Functional Design: Creating an Easy-to-Clean Kitchen

The kitchen tends to be the room in our home that needs the most cleaning. The good news is that, with a little planning, you can have a design that makes cleaning a breeze and allows you to spend less time mopping and more time enjoying your space. Check out these expert tips.

Easy-Clean Appliances

You might be excited about a vintage-looking stove or a smart fridge when you see them online. From an aesthetic and feature standpoint, why wouldn’t you be? But it’s important to also consider how you’ll be keeping them clean. Skip fancy appliances requiring special cleaning solutions, or with difficult details like knobs that are too close together. They may look nice at the store, but will just cost extra time and money later. There’s something lovely about the classic look of a gas stove’s coils. But consider choosing a flat induction cooktop, since it’s easy and safe to clean.

If you have the money for something a little fancier, choose appliances with cleaning programs included. Ovens with pyrolytic cleaning functions (which heat the oven to high temperatures to burn off residue), steam ovens with automatic steam cleaning and drying programs, and coffee machines with automatic cleaning will save you time by doing a lot of the cleaning work for you.
