Tips for Surviving a Kitchen Remodel

We all know that kitchen remodeling makes us invest so much time in picking out all that it takes to build a kitchen. From contractors to the countertops, cabinets, appliances, and the paint. However, you need a plan to deal with the inconvenience of not being able to access and use your kitchen. With some tips from our kitchen experts, you will learn how to tackle the kitchenless weeks.

Set Up a Temporary Kitchen

If you are doing a project that disconnects big appliances such as the range, fridge, and dishwasher for a portion of the time, you can set up a temporary kitchen. If possible also include a toaster oven, coffee maker, tea kettle, and microwave. Further, you will have to figure out an alternative method to clean and store the dishes. To clean the dishes, just use a sink in the bathroom or laundry room.

Find Alternate Living Spaces

If your family tends to eat in the kitchen, find another place in your home to eat. Think creatively; it could be your outdoor kitchen, a small patio, your garage, or a table in the dining room or living room. Don’t forget to make some space to store cooking utensils, plates, and silverware in your temporary kitchen area during the renovation.

Invest in Disposable Plates and Utensils

Since your access to the kitchen sink will be limited, use paper plates and disposable utensils. Otherwise, the bathroom sink will do it.
