Are you gearing up for an exciting kitchen renovation? The prospect of transforming your cooking space into a dream kitchen with Lancaster Kitchens and Baths is undoubtedly thrilling. However, before you embark on this journey, it’s crucial to prepare your home adequately for a smooth and hassle-free remodeling process. Follow this comprehensive guide to help your family get ready for a kitchen remodel.

Clean Your Kitchen

Before our expert team arrives to work their magic, it’s essential to give your existing kitchen a thorough cleaning. Clear out all the items from your cabinets and pantry, and wipe down the surfaces to remove any dust and dirt. A clean canvas ensures that your kitchen remodeling process starts on the right foot and allows our team to work efficiently.

Box Up Your Belongings

To protect your belongings and keep them organized during the kitchen renovation, pack them carefully into labeled boxes. This way, you’ll know exactly where to find everything when the remodel is complete. And don’t hesitate to box up your dishes and silverware. We recommend using disposable plates, cups, and cutlery to make mealtime easier during the remodeling process — and so you don’t have to worry about washing dishes without a dishwasher!

Set Up a Temporary Kitchen

While your kitchen is being transformed, it’s essential to create a makeshift kitchen in another part of your home. Utilize your dining room or any other available space with access to water and electricity. Set up a toaster oven, microwave, and a small fridge to help you prepare simple meals and snacks.

Plan Easy Meals Ahead of Time

Preparing for a kitchen remodel doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice delicious meals. Before the remodeling work begins, plan easy-to-make meals that require minimal cooking. Prepare some freezer-friendly dishes in advance, so you can simply heat them up in your temporary kitchen when needed. This will save you time and make the remodeling process much more manageable.

Clear a Path

During the kitchen renovation, there will be plenty of activity with contractors and equipment moving around. To ensure safety and efficiency, clear a path from your home’s entryway to the kitchen area. Move any obstacles or furniture that could hinder the remodeling process. This will not only help our team at Lancaster Kitchens and Baths but also reduce the chances of accidents during the project.

Make a Plan for Your Pets

Pets are an integral part of the family, and they may find the remodeling process stressful. Consider their needs and create a safe and quiet space for them away from the construction area. If possible, arrange for a family member or a trusted friend to look after them during the most disruptive stages of the kitchen renovation.
