How Do I Look After My Kitchen?

It’s exciting when the fitters have left, and it’s just you and your brand new kitchen.

For a short time, it feels like a fanfare of glossy surfaces and shiny kitchen appliances; a beautiful dream you might have to wake up from!

But the good news is, that spanking new kitchen is all yours AND, when maintained correctly, can stay looking and feeling brand new for years to come.

At Butlers Kitchens, we’re passionate about being with you every step of the way, and that promise doesn’t end once our kitchen installations team have left you to enjoy your new space.

We’ve put together a short guide on how to look after your new kitchen and things to consider in the kitchen design process to ensure you get the very best out of it:

Kitchen Cleaning

Your new kitchen needs to be regularly cleaned and treated with care. Be cautious of specific areas that could pose apparent threats, such as the location of your kettle and where the steam directs.

Worktop Rules

Regardless of how much or how little they are likely to cause damage, spillages should be mopped up as soon as possible. The same goes for food prep; even if it’s durable granite or quartz, make it your golden rule never to forgo the chopping board! These important areas should be part of your kitchen cleaning routine.
Some kitchen worktops are more stain-resistant than others. If you’re a fan of turmeric or red wine, ask your kitchen designer about robust options.

Attention to Detail

When it comes to kitchen cleaning and maintenance, pay extra attention to runners in your cupboards. It’s dust here that will cause them to run less smoothly. Also, opting for soft-close cabinets will reduce the damage caused by being closed too harshly, which is harder to prevent with teenagers or children around!

Certain surfaces may require extra care and attention – it’s always wise to ask about the materials used in your kitchen and spend some time getting to know the best products to clean them. For example, there will be a huge difference cleaning a gloss kitchen compared of a matt one.

Handle with Care

Smart technology is a great way to reduce regular contact in the kitchen. The ripple effect of this contactless approach will keep your kitchen fresher for longer. It’s essential to read manuals for all of the new technology in your kitchen and be sure to understand how to work it properly. For example, overfilling dishwashers or blocking microwave vents could cause them to break down.
