    How can I reduce condensation/water damage in a bathroom?

    Bathroom Specialists

    Aside from opening the window or having a bathroom fan, how can I design a bathroom in such a way that it will help minimize dampness and condensation/water damage? I am concerned as my bathroom isn’t really that big, however, I’m planning a total redesign of the layout soon :)

    "Ventilation is the key, so a permanent flow of free air is key. Trickle vents in the window/ an air brick are examples of this. Also get a moisture sending extractor fan as it will not only work with a timer when the light is on it will turn on automatically if it senses the build up of moisture.

    I hope this helps."

    "Hi, The easy way is not to open the window just let the fan remove the condensation after a shower. By opening a window the stream forms into condensation which in turn gives you the water damage. All the best, Mike"

    "If possible try to get an in-line fane. The extraction rate is much higher but will require to be fitted in loft space or a cupboard. By having this you can locate the vent directly above the shower area. You can also operate this via a humidistat. Other things to consider are using bathroom paint, apply silicone in all areas required, trickle vent on window and adequate heating."
