Building owners can decide right from the design phase whether a bathroom is going to be easy to clean. It is important for the bathroom to have a chic design, but for the user, cleanliness is even more important.
Simple room planning
Where possible, corners and angles should be kept to a minimum in bathrooms. This means the bathroom can be cleaned quickly and efficiently. Prewall installations are ideal because they hide the usual suspects that accumulate dust – such as cisterns, pipes and cables – behind the wall.
Steering clear of joints
The larger the tiles, the easier they are to clean. And the fewer joints there are, the fewer places there are for dirt, and germs to be deposited.
A rimless paradise
Limescale deposits roughen the surface of the WC ceramic appliance, making it extremely difficult to clean. What’s more, the deposits look unhygienic and dirt sticks to them. That is why it is easier to clean the sanitary ceramic when the surfaces are simpler and more continuous. Modern toilets are designed to be rimless and washbasins are also available with no overflow hole for easy cleaning.
Elegantly mounted on the wall
If bathroom furniture and toilets are mounted on the prewall, free space emerges beneath them which is easy to clean. The ideal distance between the floor and the design stripe of the toilet or furniture is around 15cm, as this provides the perfect amount of space to mop underneath them.
