Caring for Bathroom Tile

By | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Maintenance, Full Bathroom Remodel | No Comments

Bathroom tile can be a beautiful compliment to any beautifully decorated bathroom. Properly caring for your bathroom tile can be a bit of challenge, but if you do it properly, it can help your tile last for years to come. Because of its’ frequent use, the bathroom requires a lot of maintenance. Follow these time-saving tips to keep your bathroom looking clean:

Stay Away from Harsh Cleaners

More abrasive cleaners may get the job done, but they can also cause your tile grout to wear and down and eventually begin to crack. Even small cracks can be a perfect spot for mold and mildew to develop. Instead, use mild soap and water for light cleanings, and gentle or specialized cleaners for more stubborn stains.

Periodically Apply SealerCaring for Bathroom Tile-shutterstock_46477360-1024x693

Sealing your tiles on a regular basis minimizes wear and tear. This is especially true with tiles frequently exposed to water, such as ones on shower walls, bathroom countertops, or flooring with tiles near the bathtub/shower area. Be sure to choose a sealer made for your tiles specific location and material.

Keep a Squeegee Handy

If there’s one tool you’ll want to keep on deck at all times in your bathroom, it’s a squeegee. First, use a towel to wipe up any visible moisture, such as spilled water on tiles near the sink or on shower walls. Then use the squeegee to easily brush away any excess moisture to reduce your odds of growing mold or mildew.

Be Mindful of Signs of Mold

Doing regular visual inspections to check for signs of these common bathroom growths can reduce your odds of having a big problem on your hands. If you spot a few spores or signs of mold-related growth, a store-bought grout cleaner can usually do the trick. But if the problem is more widespread, hire a professional cleaning service. Either way, deal with the issue as quickly as possible.

Clean Grout Lines

The cement-based mixture that fills the spaces between bathroom tiles is where stains usually show up first. Keep your tile grout clean and free of potentially harmful contaminants by using either mild bleach or a grout cleaning product. If there are existing stains, let the cleaner sit for about 10-15 minutes before cleaning it with a scrub brush or toothbrush. Avoid scrubbing tiles directly so you don’t accidentally scratch the material.  

Know When It’s Time for Replacement

Cleaning tiles on a regular basis can prevent serious issues with your tile flooring and can help it last for quite a while. However, there are circumstances in which it is necessary to replace flooring. If your flooring has an excessive buildup of mold or mildew, or if it is beginning to crack, talk to a professional about replacement options.

Caring for your tile floors can be simple and can keep them looking beautiful and functional for years to come. If you have questions about flooring or you are looking to redecorate, contact the experts at Luxury Bath today!

Choosing the Right Bathroom Flooring

By | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Maintenance, Bathroom Remodeling Materials, Bathroom Remodeling Tips | No Comments

A large part of any bathroom remodel is the flooring. New flooring can be the cherry on top of a perfect decorating scheme. With selecting new bathroom flooring, however, comes some big decisions. It is important to choose the right flooring material for you and your space.

Tile

Tile is the most durable and customizable material that you can use in your bathroom. One of the biggest advantages of tile is that it offers a wide range of colors and textures. Tile is also a front-runner in regards to longevity and overall investment value. It is easy to clean, durable, and can even be heated to offset cold temperatures in the winter.

It is important to note that tile needs upkeep and maintenance to keep its appearance. Without proper cleaning, both tile and grout can grow discolored.

VinylChoosing the Right Bathroom Flooring-shutterstock_710379154-1024x682

The vinyl materials available today look and perform much better than the brittle sheets or loosening sticky tiles that past vinyl options offered. A sheet vinyl is a cheap alternative that can maintain the appearance of wood or tile. Vinyl also has minimal seaming, which makes it a good choice for bathroom areas. It is more durable than wood and other flooring alternatives. Overall, vinyl is a cost-effective and accident proof flooring alternative.

Wood

While wood or high-quality laminates look warm and inviting in an otherwise cold room, there are a few things to be wary of. Wood does not react well with water, making it a risky choice for a bathroom setting. Although organic wood offers a unique and beautiful look, it can be more trouble than it is worth. Should you choose wood flooring, be ready for regular and prompt maintenance.

Accessories

With any of these options, you can add softness, color, and water absorption to the room by including strategically placed small rugs. For a spa-like feel, you can incorporate teak or river-rock mats to complement your vision. A rug also offers the peace of mind of a slip resistant surface while toweling off.

The right flooring varies from person to person and bathroom to bathroom. Budget, functionality, and look are all things to consider when it comes to remodeling. As always, if you have any questions or bathroom needs, come visit us at Luxury Bath. Our experts will help you explore and select the perfect flooring options for you!

The Top 5 Traits Of Every Gorgeous Bathroom

By | Full Bathroom Remodel, Making the Decision to Remodel Your Bathroom, One Day Bathroom Remodel, Tips for the Home | No Comments

Whether you are designing a new bathroom or remodeling an existing one, there are a few essential traits you should aim to incorporate. Keep these five things in mind when creating your perfect bathroom:

Superior Lighting

The importance of lighting is something that a lot of people mistakenly overlook when remodeling their bathrooms. Lighting can be natural or artificial and can give the room a whole different feel. Bright, clear lighting is also essential for things like makeup application and hair grooming. Evaluate your space’s lighting needs and choose lighting options accordingly.

A Color SchemeThe Top 5 Traits Of Every Gorgeous Bathroom-24934883_l-1024x677

Picking a color scheme before starting the design process will help narrow down your design options, which can often make decision making much easier. There are a multitude of things you must decide when designing a restroom, including what kind of bathtub/shower, sink, tile, and mirror to choose. Having an overarching color scheme prior to picking our decorations can make picking these items easier and can lead to an overall more cohesively designed space.

Function is Important

While it can be easy to design a bathroom based on trends and fads, the truth is that your focus should lie in functionality. You want to choose sturdy, durable bathroom items that will last.

For example, you may want a trendy bucket-style tub, but also want the functionality that comes with a shower. In some cases, you can have the best of both worlds by installing a bucket-style-bathtub with a shower head on the wall and a glass enclosure to make sure all the water stays contained.

Working with a design team is a great way to merge trendy and functional and will help you think outside the box to get the look you want while also meeting your needs.

Creative Storage

Utilizing different places in your bathroom for hidden storage is another great idea for your bathroom. Take advantage of places that wouldn’t normally be used; under the sink, the back of bathroom doors, etc. By adding a basket or container to these small spaces, you will increase your storage capacity and make your bathroom overall more functional. The key is to get creative!

Every Detail Matters

It may seem like small details do not matter when designing a beautiful restroom, however, the small details are often what bring a whole look together. Our team is invested in your design, all the way down to the hand towels that will be on display. Having a team that is so invested in the process is key to having a fun, exciting, and rewarding experience.
