Preparing For Your Kitchen Remodel

You’ve sealed the deal with your local contractor, and you’re about to get the kitchen remodel you’ve always wanted. Before they begin with the remodeling process, have you asked yourself if you are completely prepared to not have access to your kitchen while they are working on it? There are a couple of things to consider before signing the contract to get the kitchen fixed the way you want it. Here is some info on what you should prepare for, and some tips to use to make sure the remodeling phase is as smooth as possible.

Meal Prepping

During the remodeling phase, your kitchen will be in pieces as the workers put everything together. You won’t have regular access to it to cook like you normally do. This means that you should be prepared to eat out, or meal prep by cooking in bulk before the remodel begins.

Move All Items Out of the Kitchen

You will want to remove all items out of the way before construction begins. This includes pictures, cooking utensils, and more. The last thing you want to do is make your remodeling crew work extra to remove items that are cluttering their workspace.

Disposable Plates and Cups

Since you won’t have access to your dishwasher or sink during remodeling, you will want to purchase paper plates and cups to use. These are convenient since you won’t be able to wash your plates once they’ve gotten dirty.

Utilize a Backup Refrigerator

If your refrigerator must be moved during remodel, you will want to use a secondary refrigerator to store your perishables. This will ensure that your food doesn’t get wasted during remodeling.

Cover Your Furniture

If you’re getting your kitchen re-painted, you will want to protect your furniture that is close to the kitchen. Use plastic sheets to cover them during the remodeling phase to ensure that no paint particles accidentally splash in their direction. Paint stains are incredibly difficult to remove, so make sure you take precautionary measures.
