Design Features to Consider for an Easy-to-Clean Kitchen

Cleaning the kitchen can be time-consuming and tedious. Luckily for homeowners everywhere, there are ways to make kitchen cleanup easier and more manageable! Today’s article from kitchen remodeling company DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Orland Park explores a few design elements to consider when planning an easy-to-clean kitchen.

Hardworking Floors

Kitchen floors see lots of action on a daily basis. Make sure you can clean them in a jiffy by choosing flooring materials such as wood or high-end laminates which are sturdy and stain-resistant. Interior remodeling experts also swear by ceramic tile for maximum visual appeal and durability.

Low-Maintenance Countertops

Kitchen countertops are the kitchen feature that’s most prone to get dirty. Choosing a low-maintenance countertop material such as quartz — which is an engineered material that is non-porous and stain-resistant — can help cut cleaning time in half.

Concealed Trash Bin

Make cleanup easier and more discreet with a trash bin that you can conceal in one of your kitchen cabinets. This way, any unpleasant odors can be contained and you won’t have to see the garbage out in the open.

A Well-Planned Work Triangle

Arranging your stove, sink and refrigerator in such a way that makes cooking easier also leads to an easier cleanup. If these three kitchen features are too far apart from each other, you can add a kitchen island in the middle to bridge the gap and reduce chances of spills.
