Getting Ready for Your Kitchen Remodeling Project

A small studio style kitchen could be remodeled in as little as a day, especially if the cabinet work and counter space is limited. However, for the average family sized kitchen, remodeling could take anything from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the work that needs to be done. Kitchen remodeling where you are going for an entirely new design will take the longest, particularly if you need to relocate plumbing and electrical outlets.

If you’re getting ready for a mid-sized or large kitchen remodeling project, it pays to take some steps to prepare in advance.

Set up a Temporary Kitchen Area

If the work is going to take anything more than a couple of days, then you’ll need to set up a makeshift kitchen to use in the interim. During a large kitchen remodeling project, you won’t be able to access your usual appliances, but you can set up your coffee maker, microwave, and other small appliances on a temporary table away from the work space. This will at least allow you to take care of basics until your new kitchen space is ready.

Move or Cover Valuables for the Duration of the Work

Even with the best contractors, there will be a fair amount of dust circulated around your kitchen and the nearby rooms of your home. In an open plan home, the problem will be particularly noticeable. While contractors will take every available step to limit the production of dust and debris, it is still a good idea to relocate or cover items like televisions, audio systems, and musical instruments, during the kitchen remodeling. It’s also a good idea to remove sculptures or hanging artwork that are in close proximity to the kitchen.

Plan Early, and Ask for an Estimate on Work Duration

When you plan early, any disruption to your normal routine will be minimized. Ask your kitchen remodeling company about how long the work will take, so that you can make appropriate plans for the duration of the renovation. In extreme scenarios, you may want to stay away from home at a hotel, or with family or friends, particularly for larger projects.
