Remodeling Your Kitchen
Before you can enjoy your new kitchen, we have to get the remodeling done! In order to make this as easy as possible, we've put together some time-tested tips. If you have other suggestions, please let us know and we'd be happy to add them to our list!
Have a safe, enclosed area for the cabinets to be delivered if the construction isn't complete.
Decide where the installers should keep their tools
Prepare and freeze some family favorites for easy re-heating during the construction phase.
Make a list of restaurants you've wanted to try for the nights you just have to get out!
Pack up your kitchen (or bathroom) before the remodeling begins. Use this as an opportunity to do some sorting and cleaning out of items you may not want anymore. Be sure to label your boxes to make unpacking easier.
Store your boxes away from the construction, and be sure your fragile items are well protected.
Plan a location away from the construction to use as your temporary kitchen. The refrigerator can be moved there.
Where will your water source be during this time?
Coffee maker / filters/ coffee
Utensils and paper plates/ cups - get the family ready for some picnics!
Can opener, bottle opener, knives, serving/reheating dishes
Basics - butter, salt, pepper, spices, peanut butter
Dish soap, towels, dishpan
If it's a bathroom remodel, move everything you use on a regular basis to a safe spot where you will have access to it.
Don't forget about your pets - they'll need a space away from the construction while it's under way
Expect some dust... there's no way to avoid it
