How to keep your kitchen free of clutter


We all know how tough it can be to keep your kitchen clean. We also know that when mess and clutter is allowed to build up, it can be difficult to regain control.

Fortunately, there is plenty you can to do to make sure your kitchen stays tidy. In fact, let’s start at the beginning.

Consider your kitchen design

Whether you’re moving into a new home or refurbishing your old kitchen, it’s important to think about how it will work on a practical level.

Simply put, if you don’t enjoy spending time in your kitchen, you’re unlikely to invest much time in keeping it clean and uncluttered. A spacious, well-lit room with plenty of storage space will ensure your kitchen is a welcoming haven for you and your family.

Choosing an attractive colour scheme for your kitchen will also help. Crisp white or chrome will give your kitchen a clean, modern look, or you could opt for more vibrant shades that truly reflect your personality.

Everything in its place

There can be a lot going on in your kitchen, particularly if you’re fond of cooking. Remember, all these appliances you’re buying have to go somewhere, so think about this before you buy. You don’t want worktops that are too busy, as sooner or later you’ll find you simply don’t have the room to prepare meals in comfort.

Storing items properly will mean you maintain the organisation of your kitchen and can find things easily when you need them.

Each drawer and cupboard should have a purpose, and items should be put back as soon as you’ve finished using or cleaning them. It sounds easy, but it’s amazing how much of a chore this can seem after a long day at work. However, even if we don’t like to admit it, we all know how much easier it will be in the long run.

Kitchen accessories can keep your cooker clean

Oven cleaning is frequently cited as one of the most unpopular kitchen tasks, and it isn’t hard to see why. Who wants to spend their free time scrubbing weeks of built-up grease, wiping food residue from around hobs and getting rid of sauce splashes from the walls?

Of course, there are ways to avoid this. Our Stay-clean Oven Liners will greatly reduce your workload and come as standard with our Delphi and Fleet ranges, while you can prevent walls from getting messy with an attractive splashback to match your cooker.

This sort of mess doesn’t just look unsightly; it can also become a health risk if left for too long. Taking easy precautions to prevent this will give you one less thing to worry about.

High quality cleaning products

No matter how careful you are, every kitchen needs a good clean from time to time. To make this as quick and painless as possible, it helps to get the best cleaning and maintenance products.

The Britannia cleaning range features products specific designed for every appliance in your kitchen, including:

  • Dishwasher

  • Freezer

  • Fridge

  • Kettle

  • Microwave

  • Oven and hob

  • Washing Machine

Simply store these in the cupboard under the sink and you’ll be ready for anything your kitchen can throw at you.

If you’re wondering how often you should clean your kitchen, the honest answer is that it’s best to clean as you go. The sauce spill that could be easily wiped up today will probably need to be scrubbed off tomorrow. Why make more work for yourself?
