When considering a kitchen remodel project, one of the most important things to take into consideration is the sink. You can give your kitchen a brand new look by replacing or remodelling the sink or getting an antique one that is in good condition.
According to a study, in the recent years, kitchen remodelling has become an American favorite pastime. As soon as the ideas, dreams and plans of new cabinets, countertops, flooring and appliances solidify, it is important to think about the remodelling process and include plans for a temporary kitchen. However, many are unprepared for the temporary disorder that comes with the remodelling project.
Preparing to Remodel Your Kitchen:
First, you should start packing all your kitchen goods at least a week before the work begins. Ask your contractor how much stuff should be cleared away.
Mark each box with the items inside. Keep a supply for items that you need on a day-to-day basis which includes coffee make and supplies, can opener, cutting board, microwave, utensils and paper plates.
Find an area in your home that serves as temporary kitchen. The dining room is a great idea since there is already a table there. Ensure that you stay close to a sink for an easy clean up. The patio or deck is a great option if the weather permits.
Buy pre-cut or pre-washed vegetables.
Try to cook meals ahead and put them in the freezer. You can microwave them at mealtime.
In chicken recipes, you can purchase pre-roasted chicken from the local deli. You can also take advantage of your outdoor grill.
If you have a motor home or camper, this is great for a temporary kitchen.
Use plastic utensils, paper plates and napkins to lessen clean up. You can use a crockpot for easy, one-dish meals.
Consider the kitchen floors when you prepare for a kitchen remodel. In most cases, you would also be having your floors redone. However, if they have been done recently, you should protect them. Buy several carpet scraps from any carpet store and lay them over the floor to protect the surface. Use duct tape to tape them firmly on the floor.
Remove your dishes to a spare bedroom or any other available room in your house. You can lay them on the floor or on the bed. The floor is preferable to avoid dishes from breaking in case they fall off the bed.
Preparing for a kitchen remodel is very important and helps in making the remodelling process smoother and easier. Set an appointment with the remodelling contractor of your choice and discuss house rules and other concerns related to your remodelling project. The bottom line is to move everything of value in a safe place and provide an easy place for the contractors to work in. Your remodelling project will work out better when the contractors can concentrate on their job. You do not want them to worry on how to maneuver around things and damaging other items around your kitchen. The tips above will help you eliminate worries and concerns that can get in the way of the work.
