This is especially true in a small bathroom, but in general, clutter is a nuisance to have in your bathroom, and some design mistakes will make it worse. The average bathroom has a lot of different items in it that can easily cause clutter if your bathroom design doesn’t account for this. This is why having a balance of open and closed storage is so important when remodeling your outdated bathroom.
While it can be quite a clean and modern design aesthetic, the open shelving design is a bathroom remodeling trend to avoid if you want to reduce clutter. This is for the simple reason that having all of your bathroom items out in the open invites excessive noise that will make your smaller bathroom feel quite cluttered. The lack of storage space also means that stuff will make its way onto your sink, window sill, and any other flat surface.
If you’re a fan of the open shelving aesthetic, we don’t blame you; however, we do recommend implementing the open shelving bathroom design for your guest bathroom, and having more storage for your personal bathroom to avoid headaches in the future. For expert advice on reducing bathroom clutter, consider hiring a professional for your remodel.
No Dry and Wet Zones
One thing that all bathrooms have in common is that they are in an environment where there is constant moisture. This means a redesign of your outdated bathroom needs to account for this by integrating segregated zones into your bathroom design. Doing so will help prevent mold growth, as well as reduce the risk of slipping.
Excessive moisture can also cause parts of your bathroom to get damaged, especially where you have constantly wet drywall. To prevent this, always segregate wet areas, such as showers, with raised dry sections, curtains, glass panels, and water-resistant cladding where the shower will go.
