Nothing worth doing is ever easy. Living through a remodel is not the simplest task, but it will all be worth it in the long run. Here is some advice to get you through the inconveniences of a kitchen remodel.
Everything but the Kitchen Sink
If your home already has a guesthouse or laundry room with a sink, then these can certainly act as a temporary kitchen during the remodel. If not, then set up a temporary kitchen somewhere else in the house ahead of time. Buying takeout all the time gets hard on your budget, plus you will need room to make the kidâ€™s lunches, brew coffee and pour cereal. You should consider a portion of the garage or back porch as a designated stand-in kitchen with standalone shelving, portable tables and folding chairs.
Small appliances, such as microwaves, slow cookers, toaster ovens and hotplates are invaluable during a kitchen remodel. Either move your refrigerator to your temporary kitchen or find a minifridge on Craigslist
Stock up on biodegradable or recyclable disposable plates, cups and utensils to cut down on dishwashing in the bathtub, sink or a cooler with soap and water. This will make clean up faster and more manageable.
