Upkeep for your home is often one of the more frustrating, time consuming, and inconvenient tasks for your schedule. You can prevent the need (or at least the frequency) of these tasks by installing low maintenance features for your home! Here are a few examples of design elements that won’t require so much effort to keep looking beautiful.
Floors receive the most friction and impact of any surface of your home. This means that scuffs, scratches, dents and warping are not only possible, but likely for your flooring. Some of the most common flooring types include Limestone and Marble, which create a warm tone to the home and look beautiful when first installed but can quickly become damaged and unpleasant. Therefore, sealing your flooring with an effective sealant material is essential to keeping those floors beautiful for longer.
Worktops are another aspect of your home that requires frequent cleaning, not only for cleanliness and aesthetic but for sanitation so that food preparation is safe and healthy. The best material, then? Quartz! There is a vast variety of Quartz options you can choose from that will match your design needs, but what’s better, this is a material that will last decades before needing major renovation or replacement. Quartz is, of course, one of the hardest materials that exist, meaning it is highly resistant to scratches and nearly impossible to break with the minor forces of everyday kitchen or bathroom tasks. Furthermore, your Quartz Worktops are scratch resistant, and nonporous (meaning they are also water resistant and can be sanitized easily.)
Your cabinets for your kitchen, bathrooms, living room, or wherever else you use cabinetry, can be styled to be more convenient for your cleaning and maintenance. For example, cabinetry that reaches all the way to the ceiling will not (because it cannot) collect dust, meaning there is no need for routine dusting that simply spreads those particles everywhere else in your home. Cabinets without extra trims or ornate knobs and handles also make for easy cleaning—without the textured detailing, you can spend less time making sure that you’ve dusted every crevice!
