How to Design a Kitchen That’s Easy to Clean
The kitchen tends to be the room in our home that needs the most cleaning. The good news is that, with a little forward planning, you can have a scheme that makes cleaning a breeze and allows you to spend less time mopping and more time enjoying your space. Check out these expert tips to create your easy to clean kitchen.
Chose Easy Clean Appliances
There are lots of smart, hi-tech kitchen appliances that clean themselves! What better way to plan for an easy clean kitchen than an appliance that cleans itself. Our AEG ovens have pyrolytic cleaning functions, which super-heat the oven to burn off residue. Some coffee machines even have self cleaning functions.
Pick a splashback
Tiles are a popular choice for a kitchen splashback, but if you don’t want to spend time scrubbing grout to keep it sparkling clean, there are a couple of options. If you’re set on tiles, then choosing large-format ones will minimise the amount of grout you have to clean. Alternatively, choose a glass splashback, so you don’t have to deal with grout at all. They look fantastic and are super easy to clean!
Be smart with your worktop choice
Many of our Cosentino worktops have additional benefits such as being highly scratch resistant and stain resistant. Our Dekton worktops are even heat resistant! This makes them easy to clean and maintain, prolonging their brand new appearance.
Consider the inside of cupboards
Cupboard drawers can be a bit of a minefield to keep tidy considering we are in and out them every single day. Luckily Schüller offer a variety of clever cupboard storage solutions including wooden plate holders, cutlery inserts and built in pantry boxes. Special elements in terms of interior equipment make the kitchen perfect.
Avoid open shelving
Open shelves might look attractive when beautifully styled, but they can be a high-maintenance cleaning option if you have to move stacks of glassware and ornaments just to run a duster over the surface. For a fuss-free kitchen design, avoid open shelves and go for closed wall cabinets instead to keep your kitchen always looking neat & tidy.
