Feel like you’re spending hours a day cleaning your kitchen? The kitchen is usually the one room in the house that requires the most cleaning, and it is important that you do to avoid bacteria building up.
However, if you are thinking about re-modelling your kitchen, there are some ways you can design your kitchen so that it is easier to clean. Read on to learn more about how to design an easy-to-clean kitchen.
Choose an easy-to-maintain worktop
Some worktops, such as wooden or granite, require careful maintenance and cleaning to make sure they look their best. If you don’t want to spend ages wiping down surfaces, consider installing a low-maintenance worktop, such as laminate.
Choose the right sink
According to the NHS, your sink contains around 100,000 more germs than your bathroom! So, it’s important that you keep it clean. The best way to do this is to install a sink that is made up of an easy-to-clean material. Stainless steel is not only one of the most popular sink choices, but it is also incredibly quick to clean.
Choose a splashback
Are you fed up with spending ages cleaning the back of your kitchen wall? Grease, food and liquids can easily splash out of the pan and make the back of your wall unclean. The best way to combat this is to install kitchen splashback panels. Consider installing perspex kitchen splashbacks. Not only do these come in a wide variety of different colours, but will also ensure that your kitchen is incredibly clean.
Don’t forget about the flooring!
When designing a kitchen, people sometimes overlook the importance of the flooring. However, kitchen floors require regular cleaning and mopping, so make sure you install low-maintenance flooring. Linoleum and sheet vinyl flooring are the top two types of flooring for a clean kitchen as spills can be easily cleaned off the surface and they are incredibly stain resistant.
