can make a huge functional and aesthetic impact on your home, but you’ll want to make sure that remodel works best with your family and your schedule.
