When your new kitchen or bathroom is freshly installed, everything looks perfect. But sadly, they don’t always stay that way! Here’s how to protect your bathroom and kitchen sinks from damage in the hustle and bustle of everyday life – so your interior design never gets old.
Pick a material and style that suits your needs
There is an almost infinite choice of sink materials and designs out there – from smooth white porcelain to modern aluminum, natural quartz to polished marble. When you plan your kitchen or bathroom renovation, think carefully about how you will use the space. For example, if you have a busy family home, then it’s a good idea to choose materials which will stand up to lots of use, spills and stains.
Choose the right cleaning materials
Different sinks will need different care. For example, it’s not a good idea to use harsh scourers or bleach-based cleaners on natural marble.
In general, it’s a good idea to clean your kitchen and bathroom surfaces with soft cloths and sponges. Avoid using too much water, which could seep into the material and make it warp.
Finally, there are lots of eco-friendly cleaners on the market today. Choose products which will not damage the surface or cause staining.
Ask your installer about maintenance
Some materials will need to be periodically checked, sealed, or re-finished to protect them from everyday wear and tear. Talk to the experts about how best to maintain your bathroom and kitchen sinks!
