How to Make Your Fitted Kitchen Last for Years

Let’s admit it. You can compare your kitchen to a highway. It’s never empty and there are always a lot of people going in and out. And just like other things in our home that is exposed to daily wear-and-tear, they need to be taken care of on a daily basis. Taking care of your kitchen every day is crucial to maintaining and prolonging the life of your kitchen.



Fitted kitchens are investments that costs homeowners like you a significant amount of money. Not taking care of it would be like wasting your hard-earned money for the kitchen. To help you make your fitted kitchens last for years, we have here a few tips you can try. If you do this every day, you might even be able to increase the value of your home and have a great return on your investment.


1. Make sure everything is cleaned after use. This is a simple advice that is pretty common sense however; many homeowners never immediately clean the utensils or tools they use in the kitchen. Always clean your tools and utensils that you use on a daily basis and always clean the cleaners you use. Apart from cleaning all the kitchen countertops and cookware, clean the dishwashers and other kitchen appliances that are used daily.


2. Handle all moving parts with care. Even if your kitchen designer says that your fitted kitchen will last for years, the life of your kitchen still depends on how you handle it. As much as possible, ask your family to handle all movable parts of your kitchen with care. This is especially true for your cabinets and pantry doors. You don’t want to be replacing them every now and then.


3. Use proper cleaning materials. Cleaning with proper materials such as a soft cloth and mild detergents will condition and clean your fitted kitchen furniture. Doing so will help maintain the integrity of your kitchen. For wooden countertops, use a suitable cleaner that will not leave any harmful chemicals on the surface. Use cleaning materials which are eco-friendly.


4. Schedule regular maintenance. Call your trusted plumber and electrician to conduct regular electrical and plumbing maintenance to ensure the performance of your fitted kitchen. Electrical wires need to be changed every five years while plumbing should be done at least twice a year to see if everything is functional well. This will also ensure that you encounter no problems throughout the year.


Having your fitted kitchen regularly cleaned, handled with care, and maintained by professionals is a sure-fire way to make it last for years. When the time comes to sell your home, you don’t have to worry about its performance because you know you took care of it in the past.
