Organize and pack your kitchen in boxes

A lot of people don’t plan for this, so make sure that when you box up your kitchen that you keep the items that you use regularly accessible. Put them in a location that you can easily get to, and make sure you mark each box as to what’s in each one and create a map as to where each box is.  By doing this you will easily put your kitchen together when it is completed or if you need something while its being renovated, it can be accessed.

Create a Temporary Kitchen to Make Your Meals

If you have a foldout or a small kitchen table(s) is an effective way to set up a temporary kitchen with items such as your coffee maker, electric skillet as well as any other vital items… wine opener.  Should you have an outside barbecue and it can be used during the kitchen renovation take advantage of it.  Many have a single gas burner as well as the barbecue itself to cook making another temporary cooking area.

Relocate your refrigerator to a usable location

We suggest that you put it in a location as well as any other items that you’re using for cooking to be accessible but out of the way of the work that is being done to your kitchen. Also, you might want to thin out the food in your refrigerator before the work gets started since you will not be able to cook at the level you normally would.

Temporary eating area during kitchen remodelingIf you normally eat in your kitchen choose a different eating area

This is easy, just set up a small table where you can frequently eat and if it is a nice day, and you have outside patio area with furniture, use that as another eating area.

Paper Plates, plastic utensils and paper napkins/towels are your friend

Since your kitchen will be out of commission during the renovation, washing your dishes in the sink or in the dishwasher will not be available.  So, purchase disposable items so that you don’t have to worry about as much cleanup.

Plan on eating out more during the kitchen remodel

Make sure to include in your budget to plan on eating out more often during the renovation of your kitchen.  Whether it be in a restaurant, take out, or microwave meals can help cut down on any cooking that you may have to do.

Expect a lot of noise and dust

There really is no way to get around this, so we suggest that you cover furniture that you’re not using to reduce the dust and even with that said just plan on things being in disarray and dusty.

Yes, there will be noise so if you are at home during the day when we are working on renovating your new kitchen we suggest that you try to put yourself in another area of the house.

Keep your pet calm during kitchen remodelingIf you have a pet, keep them calm during this process

We can guarantee that your pet(s) will have no idea what’s going on and will be scared, curious and unsure as the kitchen remodeling is happening. Make sure that you provide them with a safe location to go so they don’t accidently run out an open door.  We also suggest lots of love and snuggles to help them feel safe and secure.

Keep handy the design plans to check on the work being done and its progression

This is a terrific way to check on the progress of your kitchen remodel, and for us to answer any questions you may have during the process.

Take a Vacation!  If you can, leave the house during the kitchen renovation

Realizing that most cannot take the time off while the work is being done, but if you can it does help relieve having to deal with everything going on.

Try not to worry, if you’ve hired us be confident that you made the right choice.
