How To Survive A Kitchen Remodel While Living In The House
Living in your house during a kitchen remodel can be a challenging experience, but there are several steps you can take to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible:
- Create a temporary kitchen: Set up a temporary kitchen in another room of your house, such as the dining room or a spare bedroom. You can use a microwave, toaster oven, and portable cooktop to prepare simple meals and snacks.
- Stock up on disposable plates, cups, and utensils: Using disposable plates, cups, and utensils can make cleanup easier and help you avoid washing dishes in the bathroom sink.
- Protect your belongings: Cover your furniture and belongings in adjacent rooms to protect them from dust and debris. You can also seal off the kitchen area with plastic sheeting to contain the mess.
- Plan for storage: You may need to temporarily relocate items from your kitchen to another room or storage area. Consider renting a storage unit or using a temporary storage container for larger items.
- Stay organized: Keep track of important documents, and invoices related to the remodel in a designated folder or binder. This can help you stay on top of the project and avoid any confusion or miscommunications.
By taking these steps, you can survive a kitchen remodel while living in your house and minimize the disruption to your daily routine. Remember to stay patient, communicate clearly with your contractor, and focus on the end result – a beautiful and functional new kitchen
