Here’s How To Make Your Bathroom As Insta Ready As You Are

Gross bathrooms are not a good look! In fact, soggy carpets and mouldy grout are not what you want to be showing off on Instagram. Of course, that means you may need to take a long hard look at your bathroom before you use it as a setting for any selfies. After all, the bathroom is one of the most hardworking spaces in the home, and it has to deal with things like damp and vast temperature changes on the regular as well. Unfortunately, that can leave them looking gross, even if you are meticulous about cleaning. However, as you’ll be pleased to learn, there are ways to combat this problem and make your bathroom as Insta-ready as you are. Read on to find out more.

Go for black grout. 

OK, so using dark grout like in the examples at www.pinterest.co.uk in between your tiles may seem like cheating, but it absolutely isn’t. In fact, its very on-trend right now. 

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it also hides any less than pristine bits as well. Although, it’s not an excuse to never clean, as hygiene as well as appearance matters in the bathroom too!

 

Invest in a shower seal. 

Next, another step you can take to keep your bathroom looking Insta-ready is to invest in a shower seal. In fact, this can be one of the best things you can spend your money on. The reason being that once installed, it will stop floods of water leaking out into the room. 

Of course, this is good news for several reasons. The first being that less water in the bathroom outside of the shower means less damp and mould. While the second is that you also reduce the chance of warping your floors or cabinets too. 

Happily, from places like theshowersealshop.com there is a broad range of seals available. Something that means no matter what size and shape shower you have, or what the screen is like, you should find it easy to locate a seal that fits. 

 

Maintain the airflow. 

Another essential element of making your bathroom Insta-ready is to ensure there is always a decent airflow. In fact, this is also related to damp, which can be responsible for the growth of mould and some pretty nasty smells. Which unless you want your nose turned up in every pick is something you will want to avoid as well. 

Of course, by maintaining a constant airflow in the bathroom, you can help it to dry out much quicker, and so prevent such issues. Something that makes installing an extractor fan, as well as keeping doors and windows open when it’s not in use a smart move! 

 

Minimise fabrics and textiles. 

Finally, if you want your bathroom to be Insta-ready at all times, then minimising any fabrics and textiles is the way to go. Of course, this is an issue with damp and the problems it causes once again. 

The reason being the more textiles you have in a space, the more water will get soaked up. To that end, keep fabrics to towels only if possible, unless you want to take selfies with a mouldy backdrop for Insta that is?!
