A kitchen renovation is a transformative home project. Perhaps you want to begin kitchen renovations to add new levels of convenience, such as new technology features in your home. You may also want to do this project to improve the interior design, such as by refinishing your cabinets. According to the Woodworking Network, the demand for tall cabinets will continue to increase by 5% annually. No matter your circumstances, it’s essential that you prepare for these renovations. Below, we’ve highlighted four ways to prepare to ensure your lifestyle is not impacted negatively during the project.
Create a Temporary Kitchen Area
Creating a temporary kitchen area guarantees that your household can still make delicious homemade meals during the renovations. The home area to set up this temporary kitchen depends on your house’s size and floor plan. More often than not, this arrangement works best in a dining room or patio space. Set up a portable stove with dishes and other supplies in your designated area and you will be good to go.
Organize Food Carefully
Ensure that all dry and canned food is stored away from your kitchen space before professionals arrive. To guarantee that no food perishes during the project, carefully organize the food in clear storage bins to ensure it’s easy to see where your items are. Good areas to store these bins are next to your temporary kitchen or in a guest room.
Set up a Safe Place for Pets
During kitchen renovations, the space can soon become dangerous for your wandering pets in the household. As a result, you must set up a safe place for pets where they will be comfortable. This space might be a spare bathroom, guest room, or deck area during the day. If you can’t find a space for these furry friends, opt to have them in a family or friend’s home during the renovations.
Stock up on Disposable Items
While your renovation project is taking place in the kitchen, you likely won’t have the opportunity to clean dishes. With this considered, it can be wise to stock up on disposable items before the project. These items include cups, plates, and utensils. Once you have bought these items, you’ll not need to worry about dishes piling up and getting in the way of the professionals.
Be prepared for your future kitchen renovations by following this list above in great detail. By doing this you can be confident that you will not run into any issues. Get in touch with Artistic Cabinet Finishes today to learn more!
