Home tips: Checklists for a clean and tidy bathroom

Your bathroom design and reno works play a big role in having a great bath space, but it doesn’t just stop there. More important is the upkeep you do after to keep it looking its best. We all don’t like doing the dirty work, but it has to be done. The trick is to break the tasks down into daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly checklists, so that they’re less of a chore.
