Extend your modular kitchen life with a few simple tricks!
When it comes to choosing a conventional carpenter kitchen or a modern modular kitchen, most people gravitate towards the latter for its obvious benefits. Even when it comes to maintaining the kitchen to look as good as new even years later, modular kitchens emerge victoriously.
Here are 4 simple hacks that you could easily incorporate into your routine and kitchen cleaning schedule to extend your modular kitchen life as a whole.
1. Create a kitchen cleaning schedule (and stick to it)
To keep any kitchen looking fresh as new for a longer span of time, it is important to set up a daily, weekly, monthly and annual cleaning schedule. Try to adhere to the schedule as strictly as possible- we all know how a disciplined life is always the better way forward! Right from the countertops to the cabinets and kitchen appliances, extend your kitchen life and keep a termite and leakage-free kitchen. It is important not to miss the nooks and crannies too.

2. Gentle (opening & closing) does it
It is a universal habit for people to shut their new modular kitchen cabinets and drawers gently over the course of the first year. However, once they get used to it, odds are that these drawers and cabinets become recipients of a little more force. The smooth closures on your cabinets or drawers may get affected with harsh openings and closures. You may also put pressure on the hinges, which then get worn out at an accelerated rate.
Advise your family members and consciously make an effort yourself to be as light as possible when closing cabinets and drawers, especially in the case of soft close cabinets and drawers.
3. Clutter-free kitchen cabinets are the way to go!
Over time, people have the tendency to clutter their kitchen cabinets since the kitchen is a hotspot for collecting clutter. Quit your hoarding tendencies immediately- it’s doing your kitchen cabinets more damage than you think. Based on the intended purpose, cabinets and drawers have a certain weight allowance, crossing which may cause it to sag and alter the alignment. It is also important to remember that cabinets should always be used for the purpose they were meant to serve only.
4. Repair and restore cracks immediately
Though modular kitchens are resilient to damage, in the unlikely event of a crack occurring, it is imperative that you get it addressed by a professional immediately. If not, you risk its propagation and lending your kitchen an unaesthetic vibe. This is quite easily a possibility with a company like Bespoke Decor and its brilliant after-sales service.
