Staying at Home During Kitchen Remodeling

Staying at Home During Kitchen Remodeling

The process of kitchen remodeling in Orange, similar to other home improvement projects takes a huge amount of time. Considering the scope of the project and the processes involved, its only natural to experience some inconveniences as your kitchen, one of the most important parts of your home will be inoperable for a while. Thankfully, there are ways that can help you “survive” living on your house while the kitchen remodeling takes place.


Setting up a temporary kitchen

If you’re staying at home during a kitchen remodel, you’ll need a space to prepare food while your kitchen is closed off. Don’t worry if this space isn’t ample, as long as it’s clean and functional. The easiest way to set up a temporary kitchen is to use things you already have. You can stack boxes of kitchen stuff on a piece of scrap wood and lay down a plastic table cloth to protect the floor.

Controlling dust

Kitchen remodeling is a dusty job. To keep the dust in the room, you can place plastic sheeting or Cling Covers over the area. This can help prevent dust from settling on the walls and woodwork. You can also use adhesive-backed zippers to close off the area. This way, you can enjoy quiet coffee breaks without being exposed to the dust.

Planning ahead

Before hiring a contractor for kitchen remodeling, decide on a date for the project. Spring is the busiest time of year for contractors. This is when homeowners are eager to begin projects after a long winter. However, waiting until spring may delay your project timeline. Contractors report full spring schedules. If possible, plan your remodeling project for a more convenient time of year. If you’d like to remodel your kitchen in the fall or winter, consider renovating it during the following months.

Using a crockpot

Having a crockpot can be a lifesaver during a kitchen remodeling project. You can put a crockpot meal in the morning and come home to a delicious meal. If you have a crockpot cookbook, you can cook many different meals each week without spending much time in the kitchen. The slow cooker also cooks food much faster than a traditional oven.

Cooking one-pot meals

If your kitchen is undergoing renovation, cooking one-pot meals can be an excellent solution for a quick and easy dinner. Instead of buying pre-made frozen dinners, you can purchase them in smaller portions and freeze them. That way, you can reheat them as needed. Using pre-made salads or taquitos means less prep time, so you can save time and money while enjoying a meal that is not only tasty but also filling. If you are a fan of one-pot cooking, you can make one-pot dinners a potluck, with each person bringing a different dish to share.

Using a microwave

You can use a microwave if it isn’t built-in during your kitchen remodeling. The downside to retrofitting a microwave into a built-in cabinet is that it costs hundreds of dollars and is often out of place. However, installing a microwave on an island is a quick and relatively painless way to provide extra space while making the most of your space.
