Beauty and a home that doesn’t require much effort to maintain can coexist. Life will be less stressful if you choose low-maintenance options for your next remodel. Here are some low-maintenance design tips when remodeling your home’s interior.
Choose a Low-Maintenance and Stain-Resistant Countertop
Countertops such as marble are luxurious and timeless. However, this is a porous natural stone that absorbs stains. Granite is the better option because it is durable and less susceptible to stains and damage. However, like marble, you must seal granite countertops to keep them in pristine condition. However, quartz is an engineered material made from stone chips, resins, and pigments that stands up well to scratches, cuts, and high heat. Also, it doesn’t require staining.
Go for Simplistic Finishes
Stainless steel has been a preferred material for decades. Stainless steel is prone to fingerprints and smudges. However, when choosing dark or black stainless steel, you’ll pick a matte finish that fights off smudges and prints.
Also, regarding kitchen finishes, faucets with a protective coating called physical vapor deposition (PVD) resist scratches and corrosion. PVD comes in nickel, pewter, bronze, gold, and polished brass. Undermount sinks are also another consideration because they make the cleanup process less taxing, and stainless steel will offer sinks top-tier protection against stains, scratches, and impact from sharp objects.
Hardwood Flooring is Easier to Maintain
Carpet in bedroom areas makes the room feel cozier. However, a home with carpet as its primary flooring material will require regular vacuuming and constant worry about spills and stains. If it’s within your budget, it’s worth switching to solid hardwood floors in the kitchen with a factory finish. A manufacturer’s warranty covers most factory finishes. However, it’s still worth putting felt pads under furniture and taking shoes off at entryways to protect your hardwood floor.
