Even if you spill something you will not have to worry.

Paints That Can Withstand

If you have kids look for nontoxic paints that come with the ability to allow you to wipe off any crayon and pencils artwork.

Switch to Practical Cabinets

The Bathrooms Done Right

Switching to floating toilets and cabinets in the bathroom will make cleaning so much easier. Using a darker shade for the tiles grout will also make cleaning up so much easier. But make sure you do not compromise on hygiene and cleanliness. Instead of using shower curtains look for dividers that can be cleaned on both sides without any issues. Sliding doors will be hard to clean as there will always be that potion that is hard to reach. Instead look for glass swing shower doors.
