The bathroom is not a room that you spend a lot of time in but it nonetheless should be a comforting room that feels cozy and inviting. Mirrors, decorated shower curtains, fancy sink hardware, walk-in showers and wall décor all add to the charm of your bathroom, but some items do not work so well for this. Here we will look at 3 items never to use in your bathroom.
Wallpaper: Wallpaper peels quickly because of the steam that is frequently experienced in the bathroom. It should not be used in the bathroom unless you have more than one in your home and wish to add it to a second bathroom that is rarely used. Vinyl wall coverings are an alternative that will provide years of lasting enjoyment.
Carpet: It feels so good underneath our feet, but leave carpet to the family room and the bedrooms, and not the bathroom. Not only does it look really tacky, mold and mildew can occur, not to mention a horrible smell because of the carpeting getting wet so much. Even the CDC recommends using flooring other than carpeting in your bathroom.
Laminate: laminate flooring is awesome because it looks great and is affordable, but it is not right for the bathroom. The water that seeps between the planks of this flooring causes a great amount of damage that can be very costly to repair. You can use many other different types of flooring in the bathroom that is also affordable, so consider those instead.
There are many different products on the market that you can add to the bathroom when you want a fresh and updated look in your home. Opt for those instead, a save yourself a ton of trouble and headache. The three items listed above should never be used inside of your bathroom. Avoid them at all costs!
