How to Prepare for a Major Kitchen Remodeling Project
Although we’ll do everything we can to make your renovation as stress-free as possible, a major kitchen remodel is bound to disrupt your life. These tips will help you survive your renovation:
- Find Space for a Temporary Kitchen: Since your kitchen won’t be usable for weeks or months, you may want to rely on a temporary kitchen in the meantime. Your temporary kitchen doesn’t have to be fancy. The garage, basement or a corner of the dining room may be the perfect space for your new kitchen. As long as you have space for a small refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, hot plate, and toaster, you’ll have the tools you need to make nutritious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for your family. Don’t forget about your grill. If you’re tired of microwaved meals, grilling chicken breasts, steaks, burgers, and vegetables will add variety to your meals.
- Create Do-It-Yourself Counters: A piece of plywood placed over sawhorses or an old dresser make excellent temporary counters. Dressers also offer space to store food, pots, pans, utensils, and cleaning supplies.
- Figure Out Where You’ll Wash Dishes: A bathroom sink or bathtub or laundry sink may become your temporary dishwashing spot. If you have room in the basement next to your laundry sink, the basement may the ideal spot for your temporary kitchen. If there are no options indoors, consider washing dishes outdoors with a hose and dish basin.
- Choose the Ideal Time for Your Renovation: Spring or summer renovations may make the most sense if you’ll be cooking or cleaning outside. Of course, if you’re used to grilling long past the summer season, a fall or winter remodel probably won’t faze you.
- Plan Ahead: Cereal, sandwiches, and microwave dinners don’t have to be the only options if you’re renovating your New England kitchen. A few weeks before construction starts, spend a weekend cooking and freezing your family’s favorite meals. Throughout the construction process, you’ll be able to enjoy home-cooked meals despite the lack of a full kitchen.
- Use Disposable Plates and Cups: Throwing away plates, cups, and silverware after you're through eating, reduces the amount of time you’ll spend washing dishes. While disposable items may not be the most environmentally friendly choice, compostable options do exist and you’ll only be using these items for a short time.
- Bookmark Take-Out Menus: Take-out food expands your meal options and offers an excellent solution if you’re just too tired to manage a meal in your makeshift kitchen.
- Relocate: If you’re remodeling several rooms in your home in addition to your kitchen, it may make sense to move out of your house until your remodel is complete.
