As we mentioned previously, details are important. So add a retro clock to the wall, an antique food scale on the counter top and a charming timer situated on the stove and oven. Even if you want to nix color but still create a retro kitchen black and white can get the job done for you, so don't worry. Use these classic neutrals as the foundation of your space. Breakfast tile countertop bars are a must as they evoke that diner style we all love but also give you the opportunity to create a place to decorate and add your own unique touches as well. Mint green is another go-to color when exploring retro kitchen style. From backsplash to the cabinets, this color works both as accent and as foundation so don’t be afraid to play around with it a bit. Add some throwback signage to the space too! Over the stove, breakfast bar or even creating a gallery wall behind the kitchen table. This too is a way to bring in your own personality.
For everyday care, a mild dish detergent and soft cloth are really all you need. Glass cleaner, a degreaser, Goo Gone, a nonabrasive sponge and a plastic putty knife are also helpful tools, according to Bob Vila. Although quartz resists stains from liquids like wine, vinegar, tea, lemon juice, and soda, or fruits and vegetables, it's still important to wipe spills up right away, before they dry.

Keep a plastic putty knife handy to gently scrape off gum, food, nail polish, paint, or other messes that harden as they dry. For tougher grease clean-up, use a degreaser that will help loosen the grease from the surface. Follow the cleanser manufacturer`s instructions for use. Should your quartz countertop be marred by a permanent marker, use a soft cloth and a product like Goo Gone to safely remove the mark. Rinse well. Quartz doesn't need to be sealed, but an overall deep cleaning is also recommended. experts also recommend a periodic overall deeper general cleaning. To do this, spray a a nonabrasive surface cleaner over the entire countertop and let it sit for 10 minutes. Wipe it up with a soft sponge.
