How to Protect Your Kitchen Surfaces?
The kitchen is at the heart of most homes. Not only does it provide you with food, family time and a social area, it can be a great escape from the rest of the house. You are in there every day cooking meals, chatting about your day or sipping glasses of wine with friends to pass the time. This means that the kitchen is in constant use.
Its surfaces are being used all day every day; the kids are baking on the worktops, you are preparing your meals and the cupboards are being filled full of fabulous ingredients ready to be cooked with. So how do you protect theses surfaces? How do you keep them lasting as long as possible?
Invest In a High Quality Kitchen
The simplest way to maintain your kitchen surfaces for many years is to make sure that you invest in a good quality kitchen. This might cost you a little extra but it can guarantee you years of fun in a fantastically stylish kitchen.
For an elegant and stylish finish, consider the Sheraton range. Not only do they offer a variety of colours from Ivory to a dark coal colour known as Anthracite, they can also provide fantastic kitchen worktops, units and appliances. Their products are reliable, long lasting and easy to maintain which is exactly what you need if you have a kitchen that is in constant use.
Investing in good a good quality kitchen means you will know the worktops are durable, long lasting and waterproof, while the kitchen cabinets will be high end and the overall appearance of the kitchen will be stylish for a long time.
Once your high quality kitchen is fitted, the surfaces are in full use and you want to keep them looking new for as long as possible, it is time to consider your routine cleaning. Every kitchen should be cleaned on a regular basis to minimise germs, manage mess and make it easier for you to cook or bake.
Routine cleaning means you stay on top of kitchen maintenance and ensure you notice any scrapes or scuffs, in order to maintain your kitchen and keep it looking the way it did when you purchased it.
For your worktops, make sure not to use bleach unless it is absolutely necessary. There is nothing worse than spending money on a brand new kitchen and then bleaching the worktop on the first day. You can instead simply opt for a good surface cleaner that can reduce the amount of bacteria, remove any tough stains and keep everything sparkling.
To protect your kitchen surfaces, one thing you should consider is the position of your appliances. Kettles, toasters and other electronic items create masses of heat when they work. Make sure that when you are placing them on the worktop, they are away from the corners of your counter. This means that any heat or moisture they produce does not seep into the worktop and cause moisture bubbles.
You should also consider that kettles produce steam; this can rise and swell the kitchen cabinets that are placed above the kettle. This can cause a rippling effect in the cabinets if they are of poor quality. Kettles are best kept somewhere that the steam can rise without causing any damage.
Now you are frantically thinking about where your kettle is situated at home and picturing all the scrapes or stains on your worktops, contact Ramsbottom Kitchen Company who can rejuvenate your kitchen.
