Separating your bathroom into dry and wet zones is a good way to maintain its aesthetic, make it easier to clean and reduce humidity levels. Here are a few surefire ways you can do this.
Keep the Wet Zone Away from Doors
Place the wet zone away from doors to reduce the amount of water that drips throughout your home. Make sure to install towel rails near the shower area, so you can easily reach for your towel at the end of a shower. This will also allow you to dry yourself before walking toward the dry zone.
Use Watertight Frameless Enclosures
Frameless showers have an excellent aesthetic appeal because of their seamless, modern design. You can use this type of enclosure to establish the boundary between the dry and wet zones in your bathroom. Don’t worry because it will not reduce the natural light entering your bathroom. KOHLER® LuxStone shower enclosures are watertight, transparent and durable — they’re a smart choice for any bathroom.
Ensure the Shower Floor Slopes Toward the Drain
Your shower floor must slightly slope toward the drain so that water can flow easily, preventing water from accumulating on your bathroom floor and ensuring the surface will dry properly. Your bathroom remodeler can make accurate measurements to effectively direct water toward the floor drain.
Maintain Excellent Ventilation
Ventilation reduces the humidity in your bathroom. One of the simplest ways to ventilate the room is to open a window. You can also add exhaust fans to enhance your bathroom ventilation. These methods allow you to reduce humidity and keep your bathroom from being exposed to moisture for extended periods of time.
