Any home remodeling project is an exciting process, but it can also be very stressful. It is especially frustrating when you are remodeling your kitchen because you no longer have a space to make your meals. It is important to plan well when you are about to start a kitchen remodel so that you aren’t eating out every single day. Here are some tips on how to survive during a kitchen remodel.
Designate A Temporary Kitchen
Since you won’t be able to use the kitchen area for a while, designate another space in the home to act as the kitchen. You can utilize a open area in the basement, living room, or garage where you can put a few portable tables and necessary kitchen appliances. This will allow you to at least do small things like pour a bowl of cereal or make some coffee in the morning.
Plan Meals Wisely
You want to plan your meals around small, portable appliances that you can move to your temporary kitchen. Things like toasters, microwaves, skillets, and coffee makers can really help you to get through your kitchen remodel. Simplify your meals so that they can easily be made on these smaller, portable appliances. If possible, you can even move your refrigerator to the temporary kitchen or invest in a small mini fridge.
Since you won’t have access to your dishwasher or kitchen sink, you want to invest in disposables that you don’t have to wash. This includes things like paper plates, cups, and utensils. This will save you the trouble of having to find a space to wash your dishes and another area to store them.
It’s a good idea to plan your kitchen remodel for the summer time. This is because when the weather is warm, you can utilize your outdoor grill for cooking which will really take away the stress of not being able to access your kitchen. This will allow you to still be able to make those hearty meals that you want. Summer remodeling is also a good idea because you can plan to take a trip during the time of construction so that you will be away from your home and not have to worry about the limited kitchen access.
