Most people dont enjoy cleaning and are always looking for ways to simplify their lives or get things done faster. If you could find a way to spend less time cleaning in the kitchen wouldnt it be worth it?
There are a host of different surfaces that are prone to collecting dirt and dust in the kitchen. So when it comes to choosing kitchen cabinets and countertop materials it helps to know what materials are easier to maintain and clean.
How to Choose Low Maintenance
- Choose a flat panel door style. The more detail and crevices the more places dirt and dust can collect.
- Choose a full overlay or inset door style. The full overlay will cover the cabinet box and dirt is less likely to get caught between the door and the cabinet. An inset cabinet is flush with the cabinet box so it wont catch those extra spills.
- Limit open cabinets and open shelving. Exposed surfaces are prone to collecting dust and will increase the amount of cleaning and dusting.
- Use glass doors as focal points. Glass doors show more fingerprints and dirt requiring more upkeep.
- Choose a quartz or granite countertop. They are stain and scratch resistant. They are durable and will stay looking new for years to come.
- Choose hardware for kitchen cabinets. Having knobs and pulls will prevent oil and dirt from rubbing off onto the cabinet and damaging the finish.
