The prospect of undergoing a major kitchen remodel can be stressful. After all, the inconvenience of not having your kitchen can be overwhelming. Below are some suggestions to help you gain control during your remodel.
Once your cabinets are ordered you could begin packing away those seldom used items. Use the process to declutter and rid yourself of items you no longer use.
A few days before the installation is scheduled, remove and pack up the remaining items.
As you remove these final items from your cupboards pretend you’re moving by labelling boxes as you pack. This will make the unpacking process go quicker and efficiently.
Set aside any essential items such as a coffee maker, can opener, dish soap or dishes you might need. If you own a free standing microwave oven it will come in handy.
Without a dishwasher or sink many people opt for paper goods, to avoid the extra cost and trash. You could wash dishes in the bathroom sink or a dish pan in the tub.
Make sure your collection of take-out menus is up to date and close at hand, while you may not wish to order out every night it can make life easier on some nights.
Stock a cooler with ice for perishable items or if you have room you could move your fridge to another room.
Make use of the outdoors by cooking on the barbeque weather permitting.
Another alternative is to check out the deli at your local supermarket as prepared meals can be purchased daily and can be a healthier choice than take out every night.
