How to Create a Low-Maintenance Kitchen

low-maintenance kitchen

Quartz countertops, vinyl flooring, and stainless steel fixtures look stylish and are easy to clean.

How much time do you spend in your kitchen? If you make meals daily, then it’s likely you also spend a lot of time cleaning. And having a big family with small children means that there are more messes to clean up and it’s more important to keep surfaces germ-free. Luckily, there are ways you can redesign your kitchen to make cleaning easier. Spend less time cleaning up and more time with your family! Here are a few tips for creating a low-maintenance kitchen.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are a lifesaver for busy families. Quartz countertops are man made out of crushed quartz stone and synthetic materials. This makes quartz countertops stronger than marble and granite, and, unlike marble and granite, quartz countertops do not absorb odors or stains. Plus, since quartz countertops are man made, you can get them in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel has been dubbed as a timeless kitchen classic. It’s easy to see why stainless steel is so popular and will continue to maintain its popularity through the years. The neutral and modern look of stainless steel complements any kitchen style. And the best part? Stainless steel doesn’t absorb odor, stain, or show fingerprints. Plus, stainless steel kills germs, so it’s an especially great material to have in the kitchen for families with children.

Vinyl Flooring

When it comes to low-maintenance flooring, vinyl is likely to be the best option. Vinyl is a man made material that is a relative newcomer to flooring. The resilient surface is easy to clean and resistant to water, mildew, and stains. Plus, vinyl also comes in a wide variety of colors and styles. Today’s vinyl can even be made to present the appearance of other materials, like wood, stone, or ceramic tiles.
