Getting the minimalistic look in your bathroom is one way to add some class and dram to your bathroom, many people do this by installing a wetroom.

Cleaning the bathroom is one of them job that allot of us hate. Ideally you have a daily cleaning routine or at the very least weekly bathroom cleaning routine that keeps the bathrooms tidy. How ever it is good practice to give you bathroom a good thorough clean at least once a year. This could be called a bathroom Spring Clean.

Below is a check list and the items you will need to perform a bathroom deep clean.

Bathroom Spring Cleaning Checklist

_____Get rid of what doesn’t belong in the bathroom: Put dirty clothes and towels in the hamper/wash basket. Gather anything on the vanity, tub surround and other surfaces that belongs in another room and put it in the clutter box. Throw trash into the bag.

_____Empty the room: Remove everything from the vanity, tub surround, shelves, back of the toilet tank, etc. Take any rugs to the laundry room and start them in the washing machine.

_____Empty the cupboards and drawers one at a time. Put trash into the bag and any items that belong elsewhere into the clutter box. After you’ve emptied each section, wipe it clean with a cloth dipped in hot, soapy water before returning the contents neatly.

_____Clean the fans and vents: Get on the step stool and carefully remove the fan vent covers. Wash them in hot, soapy water and dry them with a clean, lint-free cloth. Before returning the cover, wipe down the fan blades.

_____Get dusting: Using a long-handled cleaning tool (this is my favorite one), dust — in order — the ceiling, the top of window frames, the corners, the walls, the window casings and sills, any shelves and then the baseboards.

_____Pre-clean other surfaces: Use a dry cloth to wipe away dust, grime and hair from the vanity, faucets, tub surround, tub/shower floor, toilet tank and toilet pedestal.

_____Remove the shower curtain and clean it.

_____Tackle the soap scum in the shower and tub by spraying them thoroughly with agood soap scum remover. Let sit while you continue working.

_____Spray the vanity and sinks with disinfecting cleaner. Let sit.

_____Spray the outside and seat of the toilet with disinfecting cleaner. Let sit.

_____Clean the wood fixtures using a cloth dipped in hot, soapy water. Work top to bottom to clean the crown moulding, door jambs, window sills, doors (both sides), counter and drawer fronts, and baseboards.

_____Rinse the disinfected surfaces of your vanity, sinks and toilet with a clean cloth dipped in hot water.

_____Rinse the shower/tub well. If needed, clean the grout.

_____Flush the toilet then sprinkle baking soda in the bowl. Scrub, then pour in 1/2 cup white vinegar. Flush when foaming subsides, then apply bleech to the side of the bowl and let sit.

_____Apply shower protection spray to your shower screen and enclosure to protect the metal work and make cleaning easier in the future. I recogment Roman Ultra for this job.

_____Clear the floor : move the clutter box outside of the door and taking the trash bag to the bin.

_____Sweep the floor or, if you prefer, use the floor attachment on your vacuum to really get up all of the lint and grime. If you have a tiled floor, now’s the time to clean the grout.

_____Mop the floor using 1 cup white vinegar in 1 gallon of HOT water. Let dry.

_____Clean the trash can in another room while the floor dries using these steps.

_____Reset the room by flushing the toilet, hanging fresh towels, returning the laundered floor mats to their place, hanging the clean shower curtain and returning the dry trash can to its place.

_____Polish the shiny stuff: clean the mirror, shine the faucets and towel racks, and give the toilet paper holder a good cleaning, too.

_____Put things away: make sure to return the items in the clutter box to where they belong, then put away your cleaning tools.

Yep, that’s a lot of work but that’s why Spring Cleaning only comes once a year. And just think: now you’ve earned a nice, long bubble bath and have a sparkling clean bathroom to relax in!

Decorate your bathroom Today For A Better Bathroom Tomorrow

There’s nothing more depressing than a tired and tatty bathroom. When your bathroom is bright, clean and fresh it’s a pleasure to use. If it’s a little frayed around the edges it can mean you don’t enjoy relaxing in your bath because you spend your time noticing the wear and tear.

Many people put off decorating their bathroom because they feel it’s going to be a huge expense and a lot of stress and hassle. However, it doesn’t have to be like that. If you spend a little time planning your new bathroom it can be done quickly, easily and for a reasonable price.

Firstly, consider if you really need to change that bathroom suite? Perhaps yours is unfashionable avocado or even pink or blue. If that’s the case then sometimes only a new white suite will do. Well, don’t panic because you can find lots of exceptional and well priced bathroom suites on the internet and as long as you are not moving their position within your bathroom they should be pretty quick and easy to install.

If you don’t want to change your bathroom suite then you could consider changing what’s around it by, for example, fitting anew floor, changing your shower door, changing the handles on bathroom furniture or even giving the place a lick of paint.

If you want to go for something really fresh and original but don’t want the hassle of tiling, you could consider a product like multiPANEL. These panels are finished in laminate and come in various sizes, so a wall which could take days to tile can take only a couple of hours to cover. You can buy multiPANEL in an array of styles and finishes so whether you like the look of opulent marble, a trendy sparkle effect or ultra modern aluminium you’ll be amazed at the fantastic finish that this product can give you.

Even small changes can make a big difference in your bathroom. For example changing your bathroom accessories and towels. Making sure that all your bathroom accessories, furniture and towels match can be the element that brings your whole bathroom together and makes it seem much more cohesive.

If your bathroom is bringing you down then it’s definitely time to decorate. It may take a little motivation to get the job done but when you are relaxing in your gleaming new boutique style bathroom you’ll be so glad that you took the time to do a great job.

Choose the Wet Room Kit that’s right for you:

If you are thinking of getting a wetroom fited in your home, it is good to do some research first before getting a plumber in to do the work. Many plumbers are concomitant in fitting bathrooms but not all plumbers are complainant in fitting wetrooms. Wetrooms are a specialist job and a good plumber with experience of fitting a wetroom is essential as any leaks or plumbs are very hard to fix once the whole room is tiled!


When looking at getting a wetroom, a good wetroom kit is essential! You should research different wetroom kits as it is important that you choose the kit that is right for your design and installation! Read my other posts on wetroom for more information.

There are a wide selection of wet room kits available, but most wet room kits consist of a base, drain and a form of tanking (waterproofing). Most wetroom kits are designed to be in a tiles room with a tiled floor, however kits are available if you with to use a vinyl (or Altro) flooring.

Research online, which you probably already have if you are reading this post, and check out the range of kits available. A good start is to use one of the leading brands such are Abacus or Roman Showers and check out there kits. These kits are very good and very affordable and the wetroom kits are available to buy online.

I have used both kits are each kits has its pluses and minuses. Please read my post on wetroom kits compared.

Decorating you bathroom can bring it back to life!

Decorating your bathroom can seem like a big expense and a lot of hassle. Particularly if you are ripping out your existing bathroom suite and replacing it with a new one.

But giving your bathroom a fresh new look doesn’t have to be hard. You can completely transform your bathing space quickly and effectively. What’s more, it doesn’t have to cost the earth.


Firstly, think about your bathroom accessories. You can really brighten up a tired bathroom by adding some lively bright coloured towels, bathmats and matching them in with your other accessories such as your toothbrush holders and bathroom cabinets.

If you’re feeling really brave you can even choose a signature wall and give it a coat of bright paint.

If you’ve got an old bathroom suite in those favourite colours of the 1970’s – Avacado, pink, turquoise or even brown, then instead of lamenting it, why not embrace it. Just choose your wall coverings and accessories to match. If you get it right you could end up with a really unique space that people will love.

If you really don’t want to rip out that old suite, then why not consider swapping your shower curtains for a shower door. It can transform your bathroom and give it a much smarter appearance.

If you have bare walls you could always re-tile with something a little more interesting. There are a myriad of tile options to choose from, so if you want to create something a bit more quirky you could go for fishy tiles or even a mosaic.

If tiling’s not for you then how about a mural? You can find lots of reliable mural painters on the net who will create a bespoke piece of art just for you. Just imagine bathing surrounded by a tropical seascape or roman ruins.

If you’re looking for something more sophisticated, but want to change the look of your walls, why not consider bathroom cladding or a product like Multipanel. Multipanel has plywood core wall panelling that comes laminated in over 30 different colours. It can be attached to a wall very quickly and easily buy supply glueing to existing walls or tiles with multipanel adhesive. Multipanel is completely water tight if installed correctly.

This stylish wood panelling is certainly a lot easier to install than tiles and gives a very sophisticated boutique hotel look to your bathroom. You can choose a colour that ties in perfectly with your bathroom accessories and reflects your taste. You can even match it in with your flooring.

Adding a plastic cladding ceiling will instantly brighten up you old bathroom and give a clean finish to your ceiling.

So remember, if you’re considering changing the face of your bathroom, it doesn’t have to be hell. Try one of these ideas and you’ll soon be relaxing in the bathroom of your dreams.
