Are you ready for your kitchen renovation? Here’s your guide to thrive!

Kitchen renovations are no small matter, even if you have a small kitchen! A house without a kitchen can feel like no house at all. After all, eating and drinking are necessary to life! It is no wonder that knowing how to survive a kitchen remodel is such a big topic. Here is your guide on how to have a stress-free kitchen renovation!

Plan Well

The first step is to plan well ahead of time. The more thoughtfully you plan, the better you will have a smooth time living without your kitchen. Take an inventory of your kitchen supplies, and write down where each group of items will go temporarily. You could even plan a loose meal plan for the duration of the project.

Set up a Temporary Kitchen

A temporary kitchen will be necessary for preparing your meals at home. A simple setup would be a table with a couple of countertop kitchen appliances and a basket or two of food supplies. A mini fridge could help your meals out even more. You could also use a camping stove so you can cook as you normally would. Kitchens are more flexible than you think! Just be aware that the more pots and pans you use, the more you will need to use your bathroom or laundry sink to wash up.

Eat Cold Foods

Cold or room-temperature foods are easy to have when you can’t cook. Besides, summer is an excellent time to pursue a kitchen renovation, which is when you are most likely to consume refreshing foods like salads, fresh fruits, cold drinks, etc. 

Use Disposable Dishware

Disposable plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery will be your friends. They do not cost too much, and they eliminate a lot of dishwashing that would be difficult without a kitchen. You can easily store these supplies in your temporary kitchen.

Cook Outdoors

Do you have a backyard grill? Have you always wanted one? Now is your chance to make the most of your outdoor grill and hone your grilling skills even more. 

Eat Out

Of course, you don’t have to cook for yourself all the time. You can also order a takeout more or less. If you never cook and always eat out, you will hardly need to use your temporary kitchen at all.

Take Some Time Away

Kitchen renovations can be stressful. Living on a construction site can get noisy and tiresome. If you can, take a break and go on vacation, even if it is just a nearby place where you can still visit the project site.

Stay Excited for Your Kitchen Remodel

Don’t forget to stay excited for the final product. A beautiful new kitchen is worth looking forward to, and watching the project progress is an exciting thing.
